ESS Introduces ICE NARO Smaller-Fit Ballistic Spectacles for FireRescue

SUN VALLEY, ID – Eye Safety Systems, Inc. has introduced the ICE NARO™, a new smaller version of the company’s popular ICE 2.4 ™ ballistic spectacles. The new product is approximately one half inch narrower between the temples, with lenses that look at home on smaller male and female faces, but also offer greater proportional coverage and full compliance with the US military specification MIL-PRF-31013 and ANSI Z87.1+ standards.

“In listening to our customers, we identified an unmet need for ballistic spectacles that fit near 25% of the Service Members, first responders, and peace officers with smaller, narrower faces,” said Brian Ross, ESS VP Sales & Marketing. “The ICE NARO will allow them to operate in comfort without sacrificing safety.”

The ICE NARO™ design incorporates a new temple style that is rolling out as an upgrade to the entire ICE™ Spectacle Series. The new temples have a narrower cross section for better comfort and integration with helmets, helmet straps, and communications equipment. They also offer a wider range of fit adjustment and easier bend-to-fit properties than the original ICE™ temples, and they are easier to install and detach for rapid lens swapping.

There are two basic varieties of the new product offered: the ICE NARO™ which includes clear, smoke gray and hi-def yellow lenses, and the ICE-2 NARO™ two-lens model with clear and smoke gray lenses. Both NARO™ kits come with a case, elastic strap, and an anti-fog cloth. All ESS ICE™ and ICE NARO™ spectacles can be fitted with the same prescription lens carriers in ESS’ Rx product line. These same carriers also fit in either the ESS Profile™ or Advancer™ series goggles.
