Dual-use Goggles Feature Protection Against Impacts and Splashing

Gateway Safety's Cyclone goggles offer two safety solutions in its versatile product. Users can wear the dual-use goggle as Cyclone Impact, featuring a strong polycarbonate lens surrounded by a sturdy vinyl frame. Users can also add the optional, patented Double-Take inserts.

Gateway Safety’s Cyclone goggles offer two safety solutions in its versatile product. Users can wear the dual-use goggle as Cyclone Impact, featuring a strong polycarbonate lens surrounded by a sturdy vinyl frame. Users can also add the optional, patented Double-Take inserts — the secret behind the easy impact-to-splash conversion. When the Double-Take inserts are added at the top and bottom of the goggle frame, Cyclone Impact becomes Cyclone Splash, a highly effective impact-plus-splash goggle. This two-in-one solution offers convenience for workers who require both types of goggles during one day or shift, as well as great savings for employers.

Another Gateway Safety innovation—the patented Whirlwind anti-fog ventilation system—helps prevent or reduce fogging when Cyclone is used as an impact goggle only. According to industry experts, goggles can present a greater concern for fogging than regular safety glasses because their snug fit may reduce ventilation. However, the movement of air within safety eyewear can help to lower the temperature and evaporate humidity, reducing the fogging risk.

The Whirlwind anti-fog system not only reduces the risk of fogging but also improves user comfort. Ten unique, conical air intake chambers open to the user’s brow, and ten additional ventilation ports line the underside of the frame, where secondary air enters the goggle. These openings allow air to enter, which circulates through the inner frame and helps reduce fogging.

Cyclone’s styling and lightweight design encourage compliance, even for those who wear prescription eyewear. An adjustable headband ensures a comfortable yet secure fit. Cyclone safety goggles provide impact protection at all times. Cyclone meets ANSI Z87.1+ and CSA Z94.3 impact standards.

Honeywell has released its Hybrid Energy-Absorbing Lanyard, which eliminates the guesswork involved in choosing the appropriate lanyard for workers of different weights. The lanyard is Canadian Standards Association certified for Class E4 lanyards, which are designed for lighter workers (100 – 254 pounds), and Class E6 lanyards, which are for heavier workers (200 – 386 pounds). The Hybrid Energy-Absorbing Lanyard, which is available in a variety of styles, increases worker safety by eliminating the need to stock and choose between two types of lanyards.

Safety Eyewear Is Comfortable

Gateway Safety has released Parallax, the latest product in its line of Temple Technology products, and the newest level of comfort in safety eyewear.

Gateway Safety has released Parallax, the latest product in its line of Temple Technology products, and the newest level of comfort in safety eyewear. Parallax features a patented temple design that allows for superior comfort for all-day wear. The eyewear’s temple is composed of two parallel temple pieces, with a rigid, top temple component providing stability and the lower temple component – made from a flexible polymer – acting as a cushion, minimizing pressure behind the ears. The temple’s two distinct components work together to maximize comfort without sacrificing safety. They also provide a distinguishing style.

Parallax has a single, large, wrap-around lens for exceptional protective coverage, and an integrated brow guard protects against debris from above. Its soft gel nosepiece works with the temples to ensure the glasses stay securely in place. These safety glasses meet ANSI Z87+, CSA Z94.3, as well as the ballistic impact resistance requirements for eyewear as per U.S. military performance specification MIL PRF-31013.

Earplugs Offer More Comfortable Fit

Honeywell's new Howard Leight FirmFit™ earplugs

Honeywell’s new Howard Leight FirmFit™ earplugs

Honeywell’s new Howard Leight FirmFit™ earplugs feature a softer, more comfortable fit and better noise protection than most leading classic-style foam earplugs.

A welcome advance in classic-style foam earplugs, Howard Leight FirmFit was engineered to enhance the wearing experience for individuals who prefer a firmer fit to “feel” their earplugs in their ears and who are accustomed to the familiar cylindrical or barrel-shaped earplug.

The new Howard Leight FirmFit earplugs are significantly more comfortable, provide more effective hearing protection, and exert less pressure in your ear canal than most older foam models that workers have used for years. “The bottom line is this: The more comfortable the earplug, the longer workers will wear it. That’s more protection for employees and greater compliance for safety managers—a win-win for everyone.

Independent lab tests revealed the new Howard Leight FirmFit earplugs are 40 percent softer with 29 percent lower expansion pressure than most leading classic-style earplugs.

FirmFit earplugs provide effective 30 NRR dB hearing protection and are easy to roll down and insert, with plenty of time to adjust for a proper fit; bright orange in color for high-visibility identification; and available in corded and uncorded versions.

Workers are urged to try, compare, and feel the difference of FirmFit earplugs for themselves by requesting a complimentary “Ear-To-Ear Challenge” kit online. Each kit contains a week’s worth, or five pair, of FirmFit earplugs. Workers are encouraged to wear FirmFit for a week in place of their current foam earplugs and share their experience online.
