19. Sep 2018

The “Guardian“ series of battery-powered, auto-darkening welding helmets consists of three types. All of them meet the safety and durability requirements laid down in relevant CE and ANSI standards. They all feature a high impact nylon shell and comfortable headgear with longitudinal and angular adjustments. The helmets are available in Böhler Welding and UTP Maintenance brand design.

The “Guardian50“ is the universal welding helmet for multi-process situations. It features a larger than usual viewing area of 50 mm x 100 mm and a higher optical clarity rating of 1/1/1/2 according EN 379. With four sensors and a darkening filter shade 4, 9-13, it automatically adapts to the light intensities from the SMAW, GMAW, GTAW and FCAW process, the amperage level and the shielding gases used. Unique in its class is the use of “True Blue Color“ technology which shows the welding in natural colours, rather than the greenish view from standard ADF filters. A very handy extra feature is the external switch to change to grinding mode.

The “Guardian62“ is the universal welding helmet for multi-process situations. Its unusual light weight of 490 g makes it very comfortable to wear. Unique in its class is automatic darkening in the lower filter shade range 5 to 9, making it also suited for oxy-fuel welding and torch brazing (4, 5-9, 9-13). With a viewing area of 62 mm x 98 mm it offers a further improved sight compared with the “Guardian50“, while having the same high optical clarity rating of 1/1/1/2 according EN379. It also features an external switch to change to grinding mode.

The “Guardian62F“ offers the same performance as the “Guardian62“ , but is additionally equipped with a flip visor making it very suited for welding applications involving frequent grinding.
