  • View your work with Speedglas natural colour technology – with variable colour options in dark state
  • Effective respiratory protection, offering the highest safety class for powered air TH3 system
  • No need to compromise on comfort, personalise your helmet with accessory configurations and use the helmet controls to adjust the respiratory airflow to your preferences 

Natural Colour Technology: A more natural light state

Speedglas have introduced a choice of two filter options, both filters are designed to minimize eye strain when switching from dark to light state, by using an intermediate shade.

G5-01VC 1/1/1/2

Adjustable dark shades 5 (cut) and 8 to 14. Variable shade technology, which colour level is best for you? To provide a better view of the weld puddle the variable colour technology gives you three options: natural, cool or warm tones for the dark state. Determine which colour tone provides you with the best viewing contrast for your welds and the most comfort for your eyes.


G5-01TW 1/1/1/1

Adjustable dark shades 5 (cut) and 8 to 13. Tack welding model.

When tack welding, this filter uses an intermittent shade 5 light state to help minimise eye strain during extended tack welding applications. If an arc is not struck within 2 seconds the welding filter will switch back to its normal light state, shade 3.


Take control of your flow, adjust your airflow

Comfort controlled by you, the helmet duct system allows you to direct the airflow to either your face, your visor or a combination of both. You can even adjust the amount of air coming from the top outlet vs. the two side outlets or choose a blend of both. Adjustment levels can be assessed to your personal needs which you can adjust while wearing the helmet.

Adflo powered air respiratory protection

TH3 rated respiratory protection from the robust Adflo respirator.
