Welding Protection involves products which protect the welder from welding related hazards. It is mandatory for a welder to wear necessary protective equipment for their own safety. Welding protection involves product range from head to toe. Protective clothing needed for welding includes safety glasses, shoes, gloves, face protection, respiratory masks, helmet, general fire resistant clothing and leather protection to avoid being affected from welding sparks.
Oxy-fuel goggles do not protect your eyes from the intense ultraviolet radiation (UV) produced by the welding arc. So choosing the appropriate lens or filter plate for eye protection is just as important in preventing eye injury.
