For visitors observing a factory or similar work environment, we carry visitors™ safety glasses. The glasses are wraparound safety glasses for factory and warehouse visits. The frames also have vented side shields and peripheral vision. Women and children, whether in an educational or working environment, also have custom safety glasses in our store. Our child safety glasses are designs Pyramex Mini-Ztek and MSA Small Faces, which are similar to larger designs but for someone with a smaller head. In a work environment with chemicals, whether in a professional or educational laboratory, chemical safety glasses and goggles are recommended. Chemical safety glasses are made from highly durable frames and are designed with side shields to protect eyes from minor chemical splashes. Safety goggles have a similar purpose and design but are specifically used for lab work. Safety goggles have adjustable headbands and often have lenses coated with Duramass scratch-resistant coating. For extreme instances, some safety goggles are treated to prevent fogging lenses and are made from material to self-seal small scratches.
Protection for the entire face can come from a detachable face shield, such as the Jackson "The Shield," or a full face plastic shield, such as an Uvex bionic face shield. Detachable face shields, held in place by a visor and brackets, are only a secondary form of protection. Primary protection should come from a pair of safety goggles or glasses.
