Choosing the right welding helmet can be difficult and with so many options, choice is not a problem. So get a helmet that suits
you and has the features that match your needs.
Keep this in mind when making your selection:
- You view of the arc
- Arc detection
Does the helmet give you full protection and cover your head correctly?
Viewing area is critical, usually the more expensive the helmet the better your viewing area.
Auto Darkening is rated on sensitivity, the more sensitive the more reliable, look for a lens rated 1A.
Respiratory Protection can often be overlooked, but make sure you consider a helmet that meets your requirements now and ongoing.
Make sure you get a helmet with replaceable batteries, otherwise you will need to replace your helmet when the batteries die,
even solar helmets have batteries.
On average batteries last around 2000 hours.
Make sure the helmet is comfortable, try it on and set it up. Then imagine wearing this for hours at a time, it has to be comfortable.
