Safety eyewear - focus on innovation and quality

Work in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries is all too often accompanied by a number of mechanical, chemical and optical risks to eye health. Our diverse uvex eyewear range offers different designs, tints and coatings that are specially developed for use in laboratories, research and production environments. Whether you need safety glasses, goggles, over specs or prescription glasses, uvex have developed a range of safety eyewear solutions which meet the highest quality standards. With the unique coating technologies uvex supravision plus and uvex supravision excellence, our anti-fog safety spectacles offer the optimal solution for working safely and with a clear, unrestricted vision. Our wide range of safety spectacles are also particularly suitable for use in combination with respiratory masks. All uvex eyewear delivers edge to edge crystal clear clarity with 100% UV protection.

Autoclavable safety eyewear

uvex has developed the first autoclavable safety eyewear with anti-fog coating for specialist requirements in laboratories, clinics, and cleanrooms. The uvex CR range is the ideal safety eyewear for areas of application that require repeated autoclave sterilisation (15 to 20 times for 20 minutes each at maximum 121°C). The scratch-resistant coating on the outside of the lens helps prolong product life.

Choice of lens tints

Properly tinted safety eyewear can have a dramatic effect on the wearer’s vision, comfort and energy levels as well as concentration and productivity. Contrast-enhancing tints significantly improve depth perception with full signal colour recognition guaranteed.

Reliable UV protection

Working outside for long hours increases your exposure to damaging ultraviolet rays, even on cloudy days. uvex which stands for UltraViolet EXclusion is unique to the rest of the safety eyewear market in that it offers UV400 as standard across its entire range.

Permanent lens coatings

uvex is the world leader in lens coating technology, delivering coatings that are permanently bonded to the lens and so do not wash or wear off, even after extended wear or repeated cleaning. With a range of coatings available, uvex is able to offer the right solution for your working environment.

Safety glasses with prescription lenses

uvex is able to provide a choice of metal, plastic and wraparound frame styles in single vision, bi-focal or varifocal for safety or office use. Scratch-resistant lens coatings are supplied as standard and frames from uvex come with a two year guarantee for accidental damage and wear and tear. We are able to offer a prescription service to suit your needs whether you are a large or small organisation, in one or multiple locations.

Safety gloves - maximum protection with excellent tactile feel

uvex safety gloves guarantee the highest levels of safety and comfort. Continual innovations, well thought-out functions and the uvex mission of 'protecting people' allow us to develop safe, sustainable and ergonomic products. uvex protective gloves are essential for working with chemicals, cleaning products or in the laboratory and provide reliable protection against most chemicals. Thanks to their ergonomic fit, uvex gloves allow unrestricted, fine-motor movement and high tactile feel.

Respiratory masks — secure fit and optimal comfort

Particle-filtering respiratory masks are a must when handling chemical substances in laboratories and similar environments. The uvex silv-Air range of respiratory protection includes highly effective face masks in protective classes FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 that are extremely comfortable to wear. Protect yourself against solid and liquid aerosols, dust, mist and fumes– even during longer periods of use. At uvex, we not only make sure that all our products meet the requirements of the necessary safety class, but we also pay particular attention to making sure that they fit exceptionally well. As a system provider of PPE, our safety spectacles are also suitable for use in combination with our respiratory masks.

Safety footwear — ergonomic design for comfort and relief

Standing up all day has an impact on your whole body: As well as negatively affecting your feet and your the musculoskeletal system, long periods of standing can also result in fatigue and reduced concentration. The ergonomic safety footwear offered by uvex counteract these problems, providing the wearer with relief even on days that require a lot of walking and/or standing around. Our safety footwear complies with protection class S1, S1P, S2, S3 SRC, feature above-average shock absorption, avoid pressure points and are extreme slip resistant.
