ERB Glo-Mega® Omega II® Safety Helmet is a unique take on hard hats. Designed to keep workers safe in any environment, ERB safety helmets come with a glow-in-the-dark feature that makes it easy to spot personnel in dimly lit areas or unsafe environments. ERB helmets are made with a special high density plastic that is resistant to scratching and offer increased impact protection. The visor can be adjusted and the chin strap ensures the helmet stays put regardless of activity. ERB Safety Helmets provide an added layer of protection and help ensure the safety of those who wear them.

Glow-in-the-Dark head protection great for the mining industry,
ship yards, underground utilities, and night highway construction.

Q: What causes the Glo-Mega to glow?
A: The glow is caused by photoluminescence, commonly referred to as glow-in-the-dark. The materials used in the Glo-Mega are nothing at all like the glow-in-the-dark materials of several years ago. They charge quickly and glow much brighter and much longer than the glow-in-the-dark items you may remember having as a child.
Q: How long does it take to charge the Glo-Mega?
A: Charging for 10 to 20 minutes in sunlight would be excellent to produce a strong long lasting glow. A half hour in bright fluorescent light would be very good. Even 20 minutes near a 40 watt incandescent bulb will generate a significant glow.
Q: How brightly does the Glo-Mega glow?
A: In intermediate levels of lighting, the Glo-Mega takes on a greenish color as the glow competes with the light from its surroundings. In dark conditions, the Glo-Mega’s glow has been measured at 1220 mcd/m2 immediately after charging and, after ten minutes was still 45 times as bright as required by ASTM 2073 for emergency signage.
Q: How long can the glow be seen?
A: To eyes accustomed to the dark, the glow can be seen for several days or even weeks after a suitable charge.
Q: How does the after-glow of the Glo-Mega fade?
A: The fading begins as soon as the source of charging is removed - faster at first, then slowing over a long period of time. For a number of hours, this fading is partially offset by a dramatic increase in the sensitivity of the eye to see light.
Q: What is the useful life of the product?
A: The Glo-Mega has the normal life span of a molded polyethylene safety helmet. The photo luminescent properties however, should last almost indefinitely.
