Leading safety and industrial equipment specialist BOC today announced the newest addition to its Weld Guard™ protective products range with the launch of the new Weld Guard™ high impact helmet for welding and grinding.

The new auto-darkening helmet, with stand-out graphic design, gives welders the flexibility to work with different processes such as MMA stick welding, MIG/MAG and TIG welding (above 20 amps), offering variable controls that rapidly adjust the shade from light to dark within three milliseconds.

Joe Martinez, Safety Products Manager at BOC explains the new Weld Guard™ helmet offers high protection and is an affordable option that can save users both time and money by welding and grinding with one helmet.

“This Weld Guard™ helmet allows users to conveniently switch from welding to grinding mode for pre and post welding clean ups. The new shell design offers full coverage and is high impact resistant to give the user maximum protection,” said Mr Martinez.

“It is also lightweight and comfortable for a full day’s work and allows magnifying lenses to be fitted, as an optional extra, giving clarity for near sighted welders.”

The Weld Guard™ high impact helmet comes with a two-year conditional warranty and is now available to purchase from BOC Gas & Gears across Australia and online at www.boc.com.au.

The full Weld Guard™ protective products range includes helmets, gloves, jackets, aprons and other accessories.
