Welding Helmets & Lenses from Linde Gas & Equipment

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is an essential part of shop life. These wearable safeguards can help protect workers from injury, lacerations, illness and burns while operating or being near machinery or while using or handling certain materials. Arc welding produces radiation, as well as intense heat and light, including ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) rays. Welding helmets are used for face and eye protection.

A welding helmet is a fundamental type of PPE for welding in industries such as aerospace, energy, construction, automotive. Here at Linde Gas & Equipment, we stock a variety of welding helmets and supplies such as lenses, sweatbands, replacement headgear and more. With the support of our 300+ retail locations and 10 distribution centers, we work to ensure you have access to high-quality PPE from the manufacturers you trust.

The Use of Welding Helmets

Welding helmets, also known as welding hoods, may be the first PPE purchase a new welder will make. They're worn to optimize productivity while helping to reduce the risk of injury during metal inert gas (MIG), tungsten inert gas (TIG) and shielded metal arc (SMAW or stick) welding applications. Some of the benefits they provide include:

Face and Eye Protection:

A welding helmet appropriate for your application and worn properly can help protect your face and eyes against sparks, intense heat, UV and OR radiation, as well as flying particles. Without it, welders risk arc burn on otherwise exposed skin, traditional burns from heat, particles, or sparks from the weld, and arc burn in their eyes.

Adjustable Fit:

Most helmets are designed with adjustable headgear assemblies that allow the adjustment of how the welding helmet sits on the welder’s head to enable the right fit. Users can many times also adjust the balance, degree of tilt and distance from the face for lasting comfort – important for long shifts.

Protect Weld Quality:

Not only can the welder be protected from the arc and sparks of welding through the use of a welding helmet, but weld quality is also impacted for the better. When using a welding helmet, the choice of a lens appropriate for the welding process and user preference can help ensure clarity of vision while welding. This helps the welder adjust the torch, rod or gun as needed to get consistent, high-quality results.

Personalization:

While helmets are important for safety purposes, they also provide many professionals with a way to let their personalities shine through. Colors, patterns, graphics and decals are popular additions to welding helmets and are available in different shapes, sizes and colors. Welders have a variety of choices from a large number of manufacturers.

Welding Helmet Styles and Options:

There are different types of welding helmets available for welders. Some available options are made for specific purposes such as pipeline hoods or pancake hoods. Other styles are offered with specific features, such as a longer bottom edge for greater neck coverage. Still other options and styles are aesthetically motivated to appeal to many different tastes.

Available styles include hoods with smaller 2 in. x 4 in. lenses. Some of these offer a flip-up lens mechanism to help welders keep the hood down while working, only having to flip up the dark shaded lens, revealing a clear lens underneath, when chipping or brush a completed weld. Other styles include options for 4 in. x 5 in. sized lenses for a larger viewing area.

At present, many manufacturers also offer a number of welding helmets with auto-darkening lenses. Some lenses are built to provide a single shade rating and others are variable shade lenses. A crucial benefit of these auto-darkening lenses is that they continually provide face and eye protection from UV and IR radiation, even when turned off or in a neutral state. This allows similar flexibility to a helmet with a flip up lens – darkened lens while welding and a mostly clear lens between welds for chipping, brushing and grinding completed welds.

Welding Helmet Accessories

Linde offers a variety of accessories and replacement parts. These include replacement shade-rated and clear lenses, sweatbands for head gears, welder hats and much more. An important accessory to be sure and include are clear safety glasses. Linde recommends wearing safety glasses at all times when in industrial environments and near welding processes, even with your welding helmet down and welding. Consistent eye protection is important, even as you raise and lower your welding helmet.
