3M™ H-800V Series Full Brim Vented Hard Hat with Ratchet System is comfortable, tough and lightweight protective headgear that helps protect the head from small falling objects and fixed objects that may be bumped into. Vents built into the hard hat release heat buildup and allow air circulation to enhance comfort of the worker. The cooling effect of air circulation helps reduce perspiration in hot and humid working environments. The 4-point suspension system has unique features that allow for a customized height and fit that best suits the individual needs of the wearer. An optional 6-point suspension strap can be added for additional comfort and fit. The comfortable suspension sits lower on the head to reduce pressure points and increase security, especially when looking up and bending down. A smooth, easy-turning ratchet suspension allows for simple adjustments. A 3-level height adjustment allows workers to customize the fit. The perforated, absorbent brow pad provides enhanced comfort
Besides head protection, full brim hard hats offer extra shielding from the sun, splashes, rain, sleet, and snow for enhanced comfort. Full brim hard hats are often preferred in hot and sunny locations because of the extra shading they provide. A hardhat is commonly worn in these industries: heavy and light industrial, construction, oil and gas, road work, utilities, forestry, and mining.
This vented hard hat meets requirements of ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 Type 1, Class C. The high visibility orange and high visibility yellow colored hard hats meet ANSI Z89.1-2009 High Visibility Performance requirements.
The rigid shell of the 3M™ Hard Hat H-800 Series helps reduce chances of injury by deflecting small falling objects from striking the head of the person who wears this protective headgear. The hard hat also helps protect from injuries due to bumping into stationary objects such as pipes, rods, shafts, construction timbers, branches, or exposed electrical conductors. The suspension system inside the hard hat helps absorb the effects of the impact to dissipate the force. Even small objects can cause significant injury due to the force built up from the momentum of falling. Something as small as a washer or coin can strike with the force of several pounds if it falls far enough. 3M hard hats reduce the impact if a strike occurs.
