For many years, welding was mainly the preserve of men. But that is now changing. Many more women all over the world are deciding to take the electrode into their own hands and become welders. 3M is now the first company in the world to bring welding helmets onto the market with special graphic design designed specifically for women: the 3M™ Speedglas™ 100 Series Women’s Collection of Graphic Welding Helmets.
Surveys have shown us what is important to women working in the tough world of welding:
- They are proud of their work, and are passionate about it
- They want to express their unique creativity through welding
- And they want to face the challenge of performing a job that was a purely masculine domain for far too long
In the welding sector, the helmet is not only an item of safety equipment. Many welders see their helmets as an expression of their personality. They want to be proud of the mask that they wear with pride.
All of this has been considered in the design of the new welding helmets for women that have been developed by 3M in cooperation with the company ERGONOMIE-DESIGNIFP. The design acknowledges the fact that women are often experts in the area of fine and precision welding work, and features patterns and graphics that reflect this:
- “Steel rose”: a rose pattern
- “Steel eyes”: an ocean of flame
- “Wild-n-Pink”: plants twining round barbed wire
- “Skull Jewels”: a glittering treasure trove
We are certain that almost every female welder will find a helmet in our range whose design fits her personality.
Of course, the masks not only look good. Every detail has been thought out. For example, the helmets are provided with an ergonomic headstrap that can also be easily adjusted to fit small head sizes.
3M has been setting standards in the welding sector for many years with its Speedglass helmets. Users who select products from this range decide in favour of enhanced work quality and performance: from safety, through comfort and innovative ideas up to aftersales service.
