At Strategic Defence, Safety Matters Most!
What’s the Difference Between Safety Glasses and Tactical Eyewear?
The risks to eyesight vary in each environment. Sitting on the couch at home? No worries (although you may want some blue light-blocking glasses for your nightly scrolling). At the shooting range? You’ll definitely want some ballistic-rated eye pro. Safety glasses and tactical eyewear differ in their respective impact resistance. Safety glasses are tested to ensure they can protect your eyesight against hazards found on jobsites, warehouses, factories or other industrial environments. Tactical eyewear, on the other hand, is put to the test to promise impact protection against the most extreme projectile velocities. The Military Combat Eye Protection System (MCEPS) standard tests glasses with a 22-caliber projectile traveling at 660 feet per second, whereas the American National Standards Association’s (ANSI Z87.1 and Z87.1+) requirements are at much lower velocities. In short, if you’re on a jobsite, wear safety glasses; if you’re on the range or on patrol, wear tactical eyewear (although you could always wear MCEPS eyewear on a jobsite for extra protection).
Luckily, you only need impact-resistant glasses once to save your eyesight. Unluckily, you won’t know when that time will come. Your eyes are your only unprotected organs. Protect them every day with our tried and tested impact-resistant technology. We always third-party test our frames and lenses to ensure ANSI, CSA or MCEPS standards impact-resistant compliance. Whether you’re on the job, at the range, working through chores at home or slinging flies on the weekend, protect your vision with Edge’s shatter-proof and UV-blocking lenses.
Long Lasting Anti-Fog
Most anti-fogs on the market are a coating applied to the surface of the lens. These topical solutions are prone to premature wear and sub-par performance in environments most likely to cause fogging lenses. Our anti-fog is infused into the lenses during the manufacturing process. And while no anti-fog coating is truly permanent, ours offers a longer-lasting and higher-performing solution to inhibit the buildup of fog-causing water vapor on lenses than any other on the market.
