Firefighter Goggles, otherwise known as Firefighting Goggles or Fire Goggles, are a key element of PPE used when combating house and bush fires. Firefighter Goggles are especially designed to protect the wearers eyes from harsh conditions caused by fires and bush fires including fire, heat, smoke, wind and steam. The design of Firefighting Goggles reduces eye irritation caused by these harsh conditions and improves visual comfort. Firefighting Goggles are also designed to resist the effects of humid air (caused by fighting fires and bush fires with water), combating lens fogging and ensuring lens clarity.
At Eye Protect, we carry a wide range of Fire Goggles from leading manufactures such as Bolle Safety, UVEX & Australian Safety Wholesalers. We supply Fire Goggles across Australia to individuals and organisations including firefighters, fire crews, volunteer bush fire brigades, emergency services, farmers & rural property owners.

We also specialise in Prescription Safety Glasses and Prescription Safety Goggles. Whilst some Firefighting Goggles can be worn over Prescription Glasses, this is far from ideal. Prescription Fire Goggles are the ultimate solution for anyone faced with fighting fires and requiring optical correction.
When buying Firefighting Goggles, we recommend also buying a pair of Positive Seal Foam Safety Glasses. This means that when the Firefighting Goggles are taken off during a break or for non-fire related tasks, there is alternative protective eyewear to keep debris out of the ocular region and protect the eyes.
All Firefighter Goggles supplied by Eye Protect meet or exceed Australian Safety Standards. In particular all Firefighter Goggles meet or exceed Australian Safety Standard AS/NZS 1337.1, the standard that specifies the minimum requirements for non-prescription eye and face protectors and associated oculars.

Fire Goggles are designed to resist high temperatures, as well as to protect against dust, gas and chemical splashes (model dependant). Moisture caused by sweat on or around the face from fighting fires and bush fires, particularly in hot dry summer conditions can cause the inside of lenses to fog up. It is for this reason that Firefighter Goggles are commonly equipped with anti-fog lenses, to delay the onset of fog, ensuring crisp vision in the most challenging of environments. Anti-fog coatings are paired with anti-scratch coatings to combat lens scratching, prolonging the useful life of Firefighter Goggles. Bolle Fire Goggles are supplied with the Bolle Platinum coating, a double-sided anti-fog & anti-scratch coating. UVEX Fire Goggles utilise the UVEX Supravision Excellence anti-fog & anti-scratch lens coating.
Firefighter Goggles are designed to form a good seal on the face to protect the eyes and ocular region. Different materials are used by manufacturers to achieve the seal. Wearers can choose between foam-padded goggles (Backdraft & Ultravision) or rubber sealed goggles (Pilot 2, U-Sonic & Ultrasonic). Choosing between foam padding and rubber seal Firefighter Goggles is a matter of personal preference as both materials are designed for eye protection.
In Australia, during the summer bush fire season, Firefighter Goggles are commonly referred to as Bush Fire Goggles. Bush Fire Goggles are essential for individuals and teams fighting bush fires in Australia. Even when not fighting fires, individuals, emergency services workers & rural property owners should wear Bush Fire Goggles when in fire affected regions to reduce eye irrational from smoke, debris and wind.
