These hats consist of an octagonal prism with an octagonal pyramid on top. The visor forms an integral part of the surface development. Windows were cut to provide the necessary ventilation. These proved to be very comfortable in practice.The design was inspired by the Victorian dome which forms a prominent part of the school architecture.
Most of the surface development consisted of a single piece, integrating the prism with the pyramid.
