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. 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 specifically for welders to handle tough industrial environments.
When it comes to safety, a good quality Auto Darkening welding helmet is a must. Miller’s safety range includes the Digital Elite and Digital Infinity helmets. Both feature the latest ClearLight lens technology and offer high quality headgear with an ergonomic design. Together these features provide a clearer, better view of the weld and maximise comfort for the welder operator. In addition, they 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.
Both Miller and WIA Auto-darkening helmets feature a range of attributes including:
When it comes to welding safety MIG welding gloves are an essential welding apparel as they provide maximum protection and comfort while welding. WIA's premium quality MIG gloves are the welders choice when it comes to hand protection.
Not only should you consider your outer body protection when welding, but also that our lungs are protected against welding fumes and particles also. Using a welding helmet with a powered air purifying system will offer such protection. Designed specifically for this, WIA offers the Vortex PAPR system for fume extraction and purifying. This PAPR System will extract the welding gas from the air to ensure that the person performing the welds gets adequate respiratory protection. Over time a reusable respirator such as a the PAPR system is far more reliable than disposable respirators.
It is also important to know that autodarkening welding helmets such as the Miller Digital Infinity series welding helmet can be used for protection whilst plasma cutting as well. Although the higher shades may be too dark for plasma cutting, #5 shade can be used and is within the safe range for plasma cutting.
WIA specialises in a wide range of welding safety equipment to ensure that workplace accidents or injuries are kept to an absolute minimum.
