Our range of PlasmaSAFE protective glasses are available in either
GREEN for plasma cutting or BLUE for gas flux brazing and aluminium welding.


Plasma cutting, unlike gas cutting, is an electric arc and which emits intense visible and invisible (UV and infrared) radiation. It is therefore a requirement that employers provide, for all operator’s, the correct and proper eye protection.

PlasmaSAFE GREEN cutting glasses help companies within the plasma cutting industry meet the legal requirements for the safe use of UV light in the workplace, as specified under The Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010, and which brought into law in the UK the European Physics Agents (Artificial Optical Radiation 2006/25/EC) Directive.

PlasmaSAFE GREEN shade 8 glasses, meet the recommended standards for plasma cutting protection as shown in the table below. They are lightweight, comfortable, operator friendly and are complete with side shields. They are extremely durable yet priced similarly to that of a more common, but less effective, bulky welders headshield. 

  Gas welding goggles should NEVER be used for plasma

cutting as they incorporate standard Gas Welding Filter lenses. 

Plasma cutting is an Electric arc!!

You can’t feel retinal damage until it’s too late. If you damaged your retina, there's no pain, and the only way you know is when your eyesight starts to degrade. By the time you see an optician about the problem, the damage is permanent

PlasmaSAFE shade 5 Cobalt Blue lensed spectacles are ideal for both gas flux brazing and aluminium welding. When used with the gas fluxer process these Cobalt Blue glasses help operators see the green flame produced with the gas flux more easily and will also show when excess acetylene is being used. 

Also available in a larger format for fitting over perscription glasses

PlasmaSAFE Cobalt Blue glasses also then help remove the orange glare associated with aluminium welding.
