378 Features EDGE EYEWEAR TPR Technology Thermoplastic rubber (TPR) is a soft and pliable compound that increases its “grip” as it becomes warm or moist from perspiration. This technology is used in temple tips and nose pads to prevent slipping and keep glasses on the face. UVA/UVB/UVC rays - Fog resistant lenses improve visibility - Triple dipped anti-scratch coating - Polycarbonate lenses comply with: - CSA Z94. 3-07 - ANSI Z87.1+2010 - Military MCEPS GL-PD 10-12 TEST VIDEOS Visit www.edgeeyewear.com/site_canada/media.php to view videos showing the strength of EDGE safety glasses. Standards Lens Technology Tapered lenses eliminate refraction - Lenses filter 99.9% of Frame Technology What is CSA Z94.3-07? All Canadian eye safety standards are created by CSA. CCOHS enforces these standards and functions as the primary national agency in Canada for the advancement of safe and healthy workplaces and preventing work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths. Additional work in this area is carried out by provincial and territorial labour departments and workers’ compensation boards. What is military mceps gl-pd 10-12? (Ballistic standard) The current Military Combat Eye Protection Systems (MCEPS) standard is called MCEPS GL-PD 10-12 which superseded the MIL-PRF-31013 standard in April of 1996. This standard contains ballistic fragmentation tests that determine eyewear compliance. The Military MCEPS standard contains a series of tests that are much more intense than CSA or ANSI, to simulate projectiles and dangers faced in combat. Luminous Transmission Test A test that measures the fraction (percentage) of light passing through a medium (polycarbonate lens.) Requirements: Clear Lens: Must have a minimum of 85% VLT (Section 5.1.2) Tinted Lens: Must have a minimum of 8% and a maximum of 85% VLT (Section 7.1.2 - Table 10) (CSA Handbook: Section 6.4.6) - Frames are made with a flexible and durable TR90 Nylon compound material - Wrap-around frame has no side shield distortion - Straight temple arms rest comfortably on the head and don’t pinch optional features Vapor Shield© Anti-Fog Foam Gasket Lining Most situations can be handled with a standard Anti-Fog lens, but for extreme environments, Edge Eyewear developed a revolutionary, military grade anti-fog coating called “Vapor Shield©.” It is absolutely impervious to fog. A foam gasket is essential to safety in environments with high levels of airborne debris, dust, or wind. By creating a “seal”, this technology keeps foreign particles out of the glasses and away from the eyes. XL (wide) Fit Head size varies from person to person, and certain glasses can present a problem for larger heads; some people find standard-sized glasses to be too small on the face or tight in the temples. The solution is a wider frame that not only feels comfortable, but also looks natural (XL frames are +/- 18% wider).
