MK 7 Safety Helmet from JSP

Safety HelmetBuilding on over 30 years experience designing and manufacturing industrial safety helmets, JSP are pleased to introduce the most feature-rich safety helmet designed yet.  The MK 7 helmets have been designed with comfort, performance and style in mind and incorporate the most innovative features seen yet on a safety helmet.

The helmets come with three principle options as follows;

- with standard peak for sun and wet weather protection or;
- short peak for working at heights or surveying;

- in non-ventilated format giving insulation against the electrical test or;
- in ventilated format in the crown of the helmet to ensure maximum convection of heat away from the wearer and fresh cool air to ventilate.


High Visability PaintAccidents are unusual, but when they happen they tend to be slips and trips. Hazards presented by kerbs or steps can be reduced by the use of Watco High Visibility Paint.  Its special fluorescent pigments offer excellent visibility, and the paint can be used on concrete, stone, brick, masonry or asphalt and similar porous surfaces.
Applied by brush or roller, Watco High Visibility Paint can be applied to damp surfaces and only one coat is normally required.

The product is also ideal for line marking, walkways and playgrounds, and offers excellent resistance to UV and weathering.
