High performance lightweight bump cap
27 March 2019
The HardCap AeroLite® from JSP is the lightest, best performing, full shell Bump Cap on the market weighing less than 135g without compromising on performance.
It is designed to be worn in work environments where there is a risk of impact to the front, top and also scrapes to the side of the head from stationary objects.
The HardCap AeroLite® is extremely lightweight and comfortable, which is really important to individuals who need to wear bump cap protection for long periods of time in today’s busy demanding environments. The sleek textile cover has large open weaved panels to facilitate the transfer of cool air to the head reducing heat build-up and discomfort making it one of the coolest caps on the market.
Underneath the textile cover is a tough HDPE shell and a lightweight EPP impact lineroffering class leading impact performance. The HardCap AeroLite® looks stylish and feels good to wear with the added padding for extra comfort and optimum fit. The padding is replaceable and the comfort pad and sweatband are moisture wicking to move sweat away from the skin.
The Polygiene® treated sweatband and foam-cushion comfort pads guard against the growth of bacteria, fungus and mildew reducing skin irritations and odours and therefore requiring less washing. The Polygiene® treatment is permanent and effective for the lifetime of the product. Wear more and wash less® – Polygiene® treated garments can be used more times before washing and can be washed at lower temperatures which means that you save energy, water, time and money.
Tested to BS EN 812, the HardCap AeroLite® consistently exceeded its requirements, recording an average transmitted force of just 5kN – well below the maximum 15kN allowed by the standard. It was also successfully tested at temperature extremes of -40°C and +50°C, making it the best-performing full-shell bump cap on the market.
The HardCap AeroLite® is adjustable to fit head sizes from 53cm to 63cm and available in black or blue, with either a 50mm or 25mm peak. The longer peak provides more shade in outdoor or brightly-lit environments, while the shorter version allows for better vision when looking upward. The large reflective areas on the side panel of the textile cover and the reflective piping around the peak provide extra visibility in low-light conditions. This textile cover is removable and machine washable.
