ERGONIUM / Personal head protection

ERGONIUM
ERGONIUM

ERGONIUM is the first helmet truly dedicated to mining, bringing a new standard to head protection and comfort for miners. The ergonomic layered architecture and enhanced weight distribution reduces stress, load and fatigue for users carrying the helmet. This design solution will prevent work-related injuries and irreversible damages.

Being with miners for a few days helped to tackle their unexpected wishes and cultural desires. The result emphasizes the miners’ trends and expectations in an innovative combination
of soft and hard materials.
