OTB products have created the DC-2 welding helmets with comfort and safety in mind, as they are lightweight and provide maximum head coverage.
The centre of gravity of these welding helmets is located at the rear to maximise user comfort as this helps to minimise both cervical pain and neck injury that may result from wearing them over an extended period, which is typical of a busy welder.
Additionally, the welding helmets have an ergonomic design for ideal balance and fume deflection, and they come equipped with a flame resistant, micro fibre sweatband.
A curved outside protective plate helps welders avoid reflections that may affect vision and cause a general annoyance whilst completing tasks.
These welding helmets successfully balance the need for maximum coverage with the need for oxygen uptake, as they have a breathing zone that is large enough to accommodate a respiratory mask, which will reduce carbon dioxide accumulation while welding.
The helmets do not feature any metal parts; instead they are made from recyclable reinforced polyamide, a material that provides heat resistance and anti-spatter protection.
The welding helmets have also been designed in a manner that ensures the process of changing protective lenses is simple and efficient.
The welding helmets are available in a variety of colours including yellow, blue, green, red and black.
