Eye Protection Equipment

Eyeshields, also called safety glasses or spectacles not only provide protection against flying debris and chemical splashes but may also protect against visible and near visible light or radiation from UV rays. Lightweight frames are typically made from plastic with polycarbonate lenses. Polycarbonate is light and shatter-resistant, making it the best material for impact protection. Modern eyeshield design offer antislip nose bridges, antifog lenses and coatings making them resistant to acids, caustics and hydrocarbons.
