Honeywell unveiled today Uvex Hypershock™ safety eyewear, which combines premium sport-inspired style and best-in-class lens performance for maximum appeal and protection. Available in Matte Black, Smoke Brown or Clear Ice, the eyewear’s wraparound frame delivers superior coverage, while 10 lens tints offer versatility for both indoor and outdoor applications. High-performance Uvextreme Plus® lens coating delivers 10 times longer anti-fog protection and two times better scratch resistance than other anti-fog coated lenses.* The eyewear is ideally suited for rugged work environments ranging from manufacturing, construction and landscaping to utilities and oil and gas.“Workers are more likely to wear protective eyewear when it looks good and is comfortable, so we designed Uvex Hypershock with progressive sport styling to support worker acceptance and promote all-day wear,” said David Iannelli, senior eyewear product manager for Honeywell Safety Products. “With so many frame and lens tint options plus our most advanced lens coating technology, Uvex Hypershock delivers the good looks workers want and the high performance protection safety managers demand. The only challenge will be keeping workers from wearing them when they aren’t on the jobsite.”
The eyewear’s lightweight, wrap-around frame design is engineered to fit a wide range of workers while providing increased coverage, side protection and superior peripheral vision. Streamlined padded temples and a molded nosepiece deliver a secure, comfortable fit.
