Hastings, Inc. Announces New Patented Bucket Barricade
July 8, 2011
Hastings, Mich. - Hastings, a worldwide manufacturer of hotline tools and equipment announces a new lineman innovation, the Bucket Barricade . This patented new product (US 7.806.231 7 & US 7.721.848) gives linemen added protection when working on high voltage connections.
Bucket Barricade is uniquely 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, that 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.
This new product does more than shield from electrical arc and arc flashes. Bucket Barricade also protects against nasty wind and weather conditions and transformer oil spray.

Adjusts to four different heights with one-hand deployment
Easy to stow design
Bucket Barricade fits easily into any lift bucket. The handy tool board frees up the worker, and can adjust to four different heights that lock in position automatically. Its one-hand deployment makes Bucket Barricade easy to reposition while in the air.
