V-Gard C1 Hard Hat: A Higher Degree of Heat Protection

May 31, 2023  By V-Gard

The V-Gard C1 Hard Hat helps alleviate heat stress for workers in sunny conditions with ReflectIR™ Thermal Barrier technology that keeps the hard hat interior up to 20°F (11°C) cooler.*

According to OSHA, heat is the leading cause of death among all weather-related phenomena, and it is becoming more dangerous as 18 of the last 19 years were the hottest on record.1

Innovative features of the C1 that help to reduce heat stress:

  • Exclusive patent-pending ReflectIR™ Thermal Barrier keeps the inside of the hard hat up to 20°F cooler*
  • Full brim with 12% greater coverage provides additional shade and sun protection
  • Optional large vents with strategic placement enable improved air flow
  • Premium moisture-wicking sweat band with breathable foam padding provides additional comfort and sweat management

Try the V-Gard C1 at your worksite before purchasing for you organization.
