Bulletin Type: 
Caution Bulletin
Bulletin Subject: 
USE OF AFTER MARKET OR NON-GENUINE KIRBY MORGAN® PARTS
Body: 

The purpose of this bulletin is to CAUTION against using non-genuine Kirby Morgan parts. Kirby Morgan equipment has been designed, built, and tested to exacting specifications for proper fit form and function and your safety! All components of Kirby Morgan® Helmets and BandMasks® are CR and CE compliant.

Be aware that even something as “simple” as a Kirby Morgan® Head Cushion has undergone stringent testing in order to gain CE approval (very expensive) so that it can be sold in CE countries. The head cushion has also gone through trials, analysis, and evaluation for CR compliance and military approval. (Ref. p/n 510-754 & 510-521 Head cushions).

A cheaper, un-tested, NON-GENUINE Head Cushion can present the danger of foam that could off-gas toxic fumes or exude toxic liquids if wet!

Kirby Morgan® carefully sources the foam we use from special vendors to be sure there is no possibility of off-gassing or toxicity within the foam or other materials. This is just one example. Again, all components of Kirby Morgan® Helmets and BandMasks® are CR and CE compliant.

After-market products are not CR or CE marked and use of these products will void warranty plus, helmets and BandMasks® with non-genuine parts will not pass inspection.
