The heightec DUON unvented helmet is the First and only helmet that fully conforms to:
European Standard requirements for industrial EN397 and climbing situations EN12492
Why buy two helmets when this one does the job of both, and is easily interchangeable
between the two standards.
So what are the different tests and how do they apply:
EN397 (industrial) has a weak chinstrap to prevent injury if the helmet becomes trapped in machinery etc.
and small vents to prevent items such as sparks hitting the wearer.
EN12492 (mountaineering) has a strong chinstrap so the helmet stays in place in a fall – protecting the head,
and large vents to help prevent workers getting too hot – an occupational health improvement.
also conforms to MM 440 V a.c.
The DUON helmet has been successfully tested following accelerated UV exposure (the equivalent of 25 years in Northern Europe
or 10 years anywhere in the world including Saudi Arabia). This was based on 40 hours per week average exposure.
30mm ‘T-slot’ side fittings for standard ear defenders etc.
Clips for elastic strap mounted lights, cameras etc.
Brackets front and rear for popular cap lamps and other accessories.
Main adjustment to small/medium/large helps keep the helmet centred on the head.
Fine adjustment by ratchet wheel, can be operated with one hand even whilst being worn.
Headband height adjustment allows user to maintain field of view.
6 point head cradle for stability.
