High-performance electrical protection

14 December 2022

THE EVOGUARD C5MAX Helmet System combines an EVO 5 Olympus safety helmet with the EVOGuard C5MAX visor to deliver a complete electrical protection solution.

The helmet offers 1000V electrical insulation, as well as shock absorption and penetration resistance for industrial environments. The visor provides A-rated impact resistance with excellent coverage and panoramic vision. Meeting GS-ET-29, the system offers protection against electric arc risks when worn as part of a protective arc flash ensemble.

EVOGuard® C5MAX offers comprehensive coverage without limiting movement. The innovative all-in-one moulded carrier and visor design with clear integral chinguard enhances facial coverage while maintaining optimum vision. Self-lubricating hinges hold the visor securely in position for balanced weight distribution.

The optical class 1 visor provides UV filtering, with K&N anti-scratch anti-mist properties. A-rated impact resistance protects against high-energy projectiles, with extreme temperature testing at - 5°C to +55°C. EVOGuard® C5MAX meets the requirements of GS-ET-29, providing eye and face protection against a risk of fault arc: GS ET-29 Class 1, 4kA (155KJ/m2 or 3.7 cal/cm2).

The helmet passes all relevant international standards, including EN 397, ANSI/ISEA Z89.1, CSA Z94.1 and AS/NZS 1801. As an ANSI Class E product, EVO®5 is tested to withstand 20,000V, in addition to 1000V for EN 50365 and 440V EN 397 option. The system features an EVO® Linesman 4-point chinstrap, tested and certified to EN 397 to release automatically at forces between 150N and 250N.

EVOGuard® C5MAX maximises compatibility with prescription eyewear and other JSP PPE for combined high-performance protection.
