What is sealed eyewear?

Sealed safety eyewear, also called closed eyewear, has become increasingly popular due to its unique style and performance abilities. With a more universal fit and diverse application range, foam inserts are a great option for workers and safety managers who want to maintain high levels of PPE compliance and compatibility while adequately protecting against dirt, debris, and splashes to the eyes.

uvex carbonvision is an example of sealed safety eyewear

Often referred to as "spoggles" in the industry, eyewear with foam inserts falls into the middle spectrum between safety glasses and safety goggles by bringing a unique solution to the table by combining the two. The intention with foam inserts is to create a low-profile, almost complete seal to the face, whereas regular well-fitting safety glasses tend to have a small gap inbetween the lenses and your face. This seal is great for use in dry or windy environments outdoors or for applications where airborne dust, debris or splashes are present.

Safety eyewear with an insert doesn’t eliminate the need for offering multiple options and fit testing. Like all safety eyewear, a proper fit test must be conducted with all employees in order to best understand what type of eyewear should be used for each person. If you’d like to undertake a fit programme and trial any of our products, simply fill in our quick form to make an appointment with your regional sales manager.

Safety lenses – how strong are they?

The strength of safety spectacles and goggles is tested by firing a 6mm ball bearing at the lens – neither the lens nor the frame must break, come apart or bounce off the face. Safety goggles are designed to give protection from high speed materials or particles (for example, when cutting, grinding or using equipment that involves explosive force or pressure such as nail guns or compressed air tools). Goggles are tested to 120 m/s (B medium impact) and spectacles are tested to 45 m/s (F low impact).

FLow energy impact: up to 45 m/s
BMedium energy impact: up to 120 m/s
