Made in the USA Manufacturing
More and more American consumers are making the Made in USA choice to help boost the economy. Radians is making that choice as well, and we're on a mission to manufacture more products in the USA with the addition of our new manufacturing facilities in Dallas and North Carolina.
Eyewear Testing & Standards
Because of our global presence and our culture of safety, Radians tests products to meet or exceed standards, including ANSI Z87.1+, VO Ballistics (0.15 caliber), CSA Z94.3-1992, EN166:2001, AS/NZS 1337, ASTM F1506, and additional standards for Asian Pacific
distribution. We also have in-house testing facilities within our headquarters where our hearing and eyewear protection are tested for ANSI/ISEA safety standards.
Because of our leadership commitment to hearing protection, our sophisticated Sound Acoustic Laboratory has received accreditation in the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP - Lab Code 500090-0), which is administered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. NVLAP accreditation signifies that a laboratory operates in accordance with NVLAP management and technical requirements.
Our eyewear is also tested and inspected by third party, globally accredited, independent laboratories. With our adherence to standards and testing, you can feel confident about Radians products meeting all necessary safety standards and regulations.
