New Uvex Strategy™ Goggle Delivers Maximum ver-the-Glass Protection with Industry-Leading Value
Face-Hugging Material and Rugged Design Withstand the Harshest Environments
SMITHFIELD, R.I. – September 18, 2006 – Uvex,® the leader n safety eyewear, today announced the launch of its new vex Strategy™ Goggle. The over-the-glass (OTG) goggle fits over most prescription eyewear and provides a high quality, cost-effective option that protects even in the
harshest environments. The Uvex Strategy Goggle meets both ANSI and CSA standards.
The Uvex Strategy Goggle’s lightweight body is comprised of soft, flexible thermopoly elastomer (TPE) that conforms
comfortably to the face, unlike other products which use rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Four models are available to suit a variety of
working conditions including direct vent, closed vent, indirect vent and indirect vent with foam-lined vents for fine particle protection. Each model offers a snug seal and superior protection against impact, chemical splash, dust, sand and debris. In addition, the goggle features a polycarbonate
lens for excellent peripheral vision and added security. Lenses are also available with Uvextra™ anti-fog coating to minimize fogging in hot, humid environments.
“In the past, workers seeking a more affordable goggle had to sacrifice comfort with PVC alternatives that are now on the market,” said Erica Osley, group product manager, American brands. “We wanted workers to have the peace of mind that they are protected by a goggle that is comfortable enough to wear all day and provides uncompromised value – the Uvex Strategy Goggle accomplishes both objectives.”
Uvex Strategy Goggles comply with the ANSI Z87+ and CSA Z94.3 standards.
