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 shade 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.

Ultimate Welder Protection

No Fit Test Respiratory Protection and Compliance

Great for Beards, New Guys, & Part-Timers

Finding time to shave in the morning shouldn't impact a welder's long-term health. Forced air respirators surround a welder's head with a helmet or mask & face seal or shoulder shroud, keeping out dangerous welding fumes. Respirable breathing air is supplied from a clean air source like a compressed air tank, fixed air line, or personal PAPR.

Clean Air for Welders On The Go

Select the ergonomically designed, lightweight, battery powered PX5 Air for a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) is worn on the hip that supplies HEPA filtered breathing air without the restriction of attached air lines.

Elite optical protection and clarity for welders

Elite Optical Protection & Clarity

ADF lens boasts an optical quality rating of 1.1.1.1 with the all-important 4th 1. Angular dependence control guarantees uniform shading & distortion-free vision, allowing operators to work comfortably across different angles. Superior color definition in both open & activated states allows welders to easily identify heat definition & displays on equipment.

Protection from Welding Fumes

Long-term health effects of some welding fumes range from cancer to nervous system damage. According to OSHA, potential health effects of breathing welding fume include:

  1. Prolonged exposure may cause lung damage & various types of cancer, including lung, larynx & urinary tract
  2. Acute exposure to welding fume & gases can result in eye, nose & throat irritation, dizziness & nausea
  3. Health effects from some fumes include metal fume fever, stomach ulcers, kidney damage & nervous system damage
  4. Prolonged exposure to manganese fume can cause Parkinsons-like symptoms
  5. Displaced oxygen can lead to suffocation. Carbon monoxide can form, posing an asphyxiation hazard
  6. Hexavalent Chromium (CR(VI)) causes cancer, targeting respiratory system, kidneys, liver, skin & eyes. Adverse health effects associated with Cr(VI) exposure include:
    1. Occupational asthma | Eye & nose irritation & damage | Perforated eardrums | Respiratory irritation & cancer | Kidney & liver damage | Pulmonary congestion & edema | Upper abdominal pain | Skin irritation | Erosion & discoloration of teeth | Contact dermatitis (long-lasting & more severe with repeat exposure) | Contact with non-intact skin can lead to ulceration (chrome ulcers)
  7. What's in welding fume?
    1. Metals: Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Beryllium, Cadmium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Lead, Manganese, Molybdenum, Nickel, Silver, Tin, Titanium, Vanadium, Zinc
    2. Gases, Shielding Argon, Helium, Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide
