Honeywell has scored wins in three separate design awards for products created for industrial safety.
The IF Design, Red Dot and Good Design Best 100 panels all picked a number of the firm’s creations produced by Honeywell Industrial Safety.
The cited products include:
Searchzone Sonik (Red Dot, iF) ultrasonic gas leak detector
Rig Dog Xtreme (Best 100/Good Design, Red Dot, iF awards), impact/cut-resistant gloves
Verishield (Red Dot, iF Design awards), ergonomic earmuff
Pikachu (Red Dot Award), full-body harness
The Searchzone Sonik detector listens from a distance for the sound signature produced by pressurised gas leaks instead of requiring a gas cloud to come in contact with the device. Sound is unaffected by wind and other environmental conditions that may dilute or divert a gas cloud.
Rig Dog Xtreme gloves include lightweight dexterity and high visibility colours that increase low light safety awareness and aid communication gestures between users working in extreme conditions.
Verishield [pictured] provides lightweight design and ‘memory’ foam cushions are optimised for comfort and a more consistently sealed fit that helps maintain noise attenuation capacity.
Pikachu is intended to protect workers at heights or in confined spaces where electrical arc flash hazards are present. The harness features arc flash resistant materials, electrical insulation properties and a global anthropometric fit.
Ravi Adapathya, head of experience design, Honeywell Safety & Productivity Solutions, remarked: “Honeywell has a long history of innovation, our global design teams strive to create products that are functional, easy to use, and compelling by partnering with our customers to understand their needs and the environments in which they operate.”
