14052 reasons to specify EVO8

26 October 2010

JSP has launched the first high performance, side impact industrial safety helmet to meet the new European Standard EN14052, a higher level standard for head protection than the existing EN397. Called the Mk8 Evolution TM or "EVO8", it is the first helmet to offer serious protection from side impacts as well as severe crown impacts.

Under EN14052 the helmet is required to protect against forces of over 100 joules in the crown impact area compared to 49 joules required under EN397 as well as protecting against a second impact to 49 joules on the same helmet initially tested. In addition though, EN14052 requires protection from side impacts of 50 joules, which is to the same level required under the EN397 crown impact test itself!

The EVO8 is designed for the highest risk environments such as mining and tunnelling, demolition, construction, refinery, marine and offshore working and any situation where there is a danger from side impacts. Its excellent build quality complements the high standard of design and materials which go into the helmet, including features such as a high density liner and a comfortable new harness design which create unparalleled wearer comfort and acceptability.

The high performance industrial helmet protects against impacts which may otherwise result in brain injury, skull fractures and neck injury. Emergency services use EN14052 helmets including the Ambulance Service that specify an EN14052 helmet for each member of its road ambulance crews under EN1789:2007.

EVO8 has a fine pedigree. The British manufacturer has been producing safety equipment in the UK for more than 40 years. It offers a wide range of helmets and head protection as well as accessories such as visors and hearing protection for every kind of industry and application.
