uvex pheos faceguard
The crowning glory of the uvex pheos faceguard is our high-quality polycarbonate visor. Thanks to uvex coating technology, the lens is anti-fog on the inside and extremely scratch- and chemical-resistant on the outside.
This provided the basis for the overall design and development of a functional and modern headpiece. Various attachments can be added to the headpiece, making the face protection an impressive multi-system. The lens fits comfortably on the wearer's face and can easily be flipped up over the head when not in use. The slim design ensures that the guard does not get in the way, offering maximum freedom of movement.
A wide neck piece ensures that the system fits securely and comfortably on the wearer's head. The width adjustment mechanism means the neck piece can be adjusted to any size with one hand—even when wearing gloves—to guarantee a perfect fit. Earmuffs can be attached and removed quickly using a bayonet lock — perfect for moving between environments with different noise levels.
This allows the multi-system to be customised to perfectly suit your needs, so you can use the face protection for a range of applications.
1) The centre of gravity is over the middle of the head, thereby relieving strain on the neck muscles and spine
(2) Wheel ratchet system with wide uvex spiderneck neck piece for size adjustment — variable width adjustment with one hand for optimal customisation and a comfortable fit (for head sizes 52–64)
(3) Earmuffs can be removed easily via a bayonet lock for additional hearing protection
(4) Customised system height adjustment for an optimal fit
(5) Replaceable suspension harness with sweatband can be perfectly adjusted to any head shape
(6) Multi-position lockable visor with replaceable lens
(7) Visor made of robust polycarbonate with spring mechanism for locking in any position. The outside of the lens is scratch-resistant, while the inside offers an anti-fog coating plus UV400 protection
Ready to use
The uvex pheos faceguard is a fully pre-assembled face protection system. This means there is no need to connect the individual components; it is ready for use immediately. There are two different versions available (with and without hearing protection), as well as various attachments to expand the system.
Sturdy polycarbonate visor with anti-fog and scratch-resistant uvex supravision excellence coating. The anti-fogging properties are permanent, even with frequent cleaning. The non-stick nanotechnology ensures effortless cleaning under running water. UV400 offers the highest level of protection against UV rays. The visor's large field of vision offers a wide, unrestricted view.
The visor features a spring-loaded coupling rod for variable locking and sits centrally above the head in its resting position when not in use. This promotes a natural posture and minimises strain on the neck. The slim design also ensures that the guard does not get in the way, offering maximum freedom of movement. The wide uvex spiderneck neck piece ensures that the system fits securely and comfortably on the wearer's head. The width adjustment mechanism means the neck piece can be adjusted to any size with one hand—even when wearing gloves—to guarantee a perfect fit.
Modular and adaptable
The uvex pheos faceguard is an expandable multi-system with a wide range of accessories that is constantly growing. We pride ourselves on offering modular products with maximum compatibility — which is why the visor lens, earmuffs, suspension harness and sweatband are all replaceable. Hearing protection accessories can be attached and removed quickly using a bayonet lock. A slide-on sun visor for outdoor work and a click-in chin strap for working upside down offer additional protection. The system can also easily be combined and expanded with prescription spectacles or a respirator. This makes the uvex pheos faceguard the perfect product for a wide range of applications.

What do we think about the uvex pheos faceguard?
"I've tested lots of different combinations of face and hearing protection when cutting objects free under tough conditions. I noticed there was a gap in the market for an all-in-one, ergonomic system that fits comfortably on the head. Accessories such as sun protection and decent spare parts solutions for replacement lenses, sweatbands or sealing pads on earmuffs are difficult to find — that's if you can even find them at all. This experience told us exactly what our new uvex pheos faceguard needed to offer, and led us to create a system with limitless functionality and maximum modularity."

Did you know that our neck is already exposed to four to five kilograms at a zero degree angle of inclination? The further the incline, the greater the strain. This is often the case in industrial applications. Find out how this affected the design of the uvex pheos faceguard in our uvex expert blog.
