The STIHL FUNCTION BASIC Helmet set is a carefully designed protective gear for those working in environments that demand high safety standards, such as forestry or gardening. The helmet is lightweight, which makes it comfortable for extended wear, and it features a large nylon visor for optimal facial protection.
One of the distinguishing features of this helmet is the elastic visor seals that prevent dirt from getting into the helmet. This ensures that your visibility remains unobstructed, thus enhancing safety while working.
For auditory protection, the helmet is equipped with low profile ear muffs that offer sound protection, shielding your ears from potentially harmful noise levels. The comfort of the helmet is further enhanced by the vents in the upper part of the helmet chamber that provide ventilation, reducing heat and increasing comfort during use.
Additionally, the helmet features a screen that provides glare protection, reducing eye strain and improving visibility in bright conditions. The helmet is also equipped with a pin-lock closure for easy adjustment of the headband, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit for all head sizes.
As for safety standards, the helmet complies with EN 352 (hearing protection), EN 397 (industrial safety helmets), and EN 1731 (eye and face protection), providing a comprehensive safety solution for various working environments.
The helmet’s nylon mesh face mask is flexible and durable, reducing the risk of breakage. However, it’s important to note that the additional use of safety glasses is highly recommended for further eye protection.
The advantages of the helmet’s standard ventilation are demonstrated in thermographic testing. The temperature dropped by two to three degrees, and the humidity increased by 50%, making the helmet more comfortable to wear for extended periods.
