Sheffield-based product consultancy AME has created a fire helmet for Modular Helmet Systems, which should appear on the market in April 2003. Designed by AME industrial designer Andy Rosie, the headpiece is injection-moulded with snap-together parts that allow for three configurations. One option offers venting for air flow in a bid to overcome the risk of heat exhaustion, which is often prevalent with full shell helmets. However, AME’s model can also be configured as a full shell in order to provide side and rear impact protection. AME claims the ability to replace damaged components increases the longevity of the design.
