more about optrel respiratory protection

softhood series

Fresh Air for Dusty Environments.


The optrel respiratory protection softhood is based on the principle of overpressure relative to the environment and prevents contaminated air from entering the respiratory tract. It protects against dust and spray mist during various non-toxic operations and is optimal for use in manufacturing, woodworking, food and pharmaceutical production, mining or agriculture.

The softhood protective hoods from optrel.


The optrel softhood is available in both a short and a long version. The short softhood is ideal when the focus is on acoustic perception, while the long version additionally covers the entire neck and shoulder area in case of increased dust exposure.

Perfect in combination


Both versions are used with optrel’s respiratory protection systems, depending on the application: the optrel e3000X blower respiratory protection system or the optrel suppliedair compressed air system.

More about optrel respiratory protection


Made of ultra-lightweight nylon fabric, the headgear fits quickly and easily to all head sizes thanks to the comfortable elastic band. This makes it very comfortable to wear even over long periods of time. Its wide panoramic visor with anti-fog coating ensures an unrestricted view of the work at all times.

  • Superior, ultra-lightweight respiratory protection

  • Versatile, even in toxic environments thanks to optional A1B1E1 gas filter

  • Wide visor with anti-fog coating

  • Individual headgear customization (adjustable circumference and distance from the visor)

  • Comfortable to wear thanks to generous cut and lightweight, durable material

  • No masks Fit test required

  • Can be used with facial hair or beards

Protection for painting work


In addition to particles, organic gases and vapors also emerge during paintwork. Therefore, the painter should use masks with a high protection level and filters for organic gases and vapors. The softhood in combination with the e3000X offers just that: Protection level TH3 and an A1B1E1 gas filter.

In addition to respiratory protection, the optrel softhood also provides head, face and eye protection. With the long softhood version, even the shoulder area is spared from the spray mist.

Under the protective hood, a breathing space is created that helps you breathe thanks to positive pressure and eliminates tiring breathing resistance.

Wood working


During wood processing, fine wood dust can enter the sinuses or lungs, irritate the respiratory tract and cause allergies. optrel softhoods not only protect your airways, but also your eyes, as the hoods are worn over the entire head.

Together with the e3000X, the respiratory protection system also filters out elements such as tannic acids, unsaturated aldehydes or molds, which also pose a health risk during wood processing. Thanks to the additionally available A1B1E1 gas filter, secondary substances such as varnishes, stains or paints are simply filtered out.

Agriculture, viticulture and fruit farming


The optrel softhood provides protection not only during mixing, but especially during application of pesticides. It protects not only the respiratory tract (with A1B1E1 filter) but also the eyes and face from the spray mist. Its lightweight design makes it comfortable to wear all day.

Suitable respiratory protection is essential, especially when handling pesticides. The softhood protects against hazards that can be caused by disinfectants, solvents and pesticides.

Demolition and building works


During demolition and renovation works, substances that are harmful to the respiratory tract may be released. It is not always known which insulation and damping materials have been used. The optrel softhood provides all-around respiratory protection that also protects the eyes and face from the fine dust. In combination with the e3000X, no matter how much dust there is, you will always be supplied with fresh air. The slight positive pressure supports breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance.

Best breathing air. Any place.

The perfect fresh air supply for working in critical environments.

Always the best breathing air


When working in toxic environments, in closed rooms or in extremely cramped situations, such as in boiler or vessel construction, a sufficient supply of clean fresh air is essential. The optrel suppliedair system forms the interface between the compressed air- carrying case air vessel and the fresh air helmet. It ensures a sufficient and regulated supply of fresh air and warns you with its integrated alarm of deviations in the target air volume.

* Suitable for all optrel PAPR helmets

Comfort Belt


An individually adjustable belt with quick-release fastener ensures a comfortable fit and ideal support of the system on the body.

Air Filter


An additional air filter provides the user maximum with safety. It prevents the penetration of foreign bodies and impurities into the clean compressed air and thus into the fresh air helmet.

Great Connectivity


Two different connection nipples are available for connection to all common compressed air systems.

Fresh air - where you need it

optrel consistently avoids any air turbulence inside the helmet that could irritate your eyes. The purified air is led directly to your mouth and nose in an internal air flow channel. After all, this is the only place we need this valuable breathing air. We have also thought of a pleasant cooling. In the forehead area a continuously adjustable air outlet offers you the option to let up to 20% of the air flow onto your forehead. Pleasantly soft! No more eye irritation!

optrel  IsoFit®


The revolutionary headgear for maximum individual comfort – just fits perfectly!


As standard with ever optrel panoramaxx Series welding helmet.



Closer. Further ahead.

A nose cutout changes everything.

Without a doubt, the nose is one of our most important organs and takes our senses into the fifth dimension. But when it comes to enlarging the welder's field of vision by positioning the anti-glare display, ergonomically optimal, closer to the eye, the nose gets in our way.

So we threw all conventions overboard and dared the technological chin-up to give the display a nose cutout. The result is impressive. More than 600% enlargement of the field of view without increasing the weight and shape of the welding helmet. The practical additional benefit is, due to the clear separation from the mouth area, you no longer breathe on the display and thus prevent the anti-glare window from tarnishing.

