This safety helmet for construction workers features an injection molded fiberglass compound shell. Also known as a hard hat, this head protection gear is certified type 1 and class G in compliance with the CSA Z94.1-15 standard, which means it is legal to work with this piece of equipment in Canada since it offers a physical protection of the top of the head as well as an electrical protection from a 2000 volts nominal current. This particular model of hard hat offers the advantage to be worn the regular way, that is, with the wave peek up front, but also in reverse donning. The latter mode allows one to see overhead if need be; it also allows one to wear a faceshield, let’s say, for welding. The SuperEight™ suspension keeps the helmet in a comfortable position while dampening impacts. Its ratchet system allows a single-handed quick and easy adjustment. Roughneck™ hard hats also feature a foam sweat headband included on the suspension. This safety gear also meets ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014 type 1, class G requirements.
Fibre-Metal® fiberglass compound shells are resistant to impacts, to cracks, and high temperatures up to 260 °C (500 °F). They are thus ideal for welders as well as workers in steel works, foundries, ironworks, boiler works, and chemical processing plants.
The hard hat shell is made of an injection molded fiberglass compound, a material widely used industrially for its physical strength. If a hard hat must withstand contact with chemical products, it is recommended to perform a contact test with the specific chemicals involved, in order to ensure the materials of the hard hat will not be compromised. Fiberglass can withstand temperatures as high as 260 °C (500 °F).
The suspension (or headband or head helmet) is made of nylon, a strong a rigid polyamide quite resilient to mechanical forces. It also offers good resistance to fatigue strength, good gliding properties, and quite a resistance to wear and tear.
This hard hat is certified type 1 which means it offers a protection from impacts occurring on the top of the head. It is also certified class G which means it offers electrical protection. This helmet to many lab tests, one of which measures the dielectric rigidity (electric conductance or resistance). In short, the lower the leakage current is, the better is the dielectric rigidity of the helmet. What’s so special about Class G helmets is that they have been designed to withstand and protect one from high voltage which may reach 2000 volts at 60 Hertz.
Class G Helmets:
Class G helmets successfully underwent a specific lab test measuring their dielectric rigidity with an applied voltage of 2000 Volts at 60 Hertz. It is not often that these helmets are manufactured, indeed companies tend to manufacture Class E hard hats which are significantly superior since they can resist high voltage as high as 20,000 volts at 60 Hertz.
Components such as faceshields and welding helmet can be added to the hard hat. Only the accessories designed to go with Fibre-Metal® hard hat for extreme temperatures are compatible. Other models will most likely not be compatible since Fibre-Metal® helmets do not feature the standard slits on the sides. Roughneck™ hard hats featuring no Quick-Lok™ mounting blocks require the Speedy-Loop™ mounting cap to wear a faceshield of a welding helmet on the hard hat. As for the earmuffs for protection against noise, only one model fits on this line of helmets: low profile earmuffs (model 2030).
More choices are available when it comes to sweat headbands, suspensions, and cold weather protection liners.
Retro-reflective stripes are also available if a worker wishes to have some at the designated location of the lower part of the helmet; note, however, that the strips must be approved for this use by the manufacturer to be legal. One may choose to add decals or stickers, but they are not recommended since they prevent a good inspection of your PPEs.
The CSA Z94.1-15 standard states that one shall inspect its hard hat and clean it daily. It is recommended to clean the shell and the suspension with lukewarm water and a mild soap such as dish soap.
According to the CSA, the hat as it is shall be inspected every day by the worker himself. He shall be looking for any traces of cracking, splitting or discoloration. This is why a helmet should never have stickers on it as it is too often. Basically, the color of the hat shall remain uniformly distributed. Note that any cleaning solution to aggressive when in contact with the helmet can and will damage it. One should never try to reuse a hard hat that withstood a solid impact. The manufacturer suggests that the shell has a service life of no more than 5 years.
The suspension should also be inspected and clean daily to remove sebum, hair, perspiration, etc. The manufacturer recommends the replacement of the suspension every year. To conclude, one should never use his helmet as a bucket or a bag to handle tools or just stuff around.
