RS Components is launching a brand new SecureFit protective eyewear series from industry leader 3M. Combining the best features from the existing 200 and 400 series with additional functional and ergonomic benefits, the new SecureFit 600 series is designed for comfort, fit and clarity.
The stylish new models exhibit 3M's SecureFit Pressure Diffusion Temple (PDT) technology, so the eyewear stays on securely all day without discomfort. Designed using a cross-section of facial types and structures, the PDT technology regulates the amount of force on individual head sizes to ensure the optimum pressure for a secure and comfortable fit for a very broad range of different users. This means that the one size will comfortably fit a wider range of head sizes, giving workers better compliance. The flat and flexible design has also been designed for combining with 3M protective earmuffs (with minimal loss of attenuation) and disposable and reusable respirators.
The 11-model range includes a host of options, including: various polycarbonate lens colours (clear, grey and amber); anti-scratch coatings that are five times more scratch resistant than standard 3M hard coats, for better visibility and extended life; and 3M Scotchgard anti-fog coatings.
Other options include: Welding (IR) lenses, comprising three lens types for welding, gas welding, and torch work and cutting; polarised lenses, to protect against UV (lenses absorb 99.9 per cent of UVA and UVB rays and meet the requirements of EN 166:2001), horizontal reflective glare and sunlight; and an innovative replaceable foam gasket, to prevent the ingress of foreign objects.
Where marked, the SecureFit 600 range meets and exceeds the requirements of the K (test for abrasion by fine particles) and N (remain unfogged for eight seconds) additional tests in the EN 166:2001 standard for protective eyewear.
RS will also be extending the current range of SecureFit 400 models it stocks, with reader safety glasses.
Eyesight is one of the most important faculties of any person, which is why it rates so highly on insurance scales for personal injury. For the same reason, developers like 3M undertake constant research and development to deliver the best possible protection coupled to comfort and style. This eyewear and many other safety products can be found in the RS Personal Protective Equipment portal.
