ArcSafe welding screens, now available from Elliotts , are designed to absorb the dangerous ultra violet light emitted from the arc welding process.

They are manufactured from vinyl film that is processed with a colour dye, a flame retardant and an ultra violet absorber.

The dye used consumes and filters the blue light brightness associated with electric arc welding, while the material surface acts as a reflector to reduce glare to the eyes.

The surface also scatters light in different directions, creating a fluorescent light that causes pupils to constrict and shut out excess glare, further reducing the amount of light that reaches the retina.

ArcSafe welding screens offer a number of additional benefits, including:

  • surrounding welding situations with safety
  • protecting co-workers and other people from the painful effects of accidental welding flash
  • safely and quickly defining hazardous welding areas; and
  • allowing safe observation for safety checks of welding operations.

They can be supplied in red, green or amber, and are certified to Australian Standard AS/NZS 3957:2006 Light transmitting screens and curtains for welding operations.

Elliotts states that ArcSafe welding screens are the only welding screens certified to Australian Standards.
