Turtle Tough Infrared Windows: Visual Windows

Visual Window

Opening energized electrical equipment is forbidden, with few exceptions, by electrical safety standards like NFPA 70E and CSA Z462. When open-panel work is permitted, workers must utilize restrictive work practices and PPE.

Turtle Tough inspection windows are an easy way to enable closed-panel visual access in compliance with the standards. The resulting work process is far safer, more efficient and de-risked.
