Brass Knuckle debuts Grasshopper eyewear

Sep 10, 2021

Brass Knuckle debuts Grasshopper eyewear The glasses are manufactured with Brass Knuckle’s N-Fog anti-fog coating. CLEVELAND — Brass Knuckle’s new Grasshopper dust goggle/spectacle features a soft, comfortable EVA foam dust filter with built-in air channels that fills the gap between the glasses and the face, keeping dust out. The filter also easily removes, transforming Grasshopper into standard protective eyewear. Lenses are durable polycarbonate, meet or exceed ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2020 and are manufactured with Brass Knuckle’s N-Fog anti-fog coating. N-FOG performance testing shows its anti-fog capability exceeds the world’s most stringent anti-fog standard — European EN 166/168 — lasting 15 times longer. This high degree of fog protection makes Grasshopper ideal for jobs requiring workers to migrate between widely varying temperature extremes that make fogging eyewear a true occupational hazard. They are also ideal for processing environments and other industries with refrigeration units, for workers challenged by the hottest and most humid conditions indoors and out, and for combating warm air exhaled during COVID-related mask wearing. The design features a wraparound lens for an unobstructed field of vision. Bend-but-don’t-break flexible thermoplastic rubber (TPR) grass-green temples provide hypoallergenic, non-slip comfort, adapting to any facial profile without distorting optics. Grasshopper is also fully dielectric (no metal anywhere) for an extra measure of safety.

LIVINGSTON, Texas — Mike Hale, long-time sales and marketing manager at Little Beaver Inc., passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2021. Hale’s influence on the fencing and drilling industries spanned decades. He began working in fencing as a summer job in high school. After learning the industry as a teenager, he continued installing fences across southern California, eventually owning his own fencing company for more than 20 years. After experiencing first-hand the safety and efficiency of Little Beaver’s earth drills, Hale joined the company in 1996. For the past 25 years, he has been the voice behind sales and quote inquiries, using his expertise to help customers select the drilling products to bring that same safety and efficiency to their own companies. “Mike’s impact on our company and industry has been tremendous,” said Little Beaver President Joe Haynes. “He understood the challenges our customers faced and was really able to help them find the solutions they needed. He will be greatly missed by all of us at Little Beaver, not only for the work he did but also for the person he was. We have lost a dear friend and industry advocate.” A complete obituary and service information will be posted with Cochran Funeral Home at cochranfh.com.
