Speedglas ProTop, a combination of safety helmet, welding shield, and auto-darkening lens, is especially designed for welders working in areas with overhead hazards, such as cranes, protruding beams and moving machinery.
A perfectly balanced safety helmet for welders.
The key to the ProTop system is the exclusive pivot mechanism that connects the welding visor to the safety helmet.
Traditional welding safety helmets create a very high center-of-gravity when the welding visor is raised; as a result, the user feels off-balance, and the leveraged weight puts additional strain on neck muscles.
On the other hand, the ProTop pivot mechanism has two sets of axes: one to lift the welding visor away from the welder’s face, and another axis to “nest” the welding visor down low over the safety helmet, in a perfectly balanced, locked-down position. The welding visor automatically unlocks when the welder pulls it back down into position over the face.
