Petzl to Debut New High Performance DUO Headlamps at FDIC International 2018

All-new line of professional headlamps offers increased function, durability and brightness

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (April 4, 2018) — Petzl, the leader in professional verticality and lighting equipment, will showcase the new DUO line of headlamps—an intuitive lighting solution for operations and maintenance work in harsh environments—at FDIC International 2018.

The three new headlamps debut Petzl-exclusive FACE2FACE anti-glare technology, allowing for automatic simultaneous dimmed lighting when two or more beams cross. The DUO Z1 and Z2 meet the requirements of the ATEX certifications for hazardous areas, while DUO S is ideal when high lumen output is needed.


“The new FACE2FACE anti-glare technology completely changes how teams work together,” said Caleb Krausmann professional division marketing manager for Petzl North America. “These headlamps allow teams to be more efficient and provide them with a new level of brightness. We couldn’t be more excited to reveal this new line.”


The new headlamp line includes the DUO S, DUO Z1 and DUO Z2.


The DUO S ($449.95) is ultra-powerful with 1100 lumens in BOOST mode, making it the most powerful rechargeable headlamp in the lineup. It features five lighting modes and can last between four and 23 hours on a single charge, depending on brightness setting.

The DUO Z1 ($449.95) has a maximum 360 lumens of lighting and runs on a rechargeable battery. It features a multi-beam with four lighting modes, making it adaptable to every work situation. The DUO Z1 can last between seven and 23 hours, dependent on brightness setting. It meets ATEX zone 1/21 certification requirements for work in hazardous areas.
