New safety helmet absorbs impacts with Crashbox

A safety helmet boasting innovative design features is now available in the UK and Ireland via Personal Protective Equipment specialist Alpha Solway.

The Ranger helmet provides enhanced impact protection and comfort for workers using the unique Crashbox protection system, created by renowned head protection manufacturer ENHA.

Crashbox is an integrated, double-walled impact absorption system located on the crown of the helmet.

It is designed to absorb impact energy, instead of the wearer, in the event of an impact from above.

It achieves this through specially designed cylindrical rods that drive into corresponding cylinders in a rotating motion when an impact occurs. This absorbs the energy to minimise the force on the wearer’s head.

Other user benefits include a padded ratchet adjustment system, which is quick and easy to use with one hand, even when wearing safety gloves.

Joining Ranger is the specialist E-RANGER safety helmet.

Designed specifically for electrical applications, E-RANGER not only incorporates the Crashbox impact absorption system, but also reduces the risk of exposure from high voltage conductors (up to 1000V AC or 1500V DC).

It also comes with a range of optional metal-free accessories and is resistant to molten metal.

Steven Binnie, Sales Director for Alpha Solway said: “The Ranger helmet is an absolute game changer when it comes to head protection and we are delighted to launch it here in the UK and Ireland.

“Best in class in terms of performance and convenience in use, the Crashbox system is a true revolution. Based on crumple zone technology used in the automotive industry, it has transformed head protection programmes.”
