The hood was developed by Honeywell First Responder, whose products range from helmets to boots to respiratory gear and are used by 80 percent of the 20 largest municipal fire departments in North America. The particulate-blocking protection of the Honeywell Life Guard Hood is laboratory-proven and certified by the National Fire Protection Association. www.honeywell.com. (877) 841-2840.
HalenHardy’s SPILLBOA™ SORBENT BARRIER contains spills quickly to keep them from spreading. The patent-pending SpillBoa™ sorbent barrier is a five- × 25-foot “flat boom” that coils up into a compact 16-inch diameter with a weight of just four pounds.
Its flat profile allows more surface contact, which helps each SpillBoa barrier absorb oils/fuels 300- to 500-percent faster than traditional “overstuffed” booms and socks. Plus, the innovative design holds back many more gallons of spilled material until cleanup crews arrive. The SpillBoa barrier also floats on water and holds back oil spills. www.SpillBoa.com.
