uvex occupational safety equipment for assembly and mechanics applications

Even though more and more processes are becoming fully automated as part of Industry 4.0, specialist personnel are still essential for assembly operations. Workers in these fields face many ergonomic challenges and need to demonstrate optimum sensitivity, right down to the fingertips.

The working conditions also require a great deal of physical exertion when completing tasks – whether it is having to stand, kneel or stretch for long periods of time. We are passionate about providing these workers with equipment that allows them to keep enjoying their work throughout their careers.

Wearer comfort and protection

When it comes to producing ergonomic PPE, uvex adopts a consistent approach to take into account body shapes and movements. This is evident in virtually every material group, be it protective clothing, gloves or head protection. Take the “faceguard” visors with short circuit electric arc protection for example; these allow the visor element to be pushed back into a resting position so that it sits centrally over the middle of the head to balance the weight load for the wearer’s neck and help to prevent fatigue and poor posture.

Touchscreen capability

The electromobility sector frequently impresses with innovative operating systems and displays. This technology often requires unrestricted use of touchscreens to optimise work processes. In this context, wearing safety gloves cannot be restrictive in any way, which is why “UVEX safety gloves”, which are made in Germany, place high value on sensitivity and being able to operate displays, regardless of whether protection against rough or sharp objects must be ensured at the same time or a special grip is required.

Lens materials

Polycarbonate (PC)

  • organic material with very high tensile strength
  • only limited chemical resistance
  • mechanical strength, class “F” (45 m/sec)
  • PC+ – polycarbonate lens that is thicker in the middle, especially for uvex RX goggles


  • organic material with high tensile strength
  • lightweight, also suitable for high prescriptions
  • excellent optical image reproduction properties, even for high prescriptions
  • excellent resistance to cleaning agents, oils and cosmetics
  • good scratch resistance
  • best all-round lens material
  • mechanical strength, class “F” (45 m/sec)

Anti-reflective coating


Anti-reflective coating is a layer applied to the inside and outside of lenses using vapour deposition. It significantly reduces reflections on the surfaces. It offers a cosmetic advantage and increases light transmission.

Three types of coating are available:

  • Normal anti-reflective coating
  • Multi anti-reflective coating
  • Super anti-reflective coating
UV blue protect

UV blue protect


A special absorber has been added to the lens material that completely filters out UV rays and reduces the blue light content.

  • The lenses absorb UV radiation up to 400 nm at 100%, filter short-wave blue light up to 410 nm almost completely and reduce the spectrum from 410 nm to 420 nm by 86%.
  • uvex UV blue protect lenses enhance contrast and effectively prevent signs of fatigue and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
  • The mechanical strength of the lenses is guaranteed – clear lenses with UV blue protect are marked 2C-1.2.
  • UV blue protect is optionally available for polycarbonate (PC) lenses and HI 1.67.
