Petzl Alveo Helmets: Vent & Best
Petzl Alveo Vent Helmet/ Alveo Best Helmet
The new Alveo Vent is Petzl's lightest weight and most ventilated helmet yet. It fits closer to the skull than the Vertex and is therefore more stable and less noticeable. The new Centerfit adjustment system with two adjustment knobs ensures optimal fit and stability by centering the head inside the shell. Compatible with Peltor ear muffs (SAF203 and SAF205) and Peltor wire mesh visor (SAF127) or clear plastic(SAF177). Shock absorption is achieved through deformation of the expanded polystyrene liner. Weighs 12 oz. Made in France.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboricultural operations. Adherence to the ANSI safety guidelines is strongly recommended by WesSpur.
ANSI standards require wearing of a helmet or hard hat while engaged in tree work. A hard hat may be used on the ground, while a climber should wear a helmet with chin-strap, as a hard had could easily become dislodged during a fall or accident.
