Luminary Safety Eyewear

March 13, 2014

At just four-fifths of an ounce, Gateway Safety’s Luminary safety eyewear is ultra-lightweight—but it more than carries its weight in both comfort and protection. Luminary’s superior comfort features were engineered to target the “pinch point” areas behind the ears and at the bridge of the nose. As part of the Temple Technology™ Safety Eyewear line, a collection of Gateway Safety products designed to fit users more comfortably, Luminary takes comfort to a new level for workers who wear protective eyewear all day, every day. 

“By far, the most common complaint we hear about safety eyewear is the discomfort behind the ears after a long day’s work,” says Matthew Love, Gateway Safety vice president. “Gateway Safety’s Temple Technology solutions are an answer to this need for more comfortable eyewear that alleviates pressure caused by heavy or tight temples.” Luminary offers unique qualities that eliminate pinching but promise a secure fit—regardless of the wearer’s head size. Its ultra-flexible temples self-adjust to accommodate wide or narrow faces, relieving pressure behind the ears. A rubberized coating on the temples prevents slipping, helping to ensure a snug fit. 

A “fingertip” nosepiece reduces slippage, so Luminary not only fits like a glove, but also stays securely in place. And, not to leave style out of the equation, translucent temple insets match the color of the lens, giving Luminary a cutting-edge appearance. Add to the comfort and style its ultra-light weight, and Luminary will make workers forget that they’re wearing protective eyewear. But make no mistake: Luminary is, first and foremost, durable eye protection. It is independently certified by Underwriters Laboratories to meet ANSI Z87.1+ and CSA Z94.3 standards. The Temple Technology eyewear line also includes Flight safety eyewear, a revolutionary design with unique, patented temple “wings” to cushion the head and relieve pressure.
