Smithfield, RI — New from Uvex is FitLogic(tm), the first safety eyewear to offer a custom fit for any face. Utilizing a combination of design and material technology, FitLogic allows wearers to adjust their eyewear at four different points to match their own custom fit profile.

Uvex FitLogic incorporates an innovative frame design with a cushioned, lightweight browbar that adjusts to any face shape. Soft and flexible with spring-like action, it has enough tension to fit comfortably on wide faces and securely on narrow faces. A pioneering nosepiece design rotates 360 degrees, pivots, and slants in and out to provide a precise fit for almost any nose bridge. In addition, the temple arms ratchet up and down, then click securely in place to contour fit cheek profiles. The soft temple tips lengthen with a precise sliding action to provide better behind-the-ear comfort and infinite adjustment possibilities.

FitLogic also features a floating lens design that provides excellent ventilation to minimize fogging. The extended wraparound lens also provides extra cheek and side coverage. Made of optically perfected polycarbonate, FitLogic lenses block 99.9% of UV rays and are available with Ultra-dura(r) hard coat or Uvextreme(r) anti-fog coatings. Quickly and easily replaced, FitLogic lenses are available in a wide selection of tints for various applications.

FitLogic utilizes a combination of new technologies to achieve its revolutionary design. Uvex is the first company to bring a patented In-Mold Assembly (IMA) process to safety eyewear. This process produces fully assembled pieces that are capable of infinite incremental adjustment. Uvex also uses a patented Multi-Material Technology(r) in the FitLogic line to provide cushioned comfort at all points of contact. Soft materials provide extended comfort for all-day wear.

Uvex FitLogic safety eyewear exceeds ANSI Z87+ and CSA Z94.3 standards. Assembled in the USA, FitLogic eyewear is 100% dielectric and is backed by the Uvex lifetime frame guarantee.
