Cooled Helmets For Qatar Workers To Stay Cool In Summer

An innovative cooled helmet designed and developed by leading researchers in Qatar has the potential to significantly reduce the skin temperature of construction workers by up to 10 degrees centigrade.

This will allow for safer and more comfortable working conditions in the summer months, according to researchers working on the new system at Qatar University.

The concept is to use a solar-powered fan to blow air over a cooled material at the top of the helmet, which will then come down over the front of the person’s face and provide a cooler micro-climate for the worker

An additional weight of just 300 grams and a small solar panel attached to the helmet ensures that the new product is both safe and effective.This type of innovative cooling technology will be ideal for the Middle East, Asia, Australia, Mexico and the USA, all countries with hot climates where this technology can help reduce heatstroke and regulate body temperatures for construction workers significantly.

The additional cost is just twenty dollars in comparison to a normal passive helmet, but the results are felt immediately in terms of less lost time on site due to heat-related complaints

SC Chairman said “As we continue to place workers’ welfare of workers as a top priority across all our construction sites. This project showcases how innovation developed in Qatar is being used to drive forward progress in an area of key importance for the country and the region.[SC]
