World’s first AC helmet goes global from India Pavilion

Telangana startup joins hand with NIA for marketing it in UAE & other GCC countries

DUBAI, NOVEMBER 10, 2021: World’s first AC safety helmet, which is designed and manufactured by India’s award-winning tech and safety start-up Jarsh Safety for the outdoor workforce and field executives was launched today in India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai during Telangana Week.

The helmet will be distributed in the UAE market by Dubai’s NIA Limited, which is also the exclusive regional distributor for a wide range of consumer electronics and home appliances.

This product launch is part of the India Innovation Hub initiative by the Indian Pavilion at the World Expo 2020 wherein the pavilion is showcasing the top 500 most-reputed startups from India. The project is working under the guidance of the Consul General of India in Dubai Dr Aman Puri and with the support of the Indian Diaspora and Prominent Investor Institutions.

The Jarsh-NIA AC Helmet works on patented solid-state cooling technology to provide cooling up to 24ºC. The premium model for senior executives has a battery life of two hours while the heavy-duty model for the skilled workforce has a 10-hour battery backup. Four vents across the helmet provide a uniform cooling experience, keeping the user sweat-free, comfortable and productive on the job.

India is one of the biggest startup hubs and the country is on its way to becoming the innovation capital of the world. India pavilion at Expo 2020 is bringing together the next-generation startup and leaders to discuss and share pertinent ideas, harness collective knowledge and experiences, and frame innovative solutions for a better future.

Congratulating Jarsh safety & NIA, Mr Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary of ITE&C Department said, “This is a proud moment for all of us at Telangana when a homegrown startup has been able to close the national boundaries and has gone global. An AC helmet is a revolutionary idea and it’s a matter of pride for us that Jarsh safety has transformed this idea into a financially viable project.”

“This is another great occasion when an Indian company is making products for the world, which is a testament to our Hon’ble PM’s vision of Make in India’s product going global,” added Mr Ranjan.

Talking about his innovation, Mr Kausthub Kaundinya, CEO of Jarsh Safety said, “The Jarsh-NIA AC Safety Helmet is a game-changer for the construction and outdoor workforce, especially in a region that is characterised by extreme working conditions during the summer months.”

“We started our journey from a garage office and, over the years, brought smiles to thousands of workers across India. Jarsh Safety is now going global, and we strongly believe that the joint NIA-Jarsh mission can help alleviate the working conditions of the workforce across the world.” He further thanked FICCI for providing the platform to launch in UAE, added Mr Kaundinya.

The Jarsh-NIA AC Helmet offers a unique opportunity for construction firms and industrial units to prioritise the comfort of their workforce without compromising on productivity. The use of the AC Helmet is not only socially responsible, but it also offers commercial benefits as studies have shown that extreme temperatures can cause thermal exhaustion and heat stress, leading to a decline in productivity.

Mr Kamran Birjees Khan, Chief Executive Officer of NIA Limited said that our product is in line with the UAE Government’s endeavours to advance workforce welfare standards, NIA Limited is proud to introduce to the UAE and the wider region this game-changing safety and comfort gear from Jarsh Safety, India’s award-winning start-up.

“The world’s first AC Safety Helmet is designed to keep the industrial, construction and other outdoor workforce and executives comfortable while in a high-temperature environment,” added Mr Khan.
