New Miller® Weld-Mask(TM) Welding Goggles Feature Extreme Low-Profile Design for Welding in Restricted Spaces
The Weld-Mask allows for welding in spaces where traditional helmets won’t fit, offering versatility on even the most specialized of applications
APPLETON, Wis. — The new Weld-Mask auto-darkening welding goggles from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. feature an extreme low-profile design that allows welding operators access into spaces where the use of a traditional welding helmet would be limited.
This Miller-exclusive design is usable for gas welding and cutting, as well as light-duty MIG, TIG and Stick welding. It is ideal for maintenance, repair and installation applications, and specialized welding applications where alternative welding protection is needed due to space constraints.
For optimum comfort and protection, the lightweight Weld-Mask design significantly reduces neck strain and offers a tight-fitting eye covering to block out light from the welding or cutting arc. A flame-retardant head cover provides protection against UV/IR rays and light spatter, while the replaceable silicon skirt design ensures a comfortable fit for a variety of face profiles. The Weld-Mask is usable under hard hats without the need for an adapter.
Available with shade numbers 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13, the Weld-Mask also features a light state shade number 3 to provide clear vision between welding or cutting, and it provides 1,000 hours of battery life. A lens frame is included for the easy addition of a prescription or magnifying lens. Two sensors and a switching speed of 1/15,000 seconds ensure consistent protection.
The Weld-Mask meets ANSI, CSA, CE and AS NZ standards.
