Revolutionary Light Weight Safety Eyewear with Temple Technology

September 18, 2017 – Weighing just 19.3 grams, Gateway Safety’s new safety product is one of the lightest safety glasses on the market. Ellipse™ safety eyewear features exceptional light weight, which provides superior comfort to wearers, while still meeting the rigorous U.S. Military specification for ballistic impact resistance.

“Gateway Safety recognizes that employers are still struggling with worker compliance in regards to PPE…and that many complaints still originate from safety eyewear that just isn’t comfortable,” said Vice President Matthew Love. “That’s why the product development team here continues to work at creating more comfortable products to fit workers on the job…all day long. Workers required to wear safety glasses are simply going to love Ellipse.”

In addition to its extreme light weight, Ellipse belongs to the Temple Technology® product family, with longer temples that reach farther around the head, helping to dissipate any pressure or pinching. The soft, rubber temple tips help to hold glasses gently, but snugly in place. Plus, Ellipse is even available in NEW fX3™ premium anti-fog lens options for those needing superior anti-fog performance. Six additional lenses include gray and mirrored options.

Ellipse also offers 99.99% UV-A, B and C protection and is independently UL-certified to meet ANSI Z87+ and CSA Z94.3 standards.
