Tree Climber's Helmets

One of the most important safety items for tree climbing is the climber's helmet. Anyone working or climbing at heights must wear a climbing helmet- not a hard hat. Hard hats are designed to protect from objects falling from above only, and climbers face potential injury from the sides as well, making a climbing helmet designed to protect from side and back impact necessary. Today's climbing helmets are also designed to stay put in case of a fall, with adjustable suspension and chin straps. Without these, a hard hat is nearly useless in the tree if it falls off during an incident. Besides the obvious safety benefits of a helmet over a hard hat, they will also be much more comfortable and most can mount face or eye shields and hearing protection for added safety and convenience.

Pfanner put 12 years of research and product development into the Protos helmet for a unique helmet that combines eye, ear, and impact protection.

The face shield and ear muffs are integrated into the helmet, and both can be slid up and back when not in use, and removed for repair or replacement. The suspension is designed to be adjusted and then clamped with a wide lever at the back for a truly secure fit. The helmet itself is designed to absorb and deflect forces before they are transfer to the wearer.

The Protos is an all-in-one solution for arborist's safety headgear. Weighs about 2 lb with all components. Made in Austria.

This item is not compatible with the Sena Tufftalk.
