The 5X3 and 5X7 designs also have the benefit of ‘soft pad’ technology. This feature is a patented process that enables the spectacles to adapt more readily to the contours of the wearer’s face, and provides the added advantage of extra stability within the supportive areas of the eyewear. Both these designs have the option of orange coloured lenses for use when light curing.
In the 5X3 design, Univet applies its UDC (Univet double coating) process. This breakthrough technology enables the eyewear to resist scratching on the outer surface, as well as resistance to fogging on inside surfaces.
The 5X7 design can also be adjusted, allowing the user to set three different length settings.
Another useful feature found in design 5X7, 506UP, 549, and 546, is anti-fog plus. This is a lens surface hardness treatment that prevents the formation of condensation through the absorption of humidity droplets. It helps prevent fogging, and permits a clear view, even in difficult environments.
The range also includes the 553 Zero Noise clear wrap round spectacles. Made entirely from ultra lightweight poly carbonate, and weighing only 19 grams, the reduced temple section is specifically designed for use with ear protection. This can be useful when treating anxious patients that require noise cancelling headphones or are listening to music.
An alternative lightweight design comes in the form of the 568 design, which is also made of clear polycarbonate, weighs only 23 grams, but has been designed to suit smaller faces.
The company can provide full-face protection visors in the form of their model 711 anti-fog visor that is classified as optical Class 1, disposable.
These high quality products have been ergonomically designed and manufactured to offer maximum eye protection to dental operatives, together with high levels of comfort and durability. Univet states that it is one of the only companies that can offer a comprehensive range of both magnification and safety eyewear that satisfy so many diverse professions and industries, and its products conform to, and surpass the requirements laid down in European standard EN166.
