Although Arbin already had a big sales hit with their sandblasting helmets, the in-house SMC (sheet moulding compound) production line was non sustainable and the design was aging. Promea redesigned the new helmet for recyclable polyamide for injection moulding. The helmet is sculpted in a way to enable rubber dip moulding and to optimize the integration of the air inlet channel and the flat glass front screen. The Commander is equipped with an early warning system for fresh air supply. The quick release fittings of the front window enables the user to rapidly swop the disposable glass and the gauze. Despite of the extremely harsh conditions of use Arbin’s new heavy duty product proved easily to withstand its reality checks and largely surpassed the sales of its predecessor.
