Arc Safe Welding Screens - Welding Workshop Protection

Arc Safe Welding Screens - Welding Workshop Protection

How Do They Work and how can they protect your welding team and the workshop?

The ArcSafe welding screen is manufactured from vinyl film, processed with a colour dye, a flame retardant and ultra violet absorber. The dye consumes and filters the blue light brightness associated with the electric arc welding process. The material surface acts as a reflector, causing the arc to appear larger and less bright, thus reducing glare to the eyes. The light is also scattered in different directions, creating a fluorescent light. This causes the pupil to constrict and shut out excess glare, thus reducing light to the retina.

Colours and Luminance

ArcSafe welding screens are available in three colours: Red, Green and Amber. The luminance Transmittance is the ratio of the luminance of a source of light when viewed through a curtain or screen, to the luminance of that source when viewed directly.

ArcSafe Red Category C3 - ArcSafe Amber Categor C3 - ArcSafe Green Category C5

Benefits of ArcSafe

ArcSafe welding screens absorb the dangerous ultra violet light that is emitted from the arc welding process and also offers these aditional benefits:

  • Surrounding your welding situations with safety
  • Protecting your co-workers and other people frm the painful effects of accidental welding flash
  • Safely and quickly defining hazardous welding areas
  • Allowing safe observation for safety check of welding operations
  • All seams are welded, not sewn, for extra durability and strength
