Full Brim Hard Hats
Full Brim Hard Hats - Safety Helmets With A 360° Brim
A full brim hard hat makes excellent sense when working in exposed locations. Instead of having a peak just at the front of the helmet like many safety helmets, the peak on full brim safety helmets extends to surround the entire helmet.
A 360° brim is good for several reasons; it offers improved protection from the sun. A wide profile full brim offers 360° protection for the ears and neck from the sun's rays, which is something that a standard hard hat does not provide. The wider brim design can also help throw off rainwater, debris and other fluids, making them popular in some oil and gas extraction roles.
This style of helmet is trendy in North America and other hot climates where shielding from the sun's glare is more of an issue. However, it still has its place in the UK, where hotter summers are becoming ever more prevalent.
Full Brim Hard Hat UK Features
Like all of our helmets, our full brim helmets are packed with valuable features that make them an essential piece of head protection that is a pleasure to wear daily. Important: please check the individual product page to ensure the specific model of the helmet has the features you require.
The internal harness on these helmets is the same as on standard helmets. The harness ensures that the top of your head maintains sufficient space from the hard hat shell.
Adjustable Rear Strap
All rear straps are adjustable to allow the helmet to properly and snugly fit the head without fear of it coming loose during day-to-day work.
Many of our full brim helmets have reflective kits available to ensure that you and your staff can be seen in low light conditions.
Ear Defender Compatibility
Unique “full brim” compatible ear defenders are available for many of our 360° brim helmets.
Integrated Eyewear Option
Many of these helmets can be used with integrated eye protection, reducing the amount of gear you need to remember when heading to a work site.
Chin Strap Compatibility
We have compatible options if you need a chin strap, including two- and four-point variants.
