The Samprey's glasses are intended for protection against various risks existing in the working post (in the industry, in laboratories, in healthcare, during do-it-yourself, etc.), which may damage eyes or lead to irreversible changes, and even to a complete loss of sight.
The Samprey's safety glasses combine excellent protective properties with a sport design.
They are manufacture in compliance with the EN 166:2001 European Standard and with appropriate provisions of the directive 89/686/EC.
The most frequent and the most dangerous mechanical factor existing in the workplaces are the splinters of the solid objects arising, among others, during manual and automatic processing of wood, metals, stone, concrete and synthetic materials. Sources of splinters may also be damaged movable elements of machines such as: grinding disks, disks of angle cutters, drills, etc.
Harmful and dangerous chemical substances may exist in the air in many forms simultaneously e. g.: gases, powders, drops and sprays of fluids. Chemical agents and industrial fluids, depending on their level of toxicity and concentration, may be irritating to mucosal membrane of eyes and face and may lead in severe cases to chemical burn of the eyeball and skin.
Biological risks exist mainly in the following work environments: healthcare, microbiological and analytical laboratories, biotechnological industry, agriculture, agricultural and food industry, forestry and wood industry. The term biological factors defines microorganisms and macroorganisms as well as such structures and substances produced by these organism, which harmfully affect the human organism and may cause diseases.
Sources of the optical radiation, such as e. g.: xenon lamps, fluorescent lamp, high-power halogen bulbs, forge, flame of a gas burner, an open electric arc used in welding, etc. may lead to many severe risks. To protect eyes and face against an action of a harmful optical radiation: ultraviolet, intense visible (causing dazzle), infrared, laser or produced when welding, protection with installed optical filters.
Electric installations may be the source of risk to life and health. The consequences of these risks may be: electric shock, skin burns and eye dazzles caused by the arc arising at short circuit.
At "hot” working posts, fitted with sources of an intense thermal radiation, risks to life and health from the optical radiation and frequently also mechanical risks caused by e.g.: splinters of smelted metals and sinter, sparks and direct contact with flame exist.
