VERTEX BEST Helmet, Red Primary Use:
The BEST Helmet straps under the chin, and has a very strong clip to assure the helmet won't come off in the event of a collision or fall. This helmet is unvented to protect against electrical risks and molten metal splash. It is an ideal helmet for anyone working in colder areas, or who needs the added safety this style of helmet provides.
The VERTEX BEST helmet is a top-rated work helmet meeting all requirements of the ANSI Z89.1-2009 Type I Class E for helmet safety as well as the Canadian CSA Z94.1-05 Type 1 Class E standards. EN 397 and EN 12492 standards for protection against impact are also met, as are the EN 397 and EN 50365 standards for electrical insulation and the optional requirements of the EN 397 standard for lateral deformation and use in low temperatures.

This work helmet is used by professionals all over the world. In particular, it is used by cellular and wind energy technicians, tower climbers, rescue workers and many people working in industrial production facilities where climbing for maintenance is required such as petrochemical sites, gas production facilities, and pharmaceutical manufacturing sites.

Of all the helmets we sell at PK Safety, this is probably the safest. It has a smart fit adjustment system that keeps the head centered in the helmet. Petzl has engineered this helmet for comfort as well as safety, and they have always been at the top of the industry in terms of intelligent design.
Because it does not have side vents, the VERTEX BEST can get warm doing some types of work. If your work allows you to have a ventilated helmet, we'd recommend the VERTEX VENT. But if you want this level of safety, you won't be able to find a more comfortable helmet than the BEST in this class.

This helmet meets all requirements of the ANSI Z89.1-2009 Type I Class E for helmet safety as well as the Canadian CSA Z94.1-05 Type 1 Class E standards.
The chinstrap on the Vertex Best has a strength of 50 daN (requirement of the EN 12492 standard) to help keep the helmet on the head in case of a fall.
Putting stickers on hard hats has a long tradition in the construction business. You should be just fine there. As far as painting the hat, I am less certain. Getting paint to stick on the plastic would be a trick, but more importantly, would it have any effect on the plastic? Water based should be fine. Solvent based, likely not. We could check with Petzl, but I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t want anybody messing with their hat, for liability reasons at least.
