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.

Welding Shield with Huge Clear & Curved Grinding Visor

A smooth flip-up function reveals a huge 170x100 mm clear grinding visor with 180 degree vision.

Speedglas Welding Lens with True-View

3M Speedglas True-View has literally changed the way welders see, making what you see through the lens appear lighter, more detailed and colourful.

Largest Welding Mask Viewing Area Available:

The huge Speedglas 9100XXi auto-lens combined with the Speedglas peripheral SideWindows gives you the largest welding shield viewing area available on the market.

Speedglas SideWindows

Previously hidden peripheral hazards (beams, obstacles and other workers) are now visible through two, shade 5 side lenses (conventional shade 13 protection).

Highest Optical Rating

Speedglas welding helmet series 9100 gives the welder the highest possible optical classification (1/1/1) and is compliant with AS/NZS1338.1.

Unrivalled Arc Detection and switching

Photo-sensors capable of detecting an arc down to an industry-leading 1 amp with centre sensor for TIG applications.

All Welding Applications with Multiple Modes

With shades 3, 5, 8, 9-13 and multiple mode settings you can weld, cut, grind and tack, indoors and outdoors even with a completely hidden arc.

Welding Mask with Auto-On

With Auto-On your welding helmet is instantly ready to weld; programmed to your last used welding setting.

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

This harness sets the industry benchmark for comfort and ergonomics. The harness distributes weight perfectly, avoids sensitive areas and allows for complete customisation to your head.

The Signature Speedglas Silver Front

The silver front on a Speedglas auto-darkening welding helmet is not just a design feature, it also reflects heat from the weld keeping you cool and comfortable.

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

All Speedglas 9100 auto helmets have custom designed multi-function programmed logic chips that minimise the number of discrete surface-mounted components; leading to improved reliability and longevity.

Industry Leading Warranty Protection:

Speedglas 9100 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 Adflo Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)

Synonymous with Respiratory Protection for Welders

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

Because you only have one pair of lungs

The 3M Adflo 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 PAPR unit keeps the airflow rate at a constant level. A diffuser spreads out the airflow pattern for your maximum comfort.

One Hour Rapid Charge Battery with Long Life

The new Adflo lithium-ion battery charges from 0-80% of its full capacity in approximately one hour and lasts approximately 8-10 hours depending on conditions. Indicators assist the welder in knowing when to change the filters and to charge the battery.

Super Light Welding Respirator with Slim Profile

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

Self-Adjusting Breathing Hose

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

Stackable Protection from Welding Fume, Particles and Gases

With the right type of filter, the respirator can effectively protect against both particles and gases - an important welding safety feature.

Standard & Airflow Plus

The respirator 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 comfort and welding safety.

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 PAPR systems are built to last.
