5. 3M™ Speedglas™ ProTop Welding Shield

3M ID:
Speedglas ProTop Down  

A perfectly balanced safety helmet for welders.


The Speedglas™ ProTop welding shield, a combination of safety helmet, welding shield and auto-darkening filter, is especially designed for welders working in areas with overhead hazards, such as cranes, protruding beams and moving machinery.

The key to the Speedglas™ ProTop system is the exclusive pivot mechanism that connects the welding shield to the safety helmet. Traditional welding safety helmets create a heavy forward centre-of gravity when the shield is raised; as a result, the user feels off-balance, and the leveraged weight puts additional strain on neck muscles.

Features include:
- Welding shield with auto-darkening filter and safety helmet
- Various options of welding filters: fixed or variable shade, large or normal viewing area
- CO2 reduction and SideWindows option
- Heat reflecting silver front
