In anticipation of today’s increased safety requirements, MYKITA has released the GUARD ONE, a protective eyewear shield with anti-fog technology. The eyewear piece has been developed with medical practitioners to optimise functionality and wearing comfort. Worn with other Personal Protection Equipment, such as face and respiratory masks, the protective shield works to reduce the risk of viral infection. Both EN166 and ANSI/ISEA Z87.1 certified and manufactured to the highest standards in Germany, GUARD ONE combines personal protection with the aesthetic principles of award-winning eyewear design, and it’s relevant to anyone living or working in conditions where prolonged social contact is necessary and maintaining recommended safety distances is not always possible. This includes healthcare workers and opticians, as well as professionals in hospitality, retail, and the beauty & wellness industry to name a few. With an exchangeable shield and a sporty design language, the versatile GUARD ONE can be worn as clear safety glasses or a protective sunshield whenever functional eye protection is necessary – in the lab or workshop, during outdoor activities and sports. In contrast to conventional safety glasses, GUARD ONE is a reusable protective eyewear shield optimised to be worn over most eyeglasses and/or in combination with other Personal Protection Equipment, especially face and respiratory masks. Adaptable, exceptionally lightweight and durable, the shield frame is made of MYLON, an innovative material developed in 2010 by MYKITA. This high-tech, laser-sintered material makes an ergonomically formed yet hingeless design possible and ensures comfortable long-term wear. The expansive wraparound lens shield completely covers the eye area to ensure optimal protection and clear, fog-free vision at all times. The GUARD ONE can be purchased at MYKITA stores across the planet, but if you don’t reside near one, you can also order one online.
