The #1 brand in welder's PPE
Trust in a brand can’t be built overnight. It takes years to become known and even longer to be trusted. In 1981, over 40 years ago, Speedglas™ released the first ever auto-darkening welding helmet and has consistently set the industry benchmark ever since.
Speedglas Respiratory Welding Helmets lead from the front with one of the most popular welding respirators in the world… the 3M Adflo Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR).
The award-winning Adflo PAPR offers excellent lightweight, adaptable and mobile respiratory protection that goes where you go and has a Required Minimum Protection Factor (RMPF) of 50. This means it supplies a minimum 50 times cleaner air than the welder would otherwise breathe unprotected.

Which respiratory welding helmet is the best for me?
Speedglas PAPR welding helmets feature the most powerful and reliable arc detection on the market, along with an overall viewing experience like no other. Selecting which welding helmet is best for your requirements is straightforward.
If you require a safety helmet, there is only one option – the Speedglas 9100 MP Air. The 9100 MP Air offers 5 levels of protection, compliant with Australian and New Zealand standards for eye protection, high impact face protection, respiratory protection, head protection, and optional hearing protection.
If you don’t require a safety helmet, three options remain:
The 9100 FX Air and G5-01 are flip-up respiratory welding helmets that include a large, curved and clear visor perfect for grinding applications, set-up, moving around the workshop, and low light conditions. The flip-up functionality is also an important safety feature when it comes to effectively maintaining your respiratory, face and eye protection.
The Speedglas 9100 FX Air has firmly established itself as the most popular and most trusted PAPR welding helmet in Australia, New Zealand and around the world. The Speedglas G5-01 was launched in 2019 as a heavy-duty option with an even larger viewing area, Variable Colour, Climate Control, and a slimmer design. So, choose between the king of the industry or the latest model complete with new to world technology!
Lastly, if you don’t require flip-up functionality and would prefer to make your respiratory welding helmet as light as possible, then the Speedglas 9100 Air is the option for you. The 9100 Air is a fixed front respiratory welding helmet that features an external button that gives you access to grind mode and 2 pre-set welding memory settings.
All PAPR welding helmet options carry a 3 year warranty on the welding lens and a 2 year warranty on the Adflo PAPR. This cover is revolving, meaning that if you experience an issue with your lens or PAPR within this period, you will be issued with a replacement and your period of cover starts again. You can extend your cover by an extra year for free by registering your product here!
