With our specialist background in injection moulded components, we supply Ireland's largest sportswear provider with safety-approved GAA hurling helmets.
Being in partnership with O'Neills sportswear for over a decade, we assist in the helmets' design, tooling, prototyping and overall production. Our team worked tirelessly to ensure we were in keeping with the safety standards set by NSAI IS 355 (2006), creating an over-moulded cased that ensured wearer durability, comfort, and safety.
With our on-site digitally-controlled machines, we produce hundreds of thousands components weekly in various sizes and colours.
Hurling is one of the fastest field games in the world, played with a stick made from ash and hard leather coated ball. The helmet is required to protect players from striking with stick or the ball, struck at speeds of 100mph.
Here at Crossen engineering we worked closely with the design team from O’Neills. We provided the initial design and manufacturing expertise and we had significant input on the materials, construction and manufacture of the product.
