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
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.
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
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)
Solution for different protection needs
Extensive line of protective eye and face shields, headlamps and accessories
- eye shields, face shields for protection against electric arc hazards, specific shields for tree care
- headlamps for lighting
- nametag holder, nape protector, helmet protectors, chinstraps
Available in assorted colors
VERTEX helmets are available in seven standard colors; STRATO helmets are available in four colors. VERTEX and STRATO helmets are also available in two HI-VIZ versions, with a fluorescent outer shell (yellow or orange), phosphorescent clips and reflective bands, for optimal visibility of the worker, day or night.
Depending on the model, Petzl helmets meet the requirements for the following certifications:
- European EN 397, EN 12492 and EN 50365
- American ANSI Z89.1
- Canadian CSA Z94.1
