ProtectaCap+Plus® absorbs about 90% of impact energy. That’s more than 4 times more impact absorption, 400% safer than the vinyl-covered and leather helmets.  ProtectaCap+Plus® has a patented, dual-protective core that is so sturdy and dependable, that it can last for years. ProtectaCap+Plus® is unbreakable, cannot crack or be picked apart like the vinyl dipped helmets. And there’s no need to replace it after a fall or impact like plastic helmets.

Plum’s® ProtectaCap+Plus® protective headgear is fully encased in comfortable, breathable cotton stretch twill, putting cotton next to your head, not plastic, vinyl, leather or foam. ProtectaCap+Plus® provides a patented secure, ergonomic fit that will stay put and not slide around on your head. And it’s virtually weightless!

Its patented protective core will not absorb water so ProtectaCap+Plus® is ideal for snow sports and safety near the pool. Plum’s® Plus Pockets™ Covers are removable covers that fully encase ProtectaCap+Plus®.  Plus Pockets™ are easily removed for washing and drying for anti-microbial safety.  And for cost-effective long-term use, Plum’s® Plus Pockets™ are sold separately., so you can count on dependable, cost-effective safety.

Plum's® ProtectaCap® & ProtectaCap+Plus® Fall Protection Helmets have Proven Impact Absorption

ASTM IMPACT ABSORPTION Less is More! The Lower the Number, the Greater the Protection

Compare Plum’s® GMax to the Vinyl-Dipped Helmets: Plum’s range from 141.50 all the way down to 65. Vinyl-dipped helmets test as high as 288.50. That’s how much more impact energy is reaching the head. A Peak G [Gravity] Number Above 200 is Dangerous.

Plum’s® ProtectaCap® and ProtectaCap+Plus® protective headgear eliminate these problems:

  • No danger of head rash. Plum’s® protective helmets are hypo-allergenic, latex-free, vinyl- free, fully encased in cotton and cotton-blend fabrics and fully machine-washable. Some vinyl is dangerous for children and has been eliminated in the making of their lunch boxes. Plastic, leather and vinyl helmets can cause cradle cap and eczema and cannot be machine washed for optimal hygiene.
  • No danger of causing a fall due to sliding around, poor fit or heavy shifting weight. Plum’s protective headgear provides a secure, virtually weightless custom fit for all irregular head shapes and sizes. Plum’s lightweight helmets stay put and are ideal for weak neck muscles, balance disorders, the elderly and for children, whose large center of gravity is the head.
  • No danger of breakage. Plum’s® protective helmets are unbreakable for dependability and unsurpassed customer satisfaction– for over 20 years.
Forgive my writing…. I just wanted to let the staff know you were extremely helpful in choosing the right helmet. I was about to get out of the wheelchair when I had a seizure with no warning. I am told that if I had not had the ProtectaCap+Plus® on, it would have been very serious because I hit the marble floor just above my forehead. It was the first time I hit my head this way. Plus I go to a clinic for chemical sensitivity/environmental illness and that I could tolerate the helmet says a lot. Thank you very much. My doctor says you just saved my life because they didn’t think my skull could survive any more hits. Thank you again.

Nicole’s ProtectaCap+Plus®, is just beautiful. It’s so comfortable and so lightweight. And it does indeed work very well. Nicole has had several drop seizures since she’s been wearing it, and has had no injury to her head whatsoever. Additionally, it looks so much better than the old heavy foam rubber helmet she was wearing.

ProtectaCap+Plus® has been perfect for my daughter, Pam. It’s lightweight and wonderful. She wears it all the time when she works as a volunteer, and for Special Olympics in soccer, basketball, and track.
