Made from a fiber reinforced resin to withstand impacts, Dax FRP hats differ from their full-carbon alternatives by offering a Class G ANSI safety standard. The change in material means that these hard hats are designed to reduce exposure to low voltage conductors and they offer dielectric protection up to 2,200 volts (phase to ground). Formerly categorized as “Class A,” the Class G hard hat is the most common hard hat style. Like the Carbon options, Dax FRP hard hats are available in both full brim or cap styles and natural or hi-viz colors.
Dax Hard Hat Lifespan
Hard hat lifespan varies depending on the conditions of the jobsite. Hard hats subjected to more wear and tear or used outdoors in direct sunlight may need to be replaced more frequently. The best way to determine when to replace a hard hat shell, suspension, or the unit in its entirety is to conduct daily inspections. Suggested replacement is based on service life–when the hard hat was placed into service, not the manufacture date. In general, it’s recommended to replace hard hats every five years, regardless of outside appearance.
