The Pacific A7A Ambulance helmet has become the benchmark in the ambulance and paramedic sector in the UK. The A7A helmet offers the most up-to-date and modern form of head protection in a very comfortable, lightweight and wearable package.

Manufactured from Kevlar reinforced composite shells, the A7A helmet gives the perfect combination of safety, balance and wearer comfort. A jet-style design ensures that the A7A is not only functional but looks good too.

Use of fibre-reinforced materials means that Pacific helmets have less mass than those manufactured from thermo plastics.

Use of composites also means that the helmets last and last. Tests prove helmets that have been in service for over 10 years still pass stringent EN 443 testing.

Extreme Face Protection

The A7A represents all the features an EMS professional would expect in a modern helmet. The large integral visor offers excellent peripheral vision with zero distortion.

The EN 166 visor is manufactured from tough, scratch resistant polycarbonate and when not in use, it slots neatly under the helmet protecting it from contamination and damage.

Serviceable Parts

Pacific helmets are fully serviceable. Every part is quickly and easily removable without the use of special tools. Cost of ownership is therefore minimised as repairs and replacement of all components is a simple task.

RFID - Asset Tracking

Asset tracking and management is a vital tool to assist waste reduction and to ensure that total care package providers can effectively trace fire fighting equipment. Vimpex can assist with this by integrating RFID chips into the construction of Pacific helmets.
