ARCO Provides Unique Eye Protection With New uvex Eyewear

This year’s Big Book catalogue from Arco has revealed a fresh new look and its biggest range of products to date, including two new uvex safety glasses. In addition, Arco has also launched a new look website which includes an online tool to help customers easily select eyewear based on workplace hazards and individual needs.

When working in any type of industrial environment protecting employee’s eyes and eyesight is essential. The two new eyewear styles from uvex have been designed to overcome a wide range of workplace challenges. uvex are the only eyewear manufacturer in the world to have permanent antifog lens coatings that do not wash off, thus prolonging the life of the product and reducing the need to remove them when most other specs will have fogged up.

The uvex racer SP, an exclusive style for Arco, features a quality design that fits multiple face shapes and the soft, flexible nosepiece offers high levels of comfort. The eyewear features a unique4Clens coating which gives the glasses permanent anti-fog, scatch resistant, anti-static and 100% UV lens protection both inside and out of the lens, at a competitive price. The uvex racer SP is an excellent solution for those working in light industrial environments.

Also available from this year’s Big Book is the pheos safety spectacle from uvex. The new style, features a frameless, duo spherical lens, in a modern, ergonomic design that offers a wide field of vision with increased protection, increased wearer comfort and therefore increased wearer compliance. The uvex pheos is also available with an amber lens which, by blocking some of the blue visible light, enhances contrast and makes it suitable for those working in low light conditions.

Both uvex safety glasses provide individual protection for the worker, but understanding what protection is specifically needed can be a challenging task. As the expert in safety, Arco has developed an online tool, available through the Arco website, to help those purchasing protective equipment select the eyewear most appropriate for their needs. The product selection tool guides users through a number of questions in relation to the hazards they are facing before recommending a product.

With 1,832 injuries to eyes reported in 2009/10[i], it is vital that employers select the correct eyewear to protect against the hazards presented in any working environment. With over 924 pages, the new Arco Big Book is an excellent reference tool for safety managers, business owners and workers throughout the UK and Ireland for selecting the best safety products and advice to keep people safe at work. Customers can order by visiting Arco’s award winning website, or by talking to an Arco expert at one of its 40 branches across the UK and Ireland or by visiting one of its 39 Trade Counters - where the Arco team is on hand to give guidance on selecting the right products.
