Linesman Safety Helmets

Linesman Hard Hats - Safety Helmets For Overhead Power Work

Linesman spend most of their time working on high voltage cables at height, repairing critical power infrastructure after storms or installing new cables where needed. With the dangers of working both at height and with high power lines, proper PPE is essential.

Our range of linesman helmets comes with several key features that make them suitable for use when working with the dangers linespersons face daily. These features include;

  • A chin strap prevents the helmet from falling off in an accident or fall.
  • Electrical Insulation, these helmets are insulated to meet EN 50365 Class 0 10KV (non-vented versions only).
  • A low profile peak for improved upward vision is essential when climbing or looking up to a colleague.
  • Your helmet should have the ability to withstand impacts from above in line with EN 397.
