SAFETY WARNINGS

BATLSKIN® HEAD PROTECTION SYSTEMS

For safety reasons, read the manual to ensure proper Head Protection System assembly and fit. A Head Protection System that is not properly fitted may result in serious injury or death due to ballistic, blunt force or blast impact.

HELMET FIT WARNINGS

  • A helmet that is not properly fitted to head may result in serious injury or death due to ballistic, blunt force or blast impact.
  • A helmet that has been impacted must be replaced as soon as possible as it will no longer offer the same level of protection in the event of a second impact.

FRONT MOUNT WARNINGS

  • If front mount is not installed, all holes must be filled with bolts & t-nuts to maintain ballistic protection. Unfilled holes in the helmet shell may lead to serious injury or death.
  • A damaged front mount may not hold headborne equipment in place securely. Unsecured headborne equipment may obstruct vision leading to serious injury or death.

RETENTION SYSTEM WARNINGS

  • Retention system strap anchors must be covered by the helmet liner at all times.
  • Ensure helmet is secure on the head by adjusting retention straps securely and evenly so that the helmet is stable and level.
  • Damage to the webbing, stitching, or hardware means the helmet may not remain securely on the head during use. Replace retention system immediately if damage occurs. Serious injury or death could occur due to an insecure helmet.

LINER WARNINGS

  • If the liner experiences any impact while being worn or the soldier experiences a concussion while wearing the helmet, the liner must be replaced. It will not provide the same impact protection for a second impact and serious injury or death could result if the liner is not replaced.
  • Use only specified liner and retention system. Failure to do so may result in injury or death.
  • Removing liner pads will compromise impact protection and may result in injury or death.
  • Damage to the liner comfort foam will compromise the impact protection offered by the helmet. Replace the liner if foam is exposed, damaged or missing.
  • Using the wrong size helmet may reduce protection, affect stability of the helmet, cause physical and thermal discomfort, limit head range of motion or change compatibility with other equipment.
  • Liner must be flush with helmet trim and retention system hardware must be covered by the liner. Failure to do this may allow the hardware to come into contact with the user’s head and could lead to injury or death.

MODULAR SUSPENSION SYSTEM WARNINGS

  • If the liner experiences any significant impact event while being worn or the soldier experiences a concussion while wearing the helmet, the liner must be replaced. It will not provide the same impact protection for a second impact and serious injury or death could result.
  • Removing parts of the liner will compromise protection and may result in injury or death.
  • Damage to the comfort foam in the brow pad or around the fit band could reduce the protection offered by the helmet. Replace brow pad and/or fit band if foam is exposed, damaged or missing.
  • Using the wrong size helmet may reduce protection, affect stability of the helmet, cause physical and thermal discomfort, limit head range of motion or change compatibility with other equipment. Proper fit is essential.
  • Brow pad must be flush with helmet trim and must cover the retention system hardware. Failure to line the brow pad up in this manner may allow the hardware or helmet brim to come into contact with the user’s head during impact and could lead to injury or death.
  • Ensure helmet is secure on the head by adjusting retention straps securely and evenly so that the helmet is stable and level.
  • Damage to the webbing, stitching, or hardware means the helmet may not remain securely on the head during use. Replace retention system immediately if damage occurs. Serious injury or death could occur due to an unsecure helmet.

MANDIBLE GUARD WARNINGS

  • The mandible guard must be properly secured to the helmet to provide protection during an impact. If not properly secured, injury or death may result during impact.
  • A mandible guard that has experienced any impact while being worn or if a soldier experiences a concussion while wearing the mandible, the mandible must be replaced. It will not provide the same impact protection for a second impact and serious injury or death could result if the liner is not replaced.

BALLISTIC VISOR WARNINGS

  • A visor that is not properly fitted to the helmet may result in serious injury or death in case of ballistic, blunt force, or blast impact.
  • A visor that has been impacted during a severe impact event must be replaced as soon as possible as it will no longer offer the same level of protection in the event of a second impact.
  • Damage to the visor arm may render the device incapable of supporting the visor. Do not use if arm is damaged as it may compromise protection and could result in injury or death.
  • Do not use this visor for protection against laser light unless using a laser specialty lens. Laser light can cause permanent damage to eyes even if wearing this visor.
  • Do not use for chemical splash or chemical vapor exposure protection.
  • Do not use ammonia, alkaline cleaners, abrasive cleaning compounds or solvents when cleaning visor. Use of certain solvents may lower the impact resistance of the visor.
