Safety Glasses Testing

Expert quality testing to make sure your safety glasses stand up to any punishment in the field


PEL’s experts understand that the quality of safety glasses can never be compromised. Our safety glasses testing focuses on their ability to resist UV rays, infrared rays, and electromagnetic wave radiation; as well as dust, soot, metals, gravel debris, and also sputtering damage of chemical solutions and other hazardous liquids.

We routinely test the many types of safety glasses, including:

  • Anti-dust glasses
  • Anti-strike glasses
  • Safety glasses especially for chemical use
  • Anti-radiation glasses, etc.
