Haunted Houses, ghosts & goblins, headless horsemen, and creepy clowns make October a scary month, but there’s all kinds of scary things lurking in your weld shop year-round.
Protecting yourself from flames, sparks, and miscellaneous flying objects doesn’t have to be a scary thing! Here’s a rundown of the basics:
Welding Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Helmets and Head Gear
A welding helmet is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of welding PPE. Other than a torch, a helmet (like the one worn by Arc-Zone PRO Partner, Nick Mishler- pictured left) is the accessory most associated with welding.
From passive to professional auto-darkening welding helmets, we’ve got what you need to protect your vision. If you need help selecting the proper PPE, start with this handy guide, “Choosing Welding Helmets and Goggles.” And make sure you and everyone in your weld shop are keeping an eye on safety with our “Eye Care for Welders” (pdf) guide. Arc-Zone also has safety goggles, helmet bags for welders on the go, cheater lenses for welders of a certain age, and replacement parts for your helmet. Continue reading

Start with a top quality TIG/GTAW welding torch engineered by a reputable manufacturer (like CK Worldwide or Weldcraft/Miller) with attention to craftsmanship. The best torches are made with the best materials to avoid problems associated with weld quality, such as gas leakage that can draw atmosphere into the weld zone. Continue reading
