Hilco Europe.

With previous traditional safety eyewear you could expect large unflattering cumbersome frames and thick lenses but with Hilco’s new range you can expect highly fashionable modern frames with removable side shields so that you can use them as normal glasses too.

Some of the Patented features include: SpinGuard™ Lens retention system (flat posterior lens lip design provides superior impact resistance substantially beyond the ANSI Z87.1-2 and EU Standards), Safe-Lok™ Locking screws (screws employ a leading edge adhesive technology to keep lenses tight and temples securely in place), Comfort logic nose pads, EZ Shield™ removable side shields and high fashion integrated spring hinges.

They’re indistinguishable in comfort and appearance from high fashion eyewear, yet safer and more durable than ordinary safety frames. A-2™ high impact safety glasses are designed for thin, light 2.0mm polycarbonate lenses, now specified in the new industrial eyewear standards.
