Original title Cascos de protecciˇn [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information Oct.-Dec. 1973, No.51, p.8-10. Illus.
Abstract Description of tests of safety helmets (impact strength, shock absorption, penetration resistance, breaking strength) and results obtained on 3 types of helmets: aluminium, rigid polyvinyl chloride and polycarbonate. The polycarbonate headgear has the disadvantage of being considerably heavier, but otherwise it was greatly superior to the 2 other models from every point of view; the article recommends its widespread use in the iron and steel industry.
