What are bump caps?
A bump cap, safety cap or industrial cap is a headgear, usually in the form of a baseball cap, into which a plastic insert is incorporated to protect the head. It is mainly used in industry, especially where helmets are not compulsory, but you should still avoid bumping your head against wants to protect sharp-edged parts or falling materials. Due to the more flexible construction, a bump cap is also lighter than a helmet and is more comfortable to wear.
For which applications is a bump cap recommended?
Falling or hanging objects can cause injury if a safety helmet according to EN 397 is not worn. Fixed or protruding objects, devices and machines can hit your head or get abrasions. A Viwanda bump cap according to CE EN 812 protects against this. In contrast to a protective helmet, however, a bump cap has a significantly lower energy absorption capacity and therefore cannot reliably protect against objects that hit with high energy. It is therefore not an acceptable substitute for a protective helmet in environments such as construction sites.
Consequently, the protective cap closes the gap in the range of helmets for those areas of application for which the legislature does not provide for a protective helmet, but which makes everyday work easier and supports it.
