Lincoln Electric Offers Personal Protection With Welding Apparel Line

June 2011 Vol. 66 No. 6

Lincoln’s new personal protection clothing line, Red Line Welding Apparel, offers the ideal gear for welding in the field.

The new Red Line apparel product group includes gloves, jackets, caps and safety glasses. Five types of welding gloves are available in premium leather MIG/stick, traditional MIG/stick, leather TIG, heat-resistant and full leather Steel Worker gloves.

Four jacket options effectively protect the arms and upper body. They offer flame retardant cloth panels to keep the welder cool, as well as heavy-duty leather panels in high spatter exposure, high wear areas. Customers can choose from cloth, heavy-duty leather or hybrid cloth/ leather jackets.

For wearing under the welding helmet, the product group includes doo rags, beanies and caps that stylishly and effectively protect the top of the head. Made from flame retardant material, they are comfortable, include athletic mesh lining for fast sweat evaporation and are machine washable.

Additionally, four pairs of indoor safety glasses and four for outdoor applications round out the Red Line personal protection welding apparel line. Welders can choose from clear, shaded and mirrored lenses that offer maximum protection and comfort. All eyewear meet ANSI Z87.1+ and CSA Z94.3 standards and offer 99.9 percent UV-A, UV-B and UV-C protection.

Red Line personal protection apparel is designed to work in tandem with the comprehensive line of Lincoln Electric VIKING auto-darkening welding helmets, including the new 1840 and 2450 series. 888.355.3213, www.lincolnelectric.com
