Custom Leather Fire Helmet Shields Fronts and Radio Straps
Our fire helmet shields are heavy duty and well suited for interior firefighting. These custom leather shields are durable, water resistant, and can be made in any size and shape. Please browse our site and look at pictures of some of our completed work. We'd be happy to make a custom fire helmet shield or radio strap for you! Feel free to contact us with any questions.
The fronts look best on a leather New Yorker or Sam Houston, but will fit other makes and non leather helmets. Helmet shields are cut from a large sheet of 13 - 14 oz heavy leather then the shield is cut in desired shape. The front is carved (tooled, embossed) based on the chosen design, dyed, then stitched to a 4 - 5 oz leather back with 100% cotton thread. Then final color is added, and they are sealed for protection. The helmet shields are about 1/4 inch thick, give or take. Give me an idea, or send me a logo, and I'll do the rest. In the picture below, you can see a logo sent by a customer on the far left. I added color, and sent it back for approval (middle picture). The completed helmet shield is on the end.
$100 for shields with custom designs, $70 for basic (Just a number and name). Price includes delivery to lower 48. I'll ship anywhere in the world, but you'll have to pay the actual fee. There are no handling fees, just the actual postage.
