When choosing laser safety glasses, it’s important to choose the right type. Laser tools often vary in intensity and require different levels of protective glasses depending on the machine.
This can be easily determined by looking at the operating parameters of a laser. This will determine which glasses or goggles should be used for that machine. It’s also important to invest in high quality glasses, as the cheaper, mass-produced types are not always crafted to a level that will provide the best protection for eyes and skin.
High quality safety glasses will be able to provide protection for Class 3R, Class 3B and Class 4 laser systems. However it’s recommended that the specifications of the glasses are checked before using them with any laser tool. Some manufacturers of safety glasses will be able to engrave a logo or lettering into the frame also, this of course depends on the manufacturer whether or not they offer this as an extra.
