NIA unveils world’s first AC safety helmet for construction workers at Expo 2020 Dubai

The product launch is part of the India Innovation Hub initiative by the Indian Pavilion at the World Expo 2020

The world’s first AC safety helmet, designed and manufactured by India’s tech and safety startup Jarsh Safety for the outdoor workforce and field executives, was unveiled during Telangana Week at the India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Jarsh-NIA AC helmet works on patented solid-state cooling technology to provide cooling up to 24ºC. The premium model for senior executives has a battery life of two hours while the heavy-duty model for the skilled workforce has a 10-hour battery backup. Four vents across the helmet provide a uniform cooling experience, keeping the user sweat-free, comfortable and productive on the job.

The helmet will be distributed in the UAE market by Dubai’s NIA Limited, which is also the exclusive regional distributor for a wide range of consumer electronics and home appliances.

This product launch is part of the India Innovation Hub initiative by the Indian Pavilion at the World Expo 2020 wherein the pavilion is showcasing the 500 startups from India.

The project is working under the guidance of the Consul General of India in Dubai Dr Aman Puri and with the support of the Indian diaspora and investor institutions.

Talking about his innovation, Kausthub Kaundinya, CEO of Jarsh Safety said, “We started our journey from a garage office and, over the years, brought smiles to thousands of workers across India. Jarsh Safety is now going global, and we strongly believe that the joint NIA-Jarsh mission can help alleviate the working conditions of the workforce across the world.” He further thanked FICCI for providing the platform to launch in UAE, added Mr Kaundinya.

The Jarsh-NIA AC helmet offers opportunity for construction firms and industrial units to prioritise the comfort of their workforce without compromising on productivity.

The use of the AC helmet is not only socially responsible, but it also offers commercial benefits as studies have shown that extreme temperatures can cause thermal exhaustion and heat stress, leading to a decline in productivity.

“The world’s first AC Safety Helmet is designed to keep the industrial, construction and other outdoor workforce and executives comfortable while in a high-temperature environment,” said Kamran Birjees Khan, CEO of NIA Limited.
