The Hard Hat for Everyday Heroes

In addition to uniting the electrical industry in the fight against breast cancer, these fully functional hard hats also include unique safety features specific to the needs of utility, construction and industrial workers. 

With engineering advancements in suspension design, a lightweight shell, a patented UV indicator and numerous customization options, the H-700 and H-800 help alleviate workers’ frustrations with hard hats on the job.

  • Optional Built-In UVicator  –  Hard hats typically have a shelf life of 2-5 years. This is mainly due to sun exposure combined with normal wear and tear.  As it is difficult to identify the lifespan of a hard hat, the UVicator changes from red to white when it becomes too brittle and needs to be replaced.  
  • Ratchet Suspension – Another unique feature is the ratcheting head piece. When you put the hard hat on and turn the ratchet down, you can easily bend over and pick up dropped tools, parts or pieces while the hat stays securely in place.

Thousands of electrical workers and supporters around the country will be participating. Join the movement by wearing your heart on your head!
