The Speedglas 9100 welding shield is deeper and wider than typical welding shields, providing greater coverage of the neck, ears and sides of the head.

The adjustable, suspended head cradle changes the interface between the welder’s head and the suspension system.

Multiple adjustment options have been added and the static and dynamic loads of the neck have been reduced.

The suspension system avoids vulnerable areas of the head such as sensitive acupressure points above the ear and on the top and back of the head.

The weight of the helmet is evenly distributed to sets of twin pads and a headband that together fit the exact shape of the head.

This reduces the pressure on the skull, enabling the helmet to be worn comfortably for extended periods.

The centre of gravity has been lowered to be just above ear level at the location of the pivot action.

This gives the shield more stability in both the up and down positions and keeps the shield as close as possible to the top of the head when in the up-position.

The auto-darkening filters in the Speedglas shield provide uniform shading and minimal distortion across the viewing area.

There are seven dark shade settings to choose from, including a shade for gas welding and cutting, one for micro-plasma and low-amp TIG welding and others for most arc welding processes.

The new tack welding comfort mode uses a shade 5 light state to help reduce eye fatigue caused by changing light levels.

There is also an option to lock in a shade to suit an application.

The series includes three new auto-darkening filter (ADF) models that are differentiated by size: normal, large and extra-large.

An extra large filter option is 30 per cent larger than any other Speedglas welding filter.
