3M™ SecureFit™ Safety Helmet X5000 - Dual Standard EN12492 and EN397
Version VE = Vented Non-Reflective
The new 3M™ SecureFit™ Safety Helmet for comfort and protection of those who work at and around height.
The X5000 Series was Inspired by modern climbing helmets; the brimless design gives a clear upward view so you can stay aware of your surroundings and avoid risks. It’s ideal for a variety of situations, including working at heights or for industrial jobs that involve heavy machinery or other hazards.
The X5000 Series is designed and certified to meet both EN12492 and EN397 standards and, with the unique 4-point chin strap selector system, you can switch between either depending on the safety requirements of your workplace. The chin strap is fitted with a standard buckle.
With six different settings you can adjust the height of the suspension in the front and the rear to fit a variety of head shapes. With the easy-to-adjust, 6-point ratchet suspension system you can smoothly tighten the headband as needed. It has the exclusive, patented 3M™ Pressure Diffusion Technology which not only provides a secure fit but, by reducing up to 20% of forehead pressure compared to conventional 3M helmet suspensions improving user comfort.
The helmet features a proprietary 3M™ UVicator™ Sensor that changes from red to white when exposed to damaging levels of ultraviolet (UV) light. As UV rays can cause helmet shells to become brittle and compromise their protection level, the sensor changing colour indicates that it’s time to replace the helmet.
Accessory slots and clips are designed to be compatible with a variety of 3M face shields, earmuffs and other accessories.
The X5000 Series has been configured, tested, and approved for use in combination with a series of 3M Products.
