View Part Numbers

Working at height or in confined spaces is challenging. To ensure your workforce wears their safety helmets and that they stay comfortably on the head through the day MSA developed the V-Gard 520 helmet. This modern hard hat is designed without peak so that unrestricted upward vision is guaranteed. New suspensions and optional chinstraps give stable retention on the head even when leaning.
