Excellent eye protection
Safety spectacles from uvex have won several prizes and awards, including the following:
PLUS X Award 2022 for highest quality and design
uvex suXXeed represents state-of-the-art technology in terms of safety, style and sustainability – integral elements of the uvex mission “protecting people” – which is why it was awarded with the 2022 PLUS X Award for High Quality and Design. Technical requirements set out in the safety standard were implemented without compromise to create an outstandingly distinct design. As a result, the glasses offer optimum protection, while also sporting a style good enough to wear outside of work. Sporty features such as dynamic lines and a combination of matt and glossy design elements, as well as the company’s characteristic ‘X’, set the product apart when it comes to style. Soft components are always used at the necessary points so that uvex suXXeed eyewear is wonderfully comfortable to wear. Uniting these two aspects – safety and comfort – was our primary focus when developing uvex suXXeed. The design increases safety at the workplace due to wearer acceptance and relieves the burden on the environment thanks to its durability and longer service life, which in turn reduces resource consumption.
Red Dot Product Design Award 2022 for uvex i-range
The uvex i-range is our new 3-in-1 safety eyewear range with the right products to meet virtually any requirement thanks to its modular concept. Thanks to our sophisticated coating technology and its new, unique design, our product range offers stability, comfort and durability alongside a modern style. The lens design offers a virtually unrestricted field of vision, while the x-tended sideshield provides increased side protection. On top of this, the product range offers maximum sustainability since individual parts can be replaced as required. We have also developed the i-range planet series, which uses recycled plastics or plastics manufactured from biological resources.
iF Design Award 2022 for uvex pure-fit
uvex pure-fit represents what uvex stands for: safety, style and sustainability. New production technology makes it possible to manufacture safety spectacles from just one material: polycarbonate. This means that the spectacles are 100% recyclable. Like other uvex products, they guarantee full protection for the wearer and are as sustainable as possible. Which is why the spectacles are the well-deserved winner of the 2022 iF Design Award.
PLUS X Award 2020 for highest customer satisfaction in the safety eyewear category
How reliable is a brand promise and how satisfied are german customers with their brand after purchase? Around 3,509 people completed the survey for the Innovation Award for Brand Quality and decided: uvex safety delivers the highest level of customer satisfaction in the safety eyewear category.
