YOUR HELMET: THE APR 900.Flexible. Secure. Individual.

Occupational health and safety concerns us all.

Many welders weld out of passion and conviction. Enjoying the job is important - no question about that. But the safety aspect must not be overlooked. Welding produces smoke, heat, UV radiation and intense light. That is in the nature of things. However, welders do not have to expose themselves to these health hazards.

Particular protection is needed for the eyes, face and respiratory tract. The APR 900 welding helmets have been developed with the aim of providing welders with the best possible protection and a high level of comfort. The helmets not only consist of an auto-darkening cassette at an absolute reference level, but also include many other practical detailed solutions that are absolutely harmoniously combined in an overall concept. The APR 900 family offers exactly the right protection for individual welding tasks. And because safety must not be a privilege, the Lorch APR 900 welding helmets convince with an unbeatable price-performance ratio.

„The APR 900 is practical; it fits perfectly and makes me feel secure. You only have two eyes in your life. You need to protect them without accepting any compromises!“

100 % YOUR HELMET. Practical details combined in a harmonious overall concept.

The right protection for every task.

With its innovative design, the new APR 900 welding helmet offers optimum welding comfort and provides reliable protection in every task and procedure! The high-end anti-glare cassette ensures colour-fast crystal-clear vision. The available protection levels 3 - 14 enable the welder to use all common procedures. The externally insertable visor can be replaced by means of a simple locking mechanism. The comfortable headband ensures excellent wearing comfort. But that is not all:


In any direction, whether overhead, lying, or on
the side, and no matter the welding method. With
reliable darkening just as you prefer it.


and robustness are required in a welder's everyday
work. Having a cool helmet design that makes you
look good in an added bonus.

A clear view

A perfect view of the welding result requires large
fi eld of vision, ideal colour reproduction, and reliable closure speed of the glare protection cassette.


Balanced out, with perfect seat and adjustment
options for fatigue-free welding, even for extended


Simple replacement of wear parts, adaptability of
the visual display to personal preferences, and
expansion by many accessory pieces - from chest
to neck protection.

Versatile tasks require well thought-out solutions.

Discover the diversity of the APR 900 family.

Each helmet variant is equipped with many practical features. You decide which ones you need. Do you want an extra large field of vision? A constant and pleasant supply of fresh air? Or perhaps both?

The APR 900 XF.

180° field of vision thanks to “Flip”.

A flip helmet is ideal, in particular if other work is required in addition to welding where the eyes and face must be protected from mechanical damage. It combines the large and clear view of goggles with the
automatic protection from the radiation of the arc via a glare protection filter. The helmet can stay on your
head and be folded up or down depending on the work task.

“XF” – The flip mechanism

Safety and comfort: The two-part helmet contains a large curved protective lens of clear polycarbonate with a large field of vision. This protects from flying particles and sparks, such as those produced during grinding. An outer helmet shell containing the glare protection cassette can be folded down.

Easy handling

The outer and inner helmet shells are disconnected from each other. The disconnected folding mechanism ensures that the inner helmet shell remains closed even when the outer shell is unfolded. This allows one-handed activation of a large, clear field of vision with maximum protection.

Perfect vision – thanks to large grinding visor

A large viewing window offers greater peripheral vision. There is no need to move the head as frequently. Movements or even potential danger in the peripheral area can be perceived early.

The APR 900 air system.

Fresh air and comfort in every welding  position.

Thanks to the APR 900 air and the associated APR FLOW fresh air unit, welders are optimally supplied with fresh air during work. The supplied air flow does not create a draught on the eyes or ears and is also supplied to the interior of the helmet without whistling or hissing noises. Full enjoyment of the fresh air supply without restrictions.

You want all the features of the helmet family at once? No problem. The APR 900 air is also available as a flip helmet. 

Adjustable air supply

The air supply adjuster allows adjustment of the air flow – only to the mouth/nose area in the closed position and additionally to the forehead in the open position. The welder can adjust the direction of ventilation depending on individual preferences. Reliable fume shielding is warranted in all positions via the overpressure in the helmet.

Effective sealing

Sealing towards the face for a comfortable feel. The better the seal between the welder's helmet and face, the less fume can penetrate. The fire-resistant cotton mix feels comfortable on the skin. Even the lowest ventilation stage is suffi cient to reliably keep the fume out due to the overpressure with good sealing.

Ventilation hose with quick-release bayonet fastener and hose holder

Easy and quick assembly and disassembly of the helmet and hose. The helmet separates quickly from the ventilation system. Particularly useful when the helmet needs to be put aside without taking off the strap. The helmet can also be used without the ventilation system. The hose holder on the headband ensures that the hose is fixed, can be individually guided, and does not interfere with work.


The perfect combination.

The APR FLOW fresh air unit perfectly complements the APR 900. The FLOW supplies the welder with fresh air during the entire working time. Thanks to optimal dust and gas filters, longer welding sessions are made as pleasant as possible, even in more heavily loaded work areas. 

Powerful batteries and filters with spark protection ensure maximum efficiency and prevent movement restrictions during work.

Wearing comfort.

The lightweight fan and fi lter unit will adjust to the shape of your back to be barely perceptible. The support system is soft yet sturdy enough to keep the unit tightly on your back without dangling between your legs as well. That would get in the way of work.

Contemporary USB-C charging socket.

We surely all remember it: The mobile phone ran out of battery and no fi tting charging cable at hand... USB-C is always available today, making sure that the APR Flow can be charged at all times. The socket is dust-protected inside the housing.

Particle or gas filter?

A PRSL particle filter is usually ventilation. However, if aluminium or stainless steel are to be welded with limited ventilation, an additional ABE1 gas filter quickly becomes necessary in order to comply with the limit values according to the risk assessment. The APR Flow offers both options to secure its contribution to safeguarding health and working capacity for a long time to come.

No compromise in the area of safety.

Battery capacity and filter clogging are displayed by LEDs during operation, enabling timely preparation of the unit. If this is missed, the APR Flow first sounds an acoustic alarm and later a vibration alarm as well, prompting to leave the danger zone in time and without any risk of misunderstandings.

Tough conditions?

Welding times until recharging can be doubled with an optional heavy-duty battery. This is perfect for longer tasks or on external assembly jobs. There is the protective cover for the ventilation hose, which protects it from damage for a longer service life and frequent welding in constrained positions.

Always the best advice: close, personal and honest.
