Z4 - Welding/Metalworking Respirator Mask

Welding/grinding respirator designed with a focus on comfort. Head harness & visor carefully developed for optimum weight distribution, resulting in the most ergonomically balanced welding respirator in the field.

The Z4® comprises a crystal-clear grinding visor & a flip-up welding visor which you can lift to check welds  & instantly begin grinding. Both shade 5 peripheral windows & opaque window blockers are included.

The Z4 is fitted with a passive fixed lens or a large ADF lens boasting an optical quality rating of 1.1.1.1 with the all-important fourth 1. Advanced angular dependence control guarantees uniform shading & distortion-free vision, allowing operators to work comfortably across different angles as required.

Dual air distribution system delivers air via an adjustable deflector to both the operator & the visor to eliminate fogging.

Made in the USA.
