#BullardBlast: 85 Years in Blasting

Bullard expertise in blast PPE goes way back. In fact, our company invented the hard hat in 1919. When we developed the original supplied air respirator and blast helmet for the workers sandblasting steel during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge soon afterward, we used our head protection expertise to provide steelworkers with the best design.

Since then, we’ve continuously researched, developed, produced, and improved head protection and respiratory PPE for abrasive blasters all over the world. Our credentials span decades, continents, and a wide variety of jobsites, including:

Invention of the hard hat in 1919
Development of respirators for Golden Gate Bridge sandblasters in the 1930s
Improvement of blasting helmets for today’s tough conditions
Testing and evaluation of helmets in our state-of-the-art lab
Staying in tune with the needs of front-line blast operators today through on-the-ground sales managers and distributors worldwide
