Wheel Ratchet Helmets
Wheel Ratchet Hard Hats For Easy Adjustment
Ensuring your helmet fits properly is as important as choosing to wear a safety helmet in the first place. An improperly adjusted helmet will not offer the proper head protection as it may react unpredictably to an impact; it could even fall off entirely.
All our helmets come fitted with an adjustable rear strap; this allows you to fit the helmet properly to your head, ensuring that your helmet is securely anchored under the bump on the back of your head (occipital ridge).
Helmets in this category come specifically with a wheel ratchet at the back. Wheel ratchet helmets have a finer degree of granularity in their adjustment, allowing you to adjust the back strap of your helmet so it is snug but not too tight.
Key Benefits Of A Hard Hat With Wheel Ratchet
A Precise Fit
Much finer adjustment levels ensure that your helmet stays put during day-to-day activities on site whilst not becoming a burden or impacting comfort.
Fast And Easy
You can quickly adjust a wheel ratchet with a single swift movement of your hand. This allows you to loosen or tighten the helmet quickly without effort, making taking the helmet on and off during the day effortless.
Adjusted using one hand, you can tweak the rear strap fit to get the best comfort and security. The faster and easier you can change your helmet fitment, the more likely you are to wear it adjusted correctly.
Other Adjustment Types On Our Range Of Safety Helmets
These are a great cost-saving alternative to wheel ratchets. They still offer sufficient adjustment for most people but do not quite have the same granularity as a hard hat with an adjustable knob.
Many of our helmets allow you to adjust the harness height in relation to the outer shell. Again, this can have comfort benefits and give better head protection by maintaining the correct gap between the top of the head and the helmet's outer shell.
Chin Strap Adjustment
Where fitted many of our chin straps allow you to adjust their fit, ensuring that they are not too tight and that the helmet stays in place during a slip, trip, or fall.
