Patented Whirlwind ventilation system minimizes fogging.
Gateway Safety reminds workers and employers that October is the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s Eye Injury Prevention Month. The best way to prevent eye injuries in the workplace is to use proper protective eyewear, and Gateway Safety has been at the forefront of designing modern safety eyewear that is also exceptionally comfortable, helping to improve worker compliance.
Wheelz safety eyewear is no exception. Part safety glasses and part safety goggle, Wheelz eyewear combines all-day comfort with popular sport styling and the maximum splash and impact protection of a goggle. Unlike traditional goggles that can be big and bulky, Wheelz eyewear has a compact, lightweight frame made of a soft, flexible material. Plus, it’s now available with an optional foam edge that absorbs perspiration, preserving a clear view of the workplace and serving as a cushion for added hours of comfort. (Available on black frame with clear anti-fog and gray anti-fog lens options only.)
Wheelz goggles feature the patented Whirlwind ventilation system, which minimizes fogging by circulating air through the optical chamber. Ten unique conical air chambers line the frame’s brow area. Secondary air enters the goggle through ten additional ventilation ports on the frame’s underside, creating a strong “whirlwind” of air that circulates through the inner frame. Better vision increases compliance and helps prevent injuries that can happen if safety eyewear is removed, even briefly.
Wheelz are ideal for use in laboratories, doctors’ offices, and light manufacturing and industrial applications. Although it’s not required by OSHA, Wheelz safety eyewear has been independently third-party certified to meet or exceed the ANSI Z87.1+ standard and offers 99.9% UVA and UVB protection.
