These shades are designed for use in the lampworking and blacksmithing industry. Much better than simple clear safety glasses many of us use which offer little to no UV and IR protection. Manufactured by Phillips Safety one of the world leaders in occupational safety products the lenses are formulated by a company with over 100 years experience. Weather you are a hobbyist or a long term professional, safety should be as important at home as in the workplace. We offer 2 different shades the “G5” shade which offer a higher level of protection, good for well lit workshops and the “G3” shade which offers slightly less protection but provides more visibility in a darker shop. Disclaimer: Gameco employees and Phillip Safety are not optometrists, and thus can only make suggestions about eye protection. There are many types of eye protection available.

Phillips BoroView 3 & 5 lenses  are designed to meet the need for the extra UV and IR protection needed when working on borosilicate glass. These lenses offer a revolutionary formulation designed to exactly meet the needs of those working with the harder, higher temperature of borosilicate glass.  Phillips BoroView are specially formulated Polycarbonate filter lenses that Phillips Safety Products designed for the lampworking and glassblowing markets.  This revolutionary product is greatly lighter than conventional laminated and glass products, and comes in a full coverage lens which is a higher quality design because there are no areas without shading. If you are working with smaller pieces, the BoroView 3 is for you. For larger pieces like candlesticks and  statues, you will need the BoroView 5.  BoroView’s should be worn when working on hard glass types where regular Phillips202/ACE or Polycarbonate Sodium Flare (SFP) Lenses are not adequate due to the fact of insufficient filtration of ultra violet and infra-red absorption.
