High performance protection

Operator visibility has been at the forefront of the Nova 3 design, and we’ve achieved this by incorporating a large panoramic visor. This provides operators with an uncompromised field of view, which supports greater and precision when blasting. When teamed with our cassette lens system, this ensures your field of view is always fresh by simply peeling away a protective layer to reveal a clean lens underneath.

CA Hull

"It’s just all around comfortable. Shields are great. I love the tear aways. That’s the only ones I use. So that way I don’t have to shut off during production time. It’s less time down for me."
