Phenix Fire Helmets
Built to Standards
The standards we adhere to are one of the most important reasons to choose Phenix Technology Fire Helmets. At Phenix we have designed all of our standard model helmets to be compliant with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting, also referred to as NFPA 1971. We additionally offer different models of each series which are CA and US OSHA compliant for applications where eye, face, or ear/neck protection are not required or desirable such as Search and Rescue applications.
Some Background Information on NFPA 1971...
In 1976, the US Fire Administration and US OSHA gathered a group of fire service personnel, manufacturers, and head safety engineers to develop the "Model Performance Criteria for Structural Firefighters’ Helmets".
This standard was then adopted by US OSHA and enacted into law in 1977. In 1982, NFPA Standard 1972 Helmets for Structural Fire Fighting was introduced and remains the highest standard for today’s fire service.
Note: The NFPA 1972 was later merged into NFPA 1971.
Phenix Standards of Quality...
In addition to building our standard models of helmets to the NFPA standards, we have gone the extra mile by utilizing the real world experience of firefighters to enhance the design of our helmets. Our aim is to produce helmets that are light weight, have good balance and longevity, are comfortable, ergonomic, and are aerodynamic, all while meeting the needs of every type of fire fighting. We are proud to say that all of our fire helmets are made in the USA.
