Introducing Swap(TM) Safety Eyewear - Two Products in One for Protection at Work and at Home
Gateway Safety introduces Swap(TM), a unique protective eyewear solution that comes with both temples and a head strap for dual use. Workers can wear it as a goggle while on the job, then switch to safety glasses for protection at home. Swap is a cost-effective option that can be easily turned from spectacle to goggle by exchanging the temples and head strap with a simple snap.
Sleek and lightweight, Swap eyewear combines all-day comfort with the all-around impact protection of a one-piece polycarbonate lens. The two-color temples are rubberized for all day comfort, and the head strap is fully adjustable to fit any size head. The Swap frame itself is fully lined with soft, smooth foam that blocks dust and debris. Venting channels minimize fogging and help maintain a clear field of vision. These features help increase compliance, reducing the likelihood of injuries that can happen if safety eyewear is removed, even briefly.
The lens meets ANSI Z87.1+ and CSA Z94.3 standards and offers 99.9% UVA, UVB and UVC protection. Swap is available in Clear and Clear Anti-Fog for most indoor applications; Gray Anti-Fog and Blue Mirror Anti-Fog to minimize strong sunlight and glare in outdoor applications; and Clear In/Out Mirror Anti-Fog for varying light conditions.
