The Pacific R6 rescue helmet range represents the most versatile and configurable helmet of its type available and offers the most up-to-date form of head protection in a very comfortable, lightweight and wearable package.

Composite Shells

Manufactured using a Kevlar® reinforced composite shell, R6 helmets provide the perfect combination of safety, balance and wearer comfort. Options such as adjustable air vents, neck protectors and goggle straps mean that your helmet can be designed to be as versatile as your job is varied.

Use of fibre-reinforced materials means that our helmets have less mass than those manufactured from thermoplastics. A lightweight helmet ensures all users can concentrate on their job rather than neck ache.

R6 Helmets have the same flammability rating as firefighting helmets, plastic helmets do not. Our composite shells are totally UV resistant and there is no need to put a limit for useful service like the plastic shells. A plastic shell will typically last for around 2-3 years and have to be removed from active service after this time for fear of structural degradation by UV radiation.

Our shells are also chemically inert and are coated with an acrylic-urethane paint that is very hard wearing and very resistant against a wide range of chemicals. The helmets therefore retain their shine and still look brand new after several years of service.


Whilst most ‘rescue’ helmets have holes in them, we can select whether to have the vent open or closed or to specify no vent at all. This has advantages if there are contaminants falling from above or during heavy rain or snow. If preferred, the R6 can be offered with no vents in which case it will conform to EN 16471:2014 and EN 16473:2014, making it suitable for both Wildland Firefighting and Technical Rescue. With the vents, the helmet conforms to EN 16473:2014 – Technical Rescue. The R6 can be offered with bung holes at the rear which is a requirement for conformity to the EN 12492 mountaineering standard.
