Welding Helmets - Top Quality & Maximum Protection
There is a large range of different welding helmets available in the Australian market today. There is the passive or auto-darkening lens, fixed or variable shade, two, three or four sensors and different viewing sizes. The right helmet can increase your productivity, weld quality and comfort. So, choose wisely!
At Welding Superstorewe have a great range of high-quality Welding Helmets to choose from. The most important thing is that the helmet you choose should meet Australian Standards AS/NZS 1338.1 (Auto-Darkening) and AS/NZS 1337.1 B (High Impact). This ensures that the helmet and lens have passed independent testing and can survive the high impact from flying objects, provide 100% ultraviolet and infrared filtering regardless of shade setting, and meet advertised switching speeds and dark shades in temperatures as low as -5 degrees and high as 55 degrees.
Passive vs. Auto-Darkening Lens
Welding lens can filter light and this parameter is reflected by "shade numbers". All auto-darkening welding helmets that meet the Australian standard AS/NZS 1338.1 provide 100% protection against harmful infrared and UV rays and may range from a #8 shade for low-amp applications up to a #13 shade for high-amp applications.
Auto-Darkening Welding Helmets
Auto-darkening helmets are available for every welding level and a range of applications - light industrial to heavy industrial.
If you're looking for an auto-darkening helmet there are some things to consider:
- Fixed or Variable Shade.
- Lens reaction time indicates how quickly the lens will switch from its natural light state
- Viewing size is one of the major considerations in purchasing an auto-darkening helmet
- A number of sensors.
- Adjustable Sensitivity Control.
- Adjustable Delay Controls.
