weldcote welding lensClick image to enlargeWeldcote’s auto-darkening filters feature clear, true-colour blue, high-definition technology that enhances the visible spectrum for optimal clarity and reduced eye fatigue.


Designed for passive-style welding helmets, the auto-darkening filter (retrofit lens) provides users with vision accuracy, light diffusion and consistent shade. 


The filters fit all passive style helmets that feature a standard 2 X 4 passive filter lens, and some auto-darkening helmets, depending on style.
With a view area of 3.62-inches by 1.42-in. (5.15-square-inches) and a thickness of 0.2-in., the fixed filter is available in 9, 10, 11 or 12 shade number. 


Weldcote’s new filters have two independent arc sensors, a near instant (0.3 second) switching time, a solar cell with a nonreplaceable lithium battery backup. The filters come with a two-year warranty and meet ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.3 and CE EN 379 standards.
