3M™ Speedglas™ Heavy Duty Welding Helmet G5-01

Upgrade your protection

Guided by Welders, trusted by welders

Trust in a brand can’t be built overnight. It takes years to become known and even longer to be trusted. Almost 40 years ago in 1981 the Speedglas brand released the first ever auto-darkening welding helmet and has consistently set the benchmark ever since. While other products and brands have come and gone, the Speedglas brand, guided by welders, has continued to drive innovation and lead from the front. The 3M™ Speedglas Welding Helmet Series 9100 and the 3M™ Adflo™ Powered Air Respirator have reached legendary status within the welding industry and our 5th product generation is set to change the game forever. Speedglas is the brand of choice for professional welders and remains the world’s leading brand of personal protective equipment for welders.

More than a helmet.

QWS has been the sole agent for the Speedglas brand in Australia and New Zealand for over 20 years and continues to support welders in the field. QWS still stocks and sells consumable spare parts for the Speedglas 9000 series which was released in 1996 (over 20 years ago). This is a testament to the quality and longevity of Speedglas products and also the support that you receive when you own a Speedglas helmet.

Welding fume: understand the risks and how to protect yourself.

In March 2017, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reclassified welding fume as ‘carcinogenic to humans’. ‘Welders present, on average, a 43% increased risk of lung cancer when compared with those who have never welded or been exposed to welding fume’1. An unprotected welder operating within the Australian and New Zealand exposure standards for general welding fume (5 mg/m3) could inhale up to 11 grams of a known carcinogen per year. Speedglas welding helmets with the Adflo powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) can provide air over 50 times cleaner than the air inhaled by an unprotected welder. When compared to disposable and reusable half facemask respiratory protection, PAPRs provide superior respiratory protection and do not require fit-testing.

I currently use a Speedglas powered air system.
