Title
(EN) PROTECTIVE HELMET EQUIPPED WITH VISOR WITH LC LAYER AND THERMOFORMED LENS
(FR) CASQUE DE PROTECTION ÉQUIPÉ D'UNE VISIÈRE À COUCHE LC ET LENTILLE THERMOFORMÉE
Abstract
(EN) A protective helmet (1) for practicing sports activities or using motorized vehicles according to the present invention comprises a cap (2) provided with a front opening (23), in the region of the user's eye, closed by a visor assembly (3). Said visor assembly (3) comprises: at least one at least partially transparent structural lens (41), said structural lens (41) being a thermoformed sheet of polymer material; a Guest-Host type liquid crystal LC film (43) adapted to modify its own transparency level, arranged behind the structural lens (41); at least one electrical source for powering the LC film (43).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un casque de protection (1) pour pratiquer des activités sportives ou utiliser des véhicules motorisés comprenant un casque (2) pourvu d'une ouverture avant (23), dans la région des yeux de l'utilisateur, fermée par un ensemble visière (3). Ledit ensemble visière (3) comprend : au moins une lentille structurale au moins partiellement transparente (41), ladite lentille structurale (41) étant une feuille thermoformée de matériau polymère; un film LC à cristaux liquides de type hôte-invité (43) adapté pour modifier son propre niveau de transparence, disposé derrière la lentille structurale (41); au moins une source électrique pour alimenter le film LC (43).
