WelDINg Shades app

WelDINg Shades is the first (and only) APP that lets you know the recommended (or required) filter shade for your eyesight protection when performing welding or cutting operations.

Welding and cutting operations generate diverse radiations, including intense visible light, and invisible UV (ultraviolet) and IR (infrared) radiations, as well as X-rays.

WelDINg Shades APP is developed by PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) experts for welders and OS&H professionals and managers, to answer questions like: Which filter should (shall) I use if I am welding stainless steel with TIG (GTAW) at 180 Amperes? Or if I am cutting a 3/4-inch steel plate?, etc.

Based on the user selection for a type of welding or cutting process and the process parameter, WelDINg Shades app shows the filter shade to be used.

The approaches available are:
  • EN 379 / EN 169 recommendations (Europe)
  • OSHA Minimum Protective Shade Number (USA)
  • ANSI & AWS Shade Number Recommendations (USA)
Note, that ANSI & AWS filter recommendations are tighter than (in some few cases are equal to) the OSHA requirements (if you follow ANSI & AWS recommendations you already comply with OSHA requirements).

The resulting filter shade is either according to EN 379 / EN 169 standards (formerly known as the DIN shade), or according to ANSI Z87.1, depending on your standards selection.

Note: local standards of most countries follow either EN or USA standards.

You can copy the information and results (process, process parameter and filter) to your device's clipboard; or you can share them through an SMS, email or your favorite messaging application.

WelDINg Shades is a simple-design, easy-to-use app. Welding and cutting filter selection for eye protection in the palm of your hand.

This app is intended for welders, OS&H (Occupational Safety and Health) professionals, consultants and managers, hobbyists, PPE resellers, etc.
