 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

In pursuit of creating the safest and most technologically advanced industrial safety helmet, North American safety helmet innovator STUDSON recently announced its new SHK-1 Full-Brim ANSI Type II Safety Helmet. The new full-brim helmet represents the first of its kind in the Type II safety helmet category.

The STUDSON SHK-1 Full-Brim safety helmet is designed to prevent traumatic brain injuries, featuring technologies to absorb impacts from fall-related injuries on any job site. It is the only full-brim safety helmet that complies with ANSI Z89.1 Type I and II safety standards, meaning it is designed to reduce force as a result of impacts to the front, back, sides and top of the head. Most existing hard hats are only Type I compliant, meaning they are only rated to protect the head from falling objects.
