PGD-ARCH helmet | ballistic helmet
The ARCH helmet is constructed with high-performance Kevlar aramid fiber from Dupont, making it a popular choice among professional military and police units worldwide.
PGD prides them selves on producing only top-quality helmets that are 100% made in Europe. Our priority is your safety, and they believe in providing you with a helmet that you can trust to do its job effectively, every time.
Their bulletproof helmet is designed to be adaptable to your specific needs.
The front shroud is compatible with Wilcox G24 and similar mounts and our rails are compatible with the following headset adapters: 3m Peltor, Sordin, Ops-core AMP arms, Earmor, and Unity Tactical MARK 2.0, you can mount additional equipment to the helmet Velcro and rail system, as it is designed to follow the industry standard for picatinny rails.
PGD understands that choosing a helmet is not a decision to be taken lightly, which is why they stand behind their product with complete confidence. You can trust the ARCH helmet to provide you with the highest level of protection and performance, no matter what your needs may be.
The ARCH helmet weighs only M(1.30 kg), L(1.35 kg), XL(1.39 kg) for the complete helmet. This makes this bulletproof helmet, one of the lightest aramid bulletproof helmets on the market. The superior weight-to-protection ratio allows for a greater mobility during use.
Moreover, they have applied a layer of polyrea spray paint around the entirety of the helmet increases its durability and resistance to environmental factors such as rain, oil, and similar liquids. The helmet's ballistic properties and paint will not fade over time, ensuring long-lasting protection for the wearer.
A high cut helmet with memory foam and BOA Fit
PGD ARCH helmet is a high cut helmet that provides space to wear hearing protection or communication equipment without compromising on functionality.
The helmet can be easily adjusted to your needs. It shapes to your head in 2-3 seconds and feels like a "flying" helmet because it fits snugly without feeling tight. This is achieved through the implementation of PGD's proprietary PGD-10 pad memory foam technology, which delivers outstanding comfort while simultaneously reducing the impact of blunt force trauma.
The PGD-10 pad memory foam technology is specially designed to reduce the impact of blunt force trauma from shots while also providing unbeatable comfort. Originally developed by NASA to protect against impacts, PGD's memory foam technology is second to none.
Moreover, the foam is easily replaceable and can be attached using velcro, making maintenance easy.
The ARCH helmet also comes with our PGD buckle system, which uses high-quality materials from BOA, ITW Nexus and Duraflex.
The BOA Fit buckle system fastens the helmet to the head and can be quickly adjusted via the rotary knob. BOA provides a perfomance fit at the highest possible level!
In addition the retention system is adjusted with the 4 Duraflex plastic buckles so that they have the correct length for your head.
Bulletproof, ballistic Kevlar helmet.
The ARCH helmet is made From Kevlar Aramid from Dupont. Dupont is one of the world's leading manufacturers of Aramid fiber.
PGD uses a unique propriority prepreq lamination process that allows us to make a bulletproof helmet that is extremely durable, with a low weight compared to ballisitic threats that the helmet stops.
The ARCH is tested according to NIJ 0106.01 against ballistic threats from NIJ std 0101.08 and NIJ std 0101.06, making it possible to stop up to a .44 magnum, .357 SIG and 9 mm FMJ
In addition, the V50 helmet has been tested up to 660-680 M/S against fragments and shrapnel (17 grains) according to STANAG2920, which is the NATO standard for testing of bulletproof materials.
When a bulletproof helmet stops a projectile or fragment, a standard helmet is affected in a 130mm area around the impact, which is also called Blunt force trauma.
The ARCH ballistic helmet is only affected in an area up to 75 mm. around the impact. This feature significantly mitigates the level of blunt force trauma experienced by the wearer, reducing the degree to which the helmet deforms and increasing its ability to absorb the bullet impact.
An ARCH helmet reduces the depth by up to 50% (according to HPW-TP-0401.01B IIIA), where the trauma is on average 11.2 mm against a 9 mm. It provides significantly greater safety and the chance of surviving the trauma from a gunshot is greater.
