LENS Filter Types

Different glassworking processes emit varying levels of UV, IR, and visible light. Ensure that the glasses you choose have the appropriate filters to block out harmful wavelengths specific to your glassworking activities.

uv and ir protection

Evaluate the level of protection offered by the glasses. Look for glasses that comply with industry standards and provide adequate protection against UV, IR, and visible light to safeguard your eyes from potential hazards.

Comfort and Fit

Comfort is essential for prolonged use. Opt for glasses that are lightweight, ergonomic, and provide a secure fit to prevent slipping or discomfort during extended glassworking sessions.


While protection is paramount, ensure that the glasses offer clear visibility without distorting colors or obstructing your vision. This is crucial for maintaining precision and accuracy in glassworking tasks.


Safety Certification

Look for glasses that meet relevant safety standards such as ANSI Z87.1 for eye protection in industrial settings. This ensures that the glasses have undergone rigorous testing and meet the required safety criteria.
