Second – Choose Your Head Protection  

Now that you have your platform it’s time to configure your head protection. Every welding environment is different and therefore the demands for extra protection will vary from one work-place to another. Here you can personalise your protection to suit your needs.

Your options are:

-          Standard fabric head protection

-          Extra-long fabric head protection

-          Leather head protection

-          High Visibility head protection

Third – Choose Your Neck Protection

Similar to the configurable head protection you have the option to personalise your neck protection.
