Hard hat and welding helmet system uses pivot mechanism so helmet nests over hard hat when raised. Low center-of-gravity helps to reduce neck strain and make it easier to move around. No filter. Accepts all 3M™ Speedglas™ Filters 9000 Series.
Pivot mechanism allows helmet to nest over the hard hat
The 3M™ Speedglas™ ProTop System is a hard hat and welding helmet combination designed for welders working in areas with overhead hazards. Traditional welding hard hats create a very high center-of-gravity when the welding helmet is raised so the user may feel off-balance, and the leveraged weight may put additional strain on neck muscles. On the other hand, the ProTop System's pivot mechanism has two sets of axes: one to lift the welding helmet away from the welder’s face, and another axis to “nest” the welding helmet down low over the hard hat, in a balanced, secure position. Ratcheting headband for fast, secure, top-of-the-head sizing.
