PX Thermoplastic helmets are designed to give firefighters that extra edge.Certified to NFPA 1971-2013, this helmet incorporates recommendations from veteran fire professionals from around the world. The result is an integrated assembly of advanced materials and quality components that provide outstanding head protection, superior comfort, durability and proven on-the-job performance
A low center of gravity provides both models with a balanced and stable fit, increasing overall comfort. Adding to the helmet's comfort and security is a natural leather ratchet pad.
Quick, Easy Sizing
Bullard's Sure-Lock ratcheted headband adjusts to the wearer's head with a quick turn of the knob. Additional adjustment points permit custom fit, personalized balance and interface with the SCBA.
Tough and Durable Protection
The outer shell of the PX is made of high heat thermoplastic formulated especially for Bullard. This material provides greater impact and penetration resistance than fiberglass and resists degradation better after repeated high heat exposures. The PX model has the color molded through the shell.
Bullard helmets are designed from the start to make maintenance simple and cost effective. For example, the browpad can easily be removed and cleaned. Competitive helmets have the brownpad sewn into the headband making for awkward cleaning and very expensive replacement.
PX helmets feature 3M Scotchlite striping which retains reflectivity to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). That makes Scotchlite the toughest material available for helmet markings.
The ReTrak series offers emergency responders a fire helmet with an integrated visor engineered based directly on feedback from firefighters.

"What is the difference between a Bullard FX and PX?"
The Composite (Fiber Glass) helmets are made up of a mixture of thermoset resins and glass fiber. Fiberglass helmets have traditionally shown their best strength against chemical exposure. Today's fiberglass helmets also protect well in high heat environments.However over time and repeated exposures to extreme temperatures the thermoset resin begins to degrade with each exposure. (FX) Thermoplastic (Plastic) are made by a process of melting and re-cooling, they are designed to accept the type of re-heating that occurs when fighting fires. Thermoplastic can be sensitive to some chemical solvents. (PX)
