2023 NED Innovation Award Winner

The SHK-1 Full-Brim safety helmet is designed to prevent traumatic brain injuries in construction and related industries, featuring technologies to absorb impacts from fall-related injuries on any job site. It's the only full-brim safety helmet that complies with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z89.1 Type I and II safety standards, meaning it's designed to reduce force as a result of impacts to the front, back, sides, and the top of the head.


The helmet is an extension of the SHK-1 safety helmet, providing the industry with the safest helmet style yet, to better protect workers from the elements, now offering more shade from the sun and redirecting rainfall away from the face and neck.


Inside the safety helmet, Koroyd welded tube polymer is used for absorbing impact. It's 48% more effective than traditional EPS foam as it prevents energy rebound while offering greater stability. The Koroyd material also improves heat dissipation and venting via its cellular-structure design in comparison to EPS foam, helping combat heat stress.


The embedded twICEme technology digitally integrates a wearer's vital health data within the helmet. In the event of an emergency, that data is accessible via a smartphone NFC chip reader viewable through an SMS text message or the twICEme app for iOS or Android devices.
