VOSS Helmets for Extreme Areas of Application

Industrial safety helmets for hot zones and high grade or unidentified demands

Industrial safety helmets of duroplastic and thermoplastic helmets with duroplastic properties developed and designed for hot zones and unidentified demands. Duroplastic helmets are shaped by a moulding cycle of pressure and heat. Below is an overview of materials used by VOSS-HELME, and their properties:
