3M Launches Exciting New Welding Shields You Won't Want to be Without
Are you a Blaze or a Trojan Warrior?
The latest range of Speedglas welding shields from 3M, the diversified technology company, has arrived. Designed specifically for the occasional welder who still values excellent protection, the light weight, user-friendly Speedglas 100 shield is ideal for those who need to weld occasionally such as plumbers, construction workers and the auto-trade, as well as hobby welders and DIYers.
Exceptionally light in weight, but powerful in performance, the new shield offers all the premium qualities of the Speedglas brand at an affordable price. 3M's design team has created five unique versions of the shield - all you have to decide is whether you want to be wearing The Blaze, The Mechanical Skull, The Tribal or The Trojan Warrior - or you may want to be seen in The Chrome.
Introducing the new product range, Caroline Walton, Senior Marketing Executive of 3M's Occupational Health and Environmental Safety Division, said, "3M's range of Speedglas shields is widely recognised as one of the best. Over the past year we have carried out considerable research and development in this area as we wanted to provide a solution for part-time, home welders and professional welders that gave them the same level of commitment to quality and protection as our premium range of Speedglas shields. We understand users' demand for comfort, vision and protection and have incorporated a number of design features in the 100 range that makes Speedglas one of the world's leading welding brands."
The Speedglas 100 Series includes the excellent 100V auto-darkening filter that provides uniform shading across the entire viewing area. The shields have five user-selectable dark shades from shades 8 to 12, with a light shade of 3. The Speedglas 100V shield also has three sensitivity settings: a normal setting used for most types of welding (both indoors and outdoors), a setting for when other welders are working nearby and a setting for a stable arc (e.g. TIG) welding. It also features a versatile headband, designed to be adjusted with one hand, making the shield adaptable to different shaped and sized faces and heads.
Speedglas welding shields and auto-darkening filters are based on more than 25 years of expertise in developing and producing extraordinarily reliable and durable equipment.
