Honeywell Safety Products introduced the new HW100 and HW200 auto-darkening-filter welding helmets with shade 9-13 protection. The helmets’ innovative design combines the safety and performance of high-quality ADF filters with a sleek, lightweight helmet shell for superior comfort and increased productivity. With a light state of Shade 3 on the HW100 or Shade 4 on the HW200, these welding helmets offer a clear view of the work area during set-up, as well as pre- and post-fabrication activities.
Honeywell Safety Products' Uvex Turboshield faceshield headgear delivers superior comfort through a patented cradle that provides 300% more contact area than traditional suspensions and eliminates pressure points for all-day wear. A patent-pending, push-button release system enables extremely easy visor exchange in seconds. The unique, toric-shaped visor provides excellent optics, increased field of view, and 50% more chin coverage than traditional cylindrical visors without the need for bulky accessories.
