As we see temperatures continuing to rise throughout the globe each year, the risk of dying from heat exposure has become a very real health concern.
Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
The Kestrel Meter 4400 Heat Stress Monitor is now available at KestrelMeters.com, the online retailer of Kestrel weather meters recently announced. Designed for those who train outdoors, including members of the military, athletes, firefighters and construction workers, the Kestrel Heat Stress meter monitors the temperature and several other atmospheric readings, sounding an alarm when the environment becomes too dangerous for physical activity. The heat stress monitor from Kestrel was created to help reduce the risk of overexposure for those who work or train outdoors in an effort to reduce the injuries and even cases of death occurring as a result of being in an overheated situation.
According to Bob Smith, KestrelMeters.com spokesman, using the new heat monitor from Kestrel is an easy way to prevent heat-related injuries and even death, “As we see temperatures continuing to rise throughout the globe each year, the risk of dying from heat exposure has become a very real health concern. We can prevent these tragedies from occurring by using a reliable tool like the Kestrel 4400, which monitors weather conditions while people are out in the field working or training for sports.”
The Kestrel 4400, which can be purchased directly at KestrelMeters.com, monitors a variety of weather variables, including wind speed, temperature, altitude, crosswind, barometric pressure and relative humidity. In addition, the easy to use heat meter from Kestrel also tracks the important Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (“WBGT”), the Thermal Work Limit (“TWL”) and the Mean Radiant Temperature (“MRT”). Smith added “Getting an accurate heat stress reading requires much more than just tracking the temperature with a thermometer. For real accuracy, you have to monitor several different factors in order to get a true picture of how the heat will affect those who are working or training outdoors.”
Kestrel sells top of the line wind meters and handheld weather meters that are designed to be easy to use, highly durable and portable. The company provides products for a wide range of professionals, including firefighters, farmers, HVAC techs and military personnel all over the world.
