Advantages Of Engleberts Wooden and Bamboo Sunglasses
Hey, It's not cheap plastic! That should be reason enough! But let's go into some more detail.
Bamboo is an evergreen flowering plant. The word bamboo comes from the term bambu, which was introduced to English through Indonesia and Malay. Wooden sunglasses just look and feel better than plastic.
- Polarized Lenses: Light tends to scatter in all directions, but when it's reflected from flat surfaces, it tends to become polarized. Meaning it travels in a more uniform direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of reflected light that causes glare and reduces visibility. Polarized lenses eliminate or reduce glare. Our lenses are specially designed to offer 100% UVA and UVB protection even in intense lighting conditions. Without polarized protection, depth perception is reduced, distorted view and color perception occur and in some cases, you could be temporarily blinded. Polarization is useful for many outdoor activities including driving, extreme sports, water sports, and fishing. The benefits of polarized sunglasses are endless and can save your vision!
- Eco-Friendly: Engleberts Wooden sunglasses are sustainable. Bamboos are some of the fastest-growing plants on Earth with some types having reported growth rates of up to 3 feet in 24 hours. Bamboo requires no fertilizer and self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn't need to be replanted.
- Handcrafted: Each pair of Engleberts sunglasses are individually handmade with premium wood and artisan engraved. Due to differences in wood grains, no two will be exactly alike. How unique you are.
- Value: Each pair of Engleberts comes with a free soft microfiber pouch, a microfiber cleaning cloth and sunglass straps.
- Quality: Bamboo has a higher specific compressive strength than wood, brick or concrete and a tensile strength that rivals steel. Now don't go trying to hammer nails with your new sunglasses as they are handcrafted with delicacy and should be treated as such.
- Floating: Engleberts Bamboo sunglasses float in water. That's right, no more losing your glasses on the boat (although we provide free sunglass straps, so that doesn't happen anyway), because these glasses will float (doesn't apply to mirrored sunglasses). But please do your best to keep them dry, your pleasure will last much longer this way.
- UV 400 Protection: Engleberts Sunglasses have UV 400 protected lenses. What is UV 400 you ask? UV 400 indicates an eye protection item that has been optimized to prevent eye exposure to both UVA and UVB radiation. One of the biggest differences between UV 400 protected items as compared to other items that protect against the sun's radiation is the fact that UV 400 protected items are capable of blocking light rays as small as 400 nanometers. This means that anywhere from 99 to 100 percent of the sun's harmful radiation is kept away from the eyes, which can give you a big advantage in eye protection.
- Spring Hinges: Provides a greater range of motion and comfort to accommodate different sized heads, also makes your sunglasses able to withstand everyday use.
- 9 Layer Cat 3 Lenses: Cat 3 Lenses are the highest rated lens you can wear and still drive.
- Anti-Reflective: Improves vision, reduces eye strain and makes your eyeglasses look more attractive.
