ADVENT® Helmet Models A1 (2-point chin strap) and A2 (3-point chin strap) User Instructions

WARNING No helmet can protect the wearer against all foreseeable impacts. ADVENT helmets are designed to provide limited protection to the head by reducing the force of falling or flying objects striking the top and sides of the helmet shell. This is accomplished through partial destruction of helmet components upon impact. Avoid contact with electrical wires. NEVER ALTER OR MODIFY THE HELMET SHELL OR SUSPENSION SYSTEM. ALWAYS USE BULLARD REPLACEMENT PARTS. THE HELMET CHIN STRAP MUST BE SECURELY FASTENED AND WORN AT ALL TIMES TO HELP THE HELMET PROTECT AGAINST OFF-CENTER BLOWS. Do not remove the chin strap from the helmet. Inspect your helmet shell and suspension regularly. Check for cracks, frayed straps and any signs of damage before each use. Replace the helmet immediately if you notice any signs of wear, damage, abuse or environmental degradation. The interior impact liner must remain securely fastened to outer shell. If the impact liner is loose, replace the helmet immediately. If the helmet has sustained a forcible blow (impact), dispose of it immediately, even if damage is not visible. HELMET SERVICE LIFE: This helmet does not have an indefinite service life. Conditions found in many work environments, such as exposure to ultraviolet light, temperature extremes, chemical exposure, and wear and tear from daily use, will reduce the protective properties of the helmet over time. Ask about your employer’s helmet replacement policy. As a general guideline, Bullard recommends replacing helmets within five years of use. WARNING Read all instructions and warnings before wearing this hel- met. Failure to follow these instructions could result in death or serious injury.

THIS HELMET IS NOT FOR MOTOR VEHICLE USE OR STRUCTURAL FIRE FIGHTING. Failure to follow these instructions could result in death or serious injury.

Your ADVENT Helmet ADVENT helmets represent a revolutionary approach to head protection. The helmet provides limited impact protection to the top, front, back and sides of the head. But that’s not all. It is also constructed to slow an impact and to reduce the amount of impact (“G” forces) transmitted to the brain, neck and spine. The level of head protection offered by ADVENT helmets is simply not available in conventional hard hats. Please take a moment to read these instructions, even if you are experienced with conventional head protection products. Each ADVENT helmet features an expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam core placed between a polycarbonate alloy outer shell and an ABS inner shell to help absorb impact and to help protect against penetration of sharp objects. An expanded polyethylene (EPE) crown cushion further reduces top impacts. The adjustable chin strap with quick-release buckle helps retain the helmet squarely on the user’s head. Wearer comfort is designed into each Bullard helmet. The Sure-Lock ® ratchet and 8-point suspension system work to provide a secure, comfortable fit. There are ventilation channels in the inner shell that help air circulate. ADVENT helmets meet or exceed ANSI/ISEA Z89.1 Type II, Class E and G requirements. Please read and follow the instructions to assure proper fit and to maintain the level of protection for which the helmet was designed.
