Welding helmet shape helps keep wearer cooler

May 9, 2013

Save Phace has introduced the Extreme Face Protector (EFP) Gen Y series of welding helmets, offering welding, grinding, and splash protection.

The helmets offer an adjustable 4/9-13 auto-darkening filter with grind mode integrated into a 180-degree viewing lens. The face-forming design helps the user get into tight spaces. The rounded shape doesn’t trap the welder's breath, making it 6 degrees cooler than other helmets, according to the manufacturer.

Features include a replaceable, sweat-absorbent headband and flexible, heat-resistant nylon helmet material. Three graphic options are available: Black Ice, Razor, and Twisted Soul. Each model is ANSI- and CE-approved.
