Whether your welding profession takes to production plant or your garage, it is important piece of safety equipment. When it comes to welding jobs, your eyes are vulnerable to damage which is caused by the bright white light. Some welders use welding shields, which serve the purpose anyway, but those who take their safety seriously invest in welding helmets.
If you are shopping for a helmet, which is the best thing to do, the variety of welding helmets out there can be a bit overwhelming. Besides price, here are some important considerations to make before buying a welding helmet.Type of Lens
The type of welding lens used determines the eye-protection mechanism in any welding helmet. Do you need a fixed a variable lens shade? Most helmets in the market feature a fixed Ultraviolet and infrared protection lens. This type of lens gives you a constant level of protection irrespective of the intensity of light involved. This means the welder has to keep lifting or removing the lens when he or she is not working. To make work easy, you should consider using a helmet with a variable shade lens which has an auto-darkening feature that adjusts itself using some light sensors mounted on it.Switching Speed
The switching speed matters a lot when one is looking for a helmet with an auto-darkening lens. This parameter defines the lens reaction when exposed to different light intensities. If you only need to weld occasionally, the switching speeds might not matter a lot. But professionals who are always with their welding guns are advised to go for a lens with intermediate or professional level switching speed.Weight
Another important parameter to look at when shopping for a helmet is the weight. Your helmet of choice should not be substantial. A light helmet is comfortable to wear and does not put you at risk of neck strains when worn for long hours. As a tip, professional welders should choose the lightest available helmet.
There is nothing like a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to choosing helmets. Thus, it is advisable to do some due diligence before buying a helmet. As much as you might be interested in a few features in a helmet, you also need to factor in your welding preference. Purchasing an ergonomic helmet will undoubtedly pay off in terms of quality and levels of productivity.…
