- Safety helmets. We now stock 3 styles of hardhats and can supply other styles with special orders. Our most popular style is our model HH3 hardhat with its 4 point nylon web suspension, 13 position ratcheted headgear, and swivel support for the back of the head. Hats are available in red, white, blue, orange, yellow and green. All hats meet ANSI Z89.1 standards for head protection.
- Safety glasses with bifocal lenses. Our popular VenusX model is now available with clear and grey bifocal reading lenses in powers of +1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0. Stylish and comfortable, these glasses will keep workers safe and also enable those with farsighted vision to see close objects more clearly. These safety glasses have been certified to meet ANSI Z87.1-2003 high impact standards.
- Junior safety glasses. It’s no longer necessary workers to wear safety glasses that fall off easily because they are too big. We now carry safety glasses for smaller faces in both a traditional and a sporty style. Both styles have extendable temples to help ensure an even better fit
Under our Armor Optics brand, we carry a wide assortment of traditional and sporty styled safety glasses and goggles in several lens colors, including IR (for welding), indoor-outdoor, mirrored, light blue, vermilion and mocha. Anti-fog coated lenses are also available. All of our safety glasses provide superior performance and protection as well as a comfortable fit. Just as important, our zero distortion lenses help ensure end users will wear the safety glasses more comfortably without eyestrain or fatigue.
