What are full-vision goggles or full-protection goggles?

Many hazards that lurk in the laboratory affect the eyes. Dust particles, radiation, splashes of chemicals or metal particles can enter the visual organ and cause sometimes serious and sometimes irreparable damage. For this reason, safety goggles are often required in the laboratory to protect the eyes. On the one hand, they offer maximum safety, but on the other hand they are comfortable to wear and provide sufficient all-round vision.

Full-vision goggles make this possible by sealing the eye area all around with a flexible sealing edge. This form of safety eyewear thus provides optimum protection against the hazards encountered in the chemical and other industries.

Safety at work: discover even more protective equipment for the laboratory and for industrial tasks.

Advantages of full vision goggles compared to open safety goggles

For some applications and activities, it can make sense to choose full-vision goggles instead of the familiar open goggles. These offer the following advantages, for example:

  • Additional protection due to all-round seal
  • Optimum protection even against invisible hazards, such as radiation
  • perfect all-round visibility even in the periphery
  • flexible adjustment and high accuracy of fit
  • can be worn over corrective glasses

However, there are also some disadvantages. These include, for example, a higher weight and the risk of fogging, which exists depending on the model of the goggles.

When are full safety goggles necessary?

In the field of occupational safety, it is essential that employers ensure the personal safety of their employees. Precise details are regulated in the Occupational Health and Safety Act and in the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Usage Ordinance. In addition to chemical aspects, the type of hazard can also include optical, thermal, biological, electrical or mechanical hazards. In many laboratories, full-face goggles are part of the mandatory personal protective equipment.

Other fields of work or application in which full-vision goggles may be prescribed:

  • for welding work
  • in dusty environments
  • when working with laser radiation
  • when handling chemical hazardous substances

All safety spectacles must comply with the relevant valid standards EN 166 (general basic requirements), EN 169 (welding safety goggles), EN 170 (UV protection) and EN 172 (solar radiation).

Full vision glasses your choice at MedSolut.com

At MedSolut.com you can purchase full-vision goggles from two well-known manufacturers of protective equipment. You can rely 100% on the quality and service of the brand manufacturers Dräger and BÜRKLE.

Full view goggle series X-pect 8500 from Dräger

The protective eyewear series from Dräger combines reliable eye protection for many industrial applications with high wearing comfort. Maximum UV protection of 99.9%, high chemical resistance and CE certification according to EN 166 are guaranteed. With special anti-scratch and anti-fog coatings and a close ergonomic fit, these full view goggles provide optimum protection.

UltraVision full view goggles from BÜRKLE

With BÜRKLE’s UltraVision full vision goggles you are always on the safe side. An anti-fog coating and an additional ventilation system ensure optimum clear vision. The tight fit, the low weight as well as the unrestricted side vision offer an excellent wearing comfort with simultaneous fulfilment of all DIN/EN standards.

Full vision goggles for spectacle wearers

When considering safety glasses, spectacle wearers should not only take safety requirements into account, but also their personal needs. Here, full-vision goggles have an advantage over conventional safety glasses, as they are usually wide enough to comfortably wear prescription glasses underneath. Most full-vision goggles also have an elastic headband that makes them comfortable to wear and prevents pressure points from the temples.

Alternatively, full-vision spectacles can also be equipped with ground safety lenses that optically correct the individual’s visual performance. These corrective full-vision glasses are specially tailored to the needs of the employee and are therefore not easily interchangeable.

Full-vision goggles: design variants and options

Various models are available for the different areas of application, which differ in decisive features.

Goggle materials

The material of the lenses plays a very important role in choosing the right safety goggles. In addition to chemical resistance, spark-resistant and mechanically stable materials are also important to increase protection in the corresponding application cases. Furthermore, UV protection, weight and optical class are of decisive importance for practicability. Anti-scratch coatings and anti-fog coatings are also included in the list of requirements.

Lens performance

Separated lenses prove to be useful and invaluable in many cases. Particularly in radiation applications, tinted glasses can filter out different colour frequencies. Furthermore, tinted glasses serve to reduce light intensity, which is of enormous importance for welding work, for example. Unsure about your colour choice? Yellow and orange tints, for example, increase contrast in diffuse light conditions and optimise depth of field. Our team will be happy to advise you on the correct tinting.

Defogging

Fogged up glasses are not a must. Nevertheless, condensation of moisture on the inside of the lenses is a frequent topic of discussion among laboratory personnel. To prevent this, many goggles have an anti-fog coating which prevents the formation of droplets on the surface by changing the surface tension. In addition, there are ventilation systems where covered ventilation slits allow air exchange and still prevent the penetration of liquids.
