Gafas de seguridad graduadas de uvex

El lugar de trabajo industrial puede suponer una serie de riesgos para la visión de los empleados. Los empleados pueden estar expuestos a peligros que van desde el polvo y los escombros, las pequeñas astillas y los fragmentos más grandes de vidrio, metal o madera hasta los productos químicos, las chispas o los impactos de la maquinaria en movimiento. Para proteger a los empleados de este tipo de incidentes, las gafas de seguridad graduadas uvex están diseñadas para sustituir las gafas personales de los empleados y soportar los rigores del lugar de trabajo.

Las gafas de seguridad graduadas uvex están certificadas y marcadas de acuerdo con la norma EN 166, por lo que pueden utilizarse en los lugares de trabajo donde las gafas de seguridad son obligatorias. Como gafas de seguridad laboral, no sólo protegen los ojos (de la radiación UV, las partículas , el polvo, etc.), sino que también son una ayuda visual porque las lentes tienen un efecto dióptrico. uvex ofrece una amplia gama de materiales de lente, tipos de enfoque y monturas de alta calidad. Esto facilita el cambio entre las gafas personales y las gafas de seguridad proporcionadas por el empleador, ayudando a aumentar la aceptación del usuario.

El amplio sistema de calidad de uvex garantiza el mejor diseño desde el punto de vista de la tecnología óptica y de procesamiento. Todos los materiales utilizados, incluidas las lentes, las monturas, los estuches, etc., están libres de sustancias nocivas y se inspeccionan periódicamente.

What difference does it make during an impact?

Versatile lens cleaner and de-mister in one

Glasses that steam up are not only an annoying distraction but in the workplace can pose an addtional hazard. The uvex antifog cloth provides a solution; simply wipe the cloth over your lenses and an ultra-thin layer of uvex's unique anti-fog formula is applied to the lens preventing them from misting up, resulting in streak-free, clear vision for hours.

Cost effective - can be reused up to 60 times and used as a general cleaning cloth thereafter
Less waste - reusable cloth minimises waste compared to single use alternatives
Easy to store - store in the zip bag provided, ideal for a pocket or bag
Easy to use - simply wipe both sides of the lens with the antifog cloth
Long-lasting - 8 to 10 hours of anti-fog performance depending on environmental factors

We recommend anti-reflective lenses for work at a VDU. An anti-reflective metal oxide coating is applied, which ensures a significant reduction in reflections on the inner and outer sides of the lens. It also offers a cosmetic advantage and increases light transparency of the lens and vision clarity is improved.

Multi anti-reflective coating:

  • Maximum reduction of reflections
  • Metal oxide is applied several times to each surface
  • Residual reflection < 2%
uvex anti-reflective coating
Polycarbonate (PC)
  • Organic material with very high impact resistanceh
  • Inherently soft allowing it to absorb impacts, ideal for safety eyewear
  • Only limited resistance to chemicals
  • Mechanical strength, class “F” (45 m/sec)
  • PC+ – polycarbonate lens that is thicker in the middle, especially for uvex RX goggles

HI (high index), organic lens materials with high refractive index

  • Organic-material lenses with a refractive index of 1.6 or 1.67 are optically more effective (than CR 39)
  • With less material and less curved surfaces, the lens has the required optical effect
  • The lens is thinner and looks more attractive
  • Recommended for prescriptions > +/-4.0 dpt.: HI 1.6
  • Recommended for prescriptions > +/-6.0 dpt.: HI 1.67
  • Mechanical strength, class “S” (ball drop test)
  • Also known as: plastic
  • Not suitable for safety spectacles unless modified, as the tensile strength is otherwise too low. The middle of the lens must be thicker in order to meet the requirements for tensile strength.
  • Organic, lightweight material
  • Very good optical performance even for high prescriptions
  • Suitable for working with chemicals and paints/varnishes
  • Good scratch resistance due to hard coating (optional)
  • Mechanical strength, class “S” (ball drop test)
Hard glass
  • Also known as: crown glass, silicate, mineral glass, glass
  • Not suitable for safety spectacles unless modified, as the tensile strength is otherwise too low
  • Tensile strength is increased by thermal or chemical curing
  • Mechanical strength, class “S” (ball drop test) extremely scratch-resistant surface, suitable for working with chemicals and paint
  • Heavy, not suitable for prescriptions higher than +/-4.0 dpt.
  • Protects against flying sparks during welding and grinding work
  • Protects against molten metal splashes and hot solid projections

Tinted lenses provide effective protection against glare in areas with high light intensity.

Constant tinting
• Available in brown and grey
• Tinting levels: 82% (light), 38% (medium), 15% (dark)

Variable tinting – Variomatic™
• Lenses tint automatically, depending on the UV radiation and temperature
• Tinting of between approx. 8% and 80% in brown or grey
• Available with polycarbonate and CR39 lens material
