The H-700 Series Uvicator Sensor hard hat changes color from red to white as it is exposed to UV light, alerting the wearer that the hard hat needs to be replaced. Features include a replaceable brow pad, a short brim for better upward visibility, slots for accessory attachment and an optional six-point strap.
