uvex occupational safety equipment for bodywork and metalworking applications

Do your employees process and finish raw metal materials to make vehicle components or bodywork? These workplaces are often characterised by sharp metal, flying sparks and swarf, as well as heat from welding and grinding. It is in precisely these work areas that accident protection and ergonomics are particularly important. uvex constantly develops products in close collaboration with metalworking companies that achieve maximum protection and wearer acceptance for your staff.

High cut protection and skin compatibility

When it comes to handling sharp pieces of metal, there are justifiably strict requirements for safety gloves and protective clothing. The majority of accidents involve minor to severe cuts. Therefore, it is crucial to adequately protect the workers concerned and ensure optimum comfort, even under difficult working conditions. uvex achieves this through the use of innovative textiles that are comfortable on the skin, even for allergy sufferers, due to natural fibres (e.g. bamboo) and dermatological tests and protect the wearer at the same time.

Individual test procedures for PPE

In addition to the skin compatibility of gloves and textiles, the protective function of PPE must also undergo specific test procedures. However, no standards currently set out an official procedure relating to the risk of flying sparks (e.g. during grinding operations). uvex therefore develops its own test stations for these types of risks that check the performance of uvex PPE in practice and thereby ensure that wearers are optimally protected.

Limitless protection for your hearing

In metalworking operations - in addition to protective clothing, safety gloves and safety spectacles - optimum hearing protection is essential equipment for the workers concerned. uvex not only offers a wide range of hearing protection earplugs of different sizes and with various characteristics, but also ear defenders and individual otoplastics. Otoplastics are moulded by trained staff and ensure voice clarity, benefit from a sustainable design and are extremely comfortable for workers to wear.

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

Trivex™

  • Organic material with high tensile strength
  • Lightweight, also suitable for high prescriptions
  • Very good optical image reproduction properties even on high prescriptions
  • Very high resistance to cleaning solutions, oils, cosmetics
  • Good scratch resistance
  • Best all-round lens material
  • Mechanical strength, class “F” (45 m/sec)
Finishes

Anti-reflective coating

 

Anti-reflective coating is 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 until 410 nm almost completely and reduce the range from 410 nm to 420 nm around 86%.
  • uvex UV blue protect lenses enhance contrast and effectively prevent signs of fatigue and age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
  • UV blue protect is optionally available for polycarbonate (PC) lenses and HI 1.67
  • the mechanical strength of the lenses is guaranteed — clear lenses with UV blue protect are marked 2C-1.2 according to EN 170
