Welding is a hazardous undertaking and it is important to protect both your welders and those working around them. After all, welders are not only at risk of injury themselves, but also of people in the surrounding areas. Singer Safety Company’s safety screens are used by our clients to provide protection during a variety of manufacturing operations including welding, grinding, and cutting. Our welding screens are a simple and versatile way to increase workplace safety by creating a barrier between the operation and the other workers. We offer welding screens in a variety of sizes, three different styles, six different material options, and more than six different colors. Our welding and safety screens can meet the specific needs of any application. Learn more about Singer Safety Company’s welding & safety screens.
Welding & Safety Screens
A welding screen acts as an enclosure that creates a safe environment for those working inside the enclosure and also those outside the enclosure. Welding screens are manufactured with high-quality materials that can withstand the extreme temperatures of welding operations, and keep everyone in the vicinity safe from harm.
When Do I Need to Use Welding & Safety Screens?
Welding and safety screens are necessary in any facility that does not have a separate welding area. Typically, welding screens are used by welders in areas where they weld in close proximity to other people. Welding screens can reduce the amount of dangerous UV light that other workers or bystanders will be exposed to during welding operations.
Benefits of Welding & Safety Screens
Welding areas can be dangerous without the right precautions. In order to create a safe environment for welding activities, welding curtains & safety screens create customized and enclosed areas designed specifically for welding. There are several benefits to using welding screens in the workplace.
Welding is obviously carried out at extremely high temperatures. While welders are typically wearing protective masks and clothes to protect themselves, others in the facility most likely are not. Welding screens help contain the high temperatures specifically to the welding area.
Create a Defined and Safe Welding Area
It can be difficult to create a safe space for welding operations in a large, open facility. It is sometimes not possible or cost-efficient to build a space with permanent walls. Welding screens solve this issue because they can be put up wherever you need right away, and moved to another location when you need. They are also available in a wide variety of sizes and colors, which allows you to create visible and customizable spaces wherever you need.
In addition to the high temperatures, welding also produces loud noises that can be dangerous for welders and those working around them. While many welders wear earplugs or another form of hearing protection, the noise can be dangerous and distracting to those in the area who are not wearing similar ear protection. Welding and safety screens, when used correctly, can minimize noise levels by creating a barrier between the welding station and the rest of your facility.
Contain Welding Fumes
Welding can also produce fumes and chemicals that can possibly be dangerous to those not wearing masks or other protective gear. Welding and safety screens contain these potentially harmful substances. A welding or safety screen acts as an enclosure that creates a safe environment for those working both inside and outside of the enclosure.
