    New Speedglas Heavy Duty Series Launches!!

    New Speedglas Heavy Duty Series Launches!!

    The 3M™ Adflo™ powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) has become one of the most popular and widely awarded powered air welding respirators in the world. A slim, robust system designed specifically for welders has now been released in a heavy duty (HD) version to deliver added features and improved performance.

    The new 3M™ Adflo™ HD Series features the new super lightweight heavy duty battery (40% lighter than the previous model) which can extend battery operating time to 12 hours. This can give the welder an extra four (4) hours over the standard systems.

    The HD series also features the new one hour rapid charge. This allows the welder to charge the heavy duty battery from 0% to 80% capacity in approximately one hour.

    The new Adflo PAPR HD system is available with the following 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmets which all feature the new 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Lens 9100XXi with Speedglas TrueView for crisp colour and clarity.

    · 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmet 9100XXi Air
    · 3M™ Speedglas™ Flip-Up Welding Helmet 9100XXi FX Air
    · 3M™ Speedglas™ Flip-Up Welding & Safety Helmet 9100XXi MP Air

    Existing Adflo customers can upgrade to the lighter HD system with rapid charge by purchasing an upgrade kit that includes the all new HD battery pack and charger.

    Best Welding Helmet Vision

    OK, OK, OK...

    You've heard it all before... This welding helmet has the best welding vision or that helmet has the largest viewing area. How do you know which one to choose if they are all "the best welding helmet" or they all "have the best welding optics or vision" and they all have "the biggest welding lens". 

    Here's an idea... Put it on your head or failing that watch this video. This is a simple demo you can do in your own workshop to test the optics of the welding helmet. 


    The Speedglas 9100XXi DOES have the largest viewing area on the market with huge peripheral SideWindows which will blow your mind if you've never worn a Speedglas welding helmet before. Say "goodbye" to tunnel vision and "hello" to your mates trying to sneak up on you.

    3M Speedglas 9100 QR Safety Helmet

    Previously, a widely used option available to welders working in areas with overhead hazards was the combination welding shield with safety helmet. However, since the welding shield and safety helmet are mechanically connected, this meant that when welders’ took off their welding helmet they also removed their overhead protection.

    With the new 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmet 9100 QR, welders never need to remove their safety helmet when they remove their welding helmet. This is particularly important for worksites across Australia and New Zealand where the wearing of safety helmets is compulsory at all times.



    Once secured on the safety helmet the 3M™ Speedglas™ Quick Release Rail allows the welder to easily attach or remove the welding shield with a squeeze of a gloved finger and thumb. The ability to detach the welding shield independently of the safety helmet means it may be removed for non-welding tasks. 

    On the other hand, if the welder prefers to keep the welding helmet attached, it may be quickly and easily parked in the raised position. This parked position creates a low centre of gravity, maintains a low profile and reduces the load on the wearers’ neck.

    “Welders don’t weld one hundred percent of the time. So why should they wear a welding helmet during set-up and non-welding tasks?” says David Chippendale, Marketing Manager at AWS. 

    “The new Speedglas Welding Helmet 9100 QR delivers continuous head protection with the flexibility of being able to attach and detach the top-of-the-line Speedglas auto-darkening welding helmet”.

    The Speedglas Welding Helmet 9100 QR features the new Speedglas 9100XXi welding lens. When combined with the Speedglas SideWindows the Speedglas welding helmet 9100 QR gives welders the largest viewing area available on the Australian & New Zealand market.
    Featuring the new feature packed Speedglas 9100XXi auto-darkening welding lens, SideWindows and a fog reduction vent, the new Speedglas 9100XXi QR welding and safety helmet is packed with features.
