Most of our men’s styles are made from Polycarbonate. This material is associated with sports or safety glasses. Savage uses it because it is light, strong and impact resistant. You’ll also see some styles with a TR90 frame which is a virtually unbreakable, strong and flexible material.
The majority of the women’s range of sunglasses are made of Cellulose Acetate Proportionate (CP). It is lightweight and can be adjusted by heat to obtain an even better fit. CP also allows Savage to produce our frames with a variety of colours & patterns within the frame. This means your beautiful patterned sunglass will keep its colour (unlike plastic which is only coated onto the outside of the frame). We also ensure the arms are reinforced for added strength.
All Savage sunglass frames are hypo-allergenic (no skin irritation associated with some plastic frames), are produced to withstand daily wear and tear and to fit with the comfort you’d expect from high-end optical eyewear.
All our lenses offer maximum UV & UVA protection and meet the standards of AU, NZ, EU and USA. The majority are filter category 3 (see below). Please note the following: 1) Lenses should not be used for direct observation of the sun. 2) Not for protection against artificial light sources e.g. solaria, and
3) Not for use as eye protection against mechanical impact hazards.
