Uvex Sharpens Its Focus on Style with New Uvex MercuryTM  Safety Eyewear from Honeywell Safety Products 
Six lens tints and two lens coatings offer exceptional versatility


SMITHFIELD, R.I. — June 25, 2012 — Today, Honeywell Safety Products introduced Uvex Mercury safety eyewear, which delivers sleek new sport-inspired styling with the comfort features and high-performance protection Uvex is known for. Six lens tint options as well as anti-scratch and anti-fog lens coatings offer exceptional multi-purpose versatility. Uvex Mercury eyewear is ideally suited for use in a broad range of industries from construction and manufacturing to laboratories and more.

“The way an individual looks and feels on the job is proven to affect his or her compliance with safety eyewear, and Uvex has sharpened its focus on style to maximize worker acceptance,” said David Iannelli, senior product manager for Honeywell Safety Products. “Uvex Mercury eyewear is designed with the sleek styling workers value plus the superior comfort and protective features they require, and that supports a culture of safety in any industry.”

Uvex Mercury features a sleek, wraparound design which allows for a panoramic field of vision and added side protection. The sturdy frame delivers just enough flex for a snug yet comfortable fit. A flexible nosepiece conforms to various nasal profiles and soft padding along the temples ensure added comfort and a secure, non-slip fit.  

Uvex Mercury is available in six lens tints including Clear, Gray, Amber, SCT-Reflect 50, Silver Mirror and Blue Mirror to protect workers’ eyes in almost any indoor or outdoor workplace. The style also features anti-scratch hardcoat for prolonged lens life and durability or Uvextra® anti-fog lens coating to ensure long-term optical clarity in hot and humid environments. Like all Uvex® lenses, Uvex Mercury offers 99.9 percent ultraviolet protection. The style meets the ANSI Z87.1-2010 standard and is also certified to the requirements of the CSA Z94.3 standard. 

Uvex Mercury eyewear is available now through major safety equipment distributors in the U.S. and Canada or by contacting the Honeywell Safety Products customer care department directly at 800-430-5490. More information about the complete family of Uvex safety eyewear is available at www.uvex.us.
