If we don't protect the environment – there is no Future. That's why we never compromise on environmental responsibility. All our packaging, from the small inner boxes to the big export cartons, is made from recyclable paper. Also, they carry the well known recycling symbol. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but the requirements are tough. In addition to using carefully selected papers, we also use ecologically low-impact inks and varnishes on all our product packaging.
Future complies fully with the EU rule on Chemicals – Reach – which is administered by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). We are also members of BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), through which we carry out approved and certified audits of our production plants. More information about BSCI can be found at www.bsci-intl.org.
You can trust us to always protect your eyes with our products. All Prestige sunglasses comply with European standard SS EN ISO 12312-1:2013. The sunglasses are categorized after how much visible light they filter out.
The table below indicates which conditons the different lens category are suitable for.
Filter category 0 - Dull
Filter category 1 - Weak sunlight
Filter category 2 - Average sunlight
Filter category 3 - Strong sunlight
Filter category 4 - Exceptionally strong sunlight (Not suitable for driving)
The frame item number and the lens filter category number are printed along the inside of the bow. This makes it easy to always choose the best fit for your specific needs.
Prestige offers eyewear with several types of lenses. Naturally, all lenses block ultraviolet UVA- and UVB-rays. Most of our lenses consist of shatterproof acrylic, but we also use unbreakable polycarbonate for certain special purpose frames. Particularly those used in sports activities. The most common lenses are recommended for use in the following situations:
Yellow, orange and amber lens Gives better contrast in poor light, e.g. dusk, fog and snowfall. Perfect for skiing, bicycling and shooting. These lenses are also suitable for driving in low visibility conditions.
Normal tinted lenses These lenses (known as normal sunglass lenses) considerably reduces sunlight and gives correct colour rendition. Available in grey, green and brown. Suitable for everyday wear.
Polarized lens Absorbs horizontal reflexes and glare from water surfaces, wet roads, and snow. Suitable for driving, skiing or sailing.
