All I want for Christmas ........

Christmas definitely isn't just for kids. So come on, with Santa almost ready to load his sleigh it's time to start thinking not only about your own Christmas wish list, but also what to buy the welder in your life.

If you're short on a few ideas, here's a little bit of festive inspiration from Rapid ......

 🎄

Welding Helmets

Welding Helmets are always a popular gift idea, but they are a personal choice and with advances in technology there are loads of different functionalities to decide upon. At Rapid we only supply products we are appointed by the manufaturer to sell, and there are some great products on the market at the moment such as (but not limited to) Kemppi, ESAB, Speedglass and 3M.

Kicking things off is the 3M 9100 Adflo Helmet systems with new Adflo Powered Air Respirator. The continuous airflow provides filtered air that takes much of the heat and sweat out of welding, and by using the Adflo Respirator, you will get both increased protection and comfort all day long - the perfect Christmas gift!

The ESAB Sentinel A50 Auto Darkening Welding Helmet has been a very popular choice with our customers this year. Where comfort and usability meet next generation technology, the sentinel features new ergonomic headgear, colour touchscreen controls and an external grind button!

The BETA Welding helmet 90mm from Kemppi is another great welding helmet providing full protection without compromising visability or comfort. Weld with optimum visibility without the need to intermittently remove your helmet or make adjustments, making it easier for you to operate in tight work spaces without compromising your safety. The Kemppi BETA comes with a spring mounted flip front lens; just lift the filter lens and keep working! The 100% clear safety lens underneath is also safety assured for grinding.

  We've touched on Welding Helmets, now let's talk clothing - and I don't mean Christmas Jumpers!

Be prepared for those Christmas cooking disasters (apologies to all the chefs out there!) by adding a few items from ESAB's fantastic range of flame resistant clothing to your wish list. The new flame resistant range is the very latest technology in inherent flame retardant garments, and you can choose from welding jacket, trousers, jumper, polo shirt or coverall styles.

ESAB's leather protective range is also helping to redefine welder protection, with garments that provide optimal fit, comfort, performance, style and durability, resulting in safer and more productive working environments. The leather protective range includes jackets, trousers, sleeves, aprons and gaiters - all ideal for every welding application for the professional welder. For more information on ESAB welding clothing, visit Rapid online HERE.

 If nothing so far tickles your fancy, we also stock an extensive range of other safety products that will make great stocking fillers. Take your pick of head protection with Balaclavas, Insulated Helmet Liners, Proban Hoods as well as welding gloves, goggles, ear protection, glasses and visors.
