How long can the helmet be stored without use?
We all know the importance of safety helmets, but lack of attention to the validity period. As long as there is no obvious damage, they will be used all the time. Many users even wear a safety helmet for many years, which poses great safety risks.
The validity period of safety protection products is a very important parameter. Whether it is buying or using a helmet, the first thing to pay attention to is whether the helmet is within the validity period and how long it can be used. Generally, the longest service life of a plastic safety helmet is 3 years, and a fiberglass safety helmet is 2 and a half years. Of course, due to differences in materials and technical methods, the validity period of different manufacturers may vary.
Many users have this misunderstanding, thinking that the helmet will not expire without being used. Here we need to solemnly remind everyone that according to the requirements of GB2811-2007 "Hard Hat" 6.2.10, even if it is not used, the material of the helmet will Aging, although no problems can be seen on the surface, the protective effect is greatly reduced, and there are hidden safety hazards. Each helmet will be marked with the production date on the inside, so the advice to everyone is that even if the helmet has not been used, check the production date before using it to confirm whether it is within the validity period.
So can the helmets that have passed the production date but are intact can only be scrapped? Conditional use units can go to the relevant departments for performance testing, and they can continue to use it if they pass the test. However, they need to be tested regularly every month. For individuals, it is more convenient and trouble-free to replace a new helmet.
There is also a special case. After the helmet is hit, no obvious cracks, dents, etc. are found. Can the helmet continue to be used? The answer is no. As long as this happens once, the helmet will be immediately scrapped.
