HGU-56/P HELICOPTER HELMET

The Gentex HGU-56/P helmet comes standard with both clear and

neutral visors. For particularly demanding mission requirements, laser

visors, high contrast and gradient visors are available from to improve

visual acuity in day, night or inclement weather conditions. All type of

visors are made of polycarbonate and meet all performance requirements

of MIL-V-43511 and have an abrasion-resistant coating on the front

and back surfaces in accordance with MIL-C-83409. The outer

visor housing can also easily be configured for Night Vision Goggles (NVG).


The HGU-56/P can also be upgraded to include the Maxillofacial Shield

(MFS), specifically designed to protect the lower face from flying debris

common to the helicopter environment. An optional helmet bag

for proper storage and protection is available. Oxygen mask bayonets

can also be ordered for field installation, so the MBU 12/P Oxygen

mask can be donned in high-altitude environments.


HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Aircrew Ballistic Helmet (ABH) System provides

the identical form, fit and function of the standard HGU-56/P Rotary

Wing Aircrew Helmet, with 100% greater ballistic protection. Innovative

materials and processes have been adopted to provide unprecedented

ballistic and impact protection. Until the HGU-56/P,conventional

helmet construction materials limited the ability to produce a single

design that offers impact and ballistic protection in a lightweight design.


All HGU-56/P rotary wing helmets can be readily modified to

install the Communication Ear Plug (CEP), which is now standard

on all U.S. Army flight helmets and which greatly enhances communications

and hearing protection.


The helmet is supplied in various sizes standard with CEP, NVG provision,

Helmet Bag and comes only in O.D color. US Export License fees apply for

Our helmet is tested in accordance with ANSI Z90.1-1979. Impact testing is accomplished at high and ambient temperature only and headform deceleration is limited to 150G in the crown and 175G in the headband area. Lateral impact in the earcup area does not exceed 150G with a drop velocity of 6.0 m/sec, and combined with crushable earcups significantly improves impact protection levels. When tested in accordance with ANSI Z90.1b-1979 using a 1950 Newton tension equivalent (440 ft lb) load for two minutes, the chinstrap does not elongate more than 3.8 cm from the preload of 110 Newton. The chin strap features both D-ring and snap fasteners to ensure rapid removal in the event of an emergency, and our patented “British Buckle” is available for commercial customers.
We do not supply the HGU-56/P in other colors but only O.D. however we can offer the SPH-4B helmet in a variety of custom colors .
HGU-56/P Helmet accessories and product support are available only to those customers who orderd equipment from us .The helmets comes standard equipped with CEP and NVG platform.
