The first laboratory, certified by the Italian Ministry of Transport, verifies the satisfying and exceeding of requirements set by current national and international regulations, in line with internal standards. Crash tests, tests on retention systems and helmet loss tests are carried out on helmets, while the visors are subject to optical and resistance tests. The second laboratory carries out supplementary functional tests, which are not required by regulations, on finished products and on the various components, both in the development stage and in daily production, carried out through the taking of samples. Overall, the aforementioned activity results in the testing of approximately 5,000 helmets every year.
Thanks to the attention and care to production, the Nolangroup S.p.A. plants have been awarded ISO 9001:2015 and SG (CPSA Japan) certification, the quality management system for companies: this entails constant improvement of the different production stages, from product design to its development, production and sale.
All models shown in this catalogue comply with the international UN/ECE 22-05 and UN/ECE 22-06 standard and therefore carry the homologation label on the chin strap.
“Flip-up” and “hybrid” type helmets guarantee maximum protection with the chin guard closed or installed, partial protection with the chin guard raised or removed. All Nolangroup products of both types have P/J homologation and, for the chin guard area, they pass the tests provided for by UN/ECE regulations for full-face helmets. With regards to “hybrid” type helmets, as well as the tests required for by regulations in force, Nolangroup also checks the characteristics of mechanical resistance of the chin guard through a protocol of additional endurance tests.
In response to specic requirements, the following homologations are also available:
Nolangroup proudly underlines that all of its products - Nolan, X-lite and Grex - tested by SHARP, the prominent independent test system run by the British Government, have obtained at least 4 stars. Furthermore, all of the “flip-up” helmets have received the highest possible rating in terms of chin guard latch reliability. This means that, for each of the products tested by SHARP, the chin guard remains completely closed during each of the 30 impacts.
