Argus Helmet Protection in Latvia

The Latvian Ministry of the Interior have selected the Argus 017T public order helmet for use by their police anti riot units. With support from our regional distributor Baltic Armaments, and following an evaluation programme of competing manufacturer's helmets, an order was placed for 400 Argus police helmets, which have now been delivered

The Argus 017T public order helmet which is used by the majority of UK police forces is approved to the UK Police BSI PAS 017 Standard and also carries European CE certification. BSI PAS 017 establishes a stringent series of tests that prove the riot helmet’s capability to protect the wearer from impact, chemicals and flammable liquids, as well as providing optical clarity and good field of vision. An acoustic test is also carried out to ensure that the public order helmet does not prevent the wearer from hearing external sounds and instructions.  

The riot helmet shell is made from fire retardant ABS thermoplastic material with a high density polystyrene impact liner, and is fitted with a high impact optical grade polycarbonate face shield, and heavy-duty neck curtain.
