The marking “Z87-2+” on eyewear indicates that the glasses meet specific safety standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for personal eye and face protection devices. Here’s what each part of the marking signifies:

Z87

This part of the marking means that the eyewear is rated for essential impact protection. It meets the ANSI Z87.1 standard, ensuring that the glasses provide adequate protection against hazards such as flying debris, particles, and other potential impacts encountered in industrial and everyday environments.

-2

This designation indicates that the eyewear includes prescription lenses. The ANSI Z87.1 standard covers non-prescription and prescription eyewear, but the “-2” specifies that these are prescription safety glasses.

+

The plus sign indicates that the eyewear provides a higher level of impact protection. This means the lenses and frames have passed more rigorous testing for high-velocity impacts, offering additional protection compared to basic impact-rated eyewear.
