The peculiarity of the welder’s work is the constant presence of high temperatures, splashes of hot metal, so the employee needs a special protective equipment. Spilkaya suits are popular with all the necessary characteristics.


The welder’s suit must satisfy many requirements:

  • In addition to strength and resistance to mechanical impacts, it must be moisture-resistant;
  • He must create comfort during the fulfillment of difficult work, do not shoot movies;
  • One of the basic requirements is the ability to provide a high level of high temperature protection in the presence of open fire, from sparks and particles of hot metal;
  • Chemicals should not affect it;
  • It is necessary to preserve protective properties during the entire period of operation.

Spilk suit welder fully satisfies the claimed characteristics. It usually has the highest level 3 level of protection, that is, it can be operated on a distance of 0.5 m from the source of fire, it can be used in closed rooms, weld the seams in the tank, container, pipeline.

  • have a long service life without decreasing characteristics.

However, some drawbacks also have. Because of the high density of the material there is no air exchange. Impenetrable all-spot suit causes the appearance of a feeling of discomfort at the working. In the constant presence of high temperatures, it will be hot, heating may occur.
