The helmet consists of a shell and a suspension system called a harness. The shell provides the impact protection by deflecting,
whilst the harness absorbs the shock and load. The transmission of force is dissipated through the shell, harness by stretching
and directs it down through the body to the ground. The six point harness provides the cushioning, spreading the load evenly over the protected area.
The polyethylene harness maximises the surface area contact with the wearer’s head and enhances stability/ security of the safety helmet.
This economical harness system is readily washable, easily dried and reinserted back into the helmet.
The area between the shell and harness is the shock absorption zone and should not be treated as a storage location.
