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…)
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.
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.
