Helmet for mountaineers
Unknown
Product description
Climbing helmet for mountaineers. The product was sold online (in particular via Amazon).
Risk
Furthermore, the helmet is insufficiently stable. Stones impacting the helmet could perforate it, possibly leading to serious head injuries. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Personal Protective Equipment Directive (since 21/04/2018 repealed by the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation) and the relevant European Standard EN 12492.
Measures taken
The vertical shock absorbing capacity is too small. In the event of impact to the helmet, for example as a result of falling rocks, the incident energy is insufficiently absorbed and can cause concussion and even loss of consciousness or coma.
