Helmet Accessories Offers Welders Additional Protection & Comfort

Four new helmet accessories are now available for users of the Speedglas® 9000 auto-darkening welding helmet. The Sweatband in Leather (02-0024-01) is a direct replacement for the plastic sweatband that comes with the Speedglas 9000 helmet. Three sturdy snaps hold the leather sweatband firmly in place on the helmet's adjustable headband. The Head Protector (02-0645-00) is made from flame and spark-resistant Endura® material. It attaches to the top of the helmet via two elastic loops that fasten around the helmet's mounting hardware, as well as a Velcro® strip at the top of the helmet. The Throat & Side Protector (18-0099-68) is a set of three leather pieces that extend the helmet's protection along the sides and bottom of the welder's neck. The three leather pieces can be attached or removed, as desired, via their Velcro fastening strips. The Throat Protector (02-0690-00) has a bib-like design to extend spark protection along the entire front of the welder's throat and upper chest. Its flame-resistant Endura® material fastens via four Velcro strips that loop over the helmet's headband. All Speedglas 9000 helmets have Hornell's exclusive "breathability" design, with aerodynamic exhaust vents that reduce carbon dioxide, humidity and heat. As an option, the welding helmet is also available with the patented Speedglas SideWindows(TM) shade 5 lenses, which increase the welder's peripheral vision by 100%. Speedglas 9000 auto-darkening welding lenses come in four different models, from fixed dark shade lenses to the top-of-the-line Speedglas 9000X lens with five user-adjustable dark shade levels.
