Power visor looks like a safe bet

SAFEGUARD your health when working with poultry or on other hazardous farm tasks with a Turbovisor, advises supplier Pulsafe.

Its range of power-assisted respirators combine respiratory protection and impact shielding for the eyes and face, it says.

Turbovisors feature either a head or waist-mounted battery pack. They are also lightweight and designed to be worn for long periods without causing neck strain, claims Pulsafe.

Charcoal filters, gas welding shades and disposable snap-on face skirts in various materials are also available.

A turbovisor with an eight-hour, waist-mounted battery pack costs £245, or with a six-hour, head-mounted battery pack costs £239 (01827-55564).
