The Best 1064nm Laser safety glasses SPG Blog

Safety Protection Glasses carries a full range of laser safety glasses, windows and sheeting and Laser Barriers. Our laser glasses cover the most popular wavelengths for a variety of lasers but if you are looking for 1064nm laser glasses how do you know which are the Best 1064nm Laser Safety Glasses that you should be considering?

We have put together the below list which should help you to work out which of the laser glasses that cover a 1064nm wavelength would be best for you.

What Is a 1064nm laser?

This type of laser can be used for a variety of purposes including manufacturing, skin care and aesthetics, dentistry, and medicine.

YAG stands for yttrium, aluminium, and garnet, and is a is a synthetic crystalline material of the garnet group. YAG is commonly used as a host material in various solid-state lasers.

 The reference to 1064 is the nm (or nanometres) corresponding to the laser wavelength.

What laser glasses are available?

Below is a selection of our most popular laser safety glasses for the 1064nm wavelength. All our filters are available in these frame types but your will find many more on the website.

Model 17001

A larger fitting frame which is popular for medium to large head sizes, the 17001 is a rectangular wrap around frame.

This frame has proved a top choice amongst those seeking a durable and comfortable fit, largely due to its rubber temple ends which help to relive pressure points and hold the frame in place.

The 17001 is constructed from Tr-90 nylon and comes with integral side shields which provide additional side protection while you work.  The large lenses help to provide the maximum viewing area possible.

Model 33

A staple for those seeking fit over glasses, the Model 33 is a non-prescription large frame which will fit over your existing prescription eyewear to provide protection while you work. These frames will fit over most models of prescription eyewear.

While these frames are designed for both men and women, they are best suited to those with medium to large head sizes.  

The 33 are fitted with large lenses which provide 360 degrees protection in any segment and are constructed from TR-90 nylon which makes them lightweight and extremely durable.  

The Model 33 are designed with straight temple ends so these frames can be easily removed throughout the day.

Model 300

A unique frame which can be fitted to most head shapes thanks to its ratchetting temple ends which can be adjusted to fit. The frame is suited to small – large head sizes.

The rectangular frame is made from high quality TR-90 nylon which ensures it is light and can be worn throughout the day.

The 300 model has been designed with bent temple arms which work to keep the frame in place without much movement.

Model 808

A classical frame with a wrap around style, the Model 808 is one of our most requested safety frames for both laser and radiation protection. 

This is due to its rubber nose pads and rubber temple ends which hold the frame in place while reducing pressure points on the head.  

It is also constructed from TR-90 nylon which makes it lightweight, impact resistant and chemical resistant.

The temple arms on this frame are straight and work as a benefit to remove the frames quickly and easily when needed.  The frame is available in black or silver.
