how to buy WELDING lenses

Choosing the right welding lenses is crucial for ensuring optimal safety and performance during welding operations. Phillips Safety offers a diverse range of welding lenses tailored to meet various needs and preferences. In this guide, we’ll explore Phillips Safety’s extensive selection of welding lenses, including green, cobalt blue, gold, clear glass cover, alloweld glass, super blue drop-in, super magenta drop-in, and welding magnifier lenses. We’ll highlight key considerations to help you make an informed decision when purchasing welding lenses.

Green welding lenses offer a balanced shade that effectively shields the eyes from intense light and harmful radiation emitted during welding processes.

Ideal for general welding applications, green lenses provide comfortable viewing with reduced glare and ensure clarity in various work environments.

Cobalt blue welding lenses are engineered to provide superior protection against intense light and radiation while optimizing visual contrast.

With a deep blue tint, cobalt blue lenses offer enhanced clarity and contrast, ideal for tasks requiring precision and detail work.

Gold welding lenses offer a unique combination of protection and visibility, particularly in high-heat welding environments.

These lenses provide excellent infrared protection while maintaining color recognition, making them suitable for specialized welding applications.

Super blue drop-in lenses are used along with your regular welding lens, reducing eye strain and fatigue during prolonged welding tasks.

These lenses provide improved clarity and contrast, making them suitable for tasks requiring extended focus and concentration.

Super magenta drop-in lenses are used along with your regular welding lens to enhance visibility by filtering out excess light and improving contrast.

These lenses are particularly beneficial for tasks requiring precise detail work and color differentiation.

Alloweld glass lenses are specifically engineered to withstand high temperatures and harsh welding conditions.

These lenses provide durable protection against intense light and radiation, ensuring reliable performance in demanding welding environments.

In addition to its range of tinted welding lenses, Phillips Safety also offers two clear welding lenses, each serving specific purposes in enhancing safety and precision during welding operations.

Clear glass cover lenses are designed to protect the primary welding lens from spatter, scratches, and other potential damage.

These lenses offer transparent visibility without altering the color or shade of the primary lens, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

Welding magnifier lenses are equipped with magnification capabilities, allowing welders to work with increased precision and accuracy.

These lenses feature built-in magnification diopters, enhancing visibility of intricate details and fine weld seams.



Consider the specific welding tasks and environments in which the lenses will be used to determine the most suitable lens type and shade.


Lens Material

Consider the material composition of the lenses, such as polycarbonate or glass. Polycarbonate lenses are lightweight, impact-resistant, and ideal for rugged work environments, while glass lenses offer superior optical clarity and scratch resistance.

Lens Shade Selection

Choose a lens shade appropriate for the specific welding process and intensity of light. The filter shade determines the level of darkness and protection provided by the glasses. Lower filter shades are suitable for light welding tasks, while higher filter shades offer increased darkness and protection for high-intensity welding processes.

Lens Size and Coverage

Evaluate the size and coverage of the lenses to ensure adequate protection for the eyes and surrounding areas. Opt for lenses that provide comprehensive coverage without obstructing peripheral vision or causing discomfort.

Protection Level

Choose welding lenses with appropriate levels of protection against intense light, UV radiation, and infrared radiation based on industry standards and guidelines.


Choose THE lens FILTER

Begin by selecting the lens filter that best suits your welding needs. Decide between our wide range of welding lenses, each offering unique advantages in terms of clarity, contrast, and protection.


SELECT the size and shape

After selecting the lens filter, proceed to choose the size and shape that align with your preferences and requirements. We typically offer small and large rectangular lenses, along with a 50-mm circular option, for most lenses.


select the filter shade

Choose the suitable filter shade from the available range based on your specific welding tasks and working environment. Take into account factors such as the intensity of light, welding process, and industry standards to ensure the shade meets your requirements. It’s important to note that not all filters offer multiple shades, and different filters provide varying ranges of shades.
