Globus® is creating a new era in protective eyewear with the launch of Riley® – a brand new range of high performance safety glasses and goggles designed to deliver the perfect combination of comfort, protection and style.
Created by a dedicated team of safety eyewear experts with decades of experience, the launch of Riley®represents a completely fresh approach to eye protection. Engineered using the latest safety eyewear technology, innovative designs and unique performance features, Riley® is ideally suited for workers on the transport and logistics sector.
Key developments include the TempFLEX™ system – flexible, Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) side arms and temple tips giving an exceptional feeling of comfort around the ears whilst gripping securely. Further design features include an inclinable temple mechanism, adjustable nose bridge and length adjustable temples, enabling the wearer to create a high comfort, tailored fit for their individual face shape.
Robust polycarbonate lenses provide high performance protection from impacts, delivering perfect optical quality in accordance with EN166 whilst three specialist coating technologies have also been developed – the Riley TECTON™, Riley TECTON™ 400 and Riley ARIDA™.
For enhanced durability on the inner and outer surfaces of the lenses, the TECTON™ coating, available as standard across the majority of the range, delivers the highest-grade anti-scratch and anti-fog treatments available. The TECTON™ 400 coating offers high level UV protection whilst moisture-repellence is provided for outdoor workers through the ARIDA™ coating.
Every model in the glasses range comes with a variety of lens tint options allowing safe working in a wide array of environments and conditions.
The contemporary and sports designs are available in full frame and single lens variations along with wrap-around and panoramic options. There are also non-metallic versions – designed for critical environments.
A full RX polycarbonate prescription range is also available via Riley’s in-house prescription service ensuring a dedicated and responsive service.
Where wider impacts and splash protection is required the new Riley® goggles are lightweight and comfortable thanks to the soft PVC/TPE frames including comfort nose bridge and padded seals.
Protection is delivered through impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses offering a wide field of vision, with the option of an accompanying face shield, guarding against wider liquid splashes and airborne particles. Several models in the range can also be worn over prescription frames.
“Globus has built a reputation as a world leader in hand protection by setting the standard for safety, productivity and ‘wearability’. Talking to our customers, it was clear that when it came to eye protection, the market was very traditional, slow to react and all too often delivering products that were unnecessarily overcomplicated.
“We saw an opportunity to take a completely fresh look at eye protection and created Riley®, which strips out the traditional problems and delivers exactly what the market needs; high performance protective eyewear engineered with innovation, ingenuity and high level comfort. Each model is crafted to exceptional standards with a distinctive, modern style,” said Haraldur Agustsson, Globus Group Chief Executive.
