Gateway Safety Supplies Broadening Line of Safety Glasses for Women, Providing Style and Size Improvements for the Female Profile

November 2015 – When it comes to safety equipment, one size and style does not fit all. Women are making up growing numbers in the workforce, and Gateway Safety has launched a family of safety glasses that are designed to appeal to women in style, and provide a better fit than traditional options.  Tailoring the design to improve the fit of safety eyewear helps protect women better, oftentimes reducing gaps and increasing coverage around the eyes, where hazards may exist.

Gateway Safety’s GirlzGear® collection includes several different styles of safety eyewear with features for the female worker.  Two styles – StarLite® SM and Scorpion® SM – are actually sized 10% smaller than their popular originals, making them ideal solutions for women with smaller profiles.

“Gateway Safety does not just take a product line and slap pink temples on them, calling them safety glasses for women,” said Katie Mielcarek, Marketing Manager. “Instead, we take a careful look at the size and fit of each product, and determine how we can make them better solutions for the female worker.”

Other safety glasses within GirlzGear provide more of a style play, while still providing all the right protection. Metro™ safety glasses provide a full frame design, in four unique frame colors, to appeal to the trendy woman worker. Parallax™, the newest addition to the line, features patented temples that create exceptional comfort for long term wear, and is available in a clear lens or pink mirror lens. Parallax and Metro – along with all other GirlzGear eyewear products – are UL certified to meet the ANSI Z87.1+ high impact standard.

Safety glasses designed for women have been an important addition to the safety product industry. For additional options within the GirlzGear line, visit
