Our Welding Gloves and Gauntlets offer excellent protection against spatter and heat when welding. For example, our Heavy Duty Leather Welding Gauntlets are made from split cow hide leather with Kevlar stitching making them hard wearing and durable. They are certified to EN 12477, Type A, for high protection against heat.

We have a range of Welding Goggles, Masks and Helmets on offer, including Gas Welding Goggles with Flip Lenses which have clear polycarbonate safety lenses and shade 5 flip up lenses, giving the wearer excellent protection when welding. We also offer a Hand Held Welding Mask which comes with a shade 10 lens and features high impact resistant polypropylene for protection and durability. It conforms to BS EN 175 for protection of eyes and face from optical radiation and welding hazards.

If you’re seeking a helmet rather than a mask, our Auto Darkening Welding Helmet is the ideal solution. These helmets are contoured with fully adjustable headbands for a comfortable fit. They feature a solar panel supply and adjustable sensitivity and delay controls for switching light to dark. They conform to BS EN 379 and 175 for personal eye and face protection when welding.
