Firefighter helmets are designed to provide protection from falling objects, flames, electric wires, and exposure to extreme heat. Whether you’re putting out a fire or walking into a hazardous environment, shop LineGear helmets to protect you and your team.
How Firefighter Helmets Are Built
Helmet shells are typically made from thermoplastic or thermoset resin to offer excellent resistance to penetration and impact. Wildland firefighting helmets can also be equipped with an adjustable headband, thermal impact cap, suspension straps, a chinstrap, ear cover, face shield, and a clip and D-ring hanger. The helmet’s energy absorption system includes a headband, pins, and sockets to keep the straps fitted properly. The retention system is designed to keep the helmet in place using webbing, a nape device, and a chin strap. Adjustments to the helmet’s fit can be made with buckles, hook and loop closing systems, and slide mechanisms.
