How to Choose the Best Welding Screen

How to Choose the Best Welding Screen

Welding screens come in quite the variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Welding screens are beneficial in welding workspaces where there is arc welding or metal grinding that gives off sparks. These activities are harmful to the naked eye, so it is super important that curtains or welding screens are used to protect you and your vision. 

Not only will welding screens protect your vision but they will protect those around you that may be working in the same area. Welding screens create a designated area for welding, reduce noise, prevent spread of high temperatures and fumes, and keep everyone safe overall.

So, how does one go about choosing the best welding screen to suit their needs and work environment? And why are there so many different color options?! 

Any color welding screen is going to offer protection, but knowing what kind of welding you will be doing is the first thing to consider when choosing a color and will give you the most benefits. The main difference between the colors is the level of visibility offered: ranging from zero visibility to high visibility.

OPAQUE - Zero Visibility

DARK GREEN - Low Visibility

RED - Medium Visibility

GRAY - Medium Visibility

BLUE - Medium Visibility

ORANGE - Medium Visibility

YELLOW - High Visibility

The lower the visibility, the more protection you will have while welding or passing by a welding workspace. If you opt for a higher visibility, you will still remain protected but will be able to see through the welding screens at the areas surrounding your workspace. We recommend having multiple screen colors on hand so that you may change them at your leisure. 

Now that we've covered the basics of welding screens, you'll be able to choose one that best fits your needs. We offer a huge selection on welding screens and curtains! Check them out here.
