The Silver Plus UltraShade auto-darkening helmet provides many features at an affordable price. It has a selectable welding shade level to provide protection. It has special filters that block out harmful UR and IR radiation. A tough shade cartridge means it can take the rigors of a day's work. A removable lens frame and replacable splatter cover guarantee optical quality and color. The adjustable head band includes a horizontal adjustment feature that regulates how close the mask is to the wearer's face. This means a comfortable fit, even for people who wear eyeglasses. A sensor bar eliminates the influence of surrounding bright lights and solar cells eliminate the need for on/off switches or battery changes.
