Every day welding sparks, heat, and normal wear-and-tear grind away at your welding helmet. The outer protection plate covers the welding filter from sparks and dust. For maximum view and comfort, make it a regular habit to check and change the protection plates.
You can clean the welding filter and protection plates with a lint-free tissue or cloth. But when the plate becomes deeply pitted, scratched or too dirty to clean it is time to get a replacement plate. When welding more than 4 hours per day it’s typically needed once a week. Higher-than-normal levels of heat and sparks will require more frequent replacement.

More than 35 years ago, we went to the shipyards of Sweden to study welders working conditions. We found skilled craftsmen blindly striking arcs as they continually nodded their shields down.
From that point on, we committed ourselves to developing tools that would forever improve the world of the welder. Your thoughts and opinions are the bottom line in our continuous search for innovation. Please feel free to address any questions or comments you might have.
