Sustainable, versatile and safe: uvex unveils new safety eyewear range

uvex has launched a new collection of safety eyewear that offers protection for workers as well as the planet.

The uvex i-range comprises three models that protect against a wide variety of workplace hazards. They all feature large, flat lenses for an unrestricted field of vision with an x-tended sideshield to provide additional protection from hazards.

The uvex i-lite spectacles have a modern design with ergonomically shaped side arms that provide a secure fit without pressure. They utilise uvex supravision coating technology for permanent anti-fog and scratch-resistance, delivering optimal vision during work. The side arms also feature multi-incline points to allow for a high level of individualisation, ensuring a good fit for all facial shapes and head widths.

The uvex i-guard spectacles feature the same benefits with the addition of a soft, flexible face seal made from recycled materials. Adapting to any facial shape without pressure, the seal provides protection against liquids, particles and dirt, marking 3 and 4 in accordance with EN 166.

The uvex i-guard+ safety goggles, meanwhile, include a headband that offers increased impact protection. Ideally suited for demanding work, uvex i-guard+ goes above and beyond the minimum requirements and provides increased mechanical strength.

In addition to the standard uvex i-range, uvex has unveiled the i-range planet. As part of uvex’s ‘protecting planet’ focus, it features the same three models but created with recycled and bio-based materials and resource-saving manufacturing.

The side arms of the uvex i-guard planet, for example, are made from 39% bio-based materials. uvex also uses renewable raw material from the castor oil plant and energy from biomass sources to produce the eyewear.

uvex’s Clair Weston says: “Protecting people has always been our core focus at uvex and the uvex i-range boasts a variety of innovative products to keep workers safe from different workplace hazards and environments. With sustainability becoming ever more important, we’re also working harder than ever to protect the planet. Our uvex i-range planet products set new standards on sustainability without compromising uvex’s rigorous safety standards.”
