ST. PAUL, Minn., — Style and safety go hand in hand with the 3M Speedglas Graphic Welding Helmet 100 Series expansion. The series is now available with two additional graphic designs, called Tribute and Future Combatant.
The helmets provide wearers with the proven protection of the Speedglas Welding Helmet 100 Series. The Tribute collection boasts a patriotic look and feel, and was designed to honor a fallen Navy SEAL. The Future Combatant line of helmets asserts a futuristic appearance and is designed to remind wearers of the popular pastime of gaming. The new designs join 3M’s other popular designs, such as Aces High, Wild-N-Pink and Ice Hot.
“With more than 15 designs to choose from, the Speedglas Welding Helmet 100 Series provides users with stylish alternatives to a plain helmet,” said Kimberly Gates product marketing, 3M Personal Safety Division, “Many workers wear welding helmets every day and should have the opportunity to showcase their personality through this important safety equipment.”
