How to stop light reflections (glare) in your welding helmet

Date: 23-05-2018

At last: a solution to this old annoying problem... the PROMAX HS self-attaching hood by Weldclass!


3 Reasons why the Promax FR Hood for welding helmets is a must-have for welders:



1. It Blocks Out Light

There's nothing more annoying than having your vision impared by sunlight and reflections entering your welding helmet.  The Promax helmet hood provides an all-round screen that blocks out light... now you get your vision back and you can concentrate on the job at hand.

2. It Protects Head, Neck & Ears... Comfortably

As many welders would know, getting spatter down your ear is a bizarre and very painful experience!  Likewise; spatter, sparks and debris entering the back of your helmet is not only a hazard but also very distracting.  And for welders who work in the great outdoors..  we also have the problem of sun-burn.  

Sure, additional safety gear can help protect the welder from all this, but there is a limit to how much PPE you can fit under a welding helmet.

The Promax helmet hood helps protect you from all this.... comfortably. It fits ON your helmet, not under it, which means it doesn't cramp your space. The open design also allows good ventilation, and it's super light weight.


3. It Quickly Self-Attaches to any helmet:

The Promax helmet hood is supplied with self-stick hook & loop.  Simply stock one side of the hook & loop to your helmet, and then attach the hood.  Simple!

What is it made from?

The Promax helmet hood is made from flame/fire-retardant cotton (the material that we use to make our welding jackets)... and is sewn with Kevlar Heat-Resistant thread to prevent seam failure.

    Good question Rob. Leather is much more likely to fog as it doesn’t “breathe”. Our hood is made from FR cotton fabric (same fabric that our other FR garment are made from) which will breathe a lot better than leather. You will also note that our hood design also allows good ventilation around the should/neck area. We are not aware of anyone having fog issues with our hood.

    Will fog up your welding to fix that? I tried leather protection from top and had major fogging on lens....took it off and the problem was fixed.
