Uvex Inspires Safety with New Uvex PrecisionPro™ Protective Eyewear

Frameless design and precise optics maximize vision and reduce distortion for detail-oriented work


SMITHFIELD, R.I. — February 10, 2010 — Sperian Protection, the world leader in personal protective equipment (PPE), today announced that its flagship brand, Uvex®, has launched the new Uvex PrecisionPro™ style of safety eyewear. Uvex PrecisionPro’s frameless design and precise optics maximize vision and reduce distortion for jobs where seeing every detail in perfect clarity is critical. The style is ideally suited for applications such as quality control, inspection, lab work, aerospace, fine maintenance, cleanrooms and mechanics. Uvex PrecisionPro’s ultra-lightweight design delivers all-day comfort and helps keep workers safer because they wear their protective eyewear longer.

Uvex PrecisionPro is available with Uvex’s advanced new Supra-Dura™ anti-scratch coating that provides five times more scratch resistance than other coatings on the market or with Uvextreme® anti-fog coating. Its specialized, task-specific SCT Spectrum Control Technology® lens tints optimize lighting and enhance visual perception. The style also features FlexFit™ bendable temples and nosepieces for the most comfortable, customized fit and ratcheting temples that make it easy to adjust the lens angle for a close fit. The eyewear meets the ANSI Z87.1- 2003 (high impact) and CSA Z94.3 safety standards and comes with a lifetime frame guarantee.

“We developed Uvex PrecisionPro based on extensive research and surveys of safety managers throughout the Americas, whose foremost hurdle was selecting the proper eyewear for the job among such a broad – even overwhelming – product spectrum,” said David Iannelli, senior product manager for Uvex. “Because Uvex PrecisionPro is designed specifically for fine detail-oriented applications, it has never been easier to choose the best-suited safety eyewear for these jobs.”

Uvex PrecisionPro is one of three new styles introduced in Uvex’s new Specifix™ collection, which also includes Uvex VersaPro™ and Uvex ExtremePro™ protective eyewear. Each style is designed to meet the unique needs of workers in the specific industries they serve. The Specifix collection embodies Uvex’s unparalleled commitment to product innovation and a workplace culture of safety.

More information about the entire Specifix collection and multimedia product demonstrations are available at www.UvexSpecifix.com.
