No compromise for safety

Source: RTM Oct/Nov 2019

 

Life is normally full of compromises, but hopefully not anymore with a new range of high-tech lens developments from Bollé Safety for the Rail Industry. For any conditions, in any working environment, Bollé Safety has the lens for you, says general manager Ian Walbeoff.

Platinum

Bollé Safety has revolutionised eye protection with an innovation that exceeds the requirements of all international standards. The new, exclusive double-sided anti-fog and anti-scratch platinum coating guarantees greater safety, reliability and comfort. The permanent coating on both sides of the lens gives them a high resistance to scratching and the most aggressive chemicals, and also prevents fogging.

We also offer an anti-scratch and anti-fog coating on prescription lenses as standard at no extra charge. With a range of over 20 styles to choose from and platinum polycarbonate double-sided anti-scratch and anti-fog lenses, this is the perfect solution for prescription wearers. Also unique to Bollé Safety is the Contour; the world’s first base eight prescription wrap around safety eye shield with Free Form Digital HD safety lens technology. We offer the newest pioneering lens technology, Free Form, which uses one single-point diamond to customise both lenses to each individual prescription and provide superior levels of protection.

CSP (Comfort Sensory Perception)

A revolutionary new lens coating that provides maximum protection against UVA and UVB rays and blue light. This innovative coating is an effective solution for all activities that alternate exposure to bright light and low light, while also being suitable for extreme hot and cold temperature environments. CSP is also combined with the exclusive platinum double-sided K and N anti-scratch and anti-fog coating that sustainably combats fogging.

Twilight

The new Twilight technology offers the advantages of ESP but with a double anti-fog coating (on both sides of the lenses) to prevent fogging in the most challenging conditions and also anti-scratch. Designed and used in low light conditions, it improves contrast. Its light transmission rate is perfect for indoors or outdoors, particularly early morning and late evening.

Polarised

A polarizing filter contains perfectly aligned crystals, which block horizontally polarized light. Acting like a vertical blind, it makes it possible to eliminate the cause of dazzle and only lets past the light known as useful. Polarized lenses offer an incomparable comfort from all reflective surfaces. The lens provides total improvement of visual comfort by eliminating glare, reducing eyestrain/visual fatigue and improving both colour and contrast perception. Ideal for driving and all outdoor activities.

ESP (Extra Sensory Perception)

A revolutionary new lens coating that provides maximum protection against UVA and UVB rays, filters out over 70% of blue light but still transmits over 60% of visible light. Applied to Bollé’s high-impact but scratch-resistant optically correct material based on polycarbonate with a quartz crystal coating on the front of the lens. This new lens should be provided to all outside workers to improve their level of protection and comfort outdoors. 

Contrast

A graduated coating that offers the wearer optimal protection through improved accuracy, greater comfort and also reduces visual fatigue. Applied to Bollé’s high impact but scratch resistant, optically correct material based on polycarbonate with a quartz crystal coating on the front of the lens.

HD Hydrophobic

A unique lens that combines two coatings, a Hi-Definition multi anti-reflective and water resistant Hydrophobic. Hi-Definition increases the amount of visible light passing through the lens and therefore improves definition while the hydrophobic coatings repels water and liquids improving clarity and vision. The perfect lens for anyone working in dimly lit areas or working outside in inclement weather.

All Bollé Safety lenses are independently tested and approved to the highest EN standards and as with all of the range of products from Bollé Safety they also offer our rail industry customers excellent value for money and world-renowned optical lens quality and coatings.
