New Series of Protective Eyewear from 3M Takes Comfort and Security to the Next Level
Dual-injected padded temple touchpoints and adjustable nose-pads among many new features
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Eyewear discomfort is a thing of the past with 3M’s newest line of protective eyewear, the SecureFit 400 Series. With proprietary self-adjusting Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology and adjustable nose-pads, the 400 Series takes comfort to the next level.
The series features polycarbonate lenses that absorb 99.9 percent of UVA and UVB rays, dual-injected temples and motion-inspired, contoured piping that adds a touch of style with a bold, modern color. Available in clear, gray, and indoor/outdoor, the 400 Series enhances temple comfort without sacrificing security of fit.
“The 400 Series incorporates a variety of unique features that make it a leader in comfort and protection in the personal protective eyewear industry,” said Deb Walker, product marketing, 3M Personal Safety Division. “Combine those features with the benefits of Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology, and you’ve got a safety solution on which you can count.”
3M researchers developed Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology after completing a comprehensive study that examined different face shapes and sizes from around the world. The study identified approximately 600 different touch points on the human face that then guided the design and fit of protective eyewear lines. The key benefits of pressure diffusion temple technology are: a secure, comfortable fit; its ability to self-adjust to a wide array of head sizes which may ultimately reduce the need to stock multiple frame sizes; and reduced frame slippage during head movement.
