The protective function of the safety helmet is only fully effective if it fits optimally and the headband is adjusted to fit the head. Please take time to read through this manual carefully in order to get the best protection from your helmet.
This safety helmet must fit optimally or be accordingly adjusted to the user’s head size in order to ensure reliable protection. Ensure that the helmet with the peak facing forwards sits property on the head.
The safety helmet is designed to absorb the energy generated by an impact, doing so by means of partial.destruction or by damage to the helmet shell and suspension, and must be replaced following a severe impact, this applies even if the damage is not directly visible or identifiable.
Users are also alerted to the risk that arises if any of the helmet’s original components are modified or removed contrary to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Safety helmets should not be adapted in any way whatsoever for the fitting of add-on parts.
Paint, solvents, adhesives or self-adhesive labels may only be applied or affixed to the helmet if done in accordance with the instructions issued by the helmet manufacturer.
Adjusting the headband
Ratchet closure variant
Adjusting to a smaller head size: Simply slip the two ends of the headband at the nape together to the required head size. Adjusting to a larger head size: Gently press the headband at the two points marked “press” and pull the two halves of the headband apart to the required head size.
Twist closure variant
Adjust the head size to be tighter or looser by pressing the rotary wheel in or against the clockwise direction.
Adjusting the wearing height
The suspension system can be adjusted to change the wearing height of the helmet. To do this, move the fastening parts of the headband higher or lower in the carrier elements of the spider and button in accordingly The safety helmet comes works adjusted with the wearing height at its lowest setting (Exception: l/52 RE NL with flexible wearing height)
Clean the safety helmet shell and interior fitments with lukewarm soapy water. Replace sweatbands if required. Do not use solvents (e.g. cellulose thinners). Correct cleaning, care and treatment of the safety helmet are essential to guarantee its full function.
Modifications to the helmet
Note ! Your safety helmet conforms to current standards in its supplied state and therefore should not be modified or fitted with non-standard parts. Incorrect or non-standard interior fitments, holes drilled subsequently for accessories, and other modifications to the safety helmet will impair the protective function and make the approval invalid, Only replacement parts and accessories that are specifically made for the safety helmet should be used. In case of doubt, please contact us directly,
Replacement parts and accessories
Only SCHUBERTH original replacement parts and accessories should be used. As replacement parts, we supply interior fitments, sweatbands and chinstraps Accessories are available for aye, face and hearing protection and protection against the weather.
Adaptable ear defenders are available for some SCHUBERTH safety helmet models. Only use ear defenders that are explicitly suitable for use with your helmet. For Information on this and explanations on the use, operation and features of ear defenders, please refer to the respective user manual.
With an item of personal protective equipment, the minimum service life to be expected (from date of manufacture) limits the usable life. This applies even if the average service life, as with duroplastic materials, is sub substantially more than this.
Duroplastic helmet shells
Duroplastic safety helmet shells are not subject to any effects of sunlight (UV radiation). and have excellent resistance to aging (low degree of embitterment). The duration of use of such safety helmets is primarily limited by mechanical damage. SCHUBERTH helmet made of thermoplastic materials should not longer be used 10 years after their date of manufacture. As the interior trim of Duroplastic helmets is made of thermoplastic material, it should be replaced at least twice during the helmet’s service life.
this includes hairline cracks in the surface structure that in some circumstances can in conjunction with moisture cause a gradual tatiguing of the helmet shell.
Thermoplastic safety helmet shells are more sensitive to UV than duroplastic helmets. They should therefore be examined regularly. If you can hear cracking sounds when you press the helmet shell together or bend the peak of the helmet.
The time periods under BGR 193 set forth here are values calculated from studies, and may vary in practice ne in accor responsible for the ser- required head and pull the depending on the operating condition of the safety helmet. As such, a protective helmet may by all means be fully functional and capable of protection after the expiration of such time periods.
Notes on use :-
Correct handling of the safety helmet is essential to ensure that it functions perfectly. Check the helmet shell and interior fitments regularly. If you find any damage, you should replace the helmet. After a heavy impact, the safety helmet should no longer be used. This applies even if the safety helmet shows no visible damage. Electrically insulating helmets should not be used on their own, but Instead in conjunction with other, compatible PPE (personal protective equipment) that is suited for protecting against the risks involved in the work in question, Before use, check that your helmet’s protection class is adequate for coping with the nominal voltage that is likely to be encountered during the work in question, Insulating helmets should not be exposed to situations that entail the risk of a partial reduction in the insulating properties. If the helmet has become dirty or soiled (oil, tar, paint, etc) then it must be cleaned carefully on the outside, particularly on the outside sur face, in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
