Redesigning the conventional welding helmet, with everyday welding professionals at the front of the innovation process, resulted in a clear-view helmet like no other.

All the Panoramaxx helmets provide you with a clear view of true colors. Optrel’s Shadetronic sensors detect changes in light intensity and adjust the shade level accordingly to provide the perfect level of protection, fully automatically. To make the best even better, this pairs with FadeTronic technology to fade out any unpleasant afterglow. 

Each helmet comes with a 3-year warranty and provides 1,000 hours of use with a single charge, so you can stay focused on the task at hand. There are currently 3 different Panoramaxx helmets, each tailored for specific needs, find out which one will transform your welding experience
