New Uvex Genesis X2TM Safety Eyewear Adds Unique Style to the Best-selling Genesis® Family of Industrial Eye Protection
Light and Sporty Adjustable Model Offers Maximum Appeal
SMITHFIELD, R.I. — Oct. 15, 2007 — Sperian Eye and Face Protection, world leader in safety eyewear, today announced the newest addition to its Genesis® Family of safety eyewear, the Genesis X2TM. The slimmest and sportiest model within the Genesis line, the Genesis X2 combines hardcore impact protection with sleek styling to offer wearers the protection they need and the comfort and style they demand.
Featuring unique MMT — Multi-Material Technology® and adjustable temples, the Genesis X2 provides exceptional comfort and a customizable fit that few eyewear products can deliver. The Genesis X2 was designed with the wearer in mind. Because style and comfort are both important factors influencing employee compliance, a lightweight and uniquely styled lens provides military-level impact protection and sports-inspired styling for overage that is ideal for a wide array of industries and applications.
The Genesis X2 eyewear complies with the ANSI Z87+ standard and passes Military Velocity Sub Zero (MIL V0) ballistic testing for impact, which requires protection against impact energies seven times higher than ANSI. All Uvex lenses offer 99.9 percent ultraviolet protection and are available in
a variety of high-performance lens tints and coatings.
Photos of the Genesis X2 are available to the media upon request. For complete product details and ordering information please visit www.uvex.us or call Sperian Customer Care directly at 1-800-682-0839.
