Excellent eye protection
Safety spectacles from uvex have won several prizes and awards, including the following:
iF Design Award 2018 for uvex x-fit
The uvex x-fit weighs just 23 grams. But those 23 grams are fully packed with comfort, protection and features. This makes it an obvious choice for the safety-concerned wearer with high standards – and also a well-deserved winner of the 2018 iF Design Award.
pro-K award Winner 2017 for uvex pheos cx2
With the uvex pheos cx2, we are setting new standards for professional safety spectacles – and the judging panel of the prestigious pro-K award also agreed. Since 1979, the pro-K Industrieverband Halbzeuge und Konsumprodukte aus Kunststoff (Confederation of Industries for Plastic Semi-Finished and Consumer Products) has presented this award to outstanding products made from plastic.
Red Dot Product Design Award 2016 for uvex pheos cx2
Brand of the Century – Stars 2016 for uvex astrospec 2.0
The uvex safety group and one of its most important product ranges – safety spectacles – were named amongst the "Stars 2016" in the 2016 edition of Marken des Jahrhunderts ("Brands of the Century"). The compendium is published every three years by the "Deutsche Standards" publishing house and presents the strongest and most famous German brands from different industries.
"We are very happy about this accolade! It validates the investments in our brand communication and motivates us to continue our focused pursuit of this approach", said uvex safety group CEO Stefan Brück at the presentation of the "Stars 2016" awards in Berlin.
Following the inclusion of uvex ski goggles in the "Brands of the Century" in 2010, the panel of renowned experts decided to also honour uvex safety spectacles with an award, using the example of the uvex astrospec 2.0.
iF Design Award 2015 for uvex u-sonic
The uvex u-sonic full-vision goggles received the iF Design Award 2015. They combine optimal protection for the entire eye area, good climate properties, and an outstanding fit that avoids unpleasant pressure points – this was enough to win over the competition jury.
Top 100 Innovator of the Year 2011
With its "Eyewear" strategic business unit, uvex Arbeitsschutz GmbH was one of the 100 most innovative SMEs in Germany in 2011. In addition, a well-defined innovation process ensured that the company came in first place in the "Innovative processes and organisation" category.
German Design Award Special Mention 2013 for uvex i-3
The German Design Award judging panel awarded prizes not just to one, but to two uvex safety spectacles in 2013: In addition to an award for the uvex pheos, the uvex i-3 received the Design Award in the Special Mention category.
