The WELP Group will showcase its new VPAM 6 helmet for the special forces at the Eurosatory 2018 exhibition in Paris.

The WELP Group said in a statement that the VPAM 6 combat helmet offers unprecedented bullet resistance according to VPAM HVN 2009 protection class 6. This is equivalent to ballistic protection against calibre 7.62 x 39 mm ammunition. This exceptionally high ballistic protection is provided throughout the helmet’s entire surface area of 1.335 cm2.

According to the company, in contrast to the common frequently used protective helmets, the H6 PRO offers unrestrictedly high 360 degree protection. Thus, the helmet wearer is completely protected even in the edge areas. Conventional helmet manufacturers often use different materials or deliberately abandon protection of the edge areas.

The H6 PRO combat helmet has an adjustable belt system, which secures it reliably against accidental slipping. Thanks to the padded inserts, the H6 PRO also offers a high degree of wearing comfort,
which can be adjusted to different head circumferences from 51 to 65 cm by using the built-in flexible belt system. The belt system is also very easy to use and constructed for one-handed adjustments, enabling its wearer to make quick adjustments to the helmet in action.

Via a flexible rail system on the outside of the helmet, all established accessories can be attached – without screw holes through the outer shell.

The special construction of the H6 PRO offers the helmet wearer the best possible vision and the possibility of using common night vision devices. Despite its full edge protection, the hearing ability of the helmet wearer is only restricted minimally.
