Petzl Helmets and Accessories

Protection for workers at height

A helmet must protect against impact and falling objects, but it should not get in the way while being worn.


  • VERTEX helmets have a six-point webbing suspension system for maximum comfort on the head.
  • ALVEO helmets have an internal expanded polystyrene foam liner for reduced weight.


These helmets are very durable. They meet professional requirements, and come with the option of mounting eye and hearing protection.

Choosing between ventilated and non-ventilated models depends on the risks associated with the work environment (electric, molten metal splash, etc.).

Helmets should protect the wearer’s head from impacts and falling objects, while not interfering with work. Petzl’s helmets for work-at-height (Vertex Best and Vertex Vent) feature a reinforced chinstrap, to help reduce the risk of the helmet coming off in the event of a fall. Well suited for professional use, these helmets are durable and provide attachment points compatible with popular face shields and hearing protection. The choice between the non-ventilated or ventilated models depends on the risks encountered at the work site (working around electricity, molten metal splash, etc.)

Product Marking and Tracking


Since 1992, all Petzl personal protective equipment (PPE) items have been marked with a tracking number. This number consists of 5 digits and a letter. The first 2 digits indicate the year the product was manufactured, the following 3 digits indicate the production date (from 1 to 366) and the letter represents the person who performed the final inspection. Textile products, helmets and most metallic items also have an additional
individual identifier. The system makes it easier to track PPE effectively.
