Fiberglass Welding Helmets

TOUGH HELMETS FOR TOUGH JOBS
Specially formulated SUPERGLAS® material and rugged construction meets the needs of the most demanding welding environments. Self-extinguishing, smooth helmets deflect sparks and spatter. Reinforced crown, throat and edges resist cracking. All operating parts can be easily and economically replaced to lower service life cost. Full size, curved bottom design accommodates OSHA required protective spectacles; respirators and hearing protection while blocking smoke and fumes. Also available in straight front style for extended throat and chest protection. A broad selection of sizes and styles provides a performance level and a price point for any process or application.
EXCEPTIONAL COMFORT
As tough as SUPERGLAS® helmets are, they are easy on the welder. Extremely lightweight. Equipped with Fibre-Metal's classic 3-C free floating headgear that balances and stabilizes the helmet while providing multiple adjustments for individual fit, feel and a better view of the work. A well protected, comfortable welder stays on the job longer and produces more no matter how tough the job.

Tigerhood Classic - Thermoplastic Welding Helmets

SEE THE DIFFERENCE QUALITY MAKES
TIGERHOOD® Classic contains the features that make lightweight thermo­plastic welding helmets popular with today's welders. What makes it stand out is its performance and comfort enhancing extras that help welders produce more with fewer injuries.
Molded from NORYL, job proven superior in welding related performance characteristics, TIGERHOOD® Classic is the workhorse of thermoplastic helmets. It maintains its high performance level across a wide spectrum of welding processes and working conditions.
TIGERHOOD® Classic has a high welder satisfaction rating because it helps welders do their job better. When welders do their job better - you gain a productivity edge.
EXCLUSIVE AIRFLOW DESIGN TIGERHOOD® Classic's unique design provides extended throat protection while blocking fumes and smoke from the face. Size and shape allows air to circulate, to help clear any smoke and fumes that seep in. Air circulation also evaporates perspiration in the perforated sweatband for a cooling effect. (If hazardous fumes are present. appropriate respirators must be worn.)

COLORS, GOLD AND SILVER COATING ALSO AVAILABLE
Molded-in colors eliminate chipping, peeling and fading. Smooth, seamless shell deflects sparks and spatter reducing the risk of burn through. Gold and silver coating exceeds standards for abrasion, adhesion, wear and weathering and deflects heat to lower the temperature for welder comfort. Also available in black, gray, blue, red and green. Can be imprinted. All models complete with shade 10 filter lens installed.
EXTRAORDINARY COMFORT
TIGERHOOD® Classic sets the standard for comfort. Its exclusive 3-C, free floating head­gear with multiple wearing adjustments; and its ability to comfortably accommodate protective spectacles and respirators, improves welders quality of work life. Comfortable welders have less downtime and produce more each working day. Available with shade 10 filter plate installed.

Tigerhood High Performance ADF
ADF Filters 999HPF Welding Helmet

PUT ADF TECHNOLOGY TO WORK
A quality Fibre-Metal welding helmet with auto darkening filter lens (ADF) increases productivity, improves quality, reduces downtime and rework, lowers injury and workers compensation costs.
RUGGED, RELIABLE PERFORMANCE TIGERHOOD® HIGH PERFORMANCE
ADF helmets are engineered to provide exceptional performance across the whole spectrum of arc welding processes. Built­in ruggedness and advanced technology ensure that they work the first time and every time all shift long.
PRODUCTIVITY IMPROVEMENT
Because TIGERHOOD® HIGH PERFORMANCE ADF's reduce downtime, help welders make more and better welds, with less rework, productivity gains from 30% to 50% are common. Available in fixed filter shades or selectable filter shades for use when a welder changes processes or amperages frequently.

DEPENDABLE, STABLE, "INTELLIGENT" TECHNOLOGY
Leading edge, " intelligent" lens technology distinguishes between welding arcs and extraneous sources of light. State-of-the art interface between sensors and electronic controls results in stable, reliable performance and one of the industry's lowest frequency of repair and highest welder satisfaction ratings. Switching speed is many times faster than international standards require. Touch pad controls inside the helmet allow for shade selection, low, high sensitivity and on/off.
OPTICAL QUALITY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Optical quality is the most important performance characteristic of an ADF lens. TIGERHOOD® HIGH
PERFORMANCE ADF's have the highest optical quality available. Switching speed occurs before welding commences. But a welder must be able to see clearly while welding to maximize weld quality and productivity. HIGH PERFORMANCE ADF's provide a clear, unobstructed view in both the light and dark state. Unique 90 x 110mm Glassholder.
