11 Mar SURVEILLANCE OPTICS Test results
Our SURVEILLANCE glasses were the result of working with a company for 9 months who have pioneered primary production in the optical business, for over 50 years. We are delighted to partner with their expertise in manufacturing; breathing life into and evolving our design. The result is magic. Post design and sampling, our eye wear had been granted internal UV400 rating and passed the production, impact crash test. So they were safe, high performing and functional, but we wanted independent scrutiny and sent them to be examined by Optical Appliance Testing Service (OATS) and were delighted with the results obtaining strength level 1 in the Impact resistance test (ANSI Z80.3 2010) and awarded a Cat 3 optic.

How UV 400 Protects the Eyes
UV 400 indicates an eye protection item that has been optimized to prevent eye exposure to both UVA and UVB radiation. One of the biggest differences between UV 400 protected items as compared to other items that protect against the sun’s radiation is the fact that UV 400 protected items are capable of blocking light rays as small as 400 nanometers. This means that anywhere from 99 to 100 percent of the sun’s harmful radiation is kept away from the eyes, which can make a big difference in eye protection.
