Safety Glasses or Goggles?
Safety glasses are a good choice when impact protection is most important. Safety glasses should not be worn if you are trying to protect your eyes from liquids, vapors, or dust. In these cases a goggle is the better option.
Which safety goggles are right?
Before buying, you should make sure that the type of goggles, matches the application. Here are some common types of goggles:
Direct Vent Goggles
These goggles are designed to promote airflow to help reduce fogging. These goggles are good for protection against impacts but do not meet the need for liquid splash protection, vapor, chemical, or dust exposure.
Indirect Vent Goggles
The purpose of these goggles is to protect the wearer from liquid splashes. This type of goggle should not be used where chemical gases or vapors are present. They do allow some airflow, and this helps to reduce fogging, but these types of goggles will fog up more than the direct vent goggles. Select a goggle with an anti-fogging coating for the best reduction of fogging.
This goggle has no venting and offers protection against vapors, liquid, and dust. They will fog up quickly, and should always have an anti-fog lens.
