For workers who are required to move between indoor and outdoor environments, swapping eyewear is often regarded as a hassle, with many workers avoiding wearing appropriate eyewear and putting themselves at risk of injury.
Unlike protective eyewear which uses standard lenses, photochromic lenses automatically adjust to changing light conditions and are engineered to switch from a clear lens to a grey lens when exposed to UV light, eliminating the need for workers to carry a separate pair of safety glasses for outdoor use.
Depending on the level of UV brightness, glasses with photochromic lenses darken on sunny days and will gradually reduce to an optimal lens shade on overcast or cloudy days - ensuring an appropriate level of protection at all times when lighting conditions change.
In addition to enhancing visual performance by increasing the worker's ability to distinguish objects of different sizes, brightness & contrast, photochromic lenses also assist to reduce solar glare and eye fatigue in both darker and brighter environments.
By wearing safety eyewear with photochromic lenses workers can rest assured that they will always receive the correct amount of visual protection – no matter the type or time of day!
The Honeywell SolarPro™ is a premium style of safety eyewear which features high performance photochromic lenses to provide wearers with superior protection and coverage in a wide range of applications.
From construction, utility line work, landscaping, oil and gas industries and any other industry where glare from the sun can cause eye strain, the Honeywell SolarPro™’s sport-inspired wrap-around and 100% dielectric design will provide workers with close up facial protection.
For added protection, and to extend the life of the lenses, Honeywell SolarPro™ photochromic lenses can be coated using the latest in lens coating technology – the Supra-dura™ and Dura-streme™ - as well as anti-fog and hard-coat lens coatings.
A high performance anti-scratch coating which is permanently bonded to the lens, the Supra-dura™ provides up to five times more lens life than other hardcoat lens coatings on the market. The Dura-streme™ lens coating, combining a Honeywell anti fog coating on the inside of the lens with a Sperian hard coat on the outside of the lens, provides up to three times more lens life than standard anti fog coatings on the market.
For increased safety and long wearing comfort, the Honeywell SolarPro™ also includes soft temple tip pads, a soft padded nose piece, ratcheting temples for adjustability to ensure the perfect fit for any face, and is certified to AS/NZS 1337.1 : 2010 for Medium Impact Protection.
