A hard hat is basically a safety device that has evolved from the traditional military helmet. While traditional helmets had little padding the modern hard hat features suspension webbing that spreads the hard hat's weight over the top of the head. This webbing makes the hard hat more comfortable to wear as well as increasing protection. The protection is provided more by the space between the hard hat's outer shell and your head than by the toughness of the material. When an object hits the shell of the hard hat the impact is not transmitted directly to your skull but is diffused and so lessened.
Helmets Knowing that they are providing your staff and clients with great protection makes the hard hat the perfect place for your logo. You only have to look at these Custom Printed Hard Hats to see that you have a quality product that will do your logo proud.
Some say it was the author Franz Kafka that developed the first civilian hard hat, and certainly he did receive a gold medal from the American Safety Society. However, it is Edward Bullard who is considered the creator of the modern hard hat based on the soldiers helmets of WW1. The U.S. Navy began to use Bullard's helmets in their shipyards and so the use of the hard hat as standard protection began. In 1933 workers on the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco required all its men to wear hard hats.
Another form of hard hat is the "BUMP" hard hat. This is a more lightweight version of the hard hat with less suspension or perhaps only padding. Bump hard hats are design to be used only where the possibility of scraping or bumping your head such as in cramped tunnels, etc is the main danger. Take a good look at Bump Hard Hats and you will see the value for your logo of this great promotional space.
