AUSTRALIAN/NEW ZEALAND STANDARDS
AS/NZS 1337.1 Personal Eye Protection – Eye and face protectors for occupational applications
This Standard specifies minimum requirements for non-prescription eye and face protectors and associated oculars. They are designed to provide protection for the eyes and faces of persons against common occupational hazards such as flying particles and fragments, dusts, splashing materials and molten metals, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols. Requirements for optical qualities and low, medium, high and very high impact resistance are given.
Safety Glasses Impact Rating
Impact protection is specified by the Standard AS/NZS 1337.1:2010
Impact protection is determined by the metres per second in which a projectile travels
A ballistic test rig fires a 6.00mm or 6.35mm ball at speeds of 12m/sec up to 120m/sec
|IMPACT RATING||VELOCITY (METERS PER SECOND)||TYPE OF PROTECTOR|
|6.0MM BALL||6.35MM BALL|
|Low Impact||13 m/s||12 m/s||Safety Glasses|
|Medium Impact||45 m/s||40 m/s||Safety Glasses, Goggles|
|High Impact||120 m/s||110 m/s||Visor Systems|
AS/NZS 1067 Sunglasses and fashion spectacles
This Standard specifies minimum requirements for sunglasses and fashion spectacles and sun glass lenses of nominal plano power – excluding (any) prescription lenses – intended for protection against solar radiation for general use, and social and domestic purposes, including road use and driving.

AVAILABLE LENS OPTIONS
Smoke Tinted – Smoke tint is ideal for prolonged use outdoors. The smoke tint reduces light intensity without impairing vision or affecting colour transmission.
Clear - Premium optical clarity maximising light transmission.
Brown Tinted – Brown tinted lenses block blue light commonly found in diffused light conditions such as on a cloudy day.
Amber Tinted – Amber tint is recommended for use in low light conditions as it enhances contrast and depth perception. Not recommended for prolonged use.
Blue Mirror – Blue Mirror coating over smoke lens, ideal in the outdoors as these lenses cut glare without interfering with colour perception.
Indoor/Outdoor Silver Mirror – Silver Mirror coating over clear lens (Indoor/Outdoor); lenses are ideal where personnel are constantly moving from interior lighting to exterior lighting.
Polarised – Polarised lenses cut glare by aligning reflected light waves into the horizontal plane. They allow for the natural perception of colour with no compromise of reds, greens and yellows.
IR3/IR5 Lens – IR3 and IR5 shade lenses protect the eyes from harmful light transmissions emitted during certain gas welding applications, brazing or cutting. NOT suitable for electric arc welding.
Anti-Fog Coating – The Anti-Fog Coating reduces or eliminates fogging on lenses.
