Welding curtains are designed for use in workplaces where bystanders must be protected against the hazardous radiation emitted during welding work. They provide protection against dangerous Blue Light and Ultra Violet (UV) rays. In case of prolonged exposure these rays can cause actinic conjunctivitis and even cataracts.
CEPRO transparent welding curtains are available in three colours:
- CEPRO ORANGE-CE
- CEPRO BRONZE-CE
- CEPRO GREEN-6.
All three colour types comply with ISO EN 25980 standards and provide an excellent filter against hazardous welding light and also offer protection against irritating but non-harmful welding light. They not only provide a better overview of the working area but also make it safer and do not isolate the welder from the rest of the working area.
- CEPRO GREEN-9
Curtains in CEPRO GREEN-9 comply with ISO EN 25980, they are translucent (opaque) but not transparent. This makes this type of welding curtain ideal for creating separate welding bays so welding radiation does not cause any hazard to other workers in their work space.
- CEPRO YELLOW
- CEPRO CLEAR
CEPRO Yellow and CEPRO Clear do not provide professional protection in welding work areas. Both the yellow and clear curtains are for use as a grinding curtain. Although the yellow grinding curtain does provide protection against UV rays it is not suitable for use as a welding curtain. The curtains are flame retardant but do not comply with the EN-1598 standards because of the explanation above.
- Minimum usage temperature approx. 5°C.
- Maximum heat resistance approx. 80°C.
- The welding curtains are for visual protection use and although they are flame retardant, they are not suitable for use as a welding blanket and/or as protection against welding sparks.
- The material is not intended to replace a welding window but to be used to protect bystanders from harmful rays in the welding area.
