Adding accessories

VERTEX and ALVEO helmets adapt to your lighting needs and additional protection requirements in seconds. For self-protection: the user can install a protective VIZIR, VIZIR SHADOW or VIZEN eye shield using the two side inserts, and can add hearing protection with the two side slots. For lighting: each helmet has a front and rear mounting slot for attachment of a PIXA or ULTRA VARIO headlamp, and four positioning hooks for mounting a headlamp with an elastic headband.

Standard customization

Each user can adapt his/her VERTEX or ALVEO helmet according to the need:

  • sheet of transparent stickers: allows the user to display a personal marking on the helmet
  • page of reflective stickers: provides better visibility in the dark
  • absorbent foam: textile foam ensures better absorption of perspiration, needs regular maintenance
  • replacement foams: foams similar to those provided with each helmet. They do not absorb perspiration

Comfortable construction

Comfortable helmet construction

VERTEX

VERTEX helmets have a six-point webbing suspension system, conforming to the shape of the head for maximum comfort. Shock absorption is achieved through deformation of the shell.

Weight: 455 g

Lightweight construction

ALVEO

ALVEO helmets have an internal expanded polystyrene foam liner for reduced weight. Shock is absorbed by deformation of the expanded polystyrene liner.

Weight: 350 g

In the absence of specific European helmet standards for work at height, Petzl applies different existing standards to develop its line of helmets suited to the needs of professionals.

Helmets (NEW)

Essential for work at height and certain industrial activities, helmets give the user effective protection from falling objects, or if the person him/herself falls. Thanks to a very secure fit on the head, Petzl helmets are comfortable to wear in any situation. With a complete line of entirely modular accessories, they meet the diverse needs of professionals.

Excellent fit on the head

CENTERFIT adjustment

CENTERFIT adjustment

The CENTERFIT adjustment system allows the helmet to be perfectly centered on the head. The headband is easy to adjust by simultaneously rotating the two side adjustment wheels, even while wearing gloves.

System

FLIP&FIT system

The FLIP&FIT system immediately positions the headband in a low position, to guarantee that the helmet fits securely on the head. The headband folds into the shell for easy storage and transport.

DUAL chinstrap strength is adjustable, to adapt to any work situation

Chinstrap

The DUAL chinstrap allows the worker to adjust chinstrap strength in order to adapt the helmet to different environments: work at height (EN 12492) or on the ground (EN 397).

The clip has two positions, corresponding to the following two uses:

- higher strength to limit the risk of the helmet coming off in a fall (strength greater than 50 daN)

- lower strength to limit the risk of strangulation, by releasing if snagged when user is at ground level (strength lower than 25 daN)
