Select Frames Meet ANSI Z87.1 Safety Standards
The ANSI Z87.1 standards for protective eyewear regulate lens coverage & impact resistance to protect against such hazards as impact, optical radiation, liquid splash, dust and fine particles. All Epoch Eyewear products marked Z87.1 or Z87+ have passed Test 5.2.1 Drop Ball Impact Resistance, Test 6.2.2 High Mass Impact Test, Text 9.6 Drop Ball Text, and Text 9.11 High Mass Impact Test.
All Epoch Eyewear products are produced with shatterproof materials and meet the ANSI Z80.3 standards for eyewear. However, some products (depending on lens size & frame/lens fitting), pass the additional requirements to meet the ANSI Z87.1 standards for safety. ANSI Z87.1 is a requirement for many occupations and sometimes preferred for certain activities such as motorcycling.
