DIN EN 170 - Ultraviolet protection filters
In the standards for special product requirements, DIN standard EN 170 specifies the protection levels and transmission requirements for ultraviolet protection filters. Exposure to ultraviolet light for too long can cause the lens of the eye to lose its transparency, possibly resulting in impaired vision or loss of vision. Protective eyewear lenses conforming to EN 170 therefore meet performance requirements that protect the eye from ultraviolet radiation during hazardous work.
In contrast to the welding protective filter according to EN 169, the UV protective filters are not suitable for direct or indirect observation of an electric arc.
