Honeywell announced has unveiled an innovative new line of safety eyewear combining style and customized features especially designed for today’s millennial workforce. Millennials are a tech-savvy, style-conscious generation that is pushing employers to take a fresh approach to personal protective equipment. Honeywell’s new Uvex Avatar line of safety eyewear, with 12 advanced features, offers the personalized fit, fog-free protection and attractive style options they seek.

“Millennials expect more customization in colour, style and fit in their eyewear and Avatar delivers on all fronts,” said Wanda Sanchez-Miller, senior product marketing manager for Honeywell Industrial Safety. “To encourage all-day wear, Avatar is fashioned after popular sport-inspired and recreational designs, uses advanced materials to provide a secure, no-slip grip, and incorporates innovative adjustability features to more comfortably fit an increasingly diverse workforce.”

The glasses boast eight points of adjustability and exceptional flexibility, grip and comfort, says Honeywell. 

Select pairs of Avatar come with Uvex HydroShield, an anti-fog lens coating and hardcoat, to combat fog and scratches longer in every environment. A patent-pending indirect venting system promotes air circulation to further reduce the effects of fog. 

Avatar’s nine-base wraparound lens maximizes field of vision and protective coverage, and is available in five tints —clear, gray, amber, blue mirror, and SCT-Reflect 50 — suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Frames are available in five colours: black, blue, red, teal, and yellow. Avatar meets the ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.32, and EN166 safety standards.
