Helmet lighting has never been more convenient or better suited to so many situations. The Bullard TrakLite™ LED Helmet Lighting System is smoothly integrated into the structure of the helmet to provide safe, dependable, thoroughly functional lighting for a wide range of daily applications.
There's no need to attach a cumbersome bracket and heavy light to the brim of your helmet, or leave a useful tool behind to carry a hand-held flashlight. The TrakLite features eight bright, durable dome-style LEDs protected behind a heat-resistant glass, and designed to cast a smooth, evenly-distributed 38 lumens of white light over a very wide area. No blinding hot spots, dark circles, or sharp cut-off—just the diffused area lighting you need to safely navigate in dark areas, indoors or out.
It's ideal for search and rescue, working with tools, locating a fuse box, or taking decisive action at an accident scene. With its tough, lightweight, waterproof, battery pack mounted beneath the rear brim of the helmet, TrakLite provides a safe, reliable source of light that's snag-proof, perfectly balanced, and always available.
See and be seen.
In addition to the eight forward-facing LEDs, TrakLite has a bright blue, “buddy indicator" light mounted on the battery box at rear of the helmet. This bright, extremely visible tail light makes it far easier for those behind to track the wearer, even in smoky and very low visibility situations.
Simple, efficient, so easy to use. Even with a thickly gloved hand, this system is a snap to operate. Just a flick of the single rotary switch turns on both the front LEDs and the rear buddy indicator light. The energy efficient TrakLite is conveniently powered by four standard AAA alkaline batteries. Each set of inexpensive, disposable batteries provides at least six hours of continuous runtime, to a minimum 50% brightness. Batteries can be quickly and easily replaced in the field with just a Phillips head screwdriver.
Engineered for reliable performance—with safety first. Unlike other fire helmet lights, the weight of TrakLite is perfectly centered from side-to-side, and distributed between the front and rear of the helmet to offer a more balanced lighting solution. With no protruding attachments, external clips, brackets, or wires, Bullard TrakLite reduces the likelihood of weight imbalance, or becoming snagged on obstructions or gear.
When properly closed its virtually unbreakable Ultrem battery pack, lighting unit, and all connections are a completely waterproof, chemical-resistant sealed system, for use in volatile environments and hazmat situations.
You can count on your Bullard TrakLite-equipped helmet to provide increased safety and additional utility over most traditional helmet-mounted lighting. Plus it's an excellent compliment to a more highly focused smoke-cutting hand-held fire flashlight or lantern.
