SMITHFIELD, R.I. — July 20, 2010 — Sperian Protection, the world leader in personal protective equipment (PPE), today announced that its flagship eyewear brand, Uvex, has launched the Uvex Stealth® Reader Goggle, the industry’s first safety goggle with reading magnifiers. Available in five diopter strengths ranging from +1.0 to +3.0, the new goggle is ideal for workers who require not only increased magnification for close-up inspection or fine detail work but also the added protection of a goggle.
“The Uvex Stealth family of safety goggles is one of the most popular styles in North America and combines modern design with the best technology and materials,” said David Iannelli, senior product manager for Sperian Eye & Face Protection. “Now workers can enjoy the added benefit of magnifying fine details with the comfort and safety of our top-selling protective goggle to best meet their needs.”
The Uvex Stealth Reader Goggle is available in a clear lens with Uvextreme® anti-fog coating, and its economical lens replacement system extends the life of the goggle. Made in the USA, this goggle meets the ANSI Z87.1-2010 standard for high impact protection as well as the CSA Z94.3 safety standard. Like all Uvex® lenses, the Uvex Stealth Reader Goggle offers 99.9 percent ultra-violet protection.
The Uvex Stealth Reader goggle’s low profile, wrap-around style delivers complete coverage and unobstructed vision on the job. Its wide, adjustable slide headband features pivoting clips for an easy-to-adjust fit for complete comfort, even with hard hats. Its high-quality, soft elastomer body conforms to facial contours for a secure, gap-free fit to provide optimum all-day protection. With multiple models to choose from, the Uvex Stealth family offers workers the protection they need and the selection they want, helping promote a culture of safety in the workplace.
