The newly launched Air Helmet has been added to Weldtech UK’s range of supplies to ensure that welders in the UK as well as abroad receive the latest and safest equipment, maximising protection during fusion tasks in construction, manufacturing and shipbuilding work.

The helmet is specially engineered for the hazards prevalent among welders in tighter, harsh workspaces. It prevents wearers from ingesting the harmful particles and gases that come from welding fumes, which are particularly dangerous in unventilated areas.

Adding updated versatility and features to the standard ESAB Sentinel A50 Helmet, the Air model makes use of its included Powered Air Purifying Respirator blowing unit to provide 170 litres of clean, filtered air per minute via its one-metre hose.

The battery-powered blowing units are rechargeable, typically covering up to eight hours of operation. Despite weighing only 1 kilogram, the units can withstand the toughest of working environments.

Further, the helmet model retains its shell design with high impact resistance nylon. Weldtech UK emphasises that the ergonomic Halo headgear with ultra-clear lens provides additional comfort and balance to ensure that welders are able to work without physical restriction or visual impairment.

“If you have to weld, then you also have to protect yourself,” said a company spokesperson. “Now that the more insidious risks of welding are better understood, it’s imperative that your welding hood or helmet is air-fed and keeping those toxic welding fumes and dust out of your lungs.”

In providing occupational health for their customer base of welding professionals and hobbyists with the new ESAB Sentinel A50 Air Helmet and PAPR Unit 1m Hose Package, Weldtech UK strives to offer better value and ensured protective measures.
