Air helmet given seal of approval

IMPROVED sealing has been added to the latest version of Racal Health & Safetys Airstream helmet.

The helmets basic design follows the same working principle as that used on the original Airstream, which was first introduced in 1976. A motor draws air through a filter at the back of the helmet and supplies it to the wearers face behind a clear plastic safety visor.

Price of the standard anti-dust model is £240 (01925-234656).
