Barrow Tactical Goggles

Some jobs require a more comprehensive level of eye safety protection than others, jobs like those done by oil and gas line workers as well as many police, firefighters and military personnel on a daily basis. When safety glasses or sunglasses aren’t quite enough, workers often turn to goggles. But they don’t want just any goggles. They want goggles with the highest level of anti-fog ability and anti-scratch protection as possible.

Safety/tactical goggles like the Barrow Safety Goggle by Haber provide this type of high-level protection. With its more-than-rugged frame material, moisture absorbing foam and impact resistant lenses, the Barrow promises to be comfortable and durable for even the most extreme situations.

The Barrow goggle fits well over a helmet but just as well without one. The only real caution with these goggles is to remember to adjust the fan setting and make sure the battery is fresh before going into any active situation as the module is difficult to access while wearing the goggles.

For extreme situations, the Barrow Goggle provides an extreme solution. Professionals requiring an ANSI Z87.1+ -2010 impact rating and who need the assurance of anti-fog can’t go wrong with this goggle. It’s also a good fit for young adults, men and women who want the highest in safety. The Barrow even has a larger air volume inside the goggles to allow for a comfortable and secure fit over glasses too, but it also comes with the option of an Rx insert.

Liquidator Splash Goggles

Another goggle to consider in the Haber line is the Liquidator Chemical Splash Goggle. Like the Barrow, the Liquidator also comes with a variety of options (fan module, lens replacement, etc.) and are also ANSI impact rated, anti-fog and anti-scratch.

The Liquidator also features a pliable material that molds around the face, whether wide or narrow, as well as indirect ventilation to minimize fogging to provide not just chemical splash but also impact protection. The Liquidator is a good choice for many individuals working in construction or in the oil and gas industry as well as for many factory workers and lab workers who need splash and impact protection.

Haber Eliminator Fan

The Barrow and the Liquidator, along with many of Haber’s goggles, have the option of including an Eliminator Plus ® Fan Module or the Eliminator Fan. The Eliminator Plus ® is the only fan system certified “intrinsically safe” (non-sparking) by ETL to UL 913 for use in explosive environments.

Both fan modules defog goggle lenses quickly and can be set to run automatically only when needed, to run constantly, or to remain off. Though probably not ideal for situations where complete quiet is desired, such as when skiing on a serene alpine slope, the fan’s high-pitched hum won’t be a distraction in already noisy situations. Plus, it can always be switched off or to intermittent to reduce noise.

Both fan options are also transferable from one Haber goggle to another. The fan won’t dry your eyes and is sensor activated based on humidity level. While not all Haber goggles automatically come with the fan module, many of them do have the option to add the fan as an accessory should your situation warrant doing so.
