Oakley ANSI-Rated Safety Glasses
Whether you have dust, wood, concrete, chemicals, or any particles at all flying around during your normal day on the job, you know what an important role safety glasses play in your day to day life. ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, has developed standards for Safety Glasses in the workplace. Many companies require employees to wear ANSI rated eyewear to prevent possible injuries from occurring. The collection of Oakley Safety glasses answer the demands of extreme safety needs, and surpass expectations of safety glasses in general.
Are all Oakley Glasses ANSI Certified?
Although all Oakley authentic lenses meet or exceed Z87.1 standards, not all Oakley frames do. In order for a pair of glasses to pass ANSI certification, the frame and the lenses need to be certified. The majority of Oakley frames are designed for sport purposes and have features that do not make them compliant with ANSI standards.
What Oakley Glasses ARE safety rated?
Oakley saw an opportunity in the industrial realm to perfect and improve safety glasses, and this is why the Oakley ANSI Collection was born. These Oakley Safety glasses are all made of extreme impact resistant material and rendered “ballistic”-a term Oakley uses to ensure a product has been tested and made for real, dangerous situations that require unbeatable protection. They also meet or exceed the optical standards set forth by ANSI.
Oakley Prescription Safety Glasses
At SportRx we can make Oakley safety rated glasses in your prescription! When we make prescription lenses for a safety rated frame they will be stamped as safety rated lenses. However, we cannot make safety rated lenses for a non-safety rated frame.
With a focus on solving common problems many safety glasses put forth such as low clarity, difficult lens interchangeability and minimized field of view. Oakley set out to design the Tombstone safety glasses in order to put all of these problems to rest. Although these Oakley glasses are designed to protect you from all of the industrial madness that may be thrown your way, the Tombstone was especially made with the avid shooter in mind.
