A highly certified figure skating helmet

 

Polyform has designed, produced and assembled, in collaboration with Protections Kocask Inc., figure skating helmets that meet high standards requirements.

CUSTOMER’S CHALLENGE

This Canadian company developing figure skating protective gear wanted to tackle a new challenge. The owners were working on a new helmet concept for figure skating. The idea was to put on market something more attractive than traditional hockey helmets. On the other hand, they needed to meet specific standards established for Ice Hockey Helmets.

POLYFORM’S SOLUTION

Polyform has found all components required to manufacture and assemble such a product. Our expertise in helmet production for many sports has allowed us to get almost all components in Canada. After some design changes, we managed to come up with helmets meetings all requirements. The resultat needed to be very shock-resistant. That’s why we designed them in expanded polypropylene (EPP), a material recognized for its impact resistance.

RESULTS

Our team found the winning solution and was able to provide a finished product meeting all required standards. These helmets are now at many sport stores, including Patinage Plus in Laval, QC.
