Laser safety products include a variety of hardware and software items that protect users from the potentially hazardous effects of laser radiation. They include protective glasses, windows, sheeting, signs, and barrier systems. These products provide reliable protection for professionals in a wide range of industries.
Some of these laser safety products can be customized to meet specific applications. Phillips Safety, for instance, has developed high-quality polycarbonate filters that can be manufactured to fit customers’ needs. The company also offers custom-made combined glass and polycarbonate filters.
When purchasing laser safety glasses, it’s important to know the wavelength of the laser. This helps determine the best fit and the proper protective filter. For example, laser safety glasses that protect from 190nm to 10,600nm are ideally suited for industrial and medical applications.
The great variety of laser filters offered by Phillips Safety can be used for a range of wavelengths. When it comes to their materials, polycarbonate is a lightweight filter with a large wavelength absorption range. Laser glass filters are best suited for mid- to high-power density lasers.
The number of standardized laser pulses that the glasses can withstand is another factor to consider. Additionally, they should also pass CE certification, which is a mark that assures end-users of the quality of the product.
Another consideration is the Optical Density (OD). OD measures the attenuation of light passing through the laser filter. It is calculated by a mathematical expression. Using a formula, OD is measured in W/cm2, where W is the power density of the laser and cm2 is the area of the lens.
While OD is a good indicator of the attenuation of light, it is not a precise measurement. To get an accurate OD value, the notified body, or an independent verifier, should test the glasses for actual laser endurance. If the laser glasses can sustain a direct hit from the specified laser for 5 seconds, they’re considered safe.
Depending on your application, laser safety products may be manufactured for military, aerospace, research and education, cosmetic surgery, or other industries. With the increase in the availability of high-powered lasers, the market is expected to grow. For that, the market can count on Phillips Safety, as the company provides the highest-quality laser safety products available.
Access control is one of the most misunderstood aspects of laser safety standards. However, it is vital to ensure that unapproved individuals are kept away from harmful areas. Typically, a non-defeatable system is used to automatically shut down the laser when a door is opened. Unfortunately, these systems are hard on the heart and can damage laser equipment. For that reason, warning signs indicating the presence of laser radiation are of extreme importance.
Other essential laser safety items include sheeting, barriers, and windows. They are important for reducing risk, as they block the laser’s beam in a safe, effective manner. Here at Phillips Safety you find a variety of products designed specifically for laser safety, as well as radiation, welding, and glassworking protection.

Our goal at Phillips Safety is to provide customers with laser safety glasses that provide the highest protection against all kinds of laser. That being said, our laser safety glasses start at $30.00, with many options to choose from. Added features such as prescription and lens coatings can bring up the price of your safety glasses. However, these features are provided at the best price in the market.
Yes, they do. Our laser safety glasses meet rigorous safety standards, with the majority of the frames being ANSI Z87.1 approved. In addition, we also offer options that meet EN 166 safety standards.
The shipping of laser safety products changes according to its category. Laser safety glasses, for example, usually take between 3 and 5 business days to be shipped. Prescription orders from Phillips Safety take between 7 and 10 business days to be completed and shipped. This is the same for all prescription safety glasses. For more information on the estimated delivery time for our laser safety windows, laser warning signs, laser barriers, or laser safety face shields, please contact us on our chat, e-mail us at email@example.com, or call us at 1-866-575-1307. Phillips Safety is committed to getting your order out quickly and efficiently while doing proper quality control.
Yes, you can. If your laser safety glasses have replacement side shields or replacement nose pads, those will be listed in our “Frame Parts” category, under the “Accessories” menu.
Yes, you can. If your laser safety products have any extra accessories or replacement parts, those will be listed in our “Frame Parts” category, under the “Accessories” menu.
Yes, they do. All safety glasses at Phillips Safety come with a case for their protection.
To choose the right laser safety glasses for you, first you need to know your laser’s wavelength. You also need to determine the needed protection level based on your laser’s output parameters. For that, you can look for the recommended Optical Density (OD). On our laser safety glasses, this information is displayed on the features of each laser filter, as well as on each product’s description. Finally, check for the visible light transmission and choose the frame that best suits you. For prescription options, you can choose a fitover frame or find glasses with either of the following laser filters: KG5, BG38, CD2, BG3, CR39, G15, BG42, and W570.
For green lasers, Argon laser safety glasses have orange polycarbonate lenses that block beams of green light operating at 532nm wavelength. At Phillips Safety, we offer a variety of laser safety glasses with the Argon filter: AA, AA3, AA8, AKP, and DFIU. If you need help choosing your laser filter, please contact us on our chat, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 1-866-575-1307
To test laser safety glasses a spectrophotometer is required and three steps need to be applied. First, the lens needs to be applied to the spectrophotometer, which will test the amount of light being absorbed against the amount of light being let through at different wavelengths. The amount being absorbed is a measurement known as Optical Density (OD). Second, you need to find out what protection level is needed based on the output of your laser, by looking for the recommended OD of the laser. Finally, compare the OD of your lens to that required. If it is sufficient, it is considered safe.
