KOROYD, a global leader in advanced impact technology, in partnership with Caco America LLC, a GE brand licensee for personal protective equipment for the North, Central and South American continents, has announced the launch of the new GE branded GH400 Type 1 safety helmet. Available now at select retailers and distributors across North America and Latin America, the new award-winning GH400 maximizes KOROYD’s patented impact absorption with proven heat stress reduction, setting a new standard in industrial head protection, further safeguarding employee health, and minimizing injury risk caused by rising temperatures on the job site.
The first helmet to be engineered with KOROYD technology as the sole energy absorber, the GH400 absorbs impacts more efficiently than traditional EPS foam liners by crumpling consistently to reduce force transferred to the head. KOROYD advanced impact technology outperforms EPS, absorbing energy through 80% of the material thickness.
The unique open cell structure of KOROYD, which is 95% air, also enhances air circulation and evaporation of sweat vapor and liquid. Recent testing has demonstrated KOROYD-integrated helmets can reduce heat index by up to 8°F/4.5°C compared to traditional EPS helmets. KOROYD is proven to help maintain cooler body temperatures to prevent heat stress risks while also reducing potential for short-term removal on the job site that can occur on warmer days. www.geppe.cacoamerica.com/product/safety-helmet/
