The ultimate protection against ultraviolet and infrared rays present in the welding environment. Reflects harmful infrared rays while staying cooler than a conventional green filter plate. Precision ground, edged, and shaded to be optically correct with a safe and proper fit. Industry standard 2" x 4-1/2" size makes these lenses the perfect replacement for most passive welding helmets and cutting goggles.
Selecting The Proper Lens: As a rule of thumb, start with a shade that is too dark to see the weld zone. Then, go to a lighter shade which gives a sufficient view of the weld zone without going below the minimum.

** Shade #14 can be safely used during a solar eclipse. See excerpt from NASA below:
"Viewing with Protection -- Experts suggest that one widely available filter for safe solar viewing is number 14 welder's glass. It is imperative that the welding hood houses a #14 or darker filter. Do not view through any welding glass if you do not know or cannot discern its shade number. Be advised that arc welders typically use glass with a shade much less than the necessary #14. A welding glass that permits you to see the landscape is not safe. Inexpensive eclipse glasses have special safety filters that appear similar to sunglasses, but these do permit safe viewing."
