uvex safety capA sporty look but guaranteed safety! The Uvex Shell cap is the essential accessory for working with confidence, without risk of injury, even in areas where wearing a helmet is not necessary. It offers reliable impact protection and also complies with the EN 812 standard for PPE, i.e. personal protective equipment. For optimal efficiency, it is composed in particular of a rigid shell with a honeycomb structure and shock-absorbing elements. It is also equipped with a long visor very practical for outdoor work so as not to be disturbed by the sunlight. One size but adjustable thanks to a velcro strap at the back, finally opt for a black look that is both classic and versatile, perfect for the professional environment.

My opinion : Beautiful, well designed and practical, this safety cap from Uvex is my favorite and I would definitely recommend it! What I like most about this model is that it is the perfect mix between a simple look and a protective accessory. Thanks to its solid shell, you will feel perfectly protected and, at the same time, with its black fabric and white baseball-style stitching, no one but you will be able to know that you are wearing protective equipment. The fact that it meets the standards is also reassuring, and to top it off, it even comes at a very affordable price. It might be missing a few vents, it can get hot underneath, but if you had to aim for one particular model where safety is paramount, this would definitely be the one!

silent safety blanketWith reflective tape and high visibility fabric! For its security coverage, Silent has opted for global protection, both visual and physical. In addition to this band and this color to be perfectly visible, a 10 mm thick terry cloth meeting the requirements of the EN 812 standard provides protection against shocks and scratches. Comfort hasn’t been overlooked, as mesh fabric on the sides keeps air flowing and your head breathing, while there’s also a sweatband to keep you dry. Covering sizes 54 to 60, an adjustable strap at the back allows for an optimal fit. Made of 100% cotton fabric, this cap can finally be worn in all weathers, from -10° to +50°!

My opinion : The perfect construction hat! It’s impossible not to see you with this Silent on your head and that’s exactly what it’s aiming for. It is also an element that I really liked because there are many work environments where visibility in all circumstances matters more than anything. This model also has the advantage of being of excellent quality, both in terms of fabric, seams and internal protection. If the latter is not chipped, it still plays its role of injury prevention very well and this foam also allows you to sweat less than with a solid element directly on the skull. It also makes everything lighter, making it easier to use, whether during the day or occasionally. If what matters most to you is to be seen, you will be totally satisfied!

wolfcrat safety capIdeal for protecting against bumps and scratches! The Wolfcraft is a cap with a shell capable of guaranteeing the safety of those who wear it in all places where wearing a helmet is not mandatory. Whether for professionals or individuals, it is perfectly reinforced and also meets the EN 812 standard for PPE. Pleasant to wear thanks to the addition of a foam, its visor also protects against the sun’s rays and is at the same time equipped with 2 wide openings on the sides so that the skull is not stuck and the air continues to circulate . Thanks to its classic design and discreet color, it does not stand out and although it is offered in one size, the standard measurements are chosen to adapt to most head sizes.

My opinion : A good quality / price ratio among all the safety covers that I had the opportunity to try! The main thing that differentiates this Wolfcraft from previous models in this selection is that it does not have a Velcro strap on the back to adjust to your head. It is therefore a detail that must be taken into account, especially if you have a small skull. But for everything else, he defends himself very well. It is perfectly reinforced thanks to its protective shell and is discreet enough not to attract attention. As is often the case with this type of equipment, you may sweat a little too much, especially in places with direct sunlight, but in other conditions the ventilation works quite well. For this price, this level of protection, and with this comfort, it’s definitely a good option.

portwest safety capWith a wide variety of colors! Portwest offers its safety cap in a wide variety of colors to suit all tastes, whether to be more visible (with orange or neon yellow for example) or on the contrary to give you a sporty look and remain incognito. gray or black). Because beyond the design, it is in fact an accessory that protects against blows and injuries thanks to the presence of a shell inside (which complies with the EN 812 standard). Thanks to the large mesh inserts (ie air mesh), breathability is also increased: perspiration is never blocked, enough to offer more comfort on a daily basis, even during long working hours. . Please note that it comes in one size but will fit most standard head sizes.

My opinion : If I wanted to introduce you to this Portwest, it’s because it has two elements that other models sometimes lack: more options and more ventilation! Obviously, what jumps out at first glance is the design. And there, it is strong because it is very pretty with its contrasting color band and is able to match all tastes and desires. But beyond that, it also knows how to be breathable thanks to its mesh fabric and it’s always nice not to sweat too much when you wear it. Of course, it’s still a reinforced cap, with a protective layer that won’t hurt you, but it’s clearly a model that you can choose for the look it will give you!

ferko safety capA shell cap hidden behind a classic design! The Ferko was designed to offer a solution for anyone who needs to protect their skull but doesn’t want it to be seen. For this, opt for a classic look with a 100% cotton outer fabric in black color as well as an adjustment band on the back (for an optimal fit) and ventilation holes on the sides (which allow the circulation of the air). air). It also has a wide visor that stops the sun’s rays and helps keep daylight out. In appearance therefore, it perfectly resembles a classic model, but differs from it by the obvious integration of a reinforced ABS shell to protect it from possible shocks and injuries.

My opinion : The security cover in all its simplicity! With the Ferko you go to the essentials: a shell to avoid blows, a visor to avoid the sun and a rear velcro band for a better adjustment to the head. It is also for this reason and its very low price that I have selected it: if you are looking for inexpensive personal protective equipment (PPE), it corresponds exactly to your criteria! Compared to others, it’s not the most comfortable and despite the air holes, perspiration will be present due to the shell and the black fabric that keeps you warm. But if the main thing for you is to protect your skull from sores while opting for a classic and versatile look, it should have no problem pleasing you!
