LTX Helmet

Lightweight. Heavy Duty.

LT Series fire helmets are designed Bullard Tough for extreme conditions. The tough shell, lightweight and compact design have been reengineered to offer even more headroom and comfort – making it the most comfortable low profile helmet on the market.

Tough and durable

The outer shell of the LT is made of the same high-heat Ultem® thermoplastic used in Bullard PX fire helmets and thermal imagers. This thermoplastic provides unparalleled impact and penetration resistance. The revolutionary patented nylon impact cap performs like a traditional impact cap, helping protect against falling objects and heat rise, while offering a sleek, easy to clean surface.

NFPA approved

The LT Fire Helmet exceeds the NFPA 1971, Standard on Protective Ensemble for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting, 2013 Edition Pertaining to Structural Fire Helmets.

Quick, easy sizing

The LT is designed for exceptional balance, comfort, stability and interface with respiratory equipment. The Bullard Sure-Lock® ratchet headband offers both a quick-turning sizing knob and a unique three position height adjuster to create a completely personalized fit. The LT helmet is equipped standard with a leather ratchet cover.

Eye protection made easy

Bullard LT Series helmets come standard with the innovative Quick-Attach Blade system. This system permits the wearer to instantly press on or off either a blade-mounted face shield or blade-mounted goggles. This flexibility gives the firefighter the advantage of the right option for the right application without time consuming component changes. The LT comes standard with 4” face shield. ESS FirePro and Inner Zone goggles available for additional charge.

Cost-effective Maintenance

LT helmets are designed from the start to make maintenance easy and cost-effective. Fewer components and one of the lowest total costs of ownership in the industry will truly make your LT helmet a long-term investment. Plus, special mold-formed face shields mean less stress cracking and longer lasting face shields.

Engineered for comfort and protection

The Bullard patented M-PACT Shell with SmartRidge design provides thermal and impact protection while offering more headroom for a comfortable fit.

Integrated helmet lighting available

The LT Fire Helmet is available with Bullard TrakLite® helmet lighting. Featuring multiple forward-facing, long lasting, bright LED lights, TrakLite is integrated into the helmet design for excellent weight balance and illumination. Added safety features include the rear buddy indicator light, long battery life (uses four AAA batteries) and easy on/off operation.

A custom fit

All Bullard fire helmets are equipped with the U-Fit System, offering 12 custom comfort settings. By engineering our helmets to include 12 points of adjustment, you can adjust the ride and balance of your helmet. It’s like having a custom-fitted helmet, designed just for you.
