Accessing static objects from volt is not supported, you'll have to create an instantiated helper service for it.

I think you can also write plain PHP code in volt with the standard <?php ... ?> tags.

<?php
$someVar = 'foo bar';
?>

{{ someVar }}

Or just restructure you logic and handle it in the Controller.
