SATA Vision 2000 is a lightweight, comfortable breathing hood that thoroughly protects the face, hair and neck from over spray. It is also suitable for persons wearing glasses and persons with short beards or mustaches. Fresh air is supplied steadily through a silencer to the hood without drafts. The air supply has a variable adjustment according to the users requirements, while a shut-off system prevents airflow from being completely shut off. The compact activated charcoal filter is worn on the belt in a protective cage and removes oil vapor and gases. A thin transparent visor sheet prevents reflections and distortion free vision. If the visor sheet becomes contaminated by over spray, it can be replaced quickly and easily.
