Lens Color Guide

Clear  –  Specifically designed for indoor protection where impact protection is required.

Gray  –  Ideal for outdoor protection where light and glare can cause eye strain and fatigue. Gray lenses do not affect color recognition.

Indoor/Outdoor  –  A clear lens with a slight mirror coating serves the same purpose as a gray lens, yet allows more visible light to pass through the lens making this lens ideal for indoor and outdoor use. This lens also reduces glare from artificial light.

Gold, Blue and Silver Mirror  –  The “mirror” coating reflects and reduces the amount of light that passes through making these lenses ideal for outdoor where sunlight and glare cause eye strain and fatigue.

Yellow – Ideal for creating maximum contrast, even in low light they block the blue portion of the visible light spectrum.

Orange – Offers high contrast and low light image resolution.  Filters out blue and green light to reduce eye fatigue, improves visual acuity during curing and inspection processes.

Light Blue –Serves the same purpose as grey lens, yet allows more visible light through the lens for indoor/outdoor use. Reduces glare from artificial light such as halogen and fluorescent.

Shade 5  –  Ideal for protection against ultraviolet and infrared radiation; designed specifically for working with molten metal and welding operations.

Purple Haze – Commonly used in medium to low light conditions. Enhances contrast.

Ice Blue – Absorb reflections across mirror surface, diminish glare. Ideal in bright conditions.

Iridium – Ideal for outdoor applications where sunlight and glare cause eye strain and fatigue. “Mirror” coating reflects light, reducing the amount of light that passes through the lens.

Features
OSHA’s Eye and Face Protection

General personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements are addressed in Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.132 – Occupational Safety and Health Standards.

“Protective equipment including personal protective equipment for eyes, face, head and extremities, protective clothing, respiratory devices, and protective shields and barriers shall be provided, used and maintained in a sanitary and reliable condition wherever it is necessary by reason of hazards of processes or environment, chemical hazards, radiological hazards or mechanical irritants encountered in a manner capable of causing injury or impairment in the function of any part of the body through absorption, inhalation or physical contact.” (29 CFR 1910.132(a))

Eye and face protection requirements are outlined in 29 CFR 1910.133:

  • Employers must ensure that each affected employee uses appropriate eye or face protection when exposed to eye or face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids or caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors, or potentially injurious light radiation.
  • Employers must ensure that each affected employee uses eye protection that provides side protection when there is a hazard from flying objects. Detachable side protectors (e.g. clip-on or slide-on sideshields) meeting the pertinent requirements of this section are acceptable.
  • Employers must ensure that each affected employee who wears prescription lenses while engaged in operations that involve eye hazards wears eye protection that incorporates the prescription in its design, or wears eye protection that can be worn over the prescription lenses without disturbing the proper position of the prescription lenses or the protective lenses.
  • Employers must ensure that each affected employee uses equipment with filter lenses that have a shade number appropriate for the work being performed for protection from injurious light radiation. (CFR) 132, as determined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), lists general PPE requirements.
