Masuri cricket helmets are subject to impact-absorption testing to establish standards of safety in construction that provides cricketers at every level of the game with world-class levels of protection.
The helmet shell is created using the latest injection moulded polymers. The liner is made from energy-absorbing expanded polystyrene (EPS) which is extremely light and enhances a comfortable fit for the wearer.
The EPS is specifically formulated by Masuri to a density that maximises the impact absorption capabilities of every helmet.
The helmet faceguard is made of either certified titanium or certified high-grade steel.
The British Standard requires the 15J test – which is approximately the speed of a ball delivered by a junior bowler - to return an impact reading of
LESS THAN 250g
In two 15J tests, the helmet returned readings of
54.2g and 58.9g
making it nearly five times more effective than the standard required.
In two 30J tests – which is approximately the speed of a ball delivered by an adult cricketer – the helmet returned readings of
96.8g and 127.5g
in the region of 50 per cent more effective than the standard required.
All Masuri helmets are fully compliant with:
British Safety Standard BS 7928:2013
The tests were carried out by INSPEC International Limited, a leading independent organisation for the testing and certification of personal protective equipment www.inspec-international.com
