Bollé Safety Announces Silium+
Brand’s Most Advanced Collection of Protective Eyewear

Overland Park, Kansas – Bollé Safety, a worldwide leader in protective eyewear,
is launching its most technologically advanced, highest performing
safety glasses to date, Silium+. This new model of protective eyewear combines a
feature-rich, innovative shield-type lens with a lightweight, extremely durable chassis.

Fully compliant with all relevant international standards, including ANSI Z87.1 and EN
166, Silium+ lenses feature the brand’s proprietary PLATINUM coating. Applied to both
sides of the lens, PLATINUM provides a permanent scratch and fog resistant barrier.

To suit the needs of a multitude of workplaces and situations, Silium+ is available with
Clear (indoor), Smoke (outdoor) and (indoor/outdoor) lenses. Newly developed,
technology offers an enhanced level of blue light filtration, making it
a good choice for workers who use devices with LED backlighting, like laptops, tablets
and cell phones.

Silium+ frames have a minimalist, ultra-lightweight design with a non-slip adjustable
nose piece and flexible, ergonomic temples. Fitted with a full-coverage, wraparound
shield, Silium+ eyewear weighs less than an ounce.

“Meeting the applicable international standards was just the starting point for Silium+,”
said – Kim Hosey, Director of Sales & Marketing. “Our goals included raising the bar in
terms of optical clarity, fog and scratch resistance, comfort and durability.”
