August 6, 2013, Redlands, Calif. - Southern California-based Protecto Products, a designer and manufacturer of reflective clothing, has introduced a new series of reflective hard hats.
Unlike traditional hard hats, Protecto’s reflective hard hats can be identified by their silver strip patterns that provide high visibility for those working in the utility, construction, mining, freight, cargo, and other industries where headwear protection and visibility are critical to function and safety.
“Wearing a safety hat offers great protection in the workplace but it can be difficult to clearly distinguish an individual in a low visibility environment’, says Serge Laraque, vice president of marketing.
“This is where reflective, high visibility gear becomes so important. Reflective construction hard hats diminish the amount of head and bodily injuries and are a must in the commercial and industrial world today.”
Protecto offers three styles of reflective hard hats: the Americana, Liberty, and Omega. Each is visible from side, back, front, and top angles. Protecto also offers peel-and-stick reflective silver strip kits to retrofit existing hard hats regardless of style, model, and size. They are molded from high-density polyethylene.
