 Sperian Protection Launches Uvex AmbientTM Over-the-Glass Eyewear


Smithfield, RI – March 2, 2009 – Sperian Protection, the world leader in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), announced today
the launch of Uvex Ambient, a new line of over-the-glass (OTG) safety eyewear.

AmbientOTG_Clear The Uvex Ambient offers workers full protection while wearing their own prescription eyewear. Available with a range of comfort features and in two sizes, the Uvex Ambient OTG offers all-day coverage for a variety of workers and a wide range of prescription eyewear styles, helping to improve worker productivity as well as lower cost-of-ownership with Uvex's renowned tints and lens replacement system.

The lightweight Uvex Ambient is a comfortable and stylish alternative to prescription safety glasses, offering superior comfort and fit with soft, flexible nasal fingers that conform to a variety of facial profiles and minimize slippage. It also provides lens inclination adjustment and adjustable and bendable "flex-n-hold" cushioned wire-core temples for complete flexibility with a secure, customized fit. These innovative flexible temples offer the same highly-customizable fit as premier sports eyewear.

Uvex Ambient eyewear offers the highest available impact protection, certified to ANSI Z87.1-2003 (High Impact), CSA Z94.3, and Military V0 ballistic test for impact.

Lenses are available with Dura-stremeTM dual coating technology (dual anti-fog and anti-scratch) which provides long-lasting, durable anti-fog performance, Uvextreme® Anti-Fog, or Ultra-dura® Anti- Scratch coatings in clear, amber, standard gray, and Shade 3.0 and 5.0 welding tints. The eyewear offers easy lens replacement which allows workers to use multiple tints and extends the life of the eyewear.
