Uvex Strategy Goggles May 14 2018

In all sensory organs of our bodies, the eyes are the most important and most sensitive. Nearly all our perception of the world around us is credited to the eyes. Moreover, our eyes accord us protection guaranteed by it natural features such as eyelashes, eyelids, tears, and blink reflex. Unfortunately, these levels of protection are insufficient in the industrial world.

In the workplace, if risks cannot be completely eliminated through operational and technical procedures, then personal protective equipment (PPE). Some countries legislation stipulates that it is the employers’ obligation to fully analyze and evaluate the possible dangers in the working environment and, further ensure protective gear, including safety eyewear, is made available to employees where required, free of charge.

PPE standards have always been defined and both they and eye protection guidelines are intended to help company owners fulfill accident prevention regulations and occupational health and safety government directives. Additionally, they are intended to show ways to prevent work-related accidents, health hazards, and illnesses.

All protective eyewear products are tested in accordance with these directives through exposure to different dangers associated with damage to the eyes and impaired vision. All customized protective eyewear with coated lenses is labeled K or N accordingly.

What do the K and N labels mean?

  1. ‘K’ labeling

K labeled products feature a high degree of scratch-resistance in environments littered with dirt and dust. If safety eyewear is labeled K, the lenses have been certified as resistant to damage from small particles like sand and as have a light density coefficient of less than 5.

K labeled protective eyewear are ideal for the following environments:

  • Steel and other metal industries
  • Mining
  • Construction and Building industry
  • Machine cutting

These safety glasses offer protection against minute physical threats against the eyes.

  1. ‘N’ labeling

N labeled protective products are suitable for working environments with high humidity and frequent condensation taking place. If safety eyewear is labeled N, the lenses have been certified as resistant to fogging and will remain fog-free for at least 8 seconds, even after being immersed in water.

K labeled protective eyewear are ideal for the following environments:

  • Paper industry
  • Textile industry
  • Food processing
  • Refrigerated warehouses
