uvex i-performance: next level equipment

This post is also available in: German

uvex stands for unparalleled innovation in the industrial health and safety sector. uvex will be presenting its uvex i-performance product range at the A+A 2013 trade fair this year, and in doing so will define just what modern industrial health and safety products can achieve. 

Like all great ideas, the uvex i-performance product range is effective in its simplicity: protective equipment is a must when performing intensive physical work, but it can often prove to be an additional burden on the wearer.

A new dimension in protection 

With the uvex i-performance range, uvex has significantly improved the performance of its personal protective equipment (PPE): the products deliver uvex’s typically high standard of protection whilst being optimised to ensure the equipment inhibits the wearer as little as possible and even supports certain movements. Ultimately, this reduces fatigue and allows wearers greater freedom of movement than other PPE.

Technology and comfort

uvex i-performance is not just a technical triumph. It is the next stage of the uvex 3D philosophy. The products are also completely adaptable, and the resultant added value for the wearer is clearer now than ever before.

Quantifiable benefits

The uvex i-performance range epitomises everything uvex and its products stand for: high levels of protection, the best standard of design, optimum quality, durability and, last but not least, a constant striving for improvement with clear, quantifiable added value for uvex customers. uvex i-performance products form a complete protection system from head to toe.

 

A new generation of products with many benefits

uvex i-3 AR provides optimum glare protection

The development team in the safety eyewear segment is inspired by the ergonomics and comfort specifications of uvex i-performance to create optimum glare protection: With an anti- reflective coating on both sides, the uvex i-3 AR achieves a transmission factor of more than 96.5% and thereby effectively prevents distracting reflections which occur from brightly lit displays.

 

uvex RX goggle: the first wide-vision goggles with prescription lenses. In contrast to standard solutions with overspecs or prescription inserts, the transmission factor of these goggles is up to 18% higher so optical aberrations are avoided.

The ingenious 360° ventilation of the uvex silv-Air eco respirator prevents fogging of eyewear on exhalation. Ergonomic design has also made hearing protection even better: uvex xact-band effectively prevents noise exposure. Sound absorbers integrated in the headband noticeably reduce potential sound interference that may result from the headband coming into contact with clothing.

 

Protection and Comfort through high tech materials

uvex 1 safety footwear is the perfect combination of protection, comfort and design: the consistent lightweight construction principle relieves strain for the wearer.

Reduced strain on the musculoskeletal system: uvex 1 safety footwear

The background: every gram less reduces the negative impact on the entire musculoskeletal system and fatigue. This effect is reinforced by energy absorption in the heel being twice that required by EN ISO 20345. uvex 1 safety footwear is a winning design and was presented with the Red Dot design award 2013.

The future starts now

Following an intensive development and testing phase, uvex i-performance products are being launched on the market to coincide with the A+A 2013. This range exemplifies what industrial safety products can achieve by pushing the boundaries of technical capabilities and putting the sole focus on making them work for the user. This is the start of protecting people in a new dimension.
