Your world is curved,
Introducing the 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmet G5-02 with the world’s first curved auto-darkening welding lens.
New 3M™ Speedglas™ Curved Glass Technology follows the shape of your head to maximise your natural range of vision.
Combining advanced True-View Technology with a 100% wider field of view, the G5-02 takes vision into a new dimension.
- Designed specifically for TIG welders, the G5-02 helmet creates a new world standard for precision viewing. This is a helmet for professional TIG welders wanting to stay 'ahead of the curve' doing high-performance, critical work.
- Feedback from professional TIG welders was unanimous; a wide view was much higher rated than a taller view.
- The only way to achieve wider views without making the helmet wider was by inventing a curved welding lens.
- The combination of the curved welding lens and a slimmer helmet can help reduce reflections and other distracting glare inside the welding helmet.
Get wider views in a slimmer, lighter helmet.
Previously, you had to compromise: either a slim, lightweight helmet or a wide view. With the curved G5-02 welding lens, there are no compromises.
A thinner glass pack makes the helmet super lightweight and bringing the lens closer to the welder's face improves overall weight distribution.
A view like no other.
With our clearest light state ever, curved vision and advanced 3M™ Speedglas™ True-View technology the G5-02 optics must be experienced to be believed. Colours appear brighter and more realistic in both the light and dark states. And a more realistic view enables better control over your arc.
Is the curved glass more fragile than flat glass?
The glass we use in the G5-02 lens is extremely flexible. And the lens is certified using the same, standardised impact resistance tests used for traditional flat welding lenses: The welding lens and protection plate are compliant with AS/NZS1337.1, meaning resistance to high speed particles up to 45m/s (medium impact rated).
More importantly, you're benefitting from our finest optics ever, due in part to a "glass pack" that's 1/3 as thick as our thinnest flat lens.
Curved consumables for the curved lens.
For a slimmer helmet, we created consumables to optimise the view and comfort. If you can't see the detail you need, try one of our magnifying lenses. For the G5-02 helmet they are curved (of course) and available in x1.5, x2.0 and x2.5 strengths.SHOP CONSUMABLES
