Grey is the New Green for uvex’s Breakthrough Welding Filter Lens Full Colour Recognition and No Misting while Welding
30 June 2015
uvex is the first company to develop a unique grey-tint welding filter lens, which not only gives 100% ultraviolet and infrared protection and reduces glare but also gives perfect natural colour recognition in accordance EN172, unlike traditional green-tint welding lenses, which can alter colours.
Correct colour vision is vital in welding tasks where safety can depend on the correct recognition of colours in safety signs and signals, in areas such as foundries, steelworks, aerospace or engineering. According to the HSE, a person with a colour vision defect perceives a wide range of different colours as being the same, and often is not aware of their defective colour vision until costly mistakes are made.
Brand new to the market, uvex’s new range of grey welding filter lenses, which come in three different shades of grey, is also the first to featurethe permanent anti-fog lens coating technology uvex infradur AF, which prevents the inside of the lenses misting up. And the exceptionally scratch-resistant coating on the outside of the lens gives excellent levels of protection against damage from welding sparks.
The grey lens provides increased impact protection, in contrast to the old-style green welding lens, in which the green tint could weaken the mechanical strength of the lens.
Because of its revolutionary qualities, the comfortable new grey lens ensures wearer compliance and so increases safety and health in the workplace, fully protecting the wearer’s eyes during the welding process.
The range comprises uvex’s popular spectacle, uvex super fit welding, the fully adjustable uvex i-vo welding spectacle, the uvex super F OTG welding over spec and the uvex ultrasonic flip up welding goggle. They all come with different welding lens shade options.
