The helmet's snake-head shell is highly durable but is made of lightweight high-density polyethylene material, weighing 13.1 ounces, according to the company. The soft, six-point nylon suspension is comfortable and provides strong impact absorption. The helmet is available with a pin-lock or ratchet suspension, which adjusts to fit 6 5/8 to 8 1/4 head sizes. A rain trough helps divert water from workers' faces.
The Serpent complies with the ANSI 89.1 Standard for Type I, Class C helmets only.
Gateway Safety has introduced its Serpent Ventilated Safety Helmet with the CoolSense air flow system that lets heat escape, keeping workers cooler and therefore promoting compliance. A soft cushioned brow pad helps absorb moisture and perspiration.
