Defender 500 Green Welding Screen With Heavy Duty Frame
The Defender 500 is a heavy duty welding screen, supplied as a kit, with all parts for assembly of a self standing strip curtain and frame, suitable for welding protection. The bigger brother model of the Defender 400 series screens, the 500 features a heavier duty frame, two additional pivoting arms and strip curtains which fasten together for effective UV light and spatter protection.
The screen comes with strong casters for mobility around the workshop. 2 of the casters are lockable too, to keep the frame in place once located in a suitable area. This, paired with the two pivoting arms allows for a large work area to be created with minimal effort.
Measuring approximately 13.6 feet wide and 6.3 feet tall the Defender 500 is made from 33mm powder coated steel tube.
The welding screen kit contains 15 welding screen curtain strips compliant with ISO25980. The amber welding curtain strips fasten together with click studs to its neighbouring strip. The curtain strips can then be attached to the header rail of the Defender frame using the supplied curtain rings.
Complying with ISO25980, the Defender curtain protects any observer from the arc light generated during welding and the material is flame retardant.

WHY USE A WELDING SCREEN?
There is no question that any person carrying out a welding process must be well protected from the inherent hazards associated. These risks include but are not limited to exposure to the intense light generated from the welding arc, as well as sparks and spatter. The welder would typically wear a welding helmet to protect the eyes, face and head, as well as suitable flame retardent gloves and clothing.
To protect other persons in the same room, a welding screen or curtain can be utilised. A red or amber welding screen are most popular, allowing some supervision of the welder behind the screen due to its semi transparent nature. The curtain blocks harmful UV light, whilst allowing some light through. It also protects persons against sparks and spatter.
