Anyone who has worked in construction, mining and other such high-risk work places will bear witness to the fact that hard hats are lifesavers. Injuries to the head can be potentially disastrous and sometimes even fatal. Hard hats were first worn at a construction site by order of the project chief engineer when work on the Golden Gate Bridge began in 1933 in San Fransisco. Hard hats were initially made of metal but these soon made way for fiberglass around the 1950`s. Today the most preferred material for the manufacture of hard hats is High-Density Polyethylene or HDPE.

Fibre Metal Hard Hats with 8 Point Ratchet Suspension are a popular choice among many users. These hard hats come completely assembled by Fibre Metal and it can safely be assumed that the graphics will not chip or peel. The helmet has an eight-point impact energy control system.

The best part of the smooth design is that it can conveniently be worn backward or forward and still comply with required standards.
The impact energy dispersal design in the Fibre Metal Hard Hats helps to absorb the impact and spread it out rather than let it affect a specific part of the head.
