Lorch APR 900 XF full vision welding and grinding helmet 553.1100.1,   

High quality German welding equipment manufacturer Lorch have now produced their own range of fully automatic AutoProtect welding helmets, the complete range offers maximum protection and comfort only found on high end welding headshields at a fraction of the price. 

Highest safety rating for welding helmets: The helmet shell meets the requirements of the European standards EN 175 B.

The Lorch APR 900 XF uses the high performance automatic welding filter APR C850XF, which is a true colour rendering auto darkening filter with an extra large field of vision. This headshield is shade 3 in light and standby mode, shades 5-9 in the lower range and shades 10-14 in the upper range. 

The APR 900 XF helmet version has the advantage of being a divisible helmet with a visor that can be easily folded up along with the auto darkening filter. A curved protective window of clear polycarbonate with a larger field of vision remains on the inside. This still protects the welder well from particles and sparks while performing further work on the workpiece after welding.

The outer and inner helmet shells are disconnected from each other. The disconnected folding mechanism ensures that the inner helmet shell remains closed even when the outer shell is unfolded. This allows one-handed activation of a large, clear field of vision with maximum protection.

Perfect vision – thanks to the large grinding visor, A large viewing window offers greater peripheral vision. There is no need to move the head as frequently. Movements or even potential danger in the peripheral area can be perceived early.

Fitted with 4 sensors this headshield can be used as low down as 2 amps while Tig welding, 

The headshield itself has 4 point support to stop the front cover from being scratched, when placed face down on the bench. 

Extensive adjustment options for any head: Head circumference adjustment via a ratchet fastening knob at the back of the head, double strap construction for an integrated, stable fit, and longitudinal helmet adjustment to adjust to the shape of your face and your preference.

Sweatbands for the forehead and back of the head: Individual absorbent and padded sweatbands around the headband.

Locking in the upper and lower position: The helmet latches in the upper and lower settings to keep it in the respective position. The “speed” at which the helmet closes again can be adjusted independently of this.

Battery life: 4,000 h battery life with standard CR2032 batteries (2 pcs.). The batteries are housed inside the housing keeping them away from dust.
