Bollé Safety launched a new collection of use-specific industrial goggles last month and today has announced a compatible ANSI rated face guard to offer users even more protection.
This new goggle collection, called Universal Goggle adapts to a wide range of industrial uses. Each offering has a specific color strap making it more suited towards a specific use, offering variations in ventilation, lens color and material. With the new easy off adjustable face guard, workers now have access to a goggle system aimed at protecting their entire face.
The Universal Goggle is available in four different use variants, all designed to prevent external hazards, such as impacts, gases and liquids, radiation, and more, from entering a worker’s eyes by offering a customized fit, reducing the gap between the frame and the skin for optimal protection.
“The new face guard complements the range and can be fitted to any of the Universal Goggle variants,” said Vincent Azibert, Bollé Safety Product Director. “It’s ideal for workers using processes that generate flying debris and projections that could potentially be harmful to the face in addition to the eyes, but still need a tight eye protection, which traditional face shields cannot provide. They typically would not use the face piece permanently but would fit it to their goggle before performing a task requiring full face protection.”
Yellow – Offers indirect ventilation and is suitable for a majority of users including construction sites where impact is the primary hazard.
Green – Unlike the yellow goggle, this version is completely waterproof and suitable for professionals working with inflammable products, dangerous gases, and fine particles. Ideal uses may range from the petrochemical industry to the food industry.
Cool Grey – This version is made with a neoprene strap, which is more chemical resistant than nylon. It is ideal for workers who are around solvents and acids.
Grey – This option is designed with welding lenses and is suitable for welders handling class 2 to 5 gasses.
In addition to the unique color-coding system, the Universal Goggle offers a wide range of additional proprietary features including a new form fitting innovation from Bollé Safety called The Wave technology. This is a first of its kind with an accordion-style bellows system that allows the goggle to conform to a user’s face and evenly distribute the goggle’s pressure across the face ensuring an optimized fit for each individual.The Universal Goggle is also compatible with a face shield designed to protect the lower part of the face. This face shield clips easily and intuitively onto the Universal Goggle.
● Bi-material frame made with TPR for greater flexibility and comfort, and PC for better impact resistance and optical clarity.
● Level B impact resistance (the highest level of resistance for goggles) according to EN166
● A panoramic vision that helps limit blind spots with a polycarbonate lens.
● Bollé Safety’s PLATINUM coating that protects goggles against scratches and slows down fogging.
● A product that is compatible with prescription glasses: slots on the goggle allow most prescription glasses to fit perfectly under the goggle without creating any pressure points.
“Our priority is to develop goggles that combine safety, comfort and style to enable professionals in the industrial sector to be protected on a daily basis,” said Julien Konieczny, Product Development Manager at Bollé Safety. “Thanks to our Wave technology, companies can protect workers with a goggle that is perfectly adapted to each individual face. In this way, we are promoting the use of goggles in environments where protective glasses are not sufficient.”
In keeping with the brands ESG commitment, the Universal Goggle can be easily dismantled allowing materials ( TPR, PC and Nylon) to be recycled separately and is packaged in a high-density polyethylene bag that is 100 percent recycled and recyclable. This model is also compatible with a face shield that aims to protect the lower part of the face.
