When it comes to protective workwear on-site and on the job, few items of clothing command the respect and importance of protective headgear.
With the ability to save your life quite literally built-in to every item, protective headwear is arguably the single most vital piece of kit for many workers tasked with working in hazardous environments.
For those that work in a setting where falling objects are a common hazard, no such argument is necessary – protective headgear is an absolute must.
Luckily, here at Life-Gear.com, we’ve got plenty of safety options available to ensure your head remains safe and sound, regardless of the task at hand.

Edelrid Climbing Helmets
Edelrid is a brand that has been strongly associated with the mountaineering game since the 1950s. As such, suffice to say they know a thing or two about climbing headgear.
Featuring a lightweight and durable design, this model comes with a unique “wing fit” system that provides maximum overhead comfort, as well as safety.
With its impact-resistant ABS outer shell, the Zodiac also boasts an expanded polystyrene foam inner shell for enhanced shock absorption.
Complete with adjustable chin strap, head torch clips and spare padding, this product also features large vents to maintain a consistent supply of air for comfort.
Available in green, orange and white.
Also fitted with the “wing-fit” system for precise helmet adjustment, the Ultra-Lite offers many of the perks of the Zodiac, such as the head torch clips, robust ABS hardshell and chin strap.
However, unlike the Zodiac model, the Ultra-Lite also offers protection against molten metal splatter and side attachments for ear protectors and a visor, if required.
Available in red, yellow, white and black, this stellar head protection solution is also compliant to EN 397.
Petzl Climbing Helmets
Much like Edelrid, Petzl is a brand that has long established itself as a go-to name in both the climbing game and working at height equipment. With a history that dates back to the ‘70s, the guys and girls at Petzl know their stuff, as seen in these items below:
Specifically designed for those that work at height, the Vertex Best has a number of features tailor-made for the task at hand.
Featuring a CentreFit adjustment system for headband stability and central positioning, visor/ear defender attachment points and strong chinstrap, it also boasts a six-point textile suspension to comfortably fit the shape of your head.
Meanwhile, from a protection perspective, it also offers effective shock-absorption through reactive deformation of the outer shell. The Vertex Best has a lifespan of 10 years from manufacture date and is available in six different colours.
The Vertex Vent offers all the features of the Vertex Best with the notable difference of featured vent holes on the outer casing.
Best of all, these vent holes come complete with sliding shutters for adjustable comfort, allow the user to alter the ventilation while wearing the helmet to suit their preference.
