Edge Eyewear Vapor Shield – When Anti-Fog Is Just Not Good Enough

edge eyewear vapor shield

Edge Eyewear is a company after my own heart. Not only do they make safety glasses that have the potential to not make me look like a total doofus (not an easy task), but they are also not shy about putting together a video clip that shows exactly how hardcore their safety glasses are. You may have already seen out post where they shoot their glasses with guns. Edge Eyewear now has military-grade anti-fog technology on some of their glasses. While the video about the vapor shield glasses may not be as outwardly awesome, the technology behind the glasses and the conditions they withstand are still pretty neat. Remember, the vapor shield glasses shown are the same hyper-mega-durable glasses shown in previous Edge Eyewear videos. (more…)

Edge Eyewear – Shotgun to the Face Videos

Typically you are going to want to avoid .22 calibers & 12 gauge shotguns to the face. It is never a good idea, no matter what kind of eye protection you are wearing. For instance, the typical .22 bullet travels at a rate of 1164 ft/sec, with a weight of 1.7 grams that produces a force of 87 ft/lbs. This does a great job demonstrating the protective properties of Edge Eyewear because none of the dangers on the jobsite, including flying debris from a saw, falling objects, or even misfired nail guns, are traveling at near these speeds. It is this kind of technology that goes into all the Edge Eyewear Safety Glasses. The fact that they look great is just a very nice benefit. Check out these short videos below.

Combo Glasses – 2 in 1 Eyes + Hearing Safety Solution

By now you may have figured out we are suckers for the “Guy with an Idea” type tool products and here is another good example. The company is www.ComboGlasses.com and they make Safety glasses with built in ear protection. Very simple idea but the design and execution are very good. When not need the ear plugs tuck into the glasses out of the way very easily. The glasses also have two adjustments which allow you to easily find the right fit when using the ear protection. Of course the glasses meet and/or exceed all ANSI standards for safety eye protection.

Safety Glasses To Wear On The Job & All Weekend

It is a proven fact if you make safety equipment more attractive people will be more likely to wear it. If everyone is wearing their safety equipment all the time, you will see fewer injuries, saving time and money in the long run. Safety Glasses manufacturer Edge Eye Wear took this idea and ran with it. The Edge Safety Glasses look as good as many of the most popular sunglasses but protect the eyes from jobsite hazards as well as the sun’s rays. Edge was the first to offer safety glasses with features like polarized lens, anti-fog lens, blue light filter, aqua precision, high-definition lens and G-15 lens as options on their eyewear. They have also done extensive laboratory testing to ensure their eyewear meet and/or exceed all safety standards.

Each of the frame styles is also available in a wide range of lenses from clear to Welders IR 5.0, each with a specific task in mind. There are 15+ styles of frames to choose from so it should be fairly easy to match the right lenses with a frame you will want to wear on the job and after. Popular models include: Brazeau, Reclus, Khor, Baretti, Kazbek, Dakura, Delano & Kirova.

Lens Technology:
Clear Anti-Reflective – Designed to keep glare down. Allows 99% light pass through.
Yellow – Enhance available light in low light conditions or after dusk. Allows 80% light pass through.   
Polarized Yellow – Enhance available light in low light conditions or after dusk with added advantage of polarized lenses to eliminate glare and reflections. Allows 36% light pass through.
Amber – High contrast lens for overcast days. This lens also has blue filter properties. Excellent for activities where the light is flat of contrast is minimal, such as skiing. Allows 57% light pass through.
Copper – Filters out blue light of haze which can cause eye fatigue, tired, strained or sore eyes. Specifically engineered as a high contrast driving lens to give greater depth perception. Allows 8% light pass through.
Polarized Copper – Filters out blue light of haze which can cause eye fatigue, tired, strained or sore eyes. Specifically engineered as a high contrast driving lens to give greater depth perception with the added advantage of polarized lenses to eliminate glare and reflections. Allows 12% light pass through.  
Smoke – The perfect all around tint for standard shading in normal light conditions. Allows 16% light pass through.  
Polarized Smoke – The perfect all around tint for standard shading in normal light conditions with the added advantage of polarized lenses to eliminate glare and reflections. Allows 16% light pass through.  
Silver Mirror – Similar to smoke lens properties, but has the added Silver Mirror lens coating which reflects more light, making it ideal for bright light conditions. Allows 13% light pass through.  
Polarized G-15 Silver Mirror – The G-15 technology was designed by the US Air Force to maximize transmission of light at 555nm. Provides contrast and image definition while offering cooling sensation to the eyes. Allows 9% light pass through.  
Blue Mirror – Similar to Silver Mirror lens but more reflective power. Allows 12% light pass through.  
Polarized Aqua Precision Blue – The Aqua Precision lens technology was designed by NASA as a reflective coating for satellite portholes. The Aqua-based color of this lens maximizes clarity and contrast. Allows 9% light pass through.  
Rose Mirror – Reflects light in bright light situations. The Rose color base offers a warm color for the eyes and is coated with a Silver Mirror for additional light reflection. Details are enhanced in flat light. Allows 11% light pass through.  
Aqua Precision Red – The Aqua Precision lens technology was designed by NASA as a reflective coating for satellite portholes. The Aqua-based color of this lens maximizes clarity and contrast. Allows 13% light pass through.  
Welding IR 3.0 – Filters out low levels of intense Infra Red light, such as gas welding, brazing or torch cutting. Allows 12% light pass through.  
Welding IR 5.0 – Filters out medium levels of intense Infra Red light, such as gas welding, brazing or torch cutting. Allows 2% light pass through.  

 All the colored lenses provide 99.9% protection from UVA/UVB/UVC rays. For those with larger heads, like me, check out the oversized Kazbek XL models which have a 152mm front with 120mm at the temples. I’ve been wearing mine around for a few weeks now just as sunglasses when biking and they have been really awesome with better lenses than my old pair of more expensive glasses. Priced from $5.95 to $24.95 it’s not hard to imagine getting a few pairs with different styles and lenses. Contact Ohio Power Tool if you have any questions about the Edge Safety Eyewear.
