BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY ...
...WITH BOLLES NEW PLATINUM ANTI-FOG COATING
If you are going for safety frames then you have to check out the BOLLE SAFETY PLATINUM ANTI-FOG which can be added onto any Bolle safety prescription lenses. This is not only anti-fog but also scratch resistance
The European standard only tests the scratch resistance on the outside surface of the lens and the fog resistance on the inside surface of the lens.
At Bollé Safety, they are convinced that scratches and fog do not only attack specific surfaces. This is why they have decided to permanently apply the anti-scratch AND anti-fog coating to each lens surface (inside AND outside).
This dipping process offers protection which is twice as efficient and considerably slows the appearance of fog and scratches.
