Over Glasses Safety Glasses - Use With Prescription Eyewear
If you are one of the many people in the UK who have to wear prescription glasses, then a set of safety over glasses may be just the thing you need to keep your eyes safe whilst working in environments requiring eye protection.
These overglasses share many of the same properties as standard safety glasses but are larger and shaped to allow you to wear them over the top of your prescription eyewear. If you do not wear prescription glasses, you can still wear over glasses, so they can be a great way to kit out a whole workforce with a “one pair fits all” solution.
Our overspecs are all EN166 compliant and made to a high standard, with a class 1 optical clarity rating. This high standard of optical clarity means that the overspecs can be worn for a full working day and beyond without causing eye strain.
Lens Coating Options & Tints
Two key protective coatings are available with some of our PPE over glasses.
Indicated by markings on the lens starting with 2-, 2C- or 5-. If present, all of these markings indicate that the lens has UV protection, shielding your eyes from ultraviolet light.
K Anti Scratch
Lenses with a K marking indicate the glasses have an anti-scratch coating; this will help prevent micro-scratches from forming on the lens. Lenses that don't have this protection can be scratched by something as simple as cleaning them with the wrong cloth.
N Fogging Resistance
An N lens marking for anti-mist means if you are working in an area of high humidity or going from a hot environment to a cold environment, this anti-fogging coating can help ensure that your glasses do not steam up as readily as glasses without the coating.
We offer a few styles in a smoked finish; this acts like sunglasses helping reduce eye strain in bright outdoor environments.
When Should you Wear Safety Over Specs
You should wear safety over glasses when you require eye protection, and also have to wear standard prescription eyewear. Some instances where you would want to consider wearing these over glasses include:
- When using hand tools or needing to protect your eyes from low-impact debris.
Over spectacles are not suitable if you are doing any of the following:
- Working with fine dusts
- Working with chemicals that have a splash risk
- Working with irritating gasses
- Working with power tools
- Are at risk of arc flash
For some of the above applications, you should consider either safety goggles or a face shield.
