Weldcap Series

Weldcap Bump

Product #: 1008.001

While normal autodarkening hoods protect only part of the head, the Optrel weldcap® bump now completely protects the crown of the head against painful strikes. The bump cap also provides additional stability and a feeling of safety like a full-face helmet, without getting noticeably heavier.

The weldcap stands for an auto-darkening welder’s cap that combines the comfort of a casual cap with the advantages of a full welding helmet. The combination of plastics and textile is unique. It’s soft where it must be comfortable, and robust where you need maximum protection. The comfortable and easy-to-change textile part is made from flame-retardant material. And it‘s hygienic: you can simply wash it. Now available in a new extended version: the optrel weldcap® bump RCB 3/9-12, new with integriated bump cap according to EN812/A1. Choose your perfect weldcap®!

We do not offer magnification for the weldcap. It is designed so glasses can be worn under the hood.
