Bullard Introduces the GenVX® Blasting Helmet

The next generation of blasting
JANUARY 16, 2013 – CYNTHIANA, KY – GenVX is the newest blasting helmet from Bullard, providing users with the industry's lightest, coolest, most comfortable, and most dependable helmet on the market. It is a full pound lighter than competitive products and offers the most cooling options for added comfort.Constructed from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) for superior strength, the sleek design of the GenVX allows air to pass directly over the user's head, providing greater air flow and improved cooling. In addition, the helmet offers launderable, removable, and adjustable cheek pads for increased comfort and stability and a “Grit Guard” visor that keeps debris out of the lens.

Additional GenVX features include:

  • Six-point suspension with wide 1″ straps for comfort and a ratchet knob for easy adjustment
  • Center breathing tube connection for added comfort and balance
  • Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 1,000, independently tested by a third party
  • An injection-molded door for precise tight sealing
  • A latch guard to secure the cape

GenVX meets ANSI/ISEA Z89 Head Protection and High-Impact Z87+ Face Protection and is NIOSH approved.
