Sharjah City Municipality announces the invention of a hat from consumable materials to reduce heat and humidity.
Sharjah Municipality (SM) said it provided its employees of the supporting groups working in the field with hats which have fans installed on their sides.
Dr Abdullah Ali Al Qaidi, Assistant Director General for the Institutional Support Sector at the municipality, explained that the hat is one of the innovative projects adopted by the municipality to preserve the environment and optimise the use of available resources. He added that the municipality has completed about 50 hats as a first stage.
Al Qaidi indicated that the municipality is keen to protect the supporting groups from heat exhaustion during the summer through continuous workshops and awareness sessions, and also by providing them with all necessary protective equipment, distributing cold drinks, in addition to its commitment to the decision to ban work at noon.
Engineer Hamid Al Banna, Director of the Transportation Department, said the new hat was made from recycled material. “The base consists of light metal wires covered with shade nets. Reflective signals were installed on them so as to make the wearer visible at night,” Al Banna added.
He pointed out that the fans work continuously for 3 hours and can be recharged, and that the municipality will develop the hat to run on solar energy.
