Frequently Asked Questions
The CEN10 is a hardhat designed to be modern and comparable to a helmet worn in sporting activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, etc. Unlike traditional Type I hard hats, CEN10 is little to no brim, has a foam insert rather than a suspension, and comes with a built-in chinstrap.
A Type I hardhat provides for protection from blows to the top of the head
standards provided by ANSI/ISEA in the United States. These hardhats
typically have a
strap suspension inside, but this is not always the case.
A Type II hardhat provides for protection from blows to both the top and to the sides of the head based on standards provided by ANSI/ISEA in the United States. These hardhats typically have a foam insert to allow for side impact protection.
Although Type II hardhats typically have foam inside, all hats that have foam do not necessarily provide Type II protection. Many of these new hats are Type I despite having foam inside. You should always check the label or verbiage inside the hardhat to verify which “Type” the hat is.
This foam on the side of the CEN10 may provide additional side impact protection when compared to a Type I hardhat, but it does not meet the qualifications for a Type II hardhat. The extent of side impact protection for the CEN10 today is currently being tested in our facilities.
“Class” for hardhats is a measure of the hat’s ability to resist electrical current and is also determined by standards provided by ANSI/ISEA in the United States. Hardhat classes include Class E (Electrical), Class G (General), and Class C (Conductive). Class E is the highest electrical rating and the hats are tested to 20,000 volts. Class G is tested to 2,200 volts. Finally, Class C does not provide for any electrical protection.
The CEN10 is currently available in both vented and non-vented. The vented CEN10 is Class C, while the non-vented CEN10 meets Class E & G.
