Leading gases and engineering company BOC has launched a new range of speciality helmets to keep welders safe.
BOC has introduced to its workplace safety equipment range, the new state-of-the-art Weld Guard safety welding helmets, available through its distribution centres as well as Gas & Gear outlets in Australia and New Zealand.
Available in a choice of three models, the new welding helmets offer specific protection levels for use with most welding processes, according to Senior Product Manager for Safety at BOC, Joe Martinez. He adds that all the safety welding helmets are lightweight, high impact products that comply with Australian Standards AS/NZS 1337.1 and 1338.1.
The range includes the Auto-tracker, Multi-process and Galaxy models.
The Auto-tracker helmet is ideal for TIG, MIG and MMA welding. It utilises unique sensor technology to allow the cartridge to automatically darken to the required shade level and self adjusts to suit the intensity of the arc.
The Multi-process helmet is suited for TIG, MIG, MMA and gas welding, and is specifically designed for welders with varied job requirements who need an extensive range of adjustment options.
The Galaxy helmet is designed for MIG, MMA, gas welding and grinding. Featuring a flip front, the helmet comes with a modular viewing adaptor that can easily be swapped in and out to provide multiple viewing options.
The Weld Guard PAPR system, also part of the range is a high impact respiratory unit that allows workers to weld in confined spaces. The Weld Guard PAPR helmets provide ideal protection against UV-IR radiation, flying particles, metal fumes and dust emitted during welding and associated processes.
The lightweight unit is approved to AS/NZS standards 1338, 1337 for high impact and 1716 for P3 respiratory.
