SAFETY EYEWEAR

EN166
Personal eye protection

Eye-protection equipment is marked with a series of numbers and/or symbols according to the field of use, the protection capabilities and performance characteristics of the eye-protector.( Note : where the ocular and the frame form a single unit, e.g. cover-spectacles, goggles, all markings are on the frame. The marking relative to oculars precedes the marking relative to the frame and the markings are separated by a hyphen.In this case the manufacturers identification mark is not repeated in the marking.)

Example of Marking
Ocular marking: 3-1.2 [S] 1 F
Frame marking: [S] EN 66-F

3 Code Number

2

UV filter where colour recognition may be affected. See EN170

3

UV filter with good colour recognition. See EN170

4

IR filter. See EN171

5

Sunglare filter ( without infra red specification). See EN172

6

Sunglare filter ( with infra red specification). See EN172

 

Note:
No code number ? for welding and related techniques. See EN 169

 

 

1.2 Shade Number (1.2, 1.4 etc?16)

Guidance is given in European standard EN169,170,171,172.
note:
Code number + shade number = scale number.
UV = ultra violet/ IR = infra red

[S]

Manufacturers dentification mark

1

Optical class ? 1,2 or 3.
The lower the number the higher the optical quality.

F, -F

Mechanical strength

S

Increased robustness

F,-F

Low energy impact of high speed particles

B,-B

Medium energy impact of high speed particles, (goggles or face shields only)

A,-A

High energy impact of high speed particles, (face shields only)

 

Other markings which may appear on oculars and/or frames

K

Resistance to surface damage by fine particles.

N

Resistance to logging

4

Liquids. For liquid droplets use goggles only, for liquid splashes use face shields only.

5

Large dust particles, (>5 microns). Goggles only

6

Gasses, vapours, sprays, smoke and fine dust particles (<5 microns) Goggles only

7
