The desire for an adaptable welding helmet tailored to workplace demands was the starting point in the design of the 3M Speedglas Heavy-Duty Welding Helmet G5-01. It offers comfortable lightness, compactness and strong agility at a high safety-related level. The welding filter’s visibility conditions can be modified by adapting the luminous transmittance as well as the colour tone. The novel, adjustable air guidance system protects the user’s eyes, face and respiratory system. In addition, integrated Bluetooth functionality ensures access to important data.
