New Video: Fitting the Cap Lamp Plinth to a Pacific F15

Based on feedback from key figures within the underground mining industry, Pacific Helmets have conceptualised, designed and produced a miners cap lamp attachment for the Structural Fire Helmets with a front plinth system.

The Cap Lamp Plinth is a two piece lighting solution made from hard wearing, industrial plastics. Pacific’s Cap Lamp Plinth fits to the front of compatible Structural Fire Helmets in place of a regular helmet plinth while the cord retention clip slides into a Pacific Easi On Off Base (EOB).

New Video: Refurbishing a Pacific BR5 Helmet

New Video: Refurbishing a Pacific BR5 Wildland Firefighting Helmet

The BR5 is Pacific’s heritage wildland firefighting helmet. The classic design focuses on delivering safety, quality, and comfort to the user.

The DUPONT™ KEVLAR® reinforced fibreglass composite shell provides exceptional strength and excellent penetration protection with a lifespan exceeding 10 years when cared for and stored correctly.

Pac Fire recommends refurbishing the internal components of your BR5 every 3-5 years or if the helmet is being passed on to a new team member.

Follow along with us in this clip as we fit the BR5 Refurbishment Kit to a Pacific BR5 Helmet.

New Video: Fitting the Pac Fire Earmuffs to a Pacific BR9 Helmet

New Video: Fitting the Pacific Helmets approved, Pac Fire helmet mounted earmuffs to a BR9 Wildland Firefighting Helmet

The Pacific Helmets BR9 is a popular and versatile head protection platform that accommodates a wide range of accessories.

Follow along with us as we fit the Pacific Helmets approved, Pac Fire Earmuffs to a Pacific Helmets BR9 Wildland Firefighting Helmet.

You can watch it video in this window, by click the play button or by navigating to the clip on our YouTube channel using this link: https://youtu.be/xR3wORi8iL8

While the Pac Fire earmuffs will attach to any Pacific Helmets model helmet already fitted with Earmuff Brackets – we do not recommend pairing them with a wide brim BR9 Helmet or a BR5. The wider helmet brim may stop the earmuff from engaging fully and achieving the desired level of hearing protection.

Change to Nomex® helmet neck protectors

Technical Bulletin - Change to Nomex® Helmet neck Protectors

Due to ongoing availability issues from the supplier, Pacific Helmets is changing the type of Nomex® used to make the neck protectors in select builds of structural firefighting helmet.

What does this mean for Pac Fire & our customers?
Previously Nomex® Neck Protectors were made from 260gsm plain weave fabric, effective immediately they will now be manufactured from a 200gsm Ripstop weave fabric.

The new 200gsm 100% Nomex® fabric has been tested by a third-party independent laboratory and has been found to have the excellent flame retardancy properties expected from Nomex® fabric. The Ripstop weave gives a grid pattern and enhanced tensile strength performance to the material not seen in the previous fabric.

Changes to Nomex® in selected structural firefighting helmets

What products are affected?
Select models of Pacific Helmets F10 MkV, F11 & F15 structural firefighting helmets.

Changes to the Underwater Kinetics Torch Holder Clip

Changes to the Underwater Kinetics Torch Holder Clip

In November 2019 the 3AA CPO Underwater Kinetics eLED Torch (UKT10034+) underwent design changes required to gain certification under the revised standard UL913 Edition 8.

These changes resulted in an increase in torch body width of approximately 1mm. This change in size has resulted in the B2066114 Underwater Kinetics torch clip having a firmer fit.

What does this mean for Pac Fire & our customers?
The current clip, B2066114, requires more force to fit to 3AA CPO Underwater Kinetics eLED Torches (UKT10034+) with a manufacturing date after November 2019.

To overcome this issue the torch holder has been adjusted to suit. The updated design, B2066146, will have a slightly larger cavity to accommodate the change in body size of the 3AA CPO Underwater Kinetics eLED Torch. B2066146 will be available in the coming weeks and eventually replace the current model.

The updated B2066146 will continue to fit the other torches in the Underwater Kinetics range (Red Herculite eLED Torch UKT514609-7A+ & 4AA eLED Torch UKT14506).
