About These Glasses:
These are a premium set of safety glasses specifically design for working outdoors around water and clear days when damaging blue light is prevalent.
It is fairly common to see bolle take a style that is popular in its sports glasses and then engineer them into a strong version for safety. This style was first brought about in the surf community and since then had now been made into a strong FT lens and frame.
The design of the frame automatically gives sidewall protection. This came from the style rather than the manufacturers going out and adding it as a safety feature but it is nice to have nonetheless!
We only stock these in polarised lenses which are significatly better than the normal dark lenses since they refract light in a different way, hence the much higher price point.
When light reflects off a surface at a low angle it reverberates. As this light enters the eye it disperses causes glare. The polarising filter minimises this reverberated light enabling better vision and reduces the need to squint through glare.
The lenses contain specially aligned crystals which block horizontally polarized light. Acting just like a window blind to allow light through at one angle but not another. These properties make them idea for working on water, and other reflective surfaces.
Polarised lenses maintain a 100% UV filter and also block 90% of reflected directional light in additional to 22% of Infrared radiation. Many people regard these as the best lens for overall use in various conditions.
Here we have summarised the main safety standards for the frame and each lens type. After each are their specific safety markings (i.e. 2-1.2 1F). To interpret these and understand the full specifications of each pair, please see our dedicated Standards Advice Section.
