Leading sunglass manufacturer Wiley X® Eyewear recognizes the importance of protecting peoples’ eyes against the hazards of the workplace. After all, the company has been a leading provider of protective eyewear to elite U.S. military Special Forces units and law enforcement for 25 years, enhancing and protecting eyesight in the most challenging environments on earth.
The world’s workforce deserves this same level of protection and performance – so Wiley X has included the SG-1 Goggle in its growing Safety Series product line. Like all Safety Series glasses, the SG-1 Goggle meets the coveted ANSI-Z87.1-2003 Optical, High Velocity and High Mass Impact standards, providing significant protection against eye dangers in the workplace. Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass brand whose entire line meets this ANSI safety rating. In addition, Wiley X has earned the distinguished ISO 9001:2008 Quality Certification, verifying that the company’s production processes and products meet the highest quality standards.
All Wiley X eyewear products are tested to withstand the weight of a 1.1 pound pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50 inches, as well as the impact of a .25 caliber steel ball fired at a speed of 150 fps. The SG-1 goes far beyond these standards to meet the U.S. military’s MIL-PRF-31013 ballistic impact standard of a .15-inch diameter steel projectile traveling at a speed of 640-660 fps.
Wiley X’s SG-1 features a unique design that allows it to be converted from a spectacle to a goggle and back again. Standard temples are included and can be easily removed from the frame and replaced by an adjustable elastic strap. The strap holds the SG-1 firmly on the face, while foam padding conforms to the eyes for added comfort and protection against wind, dust and debris. Regardless of the how it’s worn, the SG-1 fits securely, yet comfortably during the most strenuous work activities.
Wiley X offers the SG-1 in a variety of frame/lens packages to accommodate different workers and situations. Model 71 offers two sets of changeable lenses (Smoke Grey and Clear) with a Matte Black frame. Model 70 V-CUT combines two sets of changeable lenses (Smoke Grey and Clear) and a Matte Black frame with advanced V-Cut ventilation to reduce fogging. Wiley X’s SG-1 Model 77 combines a Matte Black frame with Wiley X’s LA™ Light Adjusting lenses, which transition from almost Clear to Smoke Grey based on the brightness of the sun. All SG-1 models are RX-ready, making them an ideal choice for workers who require prescription lenses.
