As a labor protection product, safety helmet can effectively prevent objects and other dangerous goods from falling off head. It is a necessity in oil drilling, construction and other industries. When buying, we must choose products that are reliable in quality and comfortable to wear. So how to choose exactly? Mainly pay attention to these 6 points:
1. Check if it meets safety helmet standard
When buying a helmet, pay attention to whether product meets standard of helmet. The helmet manufacturing standard clearly requires size, weight, impact absorption characteristics, penetration resistance, low temperature resistance, marking, etc. of product. . Only those produced in accordance with standards are qualified safety helmets.
2. Check out certificate and test report
In addition to verifying that helmet meets manufacturing standards, you should also check that product has a certificate of conformity and an inspection report. As a rule, products produced by conventional manufacturers have these inspection certificates.
3. Look at material
Helmets made of different materials have different characteristics and different applications. For example, high-density polyethylene helmets are resistant to high and low temperatures, have good electrical insulation and corrosion resistance, and are suitable for metallurgical, chemical, mining, electric power, construction, machinery and other industries.
ABS helmets have good rigidity and impact resistance, so they are used in industries with high impact strength, such as mining and machinery. FRP helmets have low thermal conductivity and good resistance to high and low temperatures, so they are mainly used in high temperature metallurgical work places.
4. Look at function
The functional types of safety helmets can be divided into general protection type, impact resistance type, penetration resistance type, low temperature resistance type, combustion resistance type, electrical insulation type, anti-static type, etc. When purchasing, choose according to characteristics of type of purchase works.
5. Look at size
Helmets are usually divided into three types: large, medium and small. The large size is 61-64 cm, medium size is 57-60 cm, and small size is 51-56 cm.
6. Look at style
V-shaped helmet with rounded edges and wide brim protects against rain and light and is suitable for outdoor work. The top of Y-shaped safety helmet has a wider shock absorbing pad, which can play a good shock absorbing role and is suitable for use in construction sites or mining. The round helmet is comfortable and highly impact resistant, suitable for wearing in various workplaces.
