The PROTOS protective helmet from Pfanner is a perfect product in many respects, which perfectly protects the head in the forest, when working with wood or in tree care and convinces with its outstanding wearing comfort and integral system. The safety helmets have vertical and horizontal impact protection, a perfect ventilation system and can be upgraded to any requirement with various optional items - such as visor, chin strap, neck protection, hearing protection - model: Protos Integral Arborist
Eight times more security
Protos protective helmets offer the largest field of vision compared to all helmets currently tested on the market. The patented neck protection shell from PROTOS protects the back of the head in the event of a fall or hit and prevents the risk of a fracture at the base of the skull. The large area of the helmet offers up to 35% more visible field in the stylish two-tone combination. The increased visibility offers the worker additional protection in difficult visibility conditions. The sophisticated damping construction inside the helmet absorbs impacts and does not transfer them to the head and spine. Responsible for this is the 3-point suspension and the optional shock absorber, which is already integrated as standard in the Protos Integral Arborist. The integrated hearing protection, which is always on the head in the active and passive state, offers additional impact protection at the level of the ears, temples and parts of the jaw. The ingenious and adjustable ventilation system offers not only perfect ventilation but also impact protection.
Eight times more comfort
The design of the integral hearing protection not only makes it easy to wear, it also protects against snagging on branches or undergrowth. The contact pressure can be adjusted and thus depends on the needs of the wearer. The deep and adjustable neck shell allows easy and perfect fixation without having to use a chin strap. The PROTOS forestry helmet can therefore also be opened or closed with one hand and always fits perfectly. The active ventilation system with its ventilation channels on the top ensures a balanced air flow ratio inside. The sliders on the helmet allow you to react optimally to any weather situation. The visor or goggles are prevented from fogging up and sweat is optimally wicked away. A special guide for the chin strap ensures that it does not slip under the hearing protection and has a negative effect on wearing comfort and noise insulation. As in the Pfanner jackets, pants and shoes, the PROTOS forestry helmet uses Klima-Air technology. This offers excellent sweat transport thanks to its wide padding. All PROTOS functions can be operated with two fingers. Such as the hearing protection capsules, which can be guided into the integrated garage between the head and the helmet.
The Austrian manufacturer sets a clear standard here without having to discuss the ecological footprint much and at length. Each component must come from the region and travel as short a route as possible. PROTOS safety helmets are developed and produced in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The final assembly takes place in Pfanner's own factory in Hohenems by our own qualified staff. This not only ensures sustainability but also the extremely high safety standards.
The integral system
With this ingenious idea, the helmet can not only be upgraded according to your own taste and requirements. After the service life of five years, all parts of the helmet can be transferred to a new shell and you save a lot of money. In addition to a chin strap, various visors and a neck protector, wearing parts such as the headband, the padding of the hearing protection or the insulating insert can also be replaced with PROTOS. The shock absorber can also be retrofitted as an option, but this must be inserted by a specialist company. With GenXtreme, of course, you have the right partner at your side!
