HELMETS SET NEW BENCHMARK FOR COMFORT AND SAFETY

Finnish-based welding equipment manufacturer Kemppi has launched its new Gamma range of seven helmets, ranging from standard eye and face protection to advanced respiratory systems providing welders with a safe breathing environment throughout their working day.

Designed to deliver maximum comfort and safety, the helmets set a new benchmark, protecting the eyes, face and respiratory system, providing excellent optical quality and large, adjustable view areas, and integrating work lights for low-light working conditions.

As well as the known hazards of intense light and heat from welding and cutting arcs, welding also contaminates the surrounding air. Fumes contain dangerous particles that are generally not visible to the naked eye, polluting the breathing air and posing serious health risks.

Typically, welders can breathe 4000L of air during an 8-hour shift, and if the lungs are unprotected, tiny those particles can pass deep into the lungs and cause serious health risks through short- and long-term exposure. The new helmets protect welders from 99.8 per cent of airborne fumes and particulates.

“The Gamma series, when used together with the new powered filter unit, meets the highest European Total Inward Leakage classification for respiratory performance, class TH3 as well as Australian and New Zealand standards,” says Kemppi Australia Managing Director David Green. “This places the Gamma series in a category all of its own when it comes to delivering maximum overall protection for the welder.”

Powered by either a battery-operated filter pack or an airline breathing source, Gamma GTH3 respirator models use positive air pressure to exclude fumes and supply clean air.

Meeting the highest filtration performance for respiratory protection, the belt-mounted, battery-powered PFU 210e filter pack offers total freedom of movement around a worksite, and the supplied air models can be connected to a breathing air system to meet the local standards.

The helmets provide excellent optical quality and large viewing areas, which can be adjusted for different working positions. LiFE+ Colour auto-darkening filter technology enables greater clarity of vision, and remote control buttons located on the inside, upper surface of the helmet shell allow users to quickly and conveniently adjust the filter even when they are wearing the helmet.

When the welding visor is lifted, a 198cm2 clear impact-protection shield provides superb visibility. For low light conditions, the XFA models integrate 70-lumen LED work lights.

To ensure maximum comfort, the ComFlex headband offers flexibility for the perfect fit to the user’s individual head shape and personal preferences. The suspended weight of the helmet is distributed evenly to help reduce fatigue.

The seven models in the range are suitable for use in all arc-based processes including welding, cutting and gouging, and in grinding and inspection work.
