Professional Riding Hats from Gatehouse
Our expertise has been at the forefront of development over the years, producing riding headwear that is non-bulky, lightweight, comfortable and competitively priced. Your safety is our priority. We have pioneered some major changes in headwear safety in recent years and are proud to be recognised by the British Standards Institute for consistency and high levels of test results. The extensive range means there will be a hat which will suit your needs whether you are having fun or competing at the highest level.
The riding helmet range includes the HS1 jockey skull which is the only helmet in the UK to pass both British Standard Institute tests as well as Snell E2001. Snell E2001 is the highest manufactured equestrian safety standard in the world and includes a test that simulates a rider falling into a fence rail, or having a secondary hit by a horse’s hoof.
Our riding helmet range has styles and standards to suit all tastes and budgets and covers all different riding disciplines. We now offer the option of added 'bling' on both the F.1 showjumping and Hickstead velvet hats.
Quality Cycle Helmets from Design Headwear
Our new cycling helmet is an exciting venture for us. It has a 360° LED light that is fully in-moulded. The light can be flashing, static or off and is ideal for cycling in the dark or poor light conditions. It is very stylish, well ventilated and has a dial adjustable fit for total comfort.
Rider safety is paramount in our thoughts during all stages of development from initial design concepts through to final testing. We work very closely with both British Standards and the HPE test laboratory in Surrey to ensure that nothing is overlooked.
Design Headwear Ltd manufactures the Gatehouse Range of Riding Hats and the new DHW 360° LED cycle helmet. We have been manufacturing riding hats for 16 years and Bill Vero, the Technical Director has been making helmets all his life, following on from his father. Please contact us if you would like any further information about any of the products in our ranges.
