Developed in partnership with oil and gas industry leaders in some of the toughest environments on the planet, the revolutionary North Force hard hat features an innovative shell design for 24% more back-of-head coverage than standard Type I hard hats, protecting workers from serious head injuries due to slips on surfaces slick with ice and snow.
Fibre-Metal Products Company was founded over a century ago, out of the desire to provide high-production workers with proper personal protective equipment. The first product invented by the company’s founder was the protective welding helmet, a harbinger of the importance the company would continue to place on protective headgear. Today, as part of Honeywell Safety Products, Fibre-Metal continues to offers comprehensive line of protective caps and related equipment, designed to the highest standards, with the ultimate safety of each worker in mind.
Protecting workers from head injuries is “job one” on any production site and the most effective means of doing so is to equip workers with hard hats (or safety helmets) that meet applicable industry standards (ANSI z89) for worker safety and that provide maximum comfort, reliability, and functionality. Fibre-Metal’s hard hats and protective caps, which can be combined with welding helmets, faceshields, and welding goggles, keep workers around the globe safe on every type of work site and are suitable to every application and process .
The advanced technology of the SuperEight™ Impact Energy Control System in Fibre-Metal hats offers unparalleled protection, by ensuring the force of any impact is dispersed into smaller increments and diffused over eight load bearing points – reducing risk of injury.
In addition, Fibre-Metal offers three hard hat suspensions to provide maximum stability and adjustability.
