Type II Hard Hats
The MSA Vanguard Type II hard hats were designed to provide impact protection in the event of a blow to the side of the head head; as well as, a blow from the top of the head.
The Vanguard II, is a Class E hard hat and meets all ANSI requirements as a Type II hard hat (U.S. ANSI Z89.1-2014). These hard hats are also certified for use in Canada under CSA Z94.1-05 regulations.
Each hat has an additional foam insert that is approximately ½ inch throughout the entire shell of the hard hat. These hard hats have been tested to handle the same impact resistance on the side and the top of the helmet.
