uvex welding PPE solutions

Welding operations present several hazards to both those undertaking the activity and others in the vicinity, so it's important that employees are aware of the risks welding possess and understand the best PPE to select for optimum protection. Ensuring high levels of safety is vital when undertaking any welding activity with the risks in any workplace need to be assessed, controlled and monitored.

Exposure to UV and IR Radiation
Looking at the intense bloom of UV light produced when welding, without appropriate PPE, can result in a painful and sometimes long-lasting condition called arc-eye. Many factors can affect the severity of a flash burn injury, such as distance, duration and the angle of penetration. Long-term exposure to arc flashes could also potentially result in cataracts and lead to a loss of vision. Other forms of eye damage include: Foreign bodies entering the eye, including grit, sparks and dust. Particulate fumes and gases, which could lead to conjunctivitis.

A new generation of welding protection eyewear

Unlike traditional green welding tint products, the innovative technology behind the uvex grey-tint lenses affords protection from UV and infrared light while maintaining perfect colour recognition in accordance with uvex sun glare filters. This range is also the first to feature anti-fog lens coating technology.

The special uvex infradur plus coating has anti-fog properties which prevents the inside of the lenses misting up and the extreme scratch-resistance on the outside keeps damage from welding sparks to an absolute minimum. With various welding safety spectacles and goggle solutions, there is something for everyone – enhancing comfort and the wearer experience. All welding products have polycarbonate lenses providing protection against impact as well as UV rays, IR rays and visible glare.
