Manufacturers safety endorsement
Our CE certified filters are independently tested and can be used to safely view the sun during all phases of an eclipse. All of our materials are optical density 5 or greater and are "CE" certified to meet the Transmittance Requirements of EN 1836:2005 + A1:2007 (E) for an E15 Filter for the Direct Observation of the Sun.
Also meets the Transmittance Requirements of AS/NZS 1338.1:2012, Filters for Eye Protection.
WARNING : Never observe the Sun with the naked eye or a telescope, binoculars, camera or other optical device without appropriate filters. Doing so will seriously damage your eye sight and may lead to permanent blindness. Both the eye and optical devices concentrate the extremely strong ultraviolet light from the Sun onto the retina. This can permanently destroy the retina's ability to detect light. To safely observe a solar eclipse you must use CE approved safety solar eclipse glasses such as those on sale here or use indirect methods such as pin hole projection onto a suitable surface.
Please note these solar eclipse glasses are not suitable for use with optical devices such as telescopes, binoculars or cameras, you need stronger and larger solar eclipse filters than these to protect you from the magnified sun light when using optical devices.
You will put your eye sight at risk by only wearing regular sunglasses or shades to directly view the sun.
Organise the holiday of a life time to view a Total Solar Eclipse, considered one of the most breathtaking phenomenons anyone can observe. (Be ready and buy your eclipse glasses now.)
