3M has introduced a revolutionary range of safety eyewear which self-adjusts to individual head sizes, delivering noticeably higher levels of personal comfort and security of fit
Recognising that lack of comfort and fit are the biggest barriers to protective eyewear use, the Personal Safety Division of diversified technology company 3M has introduced a revolutionary range of safety eyewear that self-adjusts to individual head sizes, delivering noticeably higher levels of personal comfort and security of fit.
Following last year’s launch of the SecureFit 200 Series Protective Eyewear by 3M, this year brings the next generation in the range, SecureFit 400 Series Protective Eyewear, which aims to improve compliance by adding features for even more comfort and style.
Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology by 3M allows the frames to naturally adjust to the wearer’s profile, providing a snug, stylish and secure fit across a diverse workforce, without compromising safety.
'Research undertaken by international market research specialist, 2 Europe, on behalf of 3M reveals that more than a third of workers across a wide range of UK industries neglect to wear safety eyewear because it is too uncomfortable,' explains Ron Schilderman, Safety Eyewear Product Manager at 3M. 'This has serious implications, not only for the health and safety of employees, but also for their employers who may be exposed to legal action and potential fines in the event of accidents at work.'
Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology draws on years of scientific anthropometric research by the company to determine the differences in face shape and sizes, by creating digital models of some 600 different touch points on the human face. This game-changing technology works by diffusing pressure over the ear to enhance frame comfort without compromising the security of fit across different facial profiles.
Weighing just 19g, the lightweight eyewear has no moving parts. It simply self-adjusts to fit a wide array of head sizes, reducing the need to stock multiple frame sizes. The secure, snug fit helps to reduce frame slippage due to head movements, and enhances frame comfort without sacrificing security of fit. The new SecureFit 400 Series also features soft, adjustable nose pads for greater personalisation of fit and padded temple touch points for added over-ear comfort.
SecureFit Protective Eyewear by 3M meets European protective eyewear standards for use in the UK, and is available in clear, grey, amber, blue mirror and indoor/outdoor lens tints.
