As a Canberra tiler, Jorge Pereira would wear earmuffs to deaden the noise of his grinder as he cut tiles to size. He chose not to wear safety glasses “because it was uncomfortable and impracticable to wear both at the same time.” Luckily, Jorge survived his career as a tiler without damaging his eyes or ears. Sadly, however, many tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts are not so lucky.
Jorge played around with combinations of safety glasses and earmuffs before coming up with the First Generation in Eye Muffs, G1 Serious. Jorge has taken the design further and developed the next best thing in safety, a 4-in-1 system called Eye Muffs G6, comprising of safety goggles, earmuffs, face shield and a half mask respirator.
