Guidance for choosing the right safety equipment
Shot blasting helmets
Before acquiring a new shot blasting helmet with fresh air supply you should consider to use the least dusty abrasives, or to increase the air ventilation in the room where the shot blasting takes place. Abrasive blasting respirators with fresh air supply are to be used during the shot blasting process as the air is polluted to such an extent that this kind of safety equipment is necessary to wear while staying in the shot blasting room. And you also need it while cleaning the object and the room after the shot blasting process.
Dust and shotblasting suits
For shot blasting we recommend using a shot blasting suit. A suit to be used for abrasive blasting provides a perfect protection against dust as well as the recoil of the abrasives during the shot blasting process. Read more about our different kinds of suits here.
