Bullard, the 123-year-old company known for its invention of the hard hat, introduced today its new UST-LW fire helmet.
The UST-LW helmet features a fiberglass composite material which reduces helmet weight by up to 10oz, depending on specific configuration. This reduction in weight has been achieved while aiming to maintaining the high standards of safety, toughness, and protection on which Bullard customers rely.
In addition to its reduced weight, Bullard’s UST-LW fire helmet includes a cotton ratchet cover, which has been developed with both durability and cleanability in mind. A traditional leather ratchet is also available, and the helmet is being offered in a range of matte colours.
All Bullard UST/USTM Series fire helmets are resistant to chemical attack, remain stable at extreme temperatures, and feature a dual-purpose CFC-free urethane foam impact liner which provides heat insulation and superior impact and penetration protection.
Bullard UST/USTM fire helmets are equipped with the U-Fit system, offering 36 custom comfort settings, and meet and exceed the NFPA 1971, Standard on Protective Ensemble for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Firefighting.
