Product Description

Protect your head The deformation of the outer shell, as well as its closed shell, reduces shock absorption and shields your head from electrical risk and metal splashes.
It stays put The strong chin strap (more than 50 daN) minimizes the risk of the helmet flying over one's head after falling.
A Headband adjustment system called CenterFit lets you adjust the headband so that the helmet will stay centered.
With VERTEX BEST's two sizes of headband foam, you can find the perfect fit.

Questions & Answers

Has this hard hat been rated as a class 4 hard hat?

My understanding of a Class 4 is a little unclear. A hardhat is a type I or type II form of headwear These are Type II and have classed as G, E and F (Reverse) Low Temperature, (LT) Low Visibility, and (HV) High Visibility certifications are optional. The 2009 Type I Class E LT (USA) , the CEN L94-2009 (Europe) , and the CSA Z94-2009 have been issued. The standards are Type I Class E (Canada), the Electronic Absorption Course (Russia)and EN 397 (Low Temp, Molten Splash, Electrical, Mechanical Impact), EN 50365 (Electrical), and

Okay, would like to know if it meets CE EN 397, CE EN 50365, and ANSI Z89 standards. A number of 2009 type I class E vehicles were seized This standard was developed by ASTM This test was conducted according to ANSI Z89 standard, type I class C (4). What type of 2009 are we talking about?

EN 397 is an EN standard for civil engineering products. I agree to the following CE EN 50365 standard I agree with the ANSI Z89 standard. The 2009 type I class E aircraft is described below I agree with the ANSI Z89 standard. The same type I class C(4) as in the 2009 calendar year In other words, if a build qualifies for Class E, it will qualify for Class C, but not the other way around.

My old helmet does not have chin-straps that can be replaced and detachable, this one has them. Is this a newer model, and, why is this helmet only shown in one picture?

We have informed Amazon of the error. The picture corresponding to the helmet is incorrect. Vertex Best's Hi Viz helmet (A10BYA HV) uses the same design as the company's other helmets.

Does this model resemble that worn by the famous "white helmet" rescue team in Syria?

Petzl Vetex Best and Petzl Nao headlamps are worn by the UNDERCOVER WHITE HELMETS.

Selected User Reviews For PETZL - Vertex Best, Helmet for Work at Height and Rescue

I think this helmet is The helmet makes a great choice for road construction at night when construction lanes are closed
5/5

My initial purchase was two helmets to try out on two of the five guys working at night and now the rest of the crew wants one too! The helmet does not have a ridge vent, though. However, this one is a happy one for the employee wearing it. We typically outfit our crews with white hard hats as a standard. A major problem with the helmets we purchase at work as a company is that they fall off, are uncomfortable to wear for long periods during work, do not have the ability to mount headlamps, and cause excessive sweating. There are six points of attachment on these helmets. This harness is a huge improvement since my company buys the stock four point harnesses from the factory. It is very simple to adjust the harness with the rolling wheel. In order for the helmet to be secured, it has a chin strap. There are also different foam pads included with Petzl so there are options for A helmet that is more comfortable will be used more often. These helmets, however, do not fall off into traffic like hard hats do. In order to work at night, I have purchased CREE LED Headlamps among other things. A clip is provided to adjust the lamp's size. All lamps come with a clip for securing it to the wall. Prior to this, my team used Velcro straps or zip ties to secure the bag. There will be no The pros are It is comfortable. The weight of the article is light. The user interface is easy to understand. Headlamps are securely held in place with this holder. The cons are that I can think of. When working in hot conditions, make sure you install the ridge vent. As a whole In the spirit of full transparency, the price of the hardhat was steep, but the improvements from a standard hardhat outweighed the cost. Now that 100% of employees have access to the internet Their PPE always wears their chin strap since it is lightweight and has a chin strap.

Keeping you safe with helmet perfection
5/5

The safety helmet that is being offered is of the highest quality. There are no glaring problems with the design or production. It can be customized for a wide variety of tasks and is highly adjustable. My head fits perfectly in this hat and I feel comfortable wearing it for hours on end. I would recommend you highly.

My only complaint is that the sweat band built into the helmet is not that great
4/5

I love everything about the helmet, except the sweat band. As a result, the sweat constantly drips down your face because it doesn't absorb it. The heat from the sun is enough to get my head heating up, so I don't want anything else on my head blocking it.

Safety is paramount
5/5

In this past year, I've started to work as a stagehand. The product is safe to use, and that is why I purchased it. Whether its adjustable or comfortable, it's right for you. The straps on this helmet were important to me, since I wanted an OSHA-approved helmet. As well as being able to attach a light under the stage, I like that you have two sides. Considering the price, I believe it is worth it.

A great fit for air ops during a search and rescue mission
5/5

For the price, this helmet represents a good value. My purchase was made for helicopter operations during Search and Rescue missions, and it fits perfectly. Additionally, it is easily equipped with a visor option, so no extra goggles need to be carried.

Having you in my life saved During the arrival on May 7, I fell off a ladder about 15 to 20 feet and hit my head while wearing it

In other words, this was a lifesaver for me.

I like how lightweight it is and how comfortable it feels
5/5

A wheel style of fitting makes it easy to install. The purpose of purchasing this product was to use it in trees. I like how lightweight it is and how comfortable it feels. Easy fitting using the wheel adjuster makes going from using a helmet liner to bare head a matter of seconds. In addition to the 3M Peltor x-ray, I fitted the helmet with a sterile peristaltic pump This pair of earmuffs belongs to the series. These accessories are a little heavy, but they work perfectly with the An ordinary flat blade screwdriver is what you need to remove them. By using the black clips, mounting and removing the lamp is quick and convenient. recently tested two different brands of headlamps, both of which work equally It is a helmet that I would recommend to anyone needing this type of safety. It might be better to go with the ventilated version if you do not have to worry about objects getting into the helmet from the top.
