We always test our safety glasses for ANSI compliance with a third-party lab to ensure your eyes are protected when it matters most.
We use a durable nylon composite in all of our frames. This material makes for virtually indestructible sunglasses and safety glasses.
We were the first to offer polarized lenses in safety eyewear. This lens technology improves clarity better than standard tinted lenses.

Why Wear Safety Glasses?
Whether you’re at work or at home, hazards toyour eyesight are ever present. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that 50% of eye injuries at home or during recreational activities. When a piece of debris comes flying off your garage project, or a drop of oil or paint falls toward your face, or a tool slips off a fastener and comes for your eye, you want to know your eyesight is safe behind a pair of ANSI Z87.1-rated glasses. The problem is, you never know exactly when you’ll need to wear impact-resistant glasses.
What Does ANSI Z87.1 Mean?
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a US organization that writes requirements of equipment used in a wide array of industries. These requirements, among other things, ensure the safety of the tested equipment, and are enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA). The Z87.1 section of ANSI standards outlines the requirements of personal eye and face protection.
What are Safety Glass Lenses Made Of?
In order to meet ANSI’s Z87.1 or Z87.1+ requirements, safety glasses need to be able to take impacts that replicate those that may be experienced by projectiles on a jobsite or while doing projects at home. Polycarbonate is lightweight, resists impacts and naturally defends against UV radiation. In short, polycarbonate is a perfect material for safety glass lenses.
