Welding Safety Glasses
We carry other types of protective welding gear, including welding clothing, welding helmets, welding earmuffs, welding gloves and welding respirators.
Having the proper eye protection when performing any form of welding is essential. Your eyes, in particular your cornea, can become permanently damaged by exposure to extreme doses of ultraviolet light (cornea flash burn), such as from a welders arc. Cornea damage from a burn can cause changes in vision or loss of vision. Welding Glasses protect your eyes from high UV rays produced when performing cutting operations, torch brazing and torch soldering and a welding helmet is not required. These safety glasses for welding DO NOT have the same protection level as a helmet and should NOT be worn instead of a welding mask when arc welding.
Welding Safety Glasses come with an IR (Infra-Red) filters that protect your eyes from UV rays and flash burns, while also offering a high level of impact-protection from flying objects associated with cutting, brazing and torch soldering. The Pyramex Onix Plus series glasses feature a flip-up filter lens with a clear lens so you don't have to completely remove the glasses in-between welds.
Welders Glasses are available in a variety of IR ratings to meet your needs. Don't sell your vision short, stay protected today!
The Occupational Safety and Health Standards (OSHA) standard 1910.133(a)(1) states that the employer shall ensure that each affected employee uses appropriate eye or face protection when exposed to eye or face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids or caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors, or potentially injurious light radiation.
