HELPING YOU SEE CLEARLY

The robust polycarbonate lenses in Riley glasses provide high performance protection from impacts and deliver perfect optical quality for every wearer in accordance with EN 166.

Each model in the glasses portfolio is available with a variety of lens tint options to allow safe working in a wide array of applications. Selected models also protect up to 400nm to provide maximum protection from both UVA and UVB light regardless of lens tint, absorbing the lower part of the blue light in the visible spectrum.

LENS COLOUR FEATURES
AMBER
  • Amber lenses block blue light to heighten contrast, improve depth perception and provide you with a brighter view in poorly-lit working conditions.
  • Also filters out blue light from monitors and electronic devices that can cause eye fatigue.
  • Great for overcast and foggy conditions.
BLUE
  • Blue lenses enhance vision in the presence of excessive sodium vapour or yellow light.
  • They reduce yellow light and enhance contrast.
  • Commonly used indoors but can be used outdoors as well to improve contrast levels.
GREY
  • Grey lenses reduce brightness to reduce eyestrain in moderate to bright environments, making them ideal for daytime wear and outdoor tasks.
  • The dark-tinted lenses decrease glare without distorting colours.
INDOOR/
OUTDOOR
  • Indoor/Outdoor lenses provide clarity of vision in both indoor and outdoor lighting making them an ideal choice for transport and logistics workers who can move quickly between the two environments.
POLARISED
  • Polarised lenses include a coating that protects the eyes from harmful rays by filtering out glare from reflective surfaces.
  • This makes them ideal for activities near water. Polarisation works to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of glare and sharpens your vision.
REVO
  • Revo lenses have a reflective coating on the surface of the lens, and similar to polarisation, they reduce glare.
CLEAR
  • Clear lenses provide true colour recognition and are ideal for general purpose indoor and outdoor work in normal to low light conditions.
Tecton

Models with the TECTON coating offer exceptional resistance to fogging as well excellent scratch and abrasion resistance (K and N).

The anti-fog performance far exceeds the requirement of EN 166 'N' standard.

This coating is applied to both sides of the lens and features on the majority of the Riley range as standard.

Tecton 400

Lenses with the TECTON 400 coating help prevent light at the higher end of the UV spectrum from passing through the eyewear. This coating also contains high performance anti-fogging and anti-scratch properties on both sides of the lens, whilst also being moisture repellent.

Moisture Repellant

Clarity of vision is provided for outdoor workers through the ARIDA™ coating. The moisture-repellent ARIDA coating on the outer surface helps to prevent water droplets from sticking to the lenses. The inner surface of the lenses also feature anti-fogging properties.
