Safety products: XL-sized bump cap offers head protection

safety products Ergodyne

Safety products: Ergodyne has announced the addition of a new XL-sized bump cap to its Skullerz® Head Protection offering. Now, workers of all head sizes can be protected from cranial bumps and bruises offered by the patented, state-of-the-art shell.

While major head injuries can be catastrophic, even “minor” bumps, cuts, scrapes, and bruises can necessitate medical attention and become a lost-time recordable.

Most bump caps in the marketplace today are not only static plastic “bowls,” but also just one-size-fits-all. The Skullerz® 8950XL Bump Cap offers the same comfort and style of its innovative predecessor, the 8950 Bump Cap. Both the standard and XL caps feature a removable, impact-resistant shell with foam lining. The shell’s flanged design allows for airflow and breathability while maintaining protection, and compliance. Both sizes meet the requirements of EN 812, the world’s only bump cap standard. The XL size is recommended for those with hat size 7½ or above.

Now, end users will be able to provide a standardized head protection solution across their workforce regardless of head size, providing a consistent look and level of protection, and eliminating the “odd man out” feeling among workers who may not fit a standard size cap.

“Since their introduction, Skullerz® Bump Caps have literally turned this category on its head,” said Andy Olson, associate product director, Ergodyne. “The combination of protection, comfort, and breathability has made Skullerz® a hit with workers worldwide. Our customers requested this larger size to ensure a single protective, branded option to all sizes in the workforce and we were only too happy to oblige.”

Ideal for applications where worker-generated impact is a hazard or workplaces that don’t require a hard hat but still have head injury risks, the Skullerz® 8950XL Bump Cap is available in black or navy NOW at all authorized Ergodyne distributors worldwide.
