Welding is rated as the #1 cause for eye injuries. More than three times more injuries occur in welding, when compared with the construction industry.
UV light has the potential of causing “Welder Flash” or ‘arc eye’, with welding torches being a common source. The flash burns welders may experience are essentially like sunburn in the eye. For this very reason, OSHA’s CFR 1910.252(b)(2) specifies that welder’ filter lens must meet the test for transmission of radiant energy. It also states that goggles or other suitable eye protection should be worn during all gas welding and oxygen cutting operations.
Welders demand high quality welding shades, keeping their eyes injury free form hazards such as burns and exposure to arc rays. Let MCR Safety protect your eyes!
MCR Safety filter shade lenses protect against ultraviolet and infrared radiation that is generated when working with molten metal and in welding, cutting, soldering, and brazing operations. Since welding generates some bright light, we know light transmission is an important topic. Just click on the filter shade below and we will show you all the styles we offer!
Below is a guide to help determining the correct filter shade for the application:
|Operation||Recommended Filter Shade|
|Light Cutting up to 1 Inch||3.0|
|Medium Cutting 1 to 6 Inches||5.0|
|Heavy Cutting more than 6 Inches||5.0|
|Gas welding, light, up to 1/8 Inch||5.0|
|Gas welding, medium, 1/8 to 1/2 Inch||5.0|
MCR Safety’s headgear and face shields offer superior protection from liquid splashes, flying metal, and hot welding sparks that would otherwise be damaging to the face.
Fogging is a top issue and concern for welders. Now, that problem is a thing of the past…. The 104PF is not only strong and adjustable, but it’s also coated using MAX6 anti-fog technology. The anti-fog coating is 6X more powerful than standard anti-fog. So those big temperature swings from entering and leaving a hot welding environment will not cause a face shield to fog up and block one’s ability to see.
