Speedglas 9100 FX Welding Helmet with Flip-Up ADF Visor

Premium Helmet Designed with the Professional Welder in Mind

A step up from the Speedglas 9100, the 9100 FX offers increased versatility with a "flip-up" ADF, exposing a clear, wide-view grinding shield for when you have to switch back and forth between welding and non-welding tasks.
The exceptionally clear and large (8" x 4-1/4") grinding shield offers a greater field of view in all directions, while the smooth visor flip-up pivot mechanism assures effortless transition from welding to grinding modes.
The 9100 FX comes standard with Shade 5 SideWindows and a top-of-head head spark and spatter cover.
Fisheries offers the 9100 FX helmets in the two larger sized filter options
Suitable for all welding applications, the 9100 FX includes all of the other features of 3M's top-of-the-line 9100 Series, some of which are summarized below.
For more information, see the Speedglas 9100 entry in this catalog or, for even more details, view this entry on our website.
The breakthrough head suspension system is highly adjustable and perfectly balanced for surprising comfort and decreased fatigue.
The premium Speedglas Series 9100 Auto-Darkening Filters feature outstanding optical quality, uniform shading, and minimal distortion across the entire filter viewing area.
They provide constant protection from ultraviolet and infrared (UV/IR) radiation, and consistently switch from light to dark in less than 1/10,000 of a second.
Use for all arc welding processes: tack welding, stick, MIG, TIG, and plasma, as well as grinding
Exhaled air is channeled out via side exhaust vents - reduces heat, humidity, and fogging
Seven dark shades, including 9-13 (variable), 5 for gas welding/cutting, and 8 for micro-plasma or low-amp TIG
Four sensitivity levels for adjustment for various welding processes and ambient light levels
Outstanding low-amp TIG performance, even on settings as low as 1 amp
Any shade can be locked-in. For example, you can lock-in the light state shade 3 for grinding
Innovative "tack welding mode" reduces eyestrain
Viewing area 9100X: 2.1" x 4.2" (8.8 sq in)
Viewing area 9100XX: 2.8" x 4.2" (11.75 sq in) - 30% larger than any other Speedglas welding filter
Meets the requirements of CSA Z94.3 and the high impact requirements of ANSI Z87.1 - 2010
