St. Paul, Minn. (May 21, 2014) – Ergodyne has announced today two enhancements to the popular Skullerz® Head Protection Line, including a 30mm “micro-brim” option on the Skullerz® 8950 Bump Cap and new hi-vis lime color option on both the 8950 and the 8960 Bump Cap w/ LED Lighting Technology. The new super-short brim (in addition to the current short 50mm and long 80mm brim lengths) provides maximum visibility and field of vision for workers in tight spaces. The hi-vis color addition (in addition to the current black and navy) provides higher visibility of workers for enhanced conspicuity.

For workzones that do not require a hard hat but still have overhead hazards, these Bump Caps provide head protection from worker-generated bumps, bruises, and cuts without the additional height and bulk of a traditional hard hat. Available with or without in-brim LED lights for hands-free workspace illumination, the Skullerz® line of Bump Caps has quickly become the choice in specialty head protection.

Ideal for workers in confined spaces with risk of injuring their head, the Skullerz® 8950 Bump Cap micro-brim and hi-vis and lime option are available now while the 8960 hi-vis lime option will be available June 2014 at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
