3M Speedglas G5-01 Welding Helmet With Adflo

The latest and greatest fresh air welding helmet is here. Bullet proof design, max spec optical colour clarity, field of vision larger than the gaps your fitter leaves for you, and the highest protection factor EVER from a PAPR set up. 

Developed with extensive input from welders working at high amperages who need to grind frequently, the 3M™ Speedglas Heavy-Duty Welding Helmet G5-01 is adaptable to your unique needs and working environment.

    Selling Features of the G5-01:

    Variable Color Auto Darkening Lens:

    The ADF in the G5-01VC has the unique feature of being able to change it's coloring. Some helmets have a green tinge, some a blue tinge, others an orange tinge. With the variable color technology, you can choose which color you want your lens to appear. This way no matter which work environment you are in, or what type of job you are doing, you can select the color style that is best suited to your needs. This ADF goes up to shade level DIN 14, which is great if you ever need to weld at high amperages.

    3M Adflo Fresh Air PAPR:

    The 3M Adflo blower included with this product is famous for it's rugged design, and exceptional air filtration. Patented design allows for stacking of multiple filters to guarantee the highest level of protection, even when working with chemicals.

    Controllable Air Flow:

    With a series of vents that have controls on the outside of the helmet, air flow can be directed in an infinite variety of ways. This ensures no matter what position you are in you will get air flow where you want it.

    Standardized Lenses and Filters

    The G5-01 takes the same outer lenses as the old 9100 series welding helmets, and the same air filters as the older generation of Adflo blower units. This means the helmet is fully compatible with the lenses and filters supplied at your work.

    Exceptional Build Quality:

    If you have ever met someone that swears by 3M welding helmets, you may notice how old their lid is. That's because Speedglas makes the most rugged, tough, built to last welding helmets on the market right now. When you buy a G5-01VC, you get a brand new top of the line helmet that you can trust will last long enough to become gray in the hair and long in the tooth.

    Wide Range of Accessories and Add-Ons:

    The G5-01 can be made custom to your needs. There is a wide range of fabric, leather, and even high-viz add-ons that attach directly to this helmet to provide protection when you need it, and are quickly removable when it's not required. There is no other helmet that has this many custom accessories available.

    3M Official Selling Features:

    • Visibility of the welding spot thanks to 3M™ Speedglas™ Natural Colour in the light state, and variable colour in the dark state
    • Hours of powerful lighting from the new helmet-mounted task light (optional accessory)
    • The highest respiratory safety classifications for powered air respirators (TH3) and supplied air regulators (B3).
    • Protection against radiation, sparks and spatter with the new, high-coverage helmet design and six different coverage configurations using helmet accessories.
    • No need to compromise on comfort! New helmet adjusts to get you closer to your weld, while you personalize your airflow patterns.
    • Lightweight for added user comfort.  The helmet assembly weighs less than 36 ounces with the standard APF 25 shroud.  When the APF 1000 head and neck coverage shroud is added, total weight increases to 44 ounces keeping it as one of the lightest APF 1000 systems available.  (CSA Z94.4 Assigned Protection Factor)

    Notes From The President's Test Run:

    • The weight is much less than the old 3M set ups
    • The head gear is more comfortable than the 9100 series
    • Built tough, 3M did not go cheap on this helmet
    • The new variable color lens is very clear
    • The smart phone app makes changing settings much simpler than other flip front helmets
    • Being able to control air flow direction and location is a game changer. It's like air conditioning in the summer
    • The grinding shield is huge

    Overnight shipping and payment plans are available.

      Its ok.

      Doesn't resolve the black booger problem unfortunately, i question how effective it is compared to a half mask respirator. It is comfortable to wear and the airflow is refreshing, the ADF is excellent.

      Good quality helmet

      Used it for 1/2 a day now seems to be as advertised. Good customer service 👍👍

      Awesome helmet and customer service!

      Welding Helmet protects you well from toxic fumes. I'm amazed how light it is when wearing it. I put my old basic helmet down and now I wear this one everyday on the job. I got it for an amazing price and comes with lots of extras too. Trevor was great to deal with and very informative. Thanks again.
