uvex occupational safety equipment for roadside assistance and rescue operations

Roadside assistance and rescue operations are entrusted to select employees, however, these workers often don't know what situation or risk they will encounter when at the scene. In addition, changing weather conditions and poor visibility make their job even harder.

If accidents occur in these fields due to a lack of protective equipment, the health of those concerned is very often put at extreme risk. It is precisely because of this that uvex sets out to manufacture products that go above and beyond the respective standards and impress users in terms of visibility, wearer acceptance and comfort. Try the products and see for yourself!

High-visibility 2.0

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 rescue team or breakdown mechanic visible in good time. “uvex protection active flash” additionally equips certified high-visibility clothing with high-quality light guides to make sure that vulnerable workers on roads can be clearly and easily seen beyond the reach of the reflective element of their clothing.

Protection against voltage

In the field of electromobility, the use of high-performance batteries and uncertain rescue situations heightens the risk due to voltage. 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.

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

Finishes

Tint

Tinted lenses provide effective protection against glare in areas with high light intensity (for example, sunlight)

 

Constant tinting:

  • 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

 

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
