The latest high performance, side impact industrial safety helmet from JSP meets the new European Standard EN14052, a higher level standard for head protection than the existing EN397. Called the Mk8 Evolution TM or EVO
Under EN14052 the helmet is required to protect against forces of over 100 joules in the crown impact area, compared to 49 joules required under EN397, as well as protecting against a second impact to 49 joules on the same helmet initially tested.
In addition though, EN14052 requires protection from side impacts of 50 joules.
