voestalpine Böhler Welding Launches Protection Line
Filler material specialist voestalpine Böhler Welding has launched its own line of personal protection equipment.
The line includes the newest weldCare Guardian line of auto-darkening welding helmets and eyewear safety glasses. Using the latest developments in optics and ergonomics, they combine protection with wearing comfort and user-friendliness, the company says.
The Guardian series of battery-powered, auto-darkening welding helmets consists of three types that all meet the safety and durability requirements of relevant CE and ANSI standards, and all feature high-impact nylon shells and comfortable headgear with longitudinal and angular adjustments. The helmets are available in Böhler Welding and UTP Maintenance brand design.
The Guardian50 is a universal welding helmet for multi-process situations featuring a larger-than-usual viewing area of 50 x 100mm and a higher optical clarity rating of 1/1/1/2 according EN 379, with four sensors and a darkening filter shade 4, 9-13. It uses True Blue Color technology.
The Guardian62 is the universal welding helmet for multi-process situations and is light in weight, with a lower filter shade range 5-9, making it suited for oxy-fuel welding and torch brazing (4, 5-9, 9-13), and with a viewing area of 62 x 98mm.
The Guardian62F offers the same performance as the Guardian62 but is additionally equipped with a flip visor making it very suited for welding applications involving frequent grinding.
Eyewear welding glasses are designed to be comfortable and robust, but are at the same time fashionable. They fulfill the requirements of industrial standard EN 166F and are CE approved. The glasses withstand the impact of smaller objects colliding at a speed up to 45m/s. They come in four different glasses: clear, amber, blue mirror/silver mirror, and UVIR5, the company reports.
