Tectra™ Safety Helmet
Product of the year award from OH&S!
Elvex proudly introduces a stunning new safety cap design. Safety caps have not changed much in 50 years -- until now.
A quick summary of design elements and features:
Pictures above show the Tectra safety helmet equipped with Elvex cap mount earmuffs (HM-2529-left picture and HM-6029-right picture) Visor Bracket (VB-30) and steel mesh visor (SV-70) and aspherical Lexan visor (FS-12L).
Product of the Year
The most important aspect of a safety helmet suspension is that it holds the helmet securely on the head. The head hugging suspensions of the Tectra helmet have a low center of gravity than what is offered on other safety helmets. This feature results in a very secure feeling of a helmet that stays on the head. Four different suspensions are offered: four and six point ratchet suspensions and four and six point pin-lock suspensions. All suspensions have three height adjustments.
6 and 4 point ratchet suspensions
6 and 4 point pin-lock suspensions
Vented and non vented
The Tectra helmet is available in vented and non vented versions. The vented version has eight ventilation holes at the crown of the helmet. On the non vented version the ventilation holes are permanently closed, and look like cosmetic decorations. Ventilated helmets cannot meet Class E (electrical) requirement of ANSI Z89.1-2009.
Types and Classes
Tectra is a Type I helmet, meaning that it is designed to provide protection from impacts to the top of the head. There are three classes of helmets: Class E (electrical) is rated 20,000 Volts, Class G (general) is tested to 2,200 Volts, and Class C (conductive) are not intended to provide protection against electrical hazards.
The Tectra helmet complies with ANSI Z89.1-2009 requirements for a Type I helmet. The non vented version complies with Class E, G and C, and the vented version complies with Class C. Certification to CE EN 397 is pending.
Designed for accessories
The Tectra helmet is designed to work with accessories and comes with standard 30 mm slots. It works with Elvex hearing protection and face protection, as well as with many competitive hearing protectors. Use any of our four cap mount muff models, with suffix 29 or 30, such as HM-6029 or HM-6030. Use visor bracket model VB-30, in combination with any of 20 different face shields and wire mesh visors.
