Gateway Safety points out that fogged lenses on safety glasses are not just annoying—they can also pose a serious threat to individual safety if the worker’s vision is impaired or if eyewear must be removed to clear the fog. To combat this problem Gateway has developed Swap, a glasses-to-goggle eyewear solution designed with a foam lining that surrounds a one-piece lens to block dust and debris. The design includes venting channels that help reduce hot air buildup. Swap, according to the supplier, can easily be changed from spectacle to goggle by swapping the temples for a head strap with a simple snap. Both the temples and head strap are included: rubberized two-color temples for all-day comfort and a fully adjustable head strap to fit any size head. Swap, according to the company, is independently certified by Underwriters Laboratories to meet ANSI Z87.1+ and offers 99.9% UVA, UVB and UVC protection. www.gatewaysafety.com
