Welding Helmets

Sight for Sore Eyes

Clearly, the right auto-darkening helmet boosts productivity and quality. Here's how optical clarity defines helmet performance by providing users with vital eye protection and the ability to fully see the work . . . and that’s when work is done best.

Improving Welder Safety and Comfort with New Head Protection Technologies

A PAPR is a powered air purifying respirator paired with a welding helmet that uses a blower to pass ambient air through a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to remove contaminants and supply purified air in a sealed welding helmet. This removes at least 99.97 percent of airborne particles 0.3 micrometers in diameter.
Recent technology advancements in welding helmets not only help to protect welders from lost-time or work-related injury, but they increase productivity by increasing comfort levels. Regardless of the type of head protection a welder chooses, it is critical to make sure that the helmet, PAPR or other such personal protective equipment (PPE) is properly suited for the welding application at hand and also provides the appropriate level of protection.

Auto-Darkening Filter Welding Helmet

For superior visibility and advanced color recognition, the Jackson Safety* TrueSight II Auto-Darkening Filter (ADF) Welding Helmet from Kimberly-Clark Professional delivers best-in-class optical clarity for clear views from various angles that reduce eye fatigue and the need to move, adjust and refocus.
The new Jackson Safety TrueSight II Auto-Darkening Filter Welding Helmet from Kimberly-Clark Professional delivers best-in-class optical clarity for enhanced precision and productivity while delivering superior visibility and advanced color recognition.

Weld More Comfortably and Efficiently in Demanding Environments

To protect welders better and enable them to perform more efficiently with greater precision, the e684 helmet from Optrel uses exclusive Adaptive Shade Autopilot technology to automatically adjust the auto-darkening filter to the appropriate shade level between 5 and 13 as the operator welds. As the intensity of the arc changes, the shade level of the ADF changes hands-free and in high definition viewing.
Optrel marries the e684 helmet with advanced auto-darkening filter lens technology and optics to the innovative, ergonomically designed e3000 powered air purifying respiratory system.

Advanced Welding Safety Equipment

Ideal for maintenance, repair and installation, and specialized welding applications where alternative welding protection is needed due to space constraints, the extreme low-profile design of Weld-Mask auto-darkening goggles from Miller Electric allows welding operators access into spaces where the use of a traditional welding helmet would be limited in gas welding and cutting, light-duty MIG, TIG and Stick welding.
Arc Armor Welding Protection from Miller Electric uses technology solutions that include Digital Infinity Series welding helmets, Weld-Mask auto-darkening goggles, the N95 disposable respirator and the LPR-100 half-mask.
