SMITHFIELD, R.I. – – Uvex(r), the leader in safety eyewear, today announced the launch of Uvex Ignite(tm), a comfortable, sleek addition to its line of premium safety eyewear.

The lightweight, frameless design of the Uvex Ignite eyewear offers 180-degrees of unobstructed, distortion-free vision, and provides wearers with optimum safety and comfort that is fit for all-day wear. Add a boldly styled temple design and the Uvex Ignite eyewear stands out from the competition.

Uvex Ignite comfort features include an adjustable saddle pad nose piece, and soft, cushioned temple tips that encourage a personalized and secure fit. Its nine-base, wrap-around unilens provides wearers with close-to-the-face coverage and complete eye protection.

The Uvex Ignite eyewear is available in Clear, Gray, SCT-Reflect 50 and Silver Mirror lens tints and with hardcoat or anti-fog coatings for both indoor and outdoor applications.

In addition, the distinctive temples are offered in two color combinations that will appeal to a broad array of workers: hot metallic red with silver accents or gloss black with silver accents.

“Most workers who must use protective eyewear do not want to wear bulky, uncomfortable or heavy spectacles. And they don’t have to,” said Ariel Rodriguez, product manager, Uvex.

“The Uvex Ignite delivers superior protection, exceptional lightweight comfort, and a fresh look that appeals to today’s style-conscious workers.”

Uvex Ignite safety eyewear meets both ANSI Z87+ and CSA Z94.3 safety standards. All Uvex lenses offer 99.9 percent ultra-violet protection and are available in a variety of tints.
