Electrics and electronics
In terms of their technical development, vehicles impress with increasingly sophisticated electronics that ensure maximum driver comfort and safety.
In order to install the smallest electronic parts without damaging them requires workers to demonstrate good dexterity as well as the use of high-quality materials that guarantee that all components will continue to function in the long term. When developing our products for these applications, we focus on producing ESD-capable protective equipment as well as protecting people who work on live electrical equipment.
In many industrial companies, performing work on live electrical equipment is part of everyday life. Complex switchgear and live components pose high risks for the workers concerned. In the event of an arc flash occurring, the focus is on protecting the hands, head and body. As a system provider of PPE, uvex truly understands that different elements of protective equipment must be designed to be compatible with one another and minimise risk. Clothing that meets the requirements of various standards, visors for short circuit electric arcs and gloves for high-voltage applications are everyday essentials in these fields.
As a manufacturer of PPE for the whole body, uvex is committed to ensuring that in any areas where special protection of sensitive technology is additionally required, the people concerned also enjoy the highest level of comfort in accordance with our mission “protecting people”. High cut protection must not be an impediment and is ensured thanks to the use of high-quality materials. Ergonomic clothing and shoes in accordance with ESD specifications enable wearers to comply with high product requirements even on long work days.
UV400 vs. UV380
The WHO recommends UV protection up to 400 nm. For uvex, this has always been a given.

Prescription safety spectacles and VDU spectacles for applications in the field of electrics and electronics
- 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)
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
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
