We can all agree that no matter what jobsite one finds oneself on, head protection is one of if not the most important aspect of entering and working on said site. Hard hats have literally saved lives, from coverage for falling debris in the mines of the early 1900s to protecting workers from falling rivets during construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in the 1930s to sparing a hurricane relief worker in Texas when an entire tree fell onto his head back in 2015. For over a hundred years, hard hats have protected us from the worst possible injuries, and innovations in the field have led from the original E.D. Bullard Hard Boiled Hat (pictured below) to all of today’s varieties of climbing, ballcap, and full brim style hard hats. Of course, the question then becomes which hard hat do I choose? There seem to be new manufacturers popping up every day promising the next best thing, but how does one truly know what the next best thing is? Thankfully, one doesn’t have to put one’s trust into a new startup that we’ve never heard of; Klein have got our backs.
Introducing the all-new Konstruct Hard Hat from Klein! With a shell constructed of lightweight fiber-reinforced polymers, you’ll get an added layer of protection against impacts, wide operating temperatures, and electrical surges, all without sacrificing an ounce of weight on your head. The comfort sweatband and top pad provide a bonus level of coverage and protection, and the six-point, open-frame suspension system provides improved stability and a more secure fit, while also offering optimized airflows throughout the hard hat for cooling purposes. No more sweaty helmet hair at the end of the day with this thing!
Klein have also, of course, met as many safety standards as they could with this new line of hard hats. ANSI Z89.1 and CSA Z94.1-15 classifications are both met, and you’ll be getting Type I protection from top impacts and penetrations, and Class G for electrical protection up to 2kV. Where Klein shines, however, is in their Low Temperature and High Temperature ranges; each hard hat is rated for up to -22°F in Low Temperatures, and up to 140°F in High Temperatures, offering you exceeding levels of protection even in the harshest conditions. The large ratchet knob on the back offers easy adjustments to the fit of the hard hat even with bulky gloves on, saving you time and keeping you safe on the jobsite.
