ESS Offices Threatened By Wildfires

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Wildfires are threatening several counties in Idaho including the home of ESS. In spite of an evacuation notice, ESS will continue to support their customers as much as possible. If you try to contact the company’s main phone number you may get this message. However, employees may reach out via email or cell phones as possible.

Thank you for calling ESS. Our office is currently closed due to local Idaho wildfires burning near Sun Valley. Evacuation notices have affected our location, and we will re-open the office once those notices allow for our employees’ safe return to work. Thank you for your patience, and please check our web site for status updates about our office closure.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the ESS family and all of the residents of Idaho affected by these fires. Additionally, we hope that no firemen or other responders are injured while dealing with this crisis.

ESS Laser Protective Lens

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

ESS has introduced Laser Protective Lenses which not only provide protection from laser threats but also the same ballistic and UV protections found in all ESS glasses.


LPLs are created by impregnating dyes into ESS’ high-grade polycarbonate during the injection molding process. Each dye absorbs a specific light frequency, producing a colored lens capable of blocking the concentrated light emitted from laser devices at the specified nanometer wavelength(s) and optical density (OD).
