uvex occupational safety equipment for metalworking

Metalworking covers a wide range of trades and activities — from the installation of railings, fences, gates, doors and windows to the production and installation of lifts, vehicle construction, locking and security technology or the installation of metal facades, all the way through to heavy duty metal/steel structures for bridges, halls and cranes. Complex processes that have to be completed flawlessly, even at high altitudes or in confined spaces, require maximum precision. uvex has always developed and produced personal protective equipment that supports you and your employees in meeting these requirements.

Eye protection for metalworking

When working on milling machines, with angle grinders or in the machining of metal and wood more generally, serious accidents caused by flying foreign objects can occur very quickly, which can cause (permanent) eye damage. Well-fitting safety spectacles can prevent this. For your protection we have been developing and producing safety spectacles ("Made in Germany") for a wide variety of applications for almost 100 years.

When it comes to eye protection, there is no such thing as one perfect pair of safety spectacles. Depending on the respective task, a number of characteristics play a role.

Foot protection for metalworking

Our safety shoes and work shoes in the S1P and S3 protection classes provide optimal protection during indoor and outdoor activities. As a rule, safety shoes are worn throughout the working day and must, in our view, do more than simply protect. We therefore place great importance on wearer comfort, attractive design and breathability.

Hearing protection for metalworking

Noise-induced hearing loss has been acknowledged as one of the top three occupational diseases for many years. Noise levels that are too high cause hearing damage slowly, painlessly and irreversibly. That's why we have developed hearing protection for a variety of situations and noise levels — whether that's disposable or reusable earplugs, banded ear protectors or passive/active earmuffs.
