Home » WileyXÂ® Airborne™ model offers industrial workers sleek styling and extensive safety features
Bring on the dirt. Bring on the glare. Bring on the wind. Bring it all on because you’ll be ready with the Wiley X® Airborne™ safety-rated sunglasses built tough enough for work, but cool enough for play. From machining to assembly to work on an oil rig, these RX-ready glasses have been designed specifically for the special safety needs of the industrial workplace. A member of the Wiley X feature-packed Climate Control™ Series, the Airborne glasses were created by the same designers that developed the company’s U.S. Military grade glasses. This means precision, safety and ultra functionality were principal factors when crafting these performance safety glasses.
The design of the Wiley X Airborne begins with meticulously crafted comfort and fit. The Airborne includes Wiley X’s patented removable Facial Cavity™ seal made of soft, comfortable foam, which easily snaps in and out of the frame, virtually presenting a pair of glasses and goggles in one. The seal works to keep wind, dust and debris out of the wearers’ eyes and features the company’s special Top Down™ Ventilation to prevent fogging while hard at work.
The Wiley X Airborne glasses are constructed from some of the world’s most indestructible materials. The ANSI Z87.1-2003 safety-certified frames are fashioned from tough Triloid Nylon, so they can stand up to even the most challenging work environments.
The Airborne lenses play two vital roles: providing for paramount clarity as well as ultimate safety. Far exceeding ANSI Z87.1-2003 safety and optical standards, each lens is crafted from shatterproof Selenite™ Polycarbonate and is finished with a scratch-resilient T-Shell™ hardcoat to protect against scratches and nicks. The Airborne is available in various lens tints including smoke grey, polarized smoke green, LA™ Light Adjusting bronze and clear.
While safety and clarity came first, perhaps the best thing about the Wiley X Airborne glasses is that designers have taken all this advanced technology and transformed it into great-looking glasses that workers will want to wear. With frames available in gloss black, matte black and metallic black, the Airborne is a truly striking pair of glasses. Fitting medium to large head sizes the Airborne can also be fitted with prescription safety lenses that meet ANSI Z87.1-2003 safety requirements. When it comes to protection, no one beats Wiley X, the only premium performance sunglass manufacturer whose entire line meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact standards.
