KG-5 is our top-selling laser safety filter, and for good reason.
KG-5 Means Clear, High-Protection Laser Safety Glasses
If you’re looking for laser safety glasses for Holmium, YAG, or a CO2 laser, KG-5 Laser Safety Glasses are probably right for you. KG-5 laser safety glasses protect from 900-1000nm, 1000-2400nm, and 2900-10600nm, all at optical densities above 5 or 7, depending on the range.
KG-5 laser safety glasses are our most popular because of their extremely high visual light transmission (VLT) and their versatility for use with many common medical and industrial lasers. They come in several popular frame choices, including our Model 808 wraparound frame on the right, and their lenses are made of optical-quality German glass which can be made in prescription upon request.
Interested in laser safety glasses for YAG, Holmium, and/or CO2 lasers? Here’s what’s great about KG-5:
- KG-5 laser safety glasses have extremely high VLT, meaning they are almost completely clear and very comfortable to work in.
- The KG-5 lenses are made of optical-quality German glass, giving you clear and precise vision.
- KG-5 laser safety glasses can be made in prescription if you would rather have prescription laser safety glasses instead of wearing a fitover on top of your regular glasses.
- The KG-5 laser safety glasses come in a variety of popular frames, including our wraparound Model 808, our Fitover 33, and our Model 55 silicone goggle.
- The KG-5 offers great protection: 5+ OD at 900-1000nm, 7+ OD at 1000-2400nm, and 7+ OD at 2900-10600nm.
- KG-5 is our most popular filter in laser safety glasses.
KG-5 is so popular because YAG, Holmium, and CO2 lasers are so common in medical and industrial applications, and the extremely high VLT that KG-5 offers cannot be matched by any other filter that protects from all three of these lasers. It should be noted that YAG Double and YAG Harmonic lasers are not protected from with KG-5.
Good vision is crucial to the safe and efficient operation of a laser. If you are debating between other laser safety glasses with lower VLT and the KG-5, we strongly recommend getting the KG-5. Its superb clarity will ensure a safe and comfortable working environment around your laser.
