Ballast Workers To Wear Forced Air Masks

Ballast Workers To Wear Forced Air Masks

During Ballast Operations, high amounts of dust which contains an alarming amount of silicone residue are emitted. Wearing a forced air mask while carrying out operation promotes confidence and comfort, protecting against the high levels of silicone dust and dirty environments. 

Don't compromise your forced air mask. With our complete Ballast Communication solution, a multitude of Network Rail approved headsets and interfaces are available to choose from, suitable for many applications and easily interchangeable. 

dBD Communications are able to offer competitive Duplex solutions to keep you breathing safely and communicating freely.

Different variants are available depending on the sort of solution you need. For full situational awareness, our Freedom options lead the way. The Freedom unit benefits from added versatility as when ballast operation finishes, the user can revert back to a more comfortable and appropriate fitting. For noisier environments, our Blocked, Standard and Lighter headsets would be the ideal solution. With features such as 20dB noise protection or partial special awareness, freedom of movement is retained with the safety of using a forced air mask and throat mic.

During long shifts a forced air mask and throat mic can grow uncomfortable, especially for 12 hours. The Freedom Unit benefits from our new range of interchangeable ear pieces so the user can easily switch back to a more comfortable solution when dust protection is not needed.
