3M CX7000 - Premium Safety Assurance by 3M Safety Glasses
Investing in a quality piece of safety eyewear always pays huge dividends in the future. 3M is a renowned safety equipment manufacturer and the biggest provider of glasses for industrial workers. It offers the widest-ranging variety to cater to different kinds of safety hazards at the workplace. 3M Protective Eyewear is the most sought after choice for most industrial workers due to its aesthetic design, unrivaled comfort & unmatched robustness. This article explains all the attributes which must be embodied by a premium safety gear for eyes.
- ANSI Compliance
Compliance with regulatory standards is essential by a PPE manufacturer. ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standard Z787.1 ensures shatterproof durability against serious accidents. This is usually done by ANSI marking etched on the surface of the lenses to signify their compliance. The very standard protects users from high impact (blunt trauma); toxic liquids or chemicals; debris; foreign projectiles; and other sharp objects.
Contemporary manufacturing technologies have allowed most top-notch PPE manufacturers to craft glasses with a visual appeal as well. Manufacturers understand the users need to look good while working, which has become a norm at workplaces nowadays. 3M CX7000 provides a unique visual appeal with its metallic frames around lenses providing an elegant look. 3M offers its users the confidence which comes from donning up premium quality safety eyewear. The very eyewear’s retro look also provides a nostalgic feeling to its users, which is often quite valued at workplaces.
- High Impact & Scratch Resistant
Polycarbonate is the primary material used in lenses. This is essentially a thermoplastic material which promises shatterproof durability against high impact accidents. It is also impervious to scratches which prevent the glasses from premature degradation, thus enhancing their shelf life. ANSI testing is a rigorous process in which the durability of a given lens is assessed from all possible angles. They include internal dislodgement of the lens; fragmentation; and breakage. An object is dropped from a very short distance at a high velocity. If the lenses pass the aforementioned test, they move on to the next phase of testing. After passing all examinations, the lenses are marked with an approval seal. For preventing scratches, 3M’s proprietary Anti-Rugged Scratch Coating prevents any scratches to form on the surface of the lens.
- Variety of Lens Tints & Types
3M CX7000 comes in many lens tints and types. They fall in two broad categories – Prescription & Non-Prescription ones. The prescription ones come in bifocals; trifocals; and progressive lenses. This helps users in correcting their vision problems with the option to protect their vision from hazards at the workplace. As mentioned before, Polycarbonate lenses allow safety to be combined with RX option.
- Side Shields
Protecting the peripheral areas around your eyes is equally important. There is a danger of any kind of foreign object, debris, sparks, splashes or liquid or fine sediments coming in contact with your eyes. For this, side shields play an instrumental role in preventing such hazards.
