Bolle Safety Glasses, Goggles and Shields
Bolle is one of the world’s leading producers of safety glasses, goggles and shields. It produces eyewear designed to protect against a range of hazards, from ultraviolet light and impacts to hazardous chemicals and extreme heat.Bolle Safety Goggles and Glasses
Bolle was originally founded in France in 1888 and in 1936, the company started making sunglasses, and then expanded its range of eyewear over the following decades. Today, Bolle produces a wide range of safety eyewear to suit various environments and needs. Bolle Safety protective gear ranges from ordinary-looking sunglasses to heavy-duty firefighting goggles. The company also produces more specialised ranges for welding and other industrial activities, as well as a line of eyewear products designed for law enforcement and military use. All Bolle Safety glasses are made to meet demanding European safety standards.Lenses
Most Bolle lenses are made from polycarbonate, although some of their clear lenses are acetate. Polycarbonate lenses provide a notable safety advantage as they are over 10 times more impact-resistant than glass. They also naturally filter ultraviolet radiation. For extra protection and performance, Bolle applies a range of advanced lens coatings. Their Platinum lens coating is applied to both sides of the lens and protects against scratches and fogging. The company also applies different specialised optical coatings, including B-HD, which increases light transmission well beyond typical clear lenses, B-ESP, which shuts out 57 per cent of blue light and reduces glare and B-Contrast, a protective gradient lens.Frames
Safety glasses, goggles and shields require durable frames in order to withstand hazardous environments. Comfortable long-term wear is also a priority. Flexible frames and adjustable bridges provide a comfortable, custom fit that keeps your eyewear unobtrusive. Some Bolle designs feature the advanced B-Flex bridge, which uses pliable shape-memory material to mould itself to your face and keep its shape when taken off. Pivoting temples allow Bolle Safety glasses to adapt to your face shape, with some boasting up to 160 degrees of possible flexion. The Equalizer lens system uses a double lens with a regulation patch that manages moisture levels, preventing them from fogging in cold or wet conditions.Face Shields
As well as standard safety goggles and glasses, Bolle produces full-face shields for protection against electrical hazards. The Sphere face shield provides high-level protection against chemical splashes, hot materials and electrical arcs. It can also be equipped with a specialised shield for welding use. Bolle also makes higher-coverage welding helmets that cover the entire head, such as the Flash and the Volt, which features an auto-darkening filter.
