Features & Specifications

Upgrade to the New Feature-Packed G5-01 TW

Existing Adflo PAPR customers can now experience the upgraded features of the Speedglas G5-01TW welding helmet. With True-View, larger viewing areas, Climate Control, a removable welding shield, optional task light and more, the G5-01 simply connects to your existing Adflo PAPR unit! The kit comes complete with the welding helmet and lens.

Powerful Welding Fume Protection

Comfortable face seal follows the contours of both the face and helmet to create a positive pressure seal from pollutants. An exclusive airflow pattern within the helmet ensures filtered air is evenly distributed throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder.

Smoother Dark-Light Transition

To minimise eye strain during extended tack welding applications, the G5-01 TW welding lens uses an intermediate shade 5 light state. If an arc is not struck within 2 seconds the welding lens will automatically switch back to its shade 3 TrueView light state.

Flip-up to Even Larger Views

The extra-large flip-up clear visor is 16% larger than the 9100 FX Air (170x104 mm), giving you even greater views while grinding. The flip-up grinding shield also allows clear and uninhibited views as you walk around the workplace, all while keeping your positive pressure respiratory seal in place.

Extra-Large Welding Lens with Superior Optics

A massive 73 x 109mm viewing area gives you greater clarity than ever before! Combined with Speedglas TrueView technology, what you see through the lens appears lighter, brighter and in more detail.

Removable Welding Visor

For extended periods of non-welding work, the G5-01 welding visor can be completely removed – reducing the helmet weight by over 35%.

Airflow Climate Control for Greater Comfort

Take control over the amount and direction of airflow within your helmet, with an innovative helmet duct system. Perfect for welding in hot and humid environments, all adjustments can be made while keeping your helmet in place.

Adaptable Coverage Options

Adapt your G5-01 to suit your specific welding environment, with a handy range of configurable extra coverage options. Choose from neck and head protection in leather or fabric, with a high-visibility option also available.

Bluetooth Connectivity and Memory Modes

New Bluetooth technology allows you to change your G5-01TW welding lens settings from the palm of your hand, rather than removing your helmet! This means you can keep your eye, face and respiratory protection in place. For simple switching, easily program up to four memory modes.

Light Up your Weld

The G5-01 is available with a new, optional helmet-mounted task light – giving you hours of powerful lighting when welding in spaces with poor lighting.

Slim Design with Increased Coverage

A slim, streamlined profile gives you more coverage for your ears, head and neck.

Unrivalled Switching and Arc Detection with Auto-On

Photo-sensors that can detect an arc down to an industry-leading 1 amp. Auto-On technology means your welding helmet is instantly ready to weld; programmed to your last used welding setting.

Complies with relevant Australian & New Zealand Standards

The G5-01 TW is compliant with all relevant Australian & New Zealand Standards including AS/NZS1337.1 (high impact face protection), AS/NZS1338.1 (eye protection) and AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).

More Comfortable Welding

The new G5-01 headband design is ergonomic and optimised for welder comfort. A completely customisable head harness design helps evenly distribute weight and avoid sensitive areas of the head, helping to minimise fatigue. For even greater comfort, the G5-01 comes with an extra large comfort back cushion.

Magnification Lens Holder

For easy mag lens placement, the G5-01 has a built-in lens holder. This allows for easy attachment, perfect positioning and even better vision.

Speedglas Welding PPE is a long term investment

The Speedglas G5-01 welding lens has a custom multi-function programmed logic chip that minimises the number of discrete surface-mounted components; leading to improved reliability and longevity.

Industry Leading Warranty Protection

The Speedglas G5-01 lens features a revolving three year warranty. Experience a problem with the welding mask in the first three years and your 3 year warranty protection starts again. Speedglas helmets are built to last.
