Why is Thudguard unique?

In 1997, to make the concept of an infants safety hat work, experts said the following:

"The hat would have to be lightweight, comfortable, attractive, protective and available in one size to cover the age group of approximately 7 months to 2+ years as parents would not value having to overspend on different sizes."

One of the many reasons that Thudguard was granted its patent was because of the design eliminating the need for small, medium and large head sizing for a pre determined age group.  A child's head grows faster in the first few years than in any other time of life so Thudguard accommodates for this by stretching, or growing with the child a full 10 centimetres while still giving tested and certified impact protection.  Thudguard is the only expandable head guard in the world that can claim this making this revolutionary new product truly unique. Thudguard complies with the Department of Trade & Industry's' Personal Protective Equipment Directive, Category II.

Thudguard Keyfacts


This stretchy, comfortable design is suitable for the ages between 7 months to just over 2 years, depending on the size of the child's head, stretching from 40 to 50 centimetres or 16 to 20 inches in circumference. It is recommended to take a measurement of your child's head first to confirm the compatibility of the Thudguard sizing.


Thudguard is one of the lightest head guards in the world, weighing just less than 100 grams / 3.2 oz. This ultra lightweight design is extremely important for an infant's developing neck muscles.


Thudguard helps cushion the forehead, side and back of the head. It is made from ultra lightweight High Density Foam and medium weight, soft-spun poly / lycra. This makes it ideal for stretching and keeping the shape of the helmet allowing it to be very durable and easily kept clean.
Any device which helps to reduce the number of head injuries sustained by young children each year is most welcome
