Protecting Your Eyes
Sacramento Welding Supply
In the welding industry, eye injuries are very common. Welders get eye injuries because they do not wear eye protection, or they do not wear the right kind of protection for the job. To help welders prevent serious eye injuries, here are five of the best goggles in the industry this year.
Miller Electric Shade 5.0: These are the best safety goggles in the industry. They weigh in at 14.4 ounces. They have a customer-friendly wraparound frame design that ensures a snug fit. It has 99.9% UV protection, meets ANZI Z87.1 standards, and comes with reflective anti-scratch lens coating. The one downside is that the lenses may not be dark enough for arc welding.
ATHERMAL Shade 10: With these high optical quality goggles welders will get the darkest shade lenses available on the market. These goggles have dimensional stability resistance to radiation, scratch resistance, a grey-green lens color that assures observation without fatigue, replaceable polycarbonate lenses, and a very comfortable fit with adjustable earpieces. The one downside is that it fits very snug to the face and might not fit over regular glasses.
Jackson 3004761: These goggles have soft-touch templates, 99.9% UV protection, and are CE compliant. They are lightweight and meet the ANZI Z87.1 + Impact standard. The one downside is that they are not suitable for plasma torch or arc welding as they do not offer enough protection peripherally.
