Bullard was first started in 1898 in San Francisco by Edward Dickinson Bullard, a supplier of mining equipment and the brand rose to fame in 1919 after his son, E.W Bullard returned home from the war and invented the world’s first hard hat. 

Since then, Bullard has gone to expand its range of safety equipment and as an ode to a century of the hard hat, created the Cen10 Helmet. Made with style, comfort and safety in mind, the helmet that’s made from a blend of chemical-resistant plastic boasts innovative 3-layers protection with inner foam and padding.
