Head Protection Information

Safety Helmet Retractable Eyeshield

Get The Right Protection….

Safety helmets are required where there is a risk of injury from falling objects. The EN 397 standard specifies the performance requirements for safety helmets.

Bump Caps or scalp protectors may be used where there is a risk of accidental bumping of the head, for example where there are low overhead pipes and confined spaces. Bump caps are not a substitute for safety helmets and must not be used to protect against the risk of falling objects.

The Full Range - We Have It Covered….

Protec Direct offers a wide range of head protection for all working environments. From bump caps and standard safety helmets through to helmets where specialist protection is required such as forestry, molten metal or chemical splash resistance. Safety helmets can even be fitted with visors for eye protection and clip-in ear defenders for hearing protection.

Protec Direct offers a helmet branding service for personalisation with a company name or logo.
