Ballistics Helmets – A Mandatory Tool for Today
Modern society is advancing in all areas faster, and with more technology than ever before. As great as the progress has been for tools, consumer items, and transportation, it must be noted that this rapidly changing landscape does come with advanced risks as well. Just the other day a landmark ruling against Cody Wilson decided that it is legally OK for him to publish his free 3D printable plans to print a pistol. This means that anyone in the world could download his blueprints and have this weapon printed. This also means that these new guns are untraceable as they have no serial numbers.
As society moves faster and faster it becomes even more necessary that the Police, Security, and Military also move forward in advancing their tools of the trade. If it seems like there has been a rise in protests worldwide, you’re not mistaken “ we’ve had more mass movements in this decade than in any decade since 1900.” As Police will continue to do their job in rapidly changing landscape there is one item they shouldn’t leave for last and that is their safety.
Now is the time to upgrade your helmets to cutting edge bullet proof helmets that are safer, lighter, and more comfortable than ever before.
Look at the below styles to see what you and your team would be best equipped with.
FAST Ballistic Helmet: Armor Level NIJ III-A
- FAST helmet provides the maximum amount of head protection from some of the heaviest ballistic threats. FAST style helmets are armored with EDI’s lightweight aramid ballistic material to provide secure and non-intrusive protection to the end user. Helmet protection expands from frontal forehead armoring to the lower back of the end user’s head. All FAST helmets are equipped with a durable chinstrap with a quick-release function to enable immediate removal. Helmets are fitted with accessory ports which allow the FAST helmet to be compatible with nigh vision, radio communications equipment (including earpiece & microphone), and NVG mounts. In 2016, EDI re-modified the FAST helmet with new lightweight armoring material which yielded a 27% lighter model than previous FAST styles.
PASGT Ballistic Helmet: Armor Level NIJ III-A
- PASGT helmet provides the most head protection for some of the toughest ballistic threats. PASGT-style helmets are armed with EXTRA- light aramid ballistic material to provide non-invasive safety and protection to the user. The helmet protection expands from the forehead to the rear lower part of the user head, and includes ear protection and a small visor on the top of face. All PASGT helmets are equipped with a durable chin strap with a quick-release feature to facilitate immediate removal. Finally, PASGT helmets are painted with Poly-Urea paint that is resistant to bad weather, water and resistant to sun de-coloration. In 2015, EDI re-modified the PASGT hull with a new lightweight shielding material that yielded an 18% lighter model than previous PASGT styles.
MICH Ballistic Helmet: Armor Level NIJ III-A
- MICH helmet provides the most head protection for some of the toughest ballistic threats. MICH-style helmets are armed with EXTRA-light aramid ballistic material to provide non-invasive safety and protection to the user.
