Logistics and building sites
uvex occupational safety equipment for the logistics sector and building sites
We are so happy to see the developments and continuously innovative changes that our customers in the automotive sector are making. New buildings and production plants are erected, while dispatch routes and storage solutions are optimised.
It is essential to provide protective equipment that delivers thanks to its ergonomic design and wearer acceptance despite situational noise exposure and changing weather conditions. Using screens in the logistics sector or operating construction machinery should not be adversely affected as a result of the user or operator wearing our products; in fact, our products should act as a protective companion for employees.
For people affected by changing weather conditions and safety hazards that are difficult to see, a special type of protection is required. The mere brightness and reflective quality of high-visibility clothing that meets the requirements of EN ISO 20471 are often not enough to make a worker visible in good time to a test driver or someone driving logistics vehicles, for example. “uvex protection active flash” also equips certified high-visibility clothing with high-quality light guides to make sure that vulnerable workers in areas such as logistics and building sites can be clearly and easily seen beyond the reach of the reflective element of their clothing.
Special protection for workers’ hands is particularly important in the area of logistics, where a wide range of goods and packaging materials are handled. However, state-of-the-art technology often requires unrestricted use of touchscreens to optimise work processes. The wearing of safety gloves must not be restrictive in any way, which is why “UVEX safety gloves” - made in Germany - place high value on sensitivity and being able to operate displays, regardless of whether protection against rough or sharp objects is required at the same time.
When it comes to choosing PPE, protection against UVA and UVB rays is often disregarded. While optimum UV protection for the eyes and skin must be guaranteed for outdoor logistics operations and building sites, there are also hazards in indoor areas due to the amount of blue light (HEV, high-energy visible light) processed by the eyes during intensive media usage (PCs, tablets etc.) and changing light bulbs to LED lighting solutions. Safety spectacles made by uvex offer you optimum protection and maximum visibility both inside and outside. Protective clothing with designated UV protection also enables staff to work safely even on very sunny days.
Eye protection for logistics applications and building sites
UV400 vs. UV380
The WHO recommends UV protection up to 400 nm. For uvex, this has always been a given.

Tinted lenses provide effective protection against glare in areas with high light intensity (for example, sunlight)
- Available in brown or grey
- Tinting levels: 15%, 25%, 65%, 75%
Variable tinting – Variomatic™
- Lenses tint automatically, depending on the intensity of the UV radiation and temperature
- Tinting of approx. 8% to 80% in brown
- Available on polycarbonate and Trivex™ prescription safety lenses
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
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
