Eyewear protection

Safety eyewear provides protection from spray and splatter from particles, liquids and dust, and from chemical product fumes and radiation.

How to protect yourself?

Select the most suitable protective glasses or shields.

  • Identify the type of risk: spray, radiation, other, …
  • Determine the type of protection: spectacles-type safety glasses, goggles, face mask, cover goggles.
  • Note the protective features: scratch-resistant, fog-resistant, tinted, ...
  • Select the type of eye-piece: one-piece or double lens.
  • Choose the frame type: design, classical, …

Filters

Special filters can eliminate certain parts of light and a high proportion of the electro-magnetic spectrum (ultraviolet rays, infrared rays…).

Marquage des oculaires

Lens marking is composed by 2 numbers (separated in the middle by a "-"):

CODE NUMBER:
from 2 to 6. Welding lens have no code number.
SCALE NUMBER:
from 1.1 (the highest % of transmission in visible light, the clearest lens)
to 16 (the lowest % of transmission in visible light, the darkest lens)
DELTA PLUS RANGE:
The yellow coloured possibilities are available in the DELTA PLUS range.

 

SYMBOL MEANING - EN166:
1: optical class allowing permanent wear of the spectacles

Mandatory performances
S: Increased robustness: steel ball of 22 mm diameter at 5.1 m/s. (18.36 km/h)
F: Low energy impact: steel ball of 6 mm diameter at 45 m/s. (162 km/h)
B: Medium energy impact: steel ball of 6 mm diameter at 120 m/s. (432 km/h)
A: High energy impact: steel ball of 6 mm diameter at 190 m/s. (684 km/h)

Optional performances
3: Liquid resistance (droplets or splashes).
4: Large dust particles resistance (size of > 5 μm).
5: Gas and fine dust particles resistance (size < 5 μm).
8: Short circuit electric arc resistance.
9: Resistance to splashes of molten metal and penetration of hot solids.
T: (F - B - A) Mechanical resistance to extreme temperatures -5°C/+55°C.
N: Resistance to fogging of lenses.
K: Resistance to surface damage by fine particles (anti-scratch).
