A clear view of Protective Eyewear...

Dust and other air-born particles create a common hazard on most construction sites. They include silica, which is present in sand, concrete and mortar and non-silica in brick dust, gypsum, cement and limestone. And let’s not forget the larger projectiles that may be encountered like wood and metal debris from the circular saw and the grinder. It’s prudent to wear eye protection but essential that it doesn’t inhibit the task in hand.
