Our most popular models are Z-87.1 ANSI approved and OSHA accepted. Smaller models are available; however, they do not provide the approved and accepted coverage (Listed as old style on website).
"I want to thank you so much for the support you showed me. I am about to get on an airplane and return home from a crazy six month deployment on the USS Ohio. During this run I got many opportunities to use the hood you sent to me. We had a high pressure air rupture occur that prevented us from being able to make air aboard the submarine. We had a rupture on the reverse osmosis unit that prevented us from being able to make water for anything from drinking to reactor plant operations. We had a hydraulic rupture that caused a loss of steering hydraulics to the ships controlling systems. Needless to say it was a wild deployment and The Original Pancake Hood was right there on the fore front with me making those repairs so the ship was back up and 100% operational. Thank you so much for supporting me and my shipmates. You guys definitely played a part in serving the country and assisting in missions vital to national security!"

"Here at Pipeline Local 798 Training Center, Tulsa Ok. We have been training pipeline welders for over fifty years. We believe that good equipment is important to learn welding, from your welding machine all the way to your welding hood. That's why the only hood we use at Pipeline Local Training Center is the Original Pancake Brand hood. It meets all the industry standards and is constructed with quality. It is also compatible with glasses and quick-change lenses, and that's very important. We promote Original Pancake Brand Welding Hoods to all our contractors and anyone that ask about what kind of hood to buy. They are also quick to get your order processed with a reasonable price for a good American product.
