    Welding helmets are available in a wide range of colors and graphics, making them a welder’s most personalized accessory. These visual features are often what catch our attention, but it’s important to look for features that best protect our eyes.

    Today the most popular helmets sold are equipped with auto-darkening capabilities. These helmets protect from harmful light emissions at all times, and automatically darken in milliseconds to an appropriate shade when an arc is struck. In addition to providing critical protection from damaging arc flash, any helmet must be comfortable enough for a full day’s work with flexible and adjustable headgear. Helmets now are considerably more functional to accommodate a welder’s specific needs.
