Our lenses are safe to see the eclipse in any of its phases. They comply with ISO 12312-2 and CE standards. to ensure solar observation without damage to sight. They are manufactured in the United States with the highest quality standards. Below we explain in more detail why our lenses are the best option.
Recognized by the American Astronomical Society
We are recognized by the American Astronomical Society's Solar Eclipse Task Force as a distributor of safe solar viewers . You can find more information by clicking here .
What is the American Astronomical Society?
It is an international organization of professional astronomers. Among its members are NASA employees and professors at prestigious universities in the United States. They have taken it upon themselves to compile a list of manufacturers that have met the standards necessary to manufacture eclipse lenses.
Compliance with ISO 12312-2 standard
Our lenses have been tested by specialized laboratories and are guaranteed to comply with the ISO 12312-2 standard . This international standard describes the guidelines that solar visors must meet so that they can provide sufficient protection from harmful solar exposure during an eclipse.
In this standard, the requirements for the following properties are outlined to manufacture a safe solar visor:
- transmittance (ratio of transmitted light and incident light) at the ultraviolet, visible and infrared wavelengths that reach our retinas
- transmittance uniformity
- quality of material and surface
What is ISO?
ISO ( International Standardization Organization ) is the organization that is responsible for creating norms and standards for manufacturing, trade and communication that have an international scope. This body works to achieve a common way to achieve the establishment of the quality system, which guarantees the satisfaction of the needs and expectations of consumers.
They have CE certification
Our lenses comply with the "Essential Health and Safety Requirements" of the PPE regulation 2016/425 of the European Union . This European regulation defines the requirements for the design and manufacture of personal protective equipment (PPE). By complying with this regulation, our lenses have CE certification .
What is CE?
European Conformity certification is a regulatory standard that verifies that certain products are safe for sale and use within the European Economic Area. Certifies that the product complies with the regulations and directives of the European Union regarding safety, health and environmental protection.
