HARD SHELL IS A SPECIALIZED MANUFACTURER OF BALLISTIC HELMETS.
As a specialized manufacturer and supplier of ballistic helmets, we at Hardshell protect soldiers and law enforcement officers from bullets and fragments.
Helmets are an inseparable component of comprehensive safety even though they are the most overlooked accessories in everyday civilian life. The ballistic helmets that we manufacture protect the wearers not only from explosive shrapnel and debris but also from handgun ammunition.
Any personnel who need to enter such a life-threatening zone must put on ballistic helmets.
Because of their lighter weight, these helmets are also utilized for training in most militaries and various sports. Apart from bulletproof helmets, tactical gear might also contain protective bump helmets that protect against knocks, bumps, and falls.
The designing of a ballistic helmet is a very complex and intriguing process that calls for minute attention and detailing in various areas.
Yarn to Fabric
The process of yarn to fabric involves warping and weaving of aramid yarn to fabric.
Making use of Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthene (UHMWPE), different types of fibres are practised in the making of ballistic helmets.
According to the design and exacting customer requirements, the impregnated fabric is cut and layered in sync with a predetermined layup sequence, and all this is known as a pre-compressed lay-up.
The pre-compressed layup is moulded into a helmet shell under high temp and pressure
Component Assembly and QC
Finishing and assembly form one of the core parts of ballistic helmet manufacturing at Hardshell.
