Edge Safety Eyewear glasses protect you with STANDARDS!

Edge glasses are independently tested for compliance with the most rigorous safety standards available. These are some of the tests used to ensure that our glasses provide reliable protection even in the harshest conditions. According to the CDC and Department of Labor, there are over 10,000 eye injuries in North America every day. Approximately 2,000 of these injuries require medical treatment and 3–5 days off work. Additionally, many are shocked to learn that 63% of all eye injuries happen away from work—at home and during recreational activities.

Edge glasses are tested to many standards around the world. Each glass meets the safety standard requirements that fit its intended use and locality.

CSA Z94.7
ANSI Z87.1

Spike Drop Test

Spectacle frames and lenses must be capable of resisting a 500 g (17.6 oz) spike dropped from a height of 127 cm (50 in).

Dart Penetration Test

Lenses must be capable of resisting penetration by a weighted needle with a total weight of 44.2 g (1.56 oz) dropped from a height of 127 cm (50 in).

What Constitutes a Failure?

When each test is conducted a complete device will fail if any of the following occurs:

  • Fracture of the lens
  • Penetration of the rear surface of the lens
  • Piece fully detaches from the spectacle
  • Lens is not retained by the frame
  • Lens and/or frame touches the eye area, even if the glasses remain intact.
