SD Platinum visor
Our lightweight Platinum full-face blast visor is 20% lighter than our popular Standard model. It is made using 5mm untreated polycarbonate, as required in the UN’s IMAS 10.30.
The head-frame supplied is our latest “Comfort”® model with two Velcro fixing straps across the back of the head. This head-frame includes a padded forehead strip than should be removed and washed regularly.
The head-frame is made from ballistic polyamide for durability. The fixings are made from heat-formed polycarbonate, which provides durability
and flexibility. The visor face bolts to the fixings to prevent the visor being raised carelessly at the wrong times.
If there is too much pressure on the sides of the head, the user can remove the visor bolts and reposition the head-frame supports on the outside of the visor. This makes the frame a full 2cm wider. The Nylock® fixing bolts should be tightened after adjustment so that it is not possible to lift the visor face during use.
Your organisation’s logo (one colour) can be printed onto the visor at no extra cost.
An optional Scratch Shield [SKU1016] is available. This is a thin sheet of polycarbonate that mounts securely over
the visor to protect it from scratches during use, storage and transport. It
has also been shown to add to the overall ballistic performance of the visor, although we make no claims for this in our specifications.
The Scratch-Shield should be replaced whenever it becomes scratched - which is a simple and low-cost way of ensuring that your deminers can always see clearly.
A simple chin-strap can be included if required, but is not recommended for safety reasons.

Polycarbonate degrades in sunlight
so we recommend that visors should usually be replaced each year - a recommendation
also made by UNMAS (see Section 11 in this link to an UNMAS Technical Note for Mine Action).
