Allegro Nova 2000 Sand Blasting Helmet
Modern safety equipment favors light weight and streamlined design. Comfort also heads up a list of must-haves. One of the first things you notice when you put the NV2000 helmet on is the pillow foam padding. This ensures the helmet always sits comfortably on your head. The padding is hook and loop mounted and easily removed for cleaning. The large wrap around double lens offers a larger than traditional field of view. The inner lens complies with safety standards for impact resistance, providing a high level of protection.
Air duct distribution diffuses an even flow of breathing air throughout the NV2000 to cool the head and face, and prevents the lens from fogging. Multi-layered sound deadening foam makes this helmet the quietest on the market. Depending on the surroundings, you may still need earplugs, but this is a serious step forward. The high pitched sound from abrasive blasting can wear you out in no time, along with the dangers of hearing loss.
The NV2000 has a tough polyethylene helmet shell that meets ANSI Z89.1 requirements. It is also U.V. stabilized and abrasion resistant. Breathing air evenly flows throughout the helmet minimizing lens fogging and cooling the user. The lightweight helmet padding ensures comfortable and proper fit for workers.

Does the Nova 2000 come with any specific noise reduction rating? You state that the helmet has sound absorbing foam, but have you done any tests to determine how much the noise of sandblasting is reduced for the wearer?1 answer
Checking with Allegro tech support, they have done internal testing to verify noise reduction claims. With a 120db noise source located 1 foot away from the helmet, a reduction of 30db was recorded. 120db is intensely loud, and likely is reflective of the conditions encountered with a sand blasting application. So, while bringing the volume down to 90db is good, please bear in mind that you would still require some level of hearing protection. Also, the testing may not be as well documented as we might like.
General Question: Does the NOVA 2000 Blasting Helmet come in different sizes?1 answer
The Nova 2000 only comes in one size (universal sizing)
