I Forge Iron

Shade 3 safety glasses

Recommended Posts

i dont know the answer to this but would like to! are you meant to wear a proper shaded safety glass for forge work? i thought no but what is the actual truth coz it always makes my eyes feel bad after too long or if the fire is too bright... what is the best thing to wear?

I did read one post where someone suggested a shade 2, the most important aspect being IR/UV protection, which is not necessarily a result of the tint. I imagine though that some shade is better, especially when working in bright light for long periods. Part of my concern though is to find out whether shade 2, or 3 glasses are impact resistant. I read somewhere that polycarbinate lenses offer some of the best impact protection but does that mean that a Shade 2 polycarbinate lens in impact resistant just because it is polycarbinate?
