France, June 2011 – Honeywell (formerly Sperian), the leading reference in
personal protective equipment (PPE), is launches GUNMETAL, a brand-new safety
eyewear concept. GUNMETAL offers excellent side coverage protection, comfort
and a unique style for the wearer!
GUNMETAL safety eyewear is striking in style and extremely
light weight. Designed to meet the growing demands of users to follow sport
trends, GUNMETAL is a chic alternative for workers who are image focused. Those
in charge of safety can finally improve acceptance of eye protection among
young workers who refuse to wear more traditional designs and find safety
eyewear unattractive and heavy.

sleek style provide the user with the safety and aesthetics he or she requires
in the work place. The wrap-around lens offers a panoramic field of vision. The
excellent side and cheek coverage ensures protection. The soft and adjustable
nosepiece enables a personalized fit. The temples are dual-injected with a soft
material to prevent the spectacles from slipping in hot or damp work environments.
