Speedglas Helmet

The new 3M™ Speedglas™ Heavy-Duty Welding Helmet G5-01 with Adflo PAPR gives professional welders the ultimate in comfort, protection and adaptability. The Speedglas G5-01 marks the 5th generation of Speedglas welding helmets, introducing the latest in welding lens technology combined with flip-front functionality for grinding.

PPE Made in Sweden

All Speedglas welding helmets are made in Sweden with every lens still checked by hand.

Protection from Welding Fume

Super comfortable welding face seal follows the contours of both the helmet and the face to provide a positive pressure seal from pollutants. The exclusive airflow pattern of the respiratory welding mask evenly distributes filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder.

Built for Heavy-Duty Welding

Designed specifically for heavy-duty applications, the Speedglas G5-01VC auto-darkening lens features an extra-dark shade of 14 for high amperage welding.

Choose How you View your Welds

Speedglas Variable Colour Technology lets you choose between natural, cool and warm tones for your dark state. You determine which colour tone provides the best contrast for your welds, and the most comfort for your eyes.

Largest Ever Speedglas Welding Lens with True-View

View your welds through a massive 73 x 109mm viewing area, with even greater clarity. 3M Speedglas True-View has literally changed the way welders see, making what you see through the lens appear lighter, more detailed and colourful.

Huge Clear & Curved Grinding Visor with Removable Welding Shield

A smooth flip-up function reveals an extra-large 170x104 mm clear grinding visor – 16% larger than the Speedglas 9100 FX Air. For extended non-welding work, users can completely remove the welding visor – reducing the helmet weight by over 35%.

Don’t Go with the Flow

An innovative helmet duct system lets you take control over the direction of your airflow, for extra comfort in hot conditions. All adjustments can be made while wearing the helmet, maintaining your eye, face and respiratory protection.

Configure your Coverage

The G5-01 is compatible with a range of extra protection options to suit your welding environment and needs. The range of extended head and neck covers are available in leather, fabric and high-visibility options.

Bluetooth Connectivity and Memory Modes

The Speedglas G5-01 lens features Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to change lens settings, review welding statistics and access user manuals – all from the palm of your hand. Program up to four memory modes for easy switching.

Light Up your Workspace

A new, optional helmet-mounted task light provides hours of powerful lighting for welding in poorly lit spaces.

Slim Design Offers Increased Coverage

Streamlined profile gives more coverage for welders’ ears, head and neck.

Unrivalled Arc Detection and Switching with Auto-On

Photo-sensors capable of detecting an arc down to an industry-leading 1 amp. With Auto-On your welding helmet is instantly ready to weld; programmed to your last used welding setting.

Highest Optical Rating

Speedglas heavy-duty welding helmet G5-01 gives the welder the highest possible optical classification (1/1/1) and is compliant with AS/NZS1338.1.

All Welding Applications with Multiple Modes

With shades 3, 5, 8, 9-14 and multiple mode settings you can weld, cut, grind and tack, indoors and outdoors even with a completely hidden arc.

Compliant with all relevant Australian & New Zealand Standards

Compliant with Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1337.1 (high impact face protection), AS/NZS1338.1 (eye protection) and AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).

Comfort & Ergonomics

An improved headband design sets the industry benchmark for comfort and ergonomics. The harness distributes weight perfectly, avoids sensitive areas and allows for complete customisation to your head. An extra-large back pad offers enhanced comfort.

Magnification Lens Holder

Built-in holder for magnifying lenses makes attaching the lens easier and optimises the position for better vision.

Speedglas Welding PPE is a long term investment

The Speedglas G5-01 helmet has a custom designed multi-function programmed logic chip that minimises the number of discrete surface-mounted components; leading to improved reliability and longevity.

Industry Leading Warranty Protection:

The Speedglas G5-01 features a revolving three year warranty. Experience a problem with the welding mask in the first three years and your 3 year warranty protection starts again. Speedglas helmets are built to last.

The Heavy Duty Adflo Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)

One Hour Rapid Charge Heavy Duty Battery with Long Life

The new heavy duty Adflo lithium-ion battery charges from 0-80% of its full capacity in approximately one hour and lasts approximately 12-14 hours depending on conditions (extends battery life by approximately 4 hours over the standard systems).

Synonymous with welder’s respiratory protection

One of the most popular PAPR’s in the world, the award-winning Adflo welding respirator has become synonymous with welder’s powered air protection and provides increased safety and comfort all day long.

Because you only have one pair of lungs

The Adflo welding respirator provides a required minimum protection factor of 50 for mechanically and thermally generated particles and conforms to Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).

Exclusive Adflo airflow pattern

The exclusive airflow pattern evenly distributes filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder. The intelligent turbo unit keeps the airflow rate at a constant level. A diffuser spreads out the airflow pattern for your maximum comfort.

Super Light Welding Respirator with Slim Profile

On body respiratory protection allows for full-mobility and the slim profile makes the Adflo respirator perfect for welding in tight spaces. The system has recently been reduced in weight by a further 15%.

Self-Adjusting Quick Release Swivel Hose

The Quick Release Swivel (QRS) allows for one handed connection and release. The self-adjusting length means the welding hose is always kept close to the welder to prevent snagging on surrounding objects.

Stackable Protection from Welding Particles, Fumes and Gases

With the right type of respiratory filter, the Adflo respirator can effectively protect against both particles and gases - an important safety feature. Indicators assist the welder in knowing when to change the Adflo filters and to charge the Adflo battery.

Standard & Airflow Plus

The airflow is always a constant nominal rate of 170 litres per minute regardless of the battery’s charge or the particle loading of the filter. For hot, humid jobs, you can increase the airflow to 200 litres per minute to reduce welder fatigue and increase your overall welding comfort.

Industry Leading Warranty Protection

The Adflo PAPR features a revolving two year warranty. Experience a problem with the system in the first two years and your 2 year warranty protection starts again. Speedglas helmets and Adflo powered air welding respirator systems are built to last.
