The 3M™ Speedglas™ Brand

Article By: Team AWS

From the first ground-breaking auto-darkening helmet in 1981 to their current line-up of state-of-the-art welding equipment and safety products, their revolutionary technology continues to make the Speedglas™ brand one of the safest and most reliable of all auto-darkening welding helmets and powered air respirators available.



The #1st Brand in Welding Helmets

Almost 40 years ago, a study of the welder's working situation was conducted in the shipyards of Sweden. Soon after, Speedglas released the first auto-darkening welding helmet ever and with its exclusive technology has been the benchmark for welding equipment and personal protection ever since.



The Brand of Choice for Professional Welders

Today Speedglas is the brand of choice for professional welders, with their welding shields worn proudly by over 1 million active users throughout Australia and New Zealand and around the world. The 3M Speedglas auto darkening welding helmets and 3M™ Adflo™ powered air welding respirator systems can be found in virtually every industry. Designed and manufactured in Sweden, Speedglas remains one of the world's leading brands of advanced personal protective equipment for welders.



Trust Takes Time… 40 Years in Fact

Trust in a brand can’t be built overnight. It takes years to become known and even longer to be trusted. While other products and brands have come and gone, the 3M™ Speedglas™ brand, guided by welders, has continued to drive innovation and lead from the front.

The Speedglas Welding Helmet Series 9100 and the 3M™ Adflo™ Powered Air Respirator have reached legendary status within the welding industry and Generation 5 is set to change the game forever. The first helmet in 3M Speedglas Generation 5, Speedglas G5-01, has now launched in Australia and New Zealand.
