PRESCRIPTION Safety Glasses (PSG) will demonstrate the use of a ballistic testing cannon to test prescription safety eyewear on Stand 116 during National Manufacturing Week 2006 at Sydney's Darling Harbour, from May 30 to June 2.

The testing cannon, used as part of PSG's quality assurance program, will graphically demonstrate the differences in lens materials and the consequences of using inferior products in safety eyewear.

Through an exclusive association with Australia's leading optical laboratory ESSILOR, PSG offers a comprehensive range of optical products to all regions and industries in Australia and South East Asia.

PSG products are available through a national and international network of over 300 independent eye care professionals.

Each frame model in the PSG range is tested to meet rigorous impact and optical performance standards and exceed the Australian and international requirements of AS/NZs1336, AS/NZs1337, AS2228, ANSI Z87.1-2003 (medium impact) & EN166-F (low energy medium impact).

PSG is continually searching for new safety spectacle frames to ensure it offers the best possible selection to meet the needs of employers and employees alike. Its frame range includes items for use in all industrial applications including electrical trades, laboratory and health care industries and general manufacturing.
