About BS EN166
89/686/EEC directive requires the CE symbol marking and the manufactures logo on all equipment of personal protection.
Requirements concerning the optical qualities of the eyewear ensure that users have comfortable and unaffected vision.
Standard EN166 defines three optical classes. MCR Safety generally only manufactures with optical class 1 lenses which is recommended for permanent wear.
To comply with standard EN166, the eyewear must be strong enough to withstand every day risks that might damage or affect the eye protector.
The symbol ‘F’ is the strongest level for safety glasses. This is tested by firing a steel ball at 45 m/sec. Polycarbonate lenses are used for this level of protection.