Our pragmatic approach is so new and innovative that several patents have been granted for it - and guarantees its uniqueness.

The optrel panoramaxx as a personal assistance system.

Complete equipment as standard.

In addition to the large field of vision and crystal-clear optics, which form an actual assistance system, all members of the panoramaxx series are equipped with the latest digital electronics. The patented Shadetronic and Fadetronic technologies in combination with the 5-point sensor system and the re-charge energy concept are the core elements.

They enable welders to focus on their work and allow them to work without interruption. This results in quality and efficiency. Thanks to the ergonomic design of the perfectly fitting optrel lsoFit® headband, the panoramaxx is light as a feather and fatigue-free. All panoramaxx welding helmets are highly robust at the lowest weight and protect users against external mechanical impacts such as high speed particles which hit the helmet at up to 120 m/s. And thanks to grinding mode, which can be easily operated externally, and the incomparable appearance, even grinding work is more fun.


The patented optrel ShadeTronic® technology automatically adjusts the protection level to the changing light conditions of the welding arc. This allows welders to work without interruption.

A sophisticated Shadetronic sensor continuously measures the light intensity of the welding arc and regulates the glare protection progressively from SN 4 to a maximum of SN 13 fully automatically.


With the patented optrel Fadetronic technology, the opening of the anti-glare display can be continuously adjusted after welding. The unpleasant afterglow is faded out – especially for high ampere applications. Eye fatigue is significantly reduced thanks to the display opening smoothly and being adapted to the eye.


The unique and environmentally-friendly optrel re-charge energy concept ensures that welding helmets always have enough energy. Thanks to the latest solar technology, a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery is recharged either by the welding light or by the ambient light. In addition, the battery can also be charged directly with any USB charger via a micro-USB interface. The tiresome changing of batteries is no longer necessary and the environment is protected.

5-point Detection

The optrel 5-point detection integrated in the panoramaxx series is an intelligent sensor control with five sensors. Sophisticated software and clever positioning of four sensors at the corners and one sensor in the upper centre ensures the glare shield is switched on and off perfectly, even in the most difficult lighting conditions and in constrained positions, as well as permanent dark level adjustment (Shadetronic®, patented) during welding.

Grinding mode

Like most optrel welding helmets, the products in the panoramaxx series have a grinding mode. It can be conveniently operated externally by means of a robust and well-protected pressure switch. Once activated, the anti-glare display remains deactivated, which guarantees trouble-free grinding work. At the touch of another button, the glare shield is then immediately ready for welding work. Your optrel welding helmet becomes a true multifunctional work safety device.

Very big cinema. You decide on the movie.

Luke D., 23 years old

„After completing my apprenticeship as a metalworker, I have decided I want to work with professional equipment. I simply love the versatility of my job. Welding, grinding, straightening. The panoramaxx2.5 is as versatile as my field of activity. The sublime field of vision helps me to master the various tasks easily and safely.“

Watch the optrel panoramaxx series video



Welcome to the top league. The panoramaxx2.5 combines the enormous field of vision with optrel's well-known 2.5 technology and offers excellent visibility in every working situation – whether for welding, cutting, grinding or straightening work. Whatever you want, the optrel panoramaxx2.5 automatically follows your versatile field of activity.

One helmet. Four top marks.

Alex S., 49 years old

„I weld complex structures in steel construction. Given that the heavy components cannot be moved, I have to weld a lot in constrained positions. Then in these positions, I always had uneven brightness levels in the corners of the ADF. These differences are completely gone in the new quattro. And thanks to the large field of vision, I can move safely through the structures and work without interruption. The panoramaxx quattro gets right to the point.“

Watch the optrel panoramaxx series video



The panoramaxx quattro was developed for use in heavy metal construction, where work is often carried out with a lot of energy and in a wide variety of welding positions. Especially in constrained positions, there is no straight view of the welding point. Perfect viewing angle dependence, confirmed by the best test mark of 1 according to the EN 379 standard, guarantees that panoramaxx quattro welders always have the best view of the welding process without manual adjustment of the protection level. This results in uninterrupted and fatigue-free working and improved performance.

Crystal clear view of the welding pool.

Karl-Friedrich, 46 years

„I weld safety-related components made of stainless steel using the TIG process. Every weld needs to fit right away, otherwise it will be very expensive. Control over the weld pool and the uncompromising clear view of the colour gradient is absolutely crucial for me. That's why I decided on the panoramaxx clt.“

Watch the optrel panoramaxx series video



The world famous Crystal Lens Technology 2.0 is now also available in the panoramaxx clt version. optrel engineers have thus once again pushed the limits of what is possible to a new level.

Anyone who has ever welded with CLT technology will barely be able to believe their eyes.

The colour perception in the light state comes very close to the view through the clear window glass and in the dark state you get a detailed and high-contract view of the welding pool in a clarity never seen before. Unlock your true potential – with the panoramaxx clt.
