Atlas safety provides Eye Protection solutions for many applications. We have solutions for blocking debris and dust, chemical splash protection, and other hazards like ultraviolet, infrared, laser, and even blue light protection. Therefore, we can offer a wide variety of laser safety glasses, safety goggles, and face shields.
The majority of eye and face injuries result from flying or falling objects, or sparks striking the eye. Most of these objects are the size of a pinhead, but can still cause serious injury.
When working in hazardous areas where there is exposure to flying objects, fragments, and particles, primary protective devices such as safety glasses with side shields or safety goggles must be worn. Also used as a secondary protective device, face shields are an additional requirement in situations with severe exposure.

Safety glasses are intended to shield the eyes from impact hazards such as flying fragments, objects, large chips, and particles. Whenever there are hazards from flying objects like these, workers must wear safety glasses. Therefore, non-side shield glasses are not acceptable. The frames of safety glasses are either metal or plastic and can be fitted with corrective or impact-resistant lenses.
Safety goggles protect eyes from impact hazards such as flying fragments, objects, large chips, and particles – just like safety glasses.The difference is safety goggles fit the face and form a protective seal around the eyes. This prevents objects from entering under or around the goggles. Safety goggles may incorporate prescription lenses.
Face shields protect the entire face from impact hazards such as flying fragments, objects, large chips, and particles. Alone, face shields do not protect from impact hazards. You must use face shields in combination with safety glasses or safety goggles. A face shield is made with a transparent material in varied levels of thickness. Thickness level corresponds to the task and severity of a potential impact. There is a variety of headgear and face shield window designs and possible combinations depending on need.
