Welding Helmets

A top priority in welding personal protective equipment (PPE) is high quality eye protection. Welding helmets in the United States must meet ANSI standards. General standards ensure that the helmet lens protects the welder from anything dangerous to the eyes and face.

There are two general styles of welding helmets: passive and auto-darkening variable shade. A passive helmet has a darkly tinted lens that will not lighten. An auto-darkening unit changes shade depending on the when the weld arc is struck.
