This European Standard specifies the minimum requirements for visors designed specifically to be used only with protective helmets, including but not limited to those conforming to EN 443, EN 14052, EN 16471 and EN 16473 as the situation dictates. These visors may be permanently fitted to, or removable from, the helmet. See the scope of the various helmet standards for applications.
These visors are not intended to protect against smoke and gas /vapour hazards.
Three types of visors in two forms are described in this document.
The two forms are:
-   face guards provide both eye and face protection, and
-   eye guards that are shorter and effectively provide only eye protection.
The three types are:
-   Visors for general use: Eye guards and face guards providing resistance and/or protection against mechanical, liquid chemical and basic physical hazards.
-   Visors with increased thermal performance: Face guards that additionally provide resistance and/or protection against higher than basic levels of heat and flame. This additional requirement is not applicable for eye guards.
-   Mesh visors: Eye guards and face guards that incorporate mesh oculars with defined levels of performance from EN 1731, and other additional mechanical requirements described in this standard.
Visors for sporting use, those with corrective effect, and goggles used with a protective helmet are not covered by this standard.

This standard includes test methods for testing functional performance and the specification of the user documentation to be supplied with the product. The screens are designed to protect the user from: unintentional exposure to direct and/or diffuse laser radiation; a time limited exposure to laser radiation, based on the functional requirements determined by risk assessment. This European Standard applies to supervised screens for installations in working places at which laser radiation up to a maximum mean power of 100 W or single pulse energy of 30 J occurs within the spectral range between 180 nm (0,18 μm) and 106 nm (1 000 μm). This European Standard applies to the protection against laser radiation only. This standard does not apply to other hazards including hazards from secondary radiation that can arise during, for example, material processing. This European Standard gives guidance on how to select such screens. Laser enclosures and housings that are supplied as part of the laser product or are supplied to be fitted to a laser system to form a laser product (according to EN 60825-1) are not considered to be within the scope of the standard.

This European standard specifies requirements for automatic welding filters which switch their luminous transmittance to a lower predetermined value when a welding arc is ignited (referred to as welding filters with switchable scale numbers). It also specifies requirements for automatic welding filters which switch their luminous transmittance to a lower value, where the lower value of luminous transmittance is set automatically in dependence on the illuminance generated by the welding arc (referred to as welding filters with automatic scale number setting).
The requirements of this standard apply if such a filter is to be used for continuous viewing of the welding process, (including gas welding and cutting), and if it is to be used only during the period when the arc is being ignited.
These filters are used in welders' eye protectors or are fixed to equipment.
If they are to be used in welders’ eye protectors, other applicable requirements for these types of filters are given in EN 166. The requirements for the frames/mountings to which they are intended to be fitted are given in EN 175.
Guidance on the selection and use of these filters is given in annex A.
The specifications for welding filters without switchable luminous transmittance are given in EN 169.

Three types of visor are described in this document. One provides protection against general hazards; the second additionally provides protection against heat and flame. The third type of visor incorporates mesh oculars, and is intended for use in very limited circumstances. This document also describes two forms for all three types of visors; face guards that provide both eye and face protection; eye guards that are shorter and effectively provide only eye protection.
The requirements of this document do not apply to visors intended for use without a helmet. Such requirements are given in EN 166.
Visors with corrective effect are excluded from the scope of this document.

This European Standard applies to eye-protectors used for protection against accidental exposure to laser radiation as defined in EN 60825-1:2007 in the spectral range 180 nm (0,18 μm) to 1 000 μm. It defines the requirements, test methods and marking. A guide is given in Annex B for the selection and use of laser eye-protectors.

This European Standard specifies physical properties (mechanical, optical etc.) for sunglasses and sunglare filters of nominal plano power which are not prescription lenses, intended for protection against solar radiation for general use, for social and domestic purposes, including road use and driving. This European Standard specifies also requirements for filters for the direct observation of the sun (e.g. during eclipses). Guidance for selection and use of these filters is given in Annex E. For sunglasses and sunglare filters for industrial use, EN 166 and EN 172 apply.
This European Standard does not apply to eyewear for protection against radiation from artificial light sources, such as those used in solaria. EN 170 applies for these filters.
This European Standard does not apply to ski goggles, for which EN 174 applies, or other types of eye protection used for leisure activities.
This European Standard does not apply to sunglasses and filters that have been medically prescribed for attenuating solar radiation.

This standard specifies specific functional requirements and a product labelling system applicable to a range of temporary and permanent passive guards (in the following called screens) for protection against laser radiation. This standard includes test methods for testing functional performance and also the specification of the user documentation to be supplied with the product. The screens are designed to protect the user from uncontrolled emission of direct and/or diffuse radiation for a defined exposure to lasers, based on the necessary functional requirements for any particular application being determined by risk assessment principles. This standard applies to supervised screens for installations in working places at which laser radiation up to a maximum mean power of 100 W or single pulse energy of 30 J occurs within the spectral range between 180 nm (0,18 µm) and 106 nm (1000 µm). This standard applies to the protection against laser radiation only. This standard does not apply to other hazards including hazards from secondary radiation that can arise during, for example, material processing. This standard gives guidance on how to select such screens. The following are not considered to be within the scope of the standard: - laser enclosures and housings that are supplied as part of the laser product or are supplied to be fitted to a laser system to form a laser product (according to IEC 60 825-1:1998); - any screen whose protective properties are limited to a restricted range of angles of incidence (e.g. some interference filters).
