Working sustainably

Comfort, fit, performance, and style

Finding and choosing the right protection can be tough, and there’s no question that most existing safety glasses on the market are uncomfortable, restrictive, fog up fast, and are even unattractive. Plus, they’re usually treated as a “one size fits all” solution instead of taking into consideration different face shapes, applications, work environments, and more.

For safety managers who are tasked with making sure employees are wearing their safety eyewear when it’s required as well as supplying them with the right pair they need on the job, these factors make it tricky. The wrong safety eyewear can lead to workers avoiding protection when they need it most, and eventually, an injury.

Need help choosing the right style?

Selection of the appropriate safety eyewear for each specific task, and the hazards involved, is critical to avoid the risk of injury. Using the right safety eyewear benefits both the employer and employee, seeing a reduction in costs and waste; increased efficiency and productivity; improved health and safety; increased acceptance of PPE; and the need for lower stock levels.

uvex supravision excellence

Fogged, scratched or dirty lenses increase the risk of accidents in everyday working life. uvex has been known for innovative coating technologies for decades. In our competence centre in Fürth, we develop and produce scratch-resistant and anti-fog coatings using our unique flow coating method which enables a specific coating to be applied on each side of the lens, allowing the coating to work at it's optimum performance. Other manufacturers use a dipping method that coats both sides of the lens with a mixture of scratch-resistant and anti-fog coatings, diluting the performance of each of the coatings.

uvex supravision plus

Wearing safety eyewear in places with frequent temperature fluctuations or high-humidity environments can cause the lenses to fog up, leading to severe or continuous fogging issues. Chemically engineered to not wash off, uvex’s anti-fog coatings are fundamentally different from others – that’s because all uvex anti-fog coatings are hydrophilic, which causes fog moisture to absorb into the lens acting like a sponge, eliminating fog quickly and efficiently.

Finding the right lens tint for every environment

The right tint on your lenses can help lessen eye strain, fatigue and can increase clarity of vision. It is important to choose the most appropriate lens tint for your environment to ensure you are not putting additional strain on your eyes. Lens tinting can provide better visibility, increased contrast and reduced glare. uvex offer lens tinting solutions for a wide range of light environments and with 10 lens tints available, it is easy to choose the best solution for your particular application. Our new digital lens tinting advisor helps you find the perfect tinting for your application.
