Next-level worker safety

A low-friction layer for hard hats.
Rotational movement for harness helmets in angled impacts.

Traditional helmets are designed and tested for straight impacts, but most impacts are angled, which can cause rotational motion to the head.

The rotational motion can
cause brain injuries.

The Low Friction Layer is intended to help reduce the rotational motion to the head in certain angled impacts.

How it works:

The Mips® Elevate Core system brings Mips technology to industry and construction sites. An injection-molded low-friction layer, with comfortable padding on the inside, is attached to the helmet using the rear harness straps and front padding. This lets the low-friction layer move inside the helmet to help minimize rotational motion to the head in angled impacts.

Where it’s used:

Hard hats were initially developed to protect against falling objects and are now used for workplace safety throughout the construction industry and many other workplaces. The Mips® Elevate Core is a patented solution intended to help reduce rotational motion to the head in specific impacts. This universal system is designed for harness-type safety helmets and fits most helmet designs and sizes.

Why Mips® Elevate Core

When a helmet is impacted at an angle, it can cause the head to rotate suddenly and violently. This is a common source of concussions and brain injury.

The Mips® Elevate Core is a system designed to provide movement inside the helmet to help reduce rotational motion to the head in certain angled impacts, thereby lowering the risk of such injuries. The system is specifically developed to work with harness-type safety helmets. It’s comfortable and provides generous ventilation inside the helmet.

  • Added workplace safety in many accidents.

  • Replaceable comfort padding.

  • Ventilated and great comfort.

  • Designed to divert rotational motion.

The principle of the safety system

The Mips® safety system is designed to provide added safety for helmets in many accidents. For certain impacts, the Mips system can reduce harmful forces that might otherwise be transferred to the user’s head.
