  • Welding Equipment Made in Sweden
    • All Speedglas welding helmets are made in Sweden with every lens still checked by hand.
  • Positive Pressure Protection from Welding Fume
    • Super comfortable face seal follows the contours of both the helmet and the face to provide a positive pressure seal from pollutants. The exclusive airflow pattern evenly distributes filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder.
  • Huge Flip-Up Clear & Curved Grinding Visor
    • A smooth flip-up function reveals a huge 170x100 mm clear grinding visor with 180 degree vision.
  • Speedglas True-View
    • Speedglas True-View has literally changed the way welders see, making what you see through the lens appear lighter, more detailed and colourful.
  • Largest Viewing Area Available
    • The huge Speedglas 9100XXi lens combined with the Speedglas peripheral SideWindows gives you the largest viewing area available on the market.
  • Speedglas SideWindows
    • Previously hidden peripheral hazards (beams, obstacles and other workers) are now visible through two, shade 5 side lenses (conventional shade 13 protection).
  • Highest Optical Rating
    • Speedglas welding helmet series 9100 gives the welder the highest possible optical classification (1/1/1) and is compliant with AS/NZS1338.1.
  • Unrivalled Arc Detection and Switching
    • Photo-sensors capable of detecting an arc down to an industry-leading 1 amp with centre sensor for TIG applications.
  • All Applications with Multiple Modes
    • With shades 3, 5, 8, 9-13 and multiple mode settings you can weld, cut, grind and tack, indoors and outdoors even with a completely hidden arc.
  • Auto-On
    • With Auto-On your welding helmet is instantly ready to weld; programmed to your last used welding setting.
  • Compliant with all relevant Australian & New Zealand Standards
    • Compliant with Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1337.1 (high impact face protection), AS/NZS1338.1 (eye protection) & AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).
  • Comfort & Ergonomics
    • This harness sets the industry benchmark for comfort and ergonomics. The harness distributes weight perfectly, avoids sensitive areas and allows for complete customisation to your head.
  • The Signature Speedglas Silver Front
    • The silver front on a Speedglas auto-darkening welding helmet is not just a design feature, it also reflects heat from the weld keeping you cool and comfortable.
  • Magnification Lens Holder
    • Built-in holder for magnifying lenses makes attaching the lens easier and optimises the position for better vision.
  • Speedglas Personal Protective Equipment is a long term investment
    • All Speedglas 9100 lenses have custom designed multi-function programmed logic chips that minimise the number of discrete surface mounted components; leading to improved reliability and longevity.
  • Industry Leading Warranty Protection
    • Speedglas 9100 features a revolving three year warranty. Experience a problem with the helmet in the first three years and your 3 year warranty protection starts again. Speedglas helmets are built to last.

The 3M™ Versaflo™ Supplied Air Regulator (SAR)

  • High Constant Flow Rate for Welder’s Protection
    • Lightweight belt mounted regulator with high airflow rates (170 to 305 litres per minute) makes the 3M V-500E regulator ideal for hot and strenuous welding conditions.
  • Because you only have one pair of lungs
    • The V-500E compressed air regulator provides a required minimum protection factor of 100+ for mechanically and thermally generated particles and conforms to Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).
  • Exclusive airflow pattern
    • The exclusive airflow pattern within the Speedglas respiratory welding helmets evenly distributes a constant level of filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder. A diffuser spreads out the airflow pattern for your maximum comfort.
  • Welder’s Breathing Air Filtration
    • The airline supply (supplied via a compressor) must be of breathable quality meeting the performance standards of AS/NZS1716. Oil, mist, water vapour or non-toxic, unpleasant odours are removed from the compressed air through use of a breathing air filtration system which connects to the V-500E regulator through a breathable air hose. Please view the brochure for more detailed information or contact AWS.
  • Self-Adjusting Breathing Air Hose with Quick Release
    • The Quick Release Swivel (QRS) allows for one handed connection and release. The self-adjusting length means the breathing hose is always kept close to the welder to prevent snagging on surrounding objects.
  • Innovative & Quiet
    • The 3M V-500E supplied air regulator features an integrated low flow warning whistle and a silencer that reduces the regulator’s noise level to less than 65 dBA – the equivalent of a typical conversation.
