The Problem

Many of the Australian auto darkening welding helmet agents are unable to honor product warranties for welding helmets and welding respirators purchased online through foreign channels. Meaning that if you purchase a welding helmet from overseas or anywhere other than an approved Australian distributor, the Australian agent will not cover your product under warranty. You will need to return your welding helmet or welding respirator back to where you purchased it from, which can be time consuming, costly or impossible and end up costing you more than the welding helmet!!  

What makes this situation worse is that many electronic products like welding helmets and powered air respirators are manufactured to be climate specific – meaning that welding helmets purchased from overseas intended for foreign markets may not be built for Australia’s humid conditions (silicone coatings, switches and components can vary in different markets). This will obviously increase the likelihood of electronic fault, which as explained above, will not be covered under warranty in Australia.

Products intended for other markets are also rarely compliant with Australian & New Zealand standards (AS/NZS). This means that if you require products compliant with AS/NZS onsite, you may be liable should you purchase foreign products. Also note that auto darkening welding helmets and welding respirators purchased from a distributor or person within Australia could very well be foreign products - therefore always buy through approved Australian welding helmet distributors like Eweld.
