ABOUT EYE PROTECTION

TYPES

Always select eye protection based on the task at hand. Then focus on comfort, because if the goggles do not fit well it will not be used. Do not underestimate the design. Select a smart pair of glasses that suit your personality. The product range is extensive, so there is no reason to compromise. One model does not fit all, and it is important that you feel comfortable wearing your protective eye wear. Use protective eye wear as long as you are exposed to a risk - even with short-term work. It is 'often' the small tasks that tend to go wrong.​ Eye protection must provide protection against one or more of the following exposures:

MECHANICAL Flying fragments or particles, e.g. in connection with grinding or polishing work.
CHEMICAL Contact with harmful or corrosive substances e.g. sodium or acid.
OPTICAL Relating to welding, display device work, contact with laser radiation, and more.

TYPES
The different types of eye protection can be divided into:
FRAMED GLASSESCover the eyes only, not impermeable, no side shields.
GOGGLESCover the eye area, can be impermeable as well as ventilated, with the latter not being liquid- and gas-proof.
VISORSCover most of the face, protect against flying particles and fluids.
SHIELDSCover the entire face, protect against flying particles and light.

standard

ICM’s protection eye wear and visors are, as a rule, approved according to EN 166, however they can be approved according to other relevant standards as well.  Eye protection which is approved according to EN 166 can be marked with one or more symbols that indicate properties and scope.

MATERIALS & LIGHT

MATERIALS
Eye protection can be made of different materials with very different properties.
AcetatePlastic material, particularly suitable for work with chemicals and solvents.
Polycarbonate (PC)Strong, ductile material with the highest mechanical impact strength. However, easy to scratch and therefore often supplied with a hardened surface. Protects against UV rays.
Laminated glasTwo thin plastic sheets glued together with a plastic film. Poor ​mechanical strength, but highly scratch-resistant.

What is blue light?

Blue light occurs naturally in sunlight, but are also transmitted by LED lamps, which are found everywhere in our everyday life. In addition, the huge amount of electronic devices that we use every day. For example, we check our cell phones over 150 times a day, which transmits intense radiation.
