If protection against high-speed particles at extreme temperatures is required then the selected safety eyewear product should be marked with the letter T immediately after the 'Mechanical Strength' letter; eg: FT, BT or AT.
If the 'Mechanical Strength' letter is not followed by the letter T, the safety eyewear product shall only be used against high speed particles at an ambient temperature.
If the frame and lens display different certification marks (F, B or A), the lowest level should be assigned to the entire safety eyewear product.
