San Juan Construction Builds In Safety With Defog It Anti Fog For Safety Glasses

At San Juan Construction, a general contractor with projects throughout the U.S. and around the globe, the company motto is, "Safety first, people always." Safety glasses on the job are standard, and now Defog It anti fog has been added to the safety gear after on-the-jobsite testing at a North Carolina project.

Valley View, OH (PRWEB) - At San Juan Construction, a general contractor with projects throughout the U.S. and around the globe, the company motto is, "Safety first, people always." Safety glasses on the job are standard, and now Defog It anti fog has been added to the safety gear after on-the-jobsite testing at a North Carolina project.

Heat and humidity, changing temperatures, and cold can trigger fogged eyewear. In a construction workplace, perspiration from exertion can also be a factor. "Heat and humidity are usually the problem," says Josh Hollingshead, the Project Cost Controller on the San Juan North Carolina job. "In the summer it'll get up to 100% humidity sometimes."

San Juan had tried other anti fog products with limited success, so it was decided to test Defog It in a real-world working situation. A field test was arranged with Defog It supplying samples for the crew. The results proved positive, resulting in purchase. "I received word this morning that the [Defog It anti fog] wipes came in, and everyone is using them," he reported in an email the day his first shipment arrived. "And they really work great. I just thought I would pass on the reviews from the field and thanks for a great product."

"No worker should ever have to take of their safety glasses because of fogging," says John Swett, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Defog It by Nanofilm. "That's why Defog It is formulated to prevent fog in the toughest environments."

Defog It is the safety choice in some of the harshest workplace environments, including mining, utilities, pulp and paper, steel and law enforcement. Case studies are available at the Defog It website, http://www.defogitworks.com, along with research and whitepapers on preventing eye injuries, demonstration videos and product information.

First used by the military worldwide, Defog It anti fog is proven in the toughest workplace environments where heat, cold, humidity and exertion cause fogged safety eyewear. Defog It is available as a liquid or reusable cloths and is safe and effective on safety glasses, goggles and faceshields.

Lab tests confirm the Defog It's high performance. In one test, a lens treated with Defog It was held over constant hot steam for 60 minutes without fog forming. Similar products failed in as little as 5 minutes. In another test, lenses coated with Clarity Defog It were moved between cold and hot environments 100 times without fog forming.

Nanofilm (http://www.nanofilmproducts.com), founded in 1985, is the maker of Clarity Defog It and a global optical leader in lens care and coatings. Millions of people around the world use Nanofilm products, including Clarity Clean It™, Clarity Defog It™ and other lens care products, as well as nanotechnology-enabled coatings.
