Frequently Asked Questions

ANSI Z87.1 is the general safety standard used to denote whether a pair of glasses meets general safety requirements. Z87+ denotes that a pair of safety glasses is high impact ballistic rated.

Generally, it takes between 7-10 business days from the date of order to the shipping date. Certain coatings and additional items may delay this time, but if it is going to take longer, one of our Customer Service Representatives will reach out to you.

Glasses must be stamped with Z87+ if they are high impact rated AND Z87.1 for general safety. Otherwise, they only need to be marked with the manufacturers mark. Detachable side shields will be marked separately from the main lenses.
