    Safety glasses with Side Shields for High-Impact

    Avoid relying on inexpensive side shields for your eyes. ANSI Z87.1-2020 certifies impact protection and there are various models, sizes, and colors to choose from. You can buy them separately or as part of the practical combo compliance package.

    The impact-resistant glasses side shields also filter 99% of dangerous UV radiation to keep you safe from all sides. All safety glasses side shields are available in multiple shades and can be purchased separately or in packs.

    The most recent ANSI standards mandate that safety glasses have side shields. The extra components on both sides of safety eyewear are called side shields, and they shield your eyes.

    Prescription safety glasses with side shields can protect the eyes from flying debris, such as fluids, wood, metal shavings, and other things. Side shields come in two varieties: clip-on and permanently fastened.

    Side Shields with Clips                 

    Simply said, clip-on side shields attach to safety glasses via a clip. The benefit of wearing safety glasses for an employee is that they can remove the side shields, allowing them to use them at home or while they're not on duty.

    These days, protective eyewear frames are so stylish that it's difficult to distinguish them from streetwear frames. Thus, clip-on side shields are popular among employees to wear outside their workplace.

    Employers dislike the clip-on side shields because they can misplace or break their side shields easily. Employers are not in compliance with safety standards if a worker uses eye protection without side shields.

    Permanent Side shields

    Permanent side shields are fastened to the frame's temple in a process known as the "t lock," which secures the side shield and prevents it from being removed. Permanent side shields prevent workers from removing them from their safety glasses, guaranteeing compliance and protection.

     Consider protection, compliance, and use outside the workplace when determining which choice is ideal for you.

    Please take note that all approved safety side shields for glasses need to be marked in a certain way to comply with the most recent version of the ANSI Z87 standard. If your side shields lack correct markings, they do not stick to safety regulations and do not offer sufficient defense.
