Phillips Safety’s line of Hot Glassworking Eyewear features prescription and non-prescription safety eyewear for every type of hot glassworking application and associated art. All of our glassworking lenses are optical-quality German glass, and our plastic lenses are optical-quality and scientifically engineered for the best VLT in their class. Lenses include IR, UV, and sodium flare protection, in various shades and combinations of these coverages. If you need Hot Glass working eyewear for artistic or scientific applications we have what you need here.
Phillips202 – The Phillips 202 blocks UV and sodium flare and is used for torch work for bead making and silver soldering. This is the traditional glass lens often referred to as “rose glass” or “didymium.”
Sodium Flare Poly – These are the same as our Phillips 202, but they use a plastic lens instead of the traditional glass. This makes them lighter and more affordable.
BoroTruView 3.0 – Phillips BoroTruView 3.0 lenses are made for the true glass-working artist. These lenses are specially designed to offer excellent color recognition while working with colored glass while still providing UV, IR, and Sodium Flare protection. If you are working with smaller, more delicate pieces the BoroTruView 3.0 is for you.
BoroTruView 5.0 – Similar to the Truview 3.0 these lenses are also designed with the same excellent color recognition when working with colored glass while still providing UV, IR and Sodium Flare protection. For larger pieces like candlesticks and statues, you will need the BoroTruView 5.0.
BoroView 3.0 – The BoroView 3.0 blocks infrared UV, IR, and Sodium Flare. Shade 3.0 is used for smaller torch-work with borosilicate glass such as marbles or pendants, as well as clear glass.
BoroView 5.0 – The BoroView 5.0 blocks UV, IR, and Sodium Flare. Shade 5.0 is used for larger borosilicate torch-work such as large vessels, colored borosilicate, and torch-work with thick rods.
Quartz Working Glasses – These are used when working with quartz glass. They have a lighter shade on top and a darker one on bottom, allowing you the best of both worlds, with ample protection from high-temperature torches when needed, and better vision when not.
Lampworking Split Lenses – Our split lens glasses come in a variety of combinations of the Phillips 202, Green IR 3.0, and Green IR 5.0. Useful for when you need to switch between different types of protection throughout your work.
