Thinking ahead – Devoted to Protection
PAB Akrapovi´c is a family run company specialising in developing and manufacturing high quality protective helmets and body safety gear. It was established in 1953 and has grown considerably over the decades. The Company employ mostly local people who have diverse knowledge and skills with a focus on protective equipment.
Ivan Akrapovi´cć was a young engineer with his own vision, passion and enthusiasm for work and new discoveries. In 1953, he founded the company PAB Akrapovi´cć and dedicated himself to researching various types of plastic materials. Living in the Croatian region of Istria, where every summer fires destroy the landscape, he recognised the need and the market and soon specialised in developing and producing helmets for firefighters. That and his passion for handcrafted design led to his first helmet in 1978. Keeping in close contact with the special needs of firefighters, the COMPACTA was launched in 1997.
Performance at the highest level and competitive prices have made PAB Akrapovi´c a leader (one of the leading) in the world of professional and semi-professional firefighting. All PAB products conform to EN standards and are produced at the company’s facilities in Croatia, Europe.
The goal of the company is to ensure ultimate protection considering the highest standards, best materials and finest technology. All PAB helmets offer top performance in extreme conditions.
Fine design and high technology create the perfect combination dedicated to high performance. Superior fibreglass composites or heat resistant thermoplastic are the guarantee for the ultimate resistance to extreme temperatures and other work or rescue related conditions.
