A range of protective eyewear tailored to the defense and security sectors.
A standout feature of BSSI products is the brand’s exclusive PLATINUM coating, renowned for its anti-fog and anti-scratch properties. This coating acts as an invisible shield, endowing the lenses with unparalleled durability even in the harshest environments. Applied to both sides of the lens, it guarantees crystal-clear vision in all conditions.
This comprehensive range of protective eyewear adheres rigorously to international safety standards, including ANSI, AS/NZS, and the European standard EN166, which establish the foundations for eye protection protocols. Many BSSI models also meet global military standards - MIL and STANAG, ensuring excellent ballistic protection for defense and security professionals. Each product undergoes thorough testing and is endorsed by independent laboratories (Banc Officiel d'Épreuve de Saint-Etienne, BSI, INSPEC, Certtotica, etc.), a testament to its unwavering quality.
BSSI products come in a range of CSP lens tint options, alongside the standard clear version. Each CSP tint caters to specific mission needs and enhance visibility across diverse settings. Whether braving the glare of bright sunlight, navigating dimly lit surroundings, or confronting high-contrast environments, the CSP embedded lens filtering tints and technologies provide optimal protection while maintaining utmost clarity and precision. These lenses are expertly crafted to sift through different light wavelengths, ensuring a seamless perception of natural colors and facilitating a truly comfortable visual experience.
