United Tool and Fastener carries Milwaukee’s new safety helmets, which are available in front brim and no brim styles, in vented (Class C) and unvented (Class E) options and are available in seven colors.
“With more than half of fatal work-related traumatic injuries resulting in falls, workers are becoming more aware of the dangers of slips, trips, and falls. For that reason, there is a growing trend in helmet adoption by general contractors and sub-contractors because helmets offer side protection whereas traditional hard hats only include the top of head protection,” said Zach Richman, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool.
“Our new safety helmets... provide a high level of both safety and comfort.”
The Milwaukee safety helmets are designed to give users better protection by offering protection from both top and side impacts. The helmets are BOLT™ compatible with four BOLT™ accessory slots and two universal accessory slots, enabling users to attach additional personal protective equipment and accessories. Additionally, the helmets include a BOLT™ headlamp mount and a BOLT™ marker clip to attach and access pens, pencils, and markers.
Each Milwaukee safety helmet comprises a padded suspension that includes an adjustable swinging ratchet for quick adjustment and comfort. Furthermore, the new helmet is designed with an anti-microbial sweatband and helmet liner to prevent odor and bacteria and can be removed to be machine washed.
The safety helmets are ANSI type 2 and meet energy absorption capacity clauses 184.108.40.206 (front), 220.127.116.11 (side), and 18.104.22.168 (rear), and retention system clauses 4.2.3 (strength) and 4.2.4 (effectiveness) of EN12492:2012.
