Word “Klappvisier” means the type of visor connection. It was developed approximately in 1360 – 1370’ss. Transformed from the “nasal” face element it connected to the skull in the center in the similar way. It was very reliable face protection. The rounded visor of this type is called folding visor. It has the eye-slots with flanges for additional protection of eyes.
