What are Safety Lenses made of ?


Our safety glasses are either made of polycarbonate, triology or trivex, or phoenix material.  All are high impact plastics that can withstand the ballistic testing.  All of the plastic used are higher index plastic to make them as impact resistant as possible.

Before you ask: No, we cannot make your prescription safety glasses with glass lenses, even though they are more scratch resistant.  Please understand that glass lenses aren’t safe, even with chemical hardening, against high-speed projectiles, or even repeated dropping.

All of the non-prescription safety glasses have polycarbonate lenses – as they are bullet proof.  Therefore making them bullet proof, the same as the prescription safety glasses.
