Specsavers combines style and safety with JCB glasses

  • 10 Oct 2017

Specsavers has added four new frames to its collection of JCB prescription safety glasses.

Jim Lythgow, director of strategic alliances at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare said: “Known globally, JCB’s brand is synonymous with quality, safety and durability. These attributes are reflected in our range of JCB safety glasses and the styling reflects an understanding that aesthetics are as important as comfort and fit, if safety glasses are to actually be worn.”

The lenses are available in glass, plastic and polycarbonate, having each undergone various safety tests. In addition, all frames have side shields featuring the JCB branding.

The four new polycarbonate frames are:

  • JCB 5X – grey polycarbonate frames with clear interior and inbuilt shire shields and black acetate temple tips with JCB yellow chevrons
  • JCB 5X – blue polycarbonate frames with clear interior, built-in side shields and black temple tips with the JCB yellow chevrons
  • JCB 4CX – black to clear ombre effect polycarbonate frames with solid arms featuring JCB branding at the temples
  • JCB 3CX – deep-red translucent frames with wide rectangular lenses and JCB branding at the temples

Paul Tudor, senior licensing manager for JCB, comments: “We believe we have created a range of prescription safety glasses that people will be proud to wear.”

24 JCB frames are now available, offering various options, from diverse designs and styles, to greater colour combinations, and different frame sizes, in men’s, women’s and unisex designs. 

All JCB frames can be purchased by the employer under Specsavers Corporate Eyecare’s eVoucher system, making them easily available to all employees.
