Welding Balaclava for Overhead Protection

  • Made with Torch Wear CarbonX®
  • Two-layer top for added protection, (a second layer of our heaviest weight CarbonX)
  • Protects your skull and neck from radiant heat and molten splash
  • Great for overhead welding and out-of-position projects
  • One size fits all

If you work in a foundry or steel mill, you already know what this item is all about: Keeping your noggin and neck from getting fried. It is a real lifesaver when you are welding overhead or if you are out of position or in a tightly enclosed space. The CarbonX® material in these hoods can help make the difference between a severe burn and just another day at the office. When exposed to laboratory simulations of flash fires, CarbonX material can add significant protection compared to traditional heat-resistant protective materials like Nomex® or Indura®.
