IMPORTANT READ THIS BELOW BEFORE ORDERING
Individual cavers do not have to comply with a specific standards to the best of our and other suppliers knowledge. Personal choice is the key factor regarding fitness for purpose in an underground environment. Two holes need to be drilled to mount the lamp bracket, two holes to the rear to thread the battery holding strap. Do not assume that a climbing standard CE marked EN 12492 means that the helmet is approved for caving. UIAA standards were developed for mountaineering , not for caving. The drilling holes into a helmet technically invalidates its certification as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Providing the holes are drilled sensibly (e.g. not too close to the edge of a helmet, not too large)- then there is unlikely to be any adverse effect on the overall strength and consequently protection offered, but clearly this cannot and is not guaranteed by any helmet manufacturer. So if you choose to modify a helmet to this speleo purpose then you must be aware before you proceed, and fully accept any potential risk that ensues.
