  • Lincoln Electric - The New & Improved Viking 3350 Welding Helmet

    The new and improved Viking 3350 is Lincoln's top-of-the-line welding helmet range, offering the ultimate blend of optics, comfort and versatility and featuring the latest 4C® Lens Technology.


    ·  4C Lens Technology broadens the colour range and hues which can be seen in both light and dark states. This eliminates imperfections and colour saturation to create the clearest view of the base material, arc and puddle. 

    · The Perfect 1/1/1/1 Optical Clarity is determined by measuring blurriness, distortion, shade consistency and angle uniformity of the auto-darkening welding lens. 

    · Extra Large Viewing Area with a 12.5 square inch auto darkening lens that provides a large field of view to increase versatility and operator control. 

    · All Day Comfort with the innovative X6 headgear that distributes weight, reduces pressure, and optimises balance. 

    · Increased Productivity with an external low profile grind control function.

    · Professional Versatility with an optimised performance for all welding/cutting processes and environments.

    · 3-Year hassle free warranty.

  • Rapid has EXPANDED!

    “Excellent service, fast and reliable with quality parts and equipment.”

    “Fast efficient service thank you”

    “Ordered something at 2.45 arrived at my doorstep 11.30 next day that’s what I call service thankyou”

    “Fantastic service and so pleased that my small order was treated like a it was a the main job for the day. And I received it the next day !!!!”

    We love our feedback when customers say they received their orders very quickly, but to do that we have to hold lots of stock.

    We are therefore delighted to announce that Rapid have purchased an additional industrial unit next door to our existing base in Portsmouth which, by happy coincidence, is the original unit where the Rapid Welding journey began all the way back in 1990.

    Now, we would love to hold stock for all of the 50,000 items on our website, however, we are sure you can appreciate that is not quite possible. By expanding though, we do hope we can meet your requirements faster and ensure you have the best buying experience here at Rapid Welding.
