Whether you are using a Type 1 or Type 2 MSA hard hat, following proper care and use recommendations can help keep its protection capabilities in place. Be sure to inspect your hard hat prior to each use and during the day; remember, you might not notice when damage occurs and even a hairline crack can affect the integrity.
Not sure which category your hard hat falls into?
Type 1 options consist of:
- V-Gard® Caps and Hats, including the new V-Card C1™ Hard Hat
- SmoothDome® Caps
- Thermalgard® Caps
- Topgard® Caps and Hats
- Skullgard® Caps and Hats
- Comfo-Cap® Hard Hats
Type 2 options from MSA are Super V® Helmets, which feature a foam liner with integrated Fas-Trac® suspension and are slotted for use with MSA accessories.
