Pfanner Protos Integral Arborist Helmet
The extreme demands of Forestry and Arborist work were what inspired the development of the Protos® Integral. All parts of the Protos®, from visor to hearing protection, are integrated within the shell of the helmet to prevent catching on obstacles, such as branches. The innovative inner shell offers superior comfort and additional safety around the neck area. The Protos® Integral Arborist is the perfect choice for the toughest applications and extreme weather conditions. All modular components can be moved from active to passive positions using only two fingers, which helps the user stay focused on their work.
The modular design of the Protos® means that most parts are readily available and easy to replace. The ease of maintenance reduces waste and adds to the longevity of your investment.
SENA installation: 1-3 days to complete. It will ship as soon as it's completed.
The perfect fit and optimum hold of the Protos® Integral Arborist make it perfect for work at height, where face protection is indispensable. The hearing and face protection are integrated into the shell of the head protection and thereby prevent snagging on branches and protruding parts. The special design of the Protos® Integral allows the cooling air to flow in from all sides and to escape through the ventilation gate. This ensures that the head does not collapse even during the most strenuous activities. After tiring work the KlimaAIR® Set can be exchanged and washed to maintain the hygiene. The guide of the chin strap is designed so that it cannot slip under the hearing protection where it would affect the noise reduction or the wearing comfort. Of course the Protos® Integral Arborist is certified according to ANSI Z133.
The Protos® Integral Arborist is adapted to work at heights. In an environment that requires maximum concentration and attention, the head protection cannot cause any interference, let alone slip out of place. Thanks to its far-reaching neck shell, the head protection fits perfectly even when working in sloping or overhead positions, thus providing a safe hold. Due to the difficulty in getting the hands free at height, the entire modular principle with can be adjusted with only two fingers. Therefore, each element can be regulated at any time. This model is also equipped with a chin strap.
For safety reasons, the outer Protos® shell should be replaced every 5 years (starting from the manufacturing date). This is available separately. For hygiene reasons, we recommend washing the main support pads regularly and replacing them every 2–3 years in case of daily use.
