Cepro - International Market Leaders in Welding Safety

by Rapid Welding 19. February 2020 11:35

When welding outdoors, suitable protection is needed to safeguard welders and those in proximity, not only from the welding process itself but also from weather conditions such as rain, wind and sun - for our UK customers, if you can remember what the sun feels like, bonus points for you!

Outdoor working conditions are noticeably improved if a welding tent or umbrella are used, which can contribute to a reduction in sick leave and an increase in welder comfort, safety and performance.

 Rapid can supply a large range of Cepro welding shelters and umbrellas.

Welding Umbrellas

Flame retardant with water repellent canvases. Carrying bag included.

Heavy Duty Welding Tents

Available in a variety of widths ranging from 190 cm to 300 cm.

 

 Cube Shelter

As well as welding shelters and umbrellas from Cepro, Rapid also supply a wide range of welding curtains, plates and strips, welding blankets, screens, insulation products, grinding and welding booths.
