The following is an excerpt from a posting on UtilityProducts.com:
Hastings, a manufacturer of hotline tools and equipment, announces a new lineman innovation, the Bucket Barricade. This patented product gives linemen added protection when working on high voltage connections.
Bucket Barricade is designed to fit inside the lift bucket and gives added face and body protection against sudden releases of energy that can occur during an electrical flash. Unlike face shields-which can fog up and obstruct visibility, creating a potential hazard-the patented design of the Bucket Barricade allows airflow and guards the face and body with one solid sheet of clear, high dielectric impact resistant material.
