Husqvarna’s Technical Personal Protective Equipment range includes a variety of items designed to offer effective protection, along with comfort and convenience, for hardworking forestry professionals. This Technical Forest Helmet, for example, is tough enough to help keep you safe during even the most heavy duty cutting work, while a lightweight, ergonomic design means that you can get the job done in complete comfort.
Pleasingly sturdy in its construction, the Technical Forest Helmet also comes complete with fully adjustable ear protectors and a hi-tech visor. The ear protectors work to reduce the effect of exposure to loud noise while using a powerful chainsaw for prolonged periods, and can be quickly and easily adjusted as required (with a handy ‘stand by’ position allowing you to tuck them neatly away while not in use). The visor, meanwhile, has been re-designed for better protection and increased visibility, and can be conveniently folded up and out of the way while not in use. This adaptability extends to the helmet itself, with a six-point harness and a clever ratchet mechanism allowing you to quickly adjust the size of the helmet with one hand for superb convenience and a perfect fit, while a mesh ventilation system offers added comfort when working in warm weather.
Reflective sections across the helmet are also included to ensure great visibility in low light conditions, thus increasing safety when working early or late during the winter months. Another interesting little feature is the UV indicator, which reflects the degree of UV damage experienced over time and shows the current condition of the helmet to let you know when it may need replacing. This helps to ensure that you are never caught off guard, and thus further works toward keeping you safe and sound while you work.
