Reading Safety Glasses 

 

The First Mono-lens Bifocal Safety Glasses!

Until now you have only been able to get traditional style bifocal safety glasses (a frame, two lenses and two side shields), or recently stick-on reading lenses. Elvex RX-100 is the first reading safety glass with dual curvature mono-lens and integrated side shields.

Determine the reading power you need!

According to the year 2000 U.S. Census there are over 70 million Americans in the age brackets 40 to 65 years of age. Most of these individuals will require reading glasses, and a large proportion of them will need reading glasses in combination with protective safety glasses. Elvex RX-100 is meeting an unfulfilled need!

Distributors: How big is the market for RX-100? About 75 million pairs of Plano (non prescription) safety glasses are sold each year in the United States alone. About 10% of all safety glass users require bifocal safety glasses. That translates to a market potential of 7 million pairs.

Industrial Users: How much money can your company save with Elvex RX-100? Prescription bifocal safety glasses cost about $150.00 per worker. RX-100 cost about $15.00 from your safety equipment distributor. That leaves a savings of $135.00 per worker. If you assume that 10% of your workers require bifocal safety glasses, you can easily calculate the savings. Example: if you have 1,000 workers about 100 will potentially be able to use RX-100, and you will save about $13,500.00.

One customer reported saving over $100,000.00 on their first purchase of less than 800 pairs of RX-100. How much can your organization save?
