The Petzl Vertex helmet is very comfortable, thanks to its six-point textile suspension and Centerfit and Flip&Fit systems, which guarantee that the helmet fits securely on the head. The adjustable-strength chinstrap makes it ideal for both work at height and on the ground.

The unventilated outer shell protects against electrical hazards, molten metal splash and flames. With its potential for integration of a Petzl headlamp, hearing protection, and multiple accessories, it is an entirely modular helmet, thus responding to the specific additional needs of professionals.

Key Features

Designed for work at height and on the ground the DUAL chinstrap allows the worker to adjust chinstrap strength in order to adapt the helmet to different environments, work at height (EN 12492) or on the ground (EN 397).

The clip has two positions, corresponding to these two uses, high strength (limiting the risk of losing the helmet during a fall) and low strength (limiting the risk of strangulation if the helmet is snagged while the user is on the ground).

  • Six-point textile suspension conforms perfectly to the shape of the head.
  • CENTERFIT feature allows perfect centering of the helmet on the head, thanks to its two side adjustment wheels.
  • FLIP&FIT system allows the headband to be positioned in a low position, guaranteeing that the helmet fits securely on the head. The system folds into the shell for easy storage and transportation.
  • Comes with interchangeable standard comfort foam.
  • Shock absorption achieved through deformation of the outer shell.
  • Unventilated outer shell protects against electrical hazards, molten metal splash and flames.

Modular accessories:

  • Eye shield with EASYCLIP side attachment system for easy installation.
  • Petzl headlamp with mounts, or headlamp with elastic headband.
  • Helmet protector keeps the shell free from soiling and paint splash.
  • Nape protector provides effective sun and rain protection for the nape of the neck.
  • Nametag holder allows user to be easily identified.
  • Changeable chinstrap and foam.
  • Hearing protection.
  • Available in seven colors: white, yellow, red, black, orange, blue and green.
  • Also comes in two high-visibility versions: yellow and orange

Do not use this helmet in activities for which it is not designed. Activities at height present a risk of serious head injury. Wearing a helmet can significantly reduce this risk, but cannot entirely eliminate it. In a major impact, the helmet deforms to absorb the maximum amount of energy possible, sometimes to the point of destroying the helmet.


How should I clean the inside of my Petzl helmet?

As with any other plastic product, Petzl does not recommend using chemical products to clean your helmet.

Step by step cleaning guide.

  1. Wash helmets in lukewarm soapy water (pH neutral, 30° C maximum), then rinse thoroughly with fresh tap water.
  2. Use only household face and body soap. All other cleaning products, such as solvents, stain removers, degreasers are too powerful, are incompatible with polycarbonate, polystyrene or nylon, and can weaken the helmet shell.
  3. The shell of ABS helmets can be cleaned using a cloth lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol. Warning: do not dip the helmet directly in alcohol.
  4. Do not use a high-pressure water sprayer.
