pure air

Hard work never felt so easy.

helix quattro – the slide-up welding helmet is now also available as a fresh air version: helix pure air quattro

helix quattro fits perfectly with optrel's helmet-independent fresh air system swiss air. But that's not all. Because now you can also weld, cut or grind with the helix pure air quattro as a fresh air helmet in combination with the ATEX-certified e3000X PAPR system.

Clean and fresh air is channelled directly into the helmet, where it circulates around your head, protecting you perfectly and keeping you pleasantly cool at the same time. This makes helix pure air the first helmet of its kind in the helix family.

An ATEX-certified PAPR system such as the e3000X provides you with clean and fresh air and protects you from the harsh reality of smoke, aerosols, dust and even harmful gases. And all this in combination with the usual advantages of helix: Lightweight, easy to adjust and perfectly balanced – thanks to the innovative slide-up technology.

No matter whether with swiss air or e3000X:

Industry standard
optrel helix field of view

The patented nose cutout brings the glare shield closer to your eyes. The result: a much larger field of vision and a clear separation between the mouth and eye area, which also prevents tarnishing of the protective lens.

    Twilight Function

    Sensitivity Adjustment

    <p>Bei ausgewählten expert-Produkten werden speziell beschichtete Filter eingesetzt, die eine bessere Sicht auf das Schweissobjekt ermöglichen. Die Farberkennung durch diese Art Filter wurde so optimiert, dass die Farben der Umgebung fast farbecht wahrgenommen werden können. Somit kann der Schweisser auch ohne Probleme rote LEDs der Schweissmaschine ablesen, ohne den Helm anzuheben was die Effizienz im Schweissprozess und die Sicherheit weiter fördert.</p>
