Wearers of PPE performing heavy work in hot and humid conditions are not only at risk of reduced concentration, productivity and safety – Heat stress can result in illness, injury or, in cases of heat stroke, even death if the symptoms are not treated early. Despite this, each year, more instances of heat-related illness occur globally among PPE wearers.

The New Kalis Dry Cooling helmet accessories are designed to target the forehead and the crown of the head. This new technology keeps the wearer 100% dry while offering superior cooling benefits of 15◦C below ambient temperature. It lasts up to 4 times longer than current wet cooling alternatives, is anti-bacterial and machine washable.
How does KALIS Dry Cooling technology work?
The KALIS system cools the wearer by utilitising energy from the water inside the pad. The water vapour escapes through the porous material and evaporates, cooling the user. The KALIS Dry Cooling System therefore works best in humid environments; the more airflow, the better the cooling effect.
But Dry Cooling’s advantages go beyond performance. Due to its longer-lasting cooling benefits and ability to be activated 750 times, this technology has significant cost benefits when measured over a 5 year period.
The KALIS Dry Cooling System is compatible with all Centurion helmets and is our latest step in making safe safer – providing the wearer comfort that aids compliance and reducing the risks of heat in the workplace.
