Milwaukee Announces New Products for the Field Workforce

Jan. 16, 2024
New items include safety helmets, cooling solutions and workwear.

Tool delivers advanced slip, trip, and fall protection on the job site with the new BOLT™ Safety Helmets with IMPACT ARMOR™ Liner. Designed with RHEON™ technology, the IMPACT ARMOR™ Liner delivers oblique impact protection. The safety helmet is a part of the BOLT™ system, allowing users to secure accessories simultaneously for efficiency on the job site.

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the construction industry has the greatest number of both fatal and nonfatal traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) (CDC, 2016)," said Kyle Anderson, Senior Product Manager. "RHEON™ technology utilizes energy-absorbing polymers to reduce impact. The material is initially soft and hardens upon impact to provide ultimate protection. With this technology, IMPACT ARMOR™ delivers the best impact protection against oblique impacts, which can lead to TBIs." 

In addition to protection against top and side impacts, the BOLT™ Safety Helmets with IMPACT ARMOR™ Liner allow users to use multiple accessories at once. The construction safety helmets include a Milwaukee BOLT™ Headlamp Mount that works with most headlamps for easy, secure attachment and a BOLT™ Marker Clip that allows for easy access to pens and markers. 

The BOLT™ Safety Helmets with IMPACT ARMOR™ Liner have a comfortable padded suspension that includes an adjustable swinging ratchet for better comfort. The climbing style helmet also has a comfortable, adjustable chin strap for better security.  These safety helmets are American National Standards Institute (ANSI) type 2 and are customizable with the ability to add a company logo in up to 4 locations on the helmet. 

The BOLT™ IMPACT ARMOR™ Liner is also available separately allowing users to retrofit the liner into any Milwaukee safety helmet increasing protection and performance.  

Milwaukee Tool expands their personal protective equipment (PPE) lineup with a new Cooling category, providing solutions to help heat stress concerns on the job site. Including a skull cap, sweat bands for both safety helmets and hard hats, a safety helmet liner and two cooling towels, this new category helps users stay cool while working in sunlight or non-ventilated areas. 

Hazardous heat exposure can occur indoors or outdoors and during any season, putting millions of workers at risk for heat stress. Heat stress occurs when the body cannot effectively cool down, causing the internal body temperature to rise, which can lead to illnesses such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. To build awareness of the hazards of heat stress and how to keep users safe, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched a Heat Emphasis program in April 2022. Using cooling measures, such as Milwaukee’s new Cooling solutions, can help mitigate heat stress from hazardous heat exposure. 

The new cooling towels and BOLT™ accessories are quickly activated by running or submerging under water, achieving full absorption in only 30 seconds. When activated, the heat stress solutions wick away moisture and heat for up to four hours of cooling time, providing a natural cooling sensation as the water evaporates. Once dry, users can repeat the activation process. 

BOLT™ Cooling Skull Cap
Compatible with Milwaukee’s Safety Helmets and Hard Hats, their new Cooling Skull Cap features microfiber technology and four-way stretch material for long-lasting comfort. Part of the BOLT™ Accessory System, users can secure accessories simultaneously to their Milwaukee head protection. 

BOLT™ Safety Helmet Cooling Liner
Compatible with Milwaukee’s Safety helmets, the Safety Helmet Cooling Liner provides long-lasting comfort with its soft, comfortable padding. This liner is part of the BOLT™ Accessory System, users can secure accessories simultaneously to their Milwaukee head protection. 

BOLT™ Hard Hat Cooling Sweat Band & BOLT™ Safety Helmet Sweat Band
Specifically designed to be compatible with either Milwaukee’s Hard Hats or Safety Helmets, the two Cooling Sweat Bands feature soft, comfortable padding for long-lasting comfort. Both sweat bands are part of the BOLT™ Accessory System, allowing users to secure accessories simultaneously to their Milwaukee head protection. 

Microfiber Cooling Towel & PVA Cooling Towel
Milwaukee’s Microfiber Cooling Towel is designed to be worn both indoors and outdoors to keep cool on the jobsite. For added protection, both the Microfiber Cooling Towel and PVA Cooling Towel feature a UPF 50+ rating to block harmful UV rays. 


Milwaukee Tool continues their dedication to solving frustrations in comfort, movement and protection from the elements with two new additions to their workwear collections; WORKSKIN™ and FREEFLEX™.
