I Own a 3M Speedglas 9100 FX Air. How do I upgrade to the NEW Speedglas G5-01 Welding Helmet?

Article By: Team AWS

By now you’ve likely heard about the new 3M Speedglas Heavy Duty Respiratory Welding Helmet G5-01. If you are one of the tens of thousands of Australian or Kiwi welders who own a 3M Speedglas 9100 FX Air and would like to upgrade to the new 3M Speedglas G5-01 Welding Helmet, you have TWO options:



1) Keep your Adflo PAPR and Upgrade Your Head-Top Only

The most economical way to upgrade to the new 3M Speedglas G5-01 Welding Helmet is by hanging onto your existing Adflo PAPR and simply upgrading your head-top. The 3M Speedglas G5-01 Upgrade Kit comes with the new 3M Speedglas G5-01 Flip-Up Welding Helmet and the new Speedglas G5-01 Welding Lens with True-View and Variable Colour.

Simply attach the helmet to your existing Adflo PAPR and you can benefit from all the features of the New 3M Speedglas G5-01 Welding Helmet including climate control, larger welding lens with a shade 14, larger grinding visor, narrow more streamlined design, TrueView in the light state, Variable Colour in the dark state, Bluetooth Connectivity and a number of configurable extra protection and lighting options.

2) Upgrade Your Complete System

The second option is obviously to upgrade your complete kit. The new 3M Speedglas G5-01 comes with a heavy-duty Adflo PAPR which gives you approximately 12 hours of battery life. If you’d like to take advantage of the configurable task light then we recommend this heavy-duty battery option, as the task light draws its power from the Adflo battery. The complete kit also comes with the new 3M Speedglas Heavy-Duty Carry Bag to protect the welding helmet and respiratory system in between uses.
