Roadside assistance and rescue operations
uvex occupational safety equipment for roadside assistance and rescue operations involving electric vehicles
Breakdown and recovery services face particular challenges when it comes to electric vehicles, as the batteries are not only charged, but the condition and safety of the battery pack cannot be accurately assessed beforehand. In extreme cases, chemicals, high currents and high voltages can pose great risks for the health of these service personnel.
As a manufacturer of personal protective equipment, uvex offers all the necessary products from head to toe: multi-functional clothing for short circuit electric arc and chemical protection, safety gloves, boots for tough conditions and much more.
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 assistance personnel on roads can be clearly and easily seen beyond the reach of the reflective element of their clothing.
The constant growth of the electromobility sector and the use of high-performance batteries significantly increase the risk of dangers relating to electrical power. There are risks both in terms of voltage (voltage protection) and current (short circuit electric arc protection), or the leakage of potentially toxic/corrosive electrolyte substances (chemical protection).
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.
When it comes to producing ergonomic PPE, uvex adopts a consistent approach to take into account body shapes and movement. 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 thereby help to prevent fatigue and poor posture.

uvex RX cd - comfort & design
uvex RX – plastic frames
- 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 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
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.
