Phenix First Due Fire Helmet

Phenix Helmets

Trusted by departments for over 44 years, the Phenix First Due structural fire helmet provides all the protection you want and need.   The safest firefighting helmet is the one you keep on your head.  Since the First Due is the lightest structural NFPA 1971 compliant helmet on the market, boasting a low center of gravity and central balance, it is less likely to create the neck and upper back fatigue so many are used to during long incidents.  The First Due Helmet is compliant to current OSHA, NFPA 1971 and NFPA 1951 standards.

•    High temperature thermo-plastic shell
•    Four 3M lime-yellow reflective 1” x 4” strips

Suspension Liner Adjustment:  Phenix suspension liners are offered in two different styles, ratchet and nape strap. Both are fully adjustable and are positioned at the nape of your neck.  The nape strap adjusts by a Velcro strip usually referred to as a "one-time adjustment".  The ratchet adjusts by an adjustment knob allowing for quicker adjustment in the field.  Phenix Helmet suspension liners are fully adjustable from 6 ½" to 8 ½".  Special sizing is available upon request.
