This means that for the first time, high performance 3M face shields can be attached to a G3000 safety helmet by 3M. The system utilises 3M's new V5 Face Shield Carrier, which allows the face shields to simply 'snap' into the face shield carrier, making it quick and easy for the user.
The V5 Face Shield Carrier, as part of the V5 Face Shield System, enables workers to wear a combination of head, face, eye and hearing protection at any one time.
It is compatible with a range of 3M mesh face shields (5B/C/J) and a polycarbonate face shield (5F-1), which are said to offer excellent protection against high speed particles both from the front and the sides of the face. For high noise environments, hearing protection and communication solutions can also be added to the system.
