One of the most important aspects of choosing your welding equipment is to ensure that your personal protective welding equipment is effective. Whether you are arc welding, gas welding, MIG welding, TIG welding, Stick welding, or any other type of welding, you should ensure that your welding safety has every area covered.
Some basics of welding protection include high quality flame resistant protective clothing. For added protection a welding jacket is highly recommended for an added safety measure. Quality work boots are also essential for foot protection, in addition knee pads are recommended if you are consistently kneeling on rough surfaces.
Miller’s range of welding safety gear has been designed for welders, by welders, specifically designed to handle tough industrial environments.
When it comes to safety, a good quality Auto-Darkening helmet is a must. Miller’s safety range includes the Digital Elite helmets, featuring the latest digital lens technology to deliver protection and an ergonomic design to maximise comfort. They also offer a high impact rating, 3 years warranty and they comply with Australian Standards.
WIA also offer a range of Auto-darkening welding helmets, including the Blue, BlueFX and ViewFX. All have been designed to provide welding protection, comfort and quality at an affordable price, and like the Miller helmets, they comply with Australian Standards.
All WIA and Miller helmets come with grind mode which allows the operator to use the welding helmet in between welding. In addition using grind mode saves time because there is no need for the operator to swap between helmet and safety glasses.
MIG Welding Gloves are also an essential welding apparel as they provide maximum protection and also comfort while welding. WIA's premium quality MIG gloves are the welders choice when it comes to hand protection.
Not only should we consider our outer body protection, but also that our lungs are protected against welding fumes. Designed specifically for this, WIA offers the Vortex PAPR system for fume exctraction and purifying.
