The new Gallet F1 XF fire helmet from MSA is designed with firefighters’ needs in mind and is the fifth generation of the F1 Helmet.
MSA says that it offers a perfectly balanced fit and comfortable headband. The headband comes equipped with a ratchet knob and is available with leather or textile paddings, plus numerous intuitive adjustments ensure an ergonomic fit on different wearer profiles. An impact liner with extended coverage offers improved impact protection in the most demanding structural firefighting conditions.
The face shield offers exceptional coverage and field of vision and is available in clear and metal-coated versions, with certified anti-fog and anti-scratch characteristics. An optional ocular visor with dual pivot system for effective eye protection is adjustable to fit any face shape, even when using corrective eyewear.
ATEX-approved, easy-to-install accessories provide protection in potentially explosive environments. These include Integrated proximity lighting that has an innovative two area light distribution to provide improved visibility in poorly lit environments; a bracket is available for external lamps. Other accessories include helmet-mounted MSA headsets with bone conductive or noise cancelling boom microphone, plus connection to a wide range of radios through push-to-talk (PTT), and integrated earmuffs with level dependent attenuation and communication capabilities.
The modular helmet design allows for quick and easy inspection and maintenance, dramatically reducing the cost of ownership over the life time of the product, and is available in two sizes. Customisation options include multiple colours, printed or metal badges and reflectants to identify rank or function. The helmet is approved according to EN443:2008 for structural firefighting, visors according to EN14458.
