Revolutionary Cooling Hard Hat

Air2O IceCaps: the world’s first solar-powered and phase change cooling hard hat

Working with scientists at Qatar University, Air2O developed IceCaps, a revolutionary cooling hard hat combining solar powered and phase change materials. Created initially for workers building the FIFA World Cup Stadiums in Qatar, this innovative product is now available globally where comfort, health and safety are a concern.

IceCap pioneering technology can reduce body temperature by up to 10 degreesĀ  CĀ  (18 degrees F).

How it Works

  • A fan at the rear of the helmet blows air over a cold pack and onto the person’s face – reducing skin temperature by up to 10 degrees C (18 degrees F).
  • The helmets can provide cooling in hot temperatures for up to four hours.
  • The solar powered fan with battery back-up blows cold air down across the person’s face effectively creating a cooler micro-climate for workers.
