Use of fibre-reinforced materials means the helmets have less mass than those manufactured from thermo-plastics. A lightweight helmet ensures all users can concentrate on their job rather than neck ache.
Design features include EN 14458 internal bubble face shield and unique One-Touch EN 166 eye protector. Accentuated shell lines provide improved shock absorption and structural rigidity.
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 Eye and Face Protection
The unique One-Touch eye-guard feature means that contaminated hands need not interfere with operation of eye protection, it also means no more fiddling with knobs which are difficult to turn with some firefighting gloves. If preferred, a manually operated version can be supplied.
The Structural Fire Fighting Helmet represents all of the features a fire fighter would expect in a modern helmet. The large integral bubble visor offers excellent peripheral vision with zero distortion.
Manufactured from tough, scratch resistant polycarbonate and meeting EN 14458, when not in use it slots neatly under the helmet protecting it from contamination and damage.
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.
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 the helmets.
