For the welders who have long beards, you will need to purchase a welding helmet that is capable of being a beard protector. We all know that hair gets easily catches fire and I must mention that facial hair is thinner than our hair on our head. A stray spark landing on your beard could turn into something worse like serious injuries to your face and neck. That’s why a welding helmet is important for a welder. One mustn’t weld without it. There;s a lot of risks in welding – safety and health risks.
A welders own Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is his or her own protection against anything that can harm. In the end, our greatest investment in our jobs is our bodies. If we don’t take care of our bodies, then we can’t do our jobs properly. Let’s take a look at this welding helmet from Amazon:

There’s only 8 of these in stock, so if you want one, go and add it to your cart quickly. The color in which this protective helmet is available in is only in silver. The size of this welding helmet is 60 cm X 30 cm X 30 cm. The material from which this welding helmet has been made from is aluminium fireproof fabric that has been especially made for this product. The visor material (which will protect your eyes from the heat and the stray sparks but won’t protect you from the bright light) is made from polycarbonate material that doesn’t melt quickly. It is heat resistant up to 800 degrees.
The material is also fire proof to avoid burn injury. It has a strong tensile strength, as well as tear strength and an abrasion resistance so it is not easy to cause hook. You will need to keep it in a dry and well ventilated place in order to prevent mildew and pollution. Keep in mind that before using the welding helmet, you should check it carefully. If there is damage, it is recommended that you stop using it immediately.
As for the brightness, maybe you can attach a removable tint on it so it will protect your eyes from brightness.
Here is a customer’s review about the welding helmet:
“At first I wasn’t really sure about this welding helmet because it looks funny but then I decided to just go with it since I needed protection not to look good. I’m not saying that the helmet looks ugly because it doesn’t really, it’s just not looking like the other ones you can find in the market. If you wanna stand out, then this helmet is one way to do it. I just had to buy a removable darkened visor which was a bummer really, because it’s another extra cost for me. After a week or so of using this, I discovered that this product is a little hot and I had to remove it every once in a while. Overall, I give this product three stars because its not that great but its not that bad either.” — ArtherDexterCowboy
