What is the best facemask for freezer warehouse workers?

The importance of keeping your head, neck and shoulders warm while working in a cold chain environment.

What is the best headgear to protect your health in cold conditions?

First, let’s simply discuss the obvious elephant in the room…your head and northern regions of the body have less subcutaneous fat and other bio-thermal ingredients to protect your skin and internal organs (and yes we mean your brain) during below average temperatures. Freezer and cooler warehouses can range in temperatures from a frigid negative -50 degrees Fahrenheit to chilly plus 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

Avaska is known as the freezer wear for the pro, and we mean it. We protect the freezer work force from the elements of cold with an emphasis on protecting your body. The CDC (center for disease control in the US) is noted that prolonged exposure to cold will eventually use up your body’s stored energy. The result can lead to hypothermia and a body temperature that is too low affects the brain, making it harder and more difficult for to think clearly or move well.

So what is the solution to protect your skin and head while staying comfortable and productive?

Protect your brain and be the most productive warehouse worker possible by utilizing freezer gear accessories that include balaclavas, masks, knit hats and neck tubes.

What are the differences, and which is best for your situation when fighting the cold inside or out?
