Comfortable and Stylish

Comfortable and Stylish

Lightweight, Yet Durable

Constructed of extremely durable, high-impact nylon to offer all of the dependable protection you need, while remaining lightweight for extended wear without wearing you down.

See it All Clearly

Dive into that project without worrying about any blind spots. A spacious 3.86in. x 1.73in. viewing area gives you a clear view of your entire work area.

All-Day Comfort

4-point ratcheting headgear allows you to adjust the fit to your own personal wearing preferences for maximum comfort that lasts as long as your project does. An absorbent, replaceable sweatband soaks up the perspiration to keep moisture out of your eyes and off the lens for safety and added comfort.

No-Scratch Lens

The lens is coated with UV/IR protection to help prevent scratching and discoloration, keeping your view safe and clear.

Eye-Catching Graphics

Let your style shine through while you weld. With a lively flame graphic set on a solid black backdrop, this helmet looks as great as it protects!

Safety through Reaction

Automatic Protection

The lens will automatically darken to 9–13 variable shades, matching your protection to the job at hand. And the auto darkening still functions, even when welding with as low as 2 Amps to ensure protection in any situation.

Lightning-Fast Switch Time

The extraordinarily quick 1/25,000-second switch time ensures that the lens will automatically darken to deliver the protection you need before there is any effect on the eye.

Adjustable Sensitivity

Built-in sensitivity control offers the capability to dial in the sensitivity that's right for you. The easy adjustment control lets you choose less or greater sensitivity as needed.

Fully Automatic Operation

No need to remember to turn the helmet on before firing up the welder. The fully automatic on/off switch takes care of that for you. And the lens maintains a shade of 3.5 when not welding.

Safety through Reaction
Versatility in Action

Versatility in Action

Multiple Process Capabilities

A welding helmet that can only handle one process isn't always the most useful choice. This helmet is ideal for use in MIG, Arc, Flux or TIG welding processes without compromising its effectiveness.

Hard Hat Compatible

Portability, durability and hard hat compatibility combine to make this welding helmet a perfect choice for use at the worksite. (Item# 26435, sold separately, is required to make this item hard hat compatible).

Safe and Self-Sufficient

Meets ANSI and CSA/CE Standards

ANSI Z87.1-2003 | CSA Z94.3 testing was done by Colts® Labs to ensure that this Ironton helmet meets or exceeds the nationally recognized standards and delivers the safety and performance you're looking for.

Charges While You Work

On-board solar cells automatically recharge the batteries during use, so you never run out of protection and never have to worry about plugging in a charger.
