The country's leading helmet manufacturer Steelbird has announced that it has become the first helmet company in India to get the license to manufacture ISI-certified visors for helmets.
Commenting on the development, Rajeev Kapur, MD, Steelbird said “Just the way, there are two kinds of helmets, ISI and non-ISI, the same is the case with the visors. As per IS:9973 Steelbird will be not manufacturing non-ISI visors going forward. A helmet visor is an essential component which offers a clear on-road visibility, but usually in low quality helmets, the visors gets scratches during regular use, leading to visibility hindrance. Thus, Steelbird offers Polycarbonate visors with anti-scratch coating which are more durable and offer greater protection.”
Steelbird says with a strong focus on R&D and manufacturing of products that meet the safety concerns of the riders it has already made a move in the direction. The audit has been conducted on its products and Steelbird is now certified to make helmets and visors both under the ISI standards.
