Workwear Keeps You Cool In Extreme Heat
Zippkool work wear clothing products create an artificial airflow around a personís body so that sweat is vaporized faster, allowing a worker to keep their body temperature lower. The products are made of specially-woven non air-permeable fabric that prevents air from exiting a jacket, instead allowing it to circulate around the body. Imbedded in the jacket is a super light-weight fan, powered by a lithium battery, that can blow up to 7.8 gallons of air per second. The fan vacuums in 20 liters of air per second and carries it out out through the ventilated collar and cuffs.
Wearing Zipkool clothing reduces heat fatigue and increases productivity because workers stay cool. Studies done by the company show that their jackets reduce temperature by 9 degrees and decrease humidity by 49 percent, so work can get done even in extremely hot conditions.
The company markets high visibility orange or yellow cooling jackets compatible with safety harnesses and OSHA compatible high visibility neck shades that move air directly around the inside of hard hats. Other products include long or short-sleeve work shirts and lightweight cooling jackets.
Battery packs are available in four sizes from 3V to 7.4V that move 3 to 7.8 gals. of air per second. Battery life ranges from 5.5 to 24 hrs. depending on output.
Cooling vests and jackets sell for about $150.
