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.

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’
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is called MCEPS GL-PD 10-12 which superseded the MIL-PRF-31013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
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).
Aqua Precision Lens
The unique properties of this lens effectively block the transmission of infrared
light while also reducing excess blue and red light on both ends of the light
spectrum. The result is ultimate optical clarity and contrast, especially in the
brightest light conditions.
