Choice of protective helmet
When choosing a helmet type, consider the factors and risks associated with your work.
Your helmet should feel comfortable, be lightweight and balance on your head so you avoid overloading the neck and neck muscles.
For use in warm environments, a safety helmet with ventilation is a good idea. If you are working in a cold environment, you should look for a helmet that can be worn with a helmet cap.
The most advanced helmets have good, interchangeable sweat belts and are designed so that different types of accessories such as glasses, visors, hearing protectors and chin straps can be mounted.

The durability and maintenance of your safety helmet
Your helmet must be maintained and stored as stated in the helmet's instruction manual. You should regularly check your protective helmet. If it has chinks, cracks or other damages, it should be discarded.
There is no standard for the durability of a helmet. It depends on the cold, heat, bright light, moisture, sweat and agents applied to the skin or hair. However, most manufacturers guarantee a protection effect of five years from the date of production. This is evident from the helmet marking.
Safety helmet with UV indicator
When it comes to exposure from UV rays, it is difficult to give a general estimate of lifetime and replacement date. Therefore, we can provide helmets with a red UV indicator that shows when the helmet material is broken down and needs to be changed.
