Welders: Introducing 3M™ Speedglas™ 100 Graphic Series Welding Helmets – Women's Collection Welding Helmets Designed Expressly for Women
The 3M Occupational Health and Environmental Safety Division (OH&ESD) is pleased to announce the introduction of the 3M™ Speedglas™ 100 Graphic Series Welding Helmets - Women's Collection.
With this launch 3M becomes the first company in the world to offer a collection of welding helmets with graphics designed expressly for women. The design team took direct inspiration from women welders, resulting in designs that express a characteristic 'welding personality' but with a little more feminine expression. These helmets give women welders the opportunity to express themselves without sacrificing quality or safety while welding. Four distinct designs are available as part of this collection: Skull Jewels, Steel Rose, Steel Eyes, and Wild-N-Pink.
Besides a stunning appearance, these helmets also feature an ergonomic headband that accommodates smaller head sizes. Each of these designs is available with an auto-darkening lens (ADF), and offers the same protection, comfort and performance that the Speedglas brand is known for.
