Sperian Launches Fashionable and Affordable W-Series Customized for Women's Facial Profiles

New Sperian Safety Eyewear Designed for Women Offers Superior Fit, Comfort and Style

SMITHFIELD, RI--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Sperian Protection, the world leader in safety eyewear, announced today the launch of a new line of safety eyewear designed specifically for women. The W-Series offers multiple styling options, affordability and exceptional performance.

Sperian understands that a woman's face differs from a man's with its more defined brow, slender nose bridge and fuller cheek bones. The company designed the W-Series with those distinctions in mind to create a secure, comfortable, all-day fit for women -- while incorporating stylish touches such as rhinestone/metallic accents and a dusty rose frame option for added feminine appeal.

"Many women work in environments that require safety eyewear, and finding the right fit with an appealing style can be a challenge," said Kevin Beckerdite, Product Manager, Sperian Protection. "The W-Series gives women the opportunity to feel comfortable and look great while providing premium eye protection."

Sperian's W-Series eyewear features impact protection that meets ANSI Z87+ (high impact level) standards, adjustable nosepieces and 180° distortion-free vision through an 8-base polycarbonate lens. Sperian W-Series lenses are available in a range of tints appropriate for indoor and outdoor use, as well as Fog-Ban® anti-fog coating or a scratch-resistant hardcoat.

Photos of the Sperian W-Series line of eyewear are available to the media upon request. For complete product details and ordering information please visit or call Sperian Customer Care directly at 1-800-682-0839.
