The standard DIN EN ISO 25980 "Health and safety in welding and allied processes - Transparent welding curtains, strips and screens for arc welding processes" specifies safety requirements for transparent welding curtains, strips, and screens to be used for shielding of work places from their surroundings where arc welding processes are used. They are designed to protect people who are not involved in the welding process from hazardous radiant emissions from welding arcs and spatter. Welding curtains, strips, and screens specified in this standard are not intended to replace welding filters. For intentional viewing of welding arcs other means of protection are used. This standard is not applicable for welding processes where laser radiation is used. The committee responsible for this standard is NA 092-00-09 AA "Arbeits- und Gesundheitsschutz beim Schweißen und verwandte Verfahren" ("Health and safety in welding and allied processes") at DIN.
