RS introduces safety eyewear selector tool

September 2019 IS & Ex

RS Components has announced availability of a new online tool that makes it easier for customers in their selection of protective and safety eyewear for a wide range of industrial applications.

Targeting PPE (personal protection equipment) professionals including purchasers and end users, the ‘3M Eyewear Product Selector’ essentially helps customers make decisions on choosing the right protective eyewear by asking a short series of questions to establish the most suitable PPE/safety product for their application.

Major considerations for protective eyewear users in industrial environments will include serious hazards involved in the use of chemicals, for example, or environments where high-speed solid particles are flying around. Other important criteria to consider in the selection process include expected light levels available for workers, whether the eyewear will be used indoors or outside, the level of user comfort required (especially if a user will be wearing protective eyewear all day and every day), and whether a specific user wears prescription lenses or not.

All these issues are addressed by the selector, enabling customers to make the right eyewear product decision. The selector is available at: https://za.rs-online.com/web/b/3m
