Latest Trends in Welding Helmets
When you’re out there welding, the last thing you want is to go blind. That’s why you wear eye protection on the job. Yet there’s something funny about how most welding helmets, while protecting your valuable eyes from harmful light frequencies, end up causing momentary color blindness. Wearing these kind of welding supplies brings the unfortunate side-effect of missing out on certain details in your work. Luckily there is new technology available from Miller Welders that solves this age-old workplace vision issue faced by many welders in the Atlanta, GA region and beyond.
ADVANCES IN LIGHT SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY FOR WELDING GEAR
In a previous blog, Sidney Lee Welding Supply reviewed the basics in what to look out for when acquiring personal protective equipment like the all-important welding helmet. In this blog we’d like to introduce the concept of “light state” so we can help you understand how Miller Welders has innovated their field of welding equipment.
NEW TECH FROM MILLER WELDERS HELPS YOU BE A BETTER WELDER
Your eyes will thank you when you look through helmets featuring Miller’s new ClearLight lens technology. This development allowed Miller’s creators of welding equipment to achieve the light state rating of 3.0. What does this mean? The lower the number rating, the better – bringing the light state down from as high as 13 with conventional helmets, this all-time low light state means that you are eliminating that much less visible light from your field of vision during the weld. This means there is a broader range of the color spectrum reaching your eyes. Practically speaking this allows you to have more clarity with less eye strain. You can discern more details while staying more relaxed, avoiding injuries – of both the fumbled-hand variety and the more common eye-strain type! Statistics show that tens of thousands of welders experience damaged vision each year in the United States. Don’t become a statistic – upgrade your welding equipment instead!
