Kimberly-Cark Professional adds two designs to its Jackson Safety eyewear line.

Roswell, Ga., July 27, 2010—Kimberly-Clark Professional’s Jackson Safety brand is introducing two new additions to its trusted Smith and Wesson line of protective eyewear, the 44 Magnum and the Aviator.

The introductions reflect Kimberly-Clark Professional’s commitment to offering today’s workers a wide variety of ergonomically advanced, stylish and comfortable protective eyewear products. The new offerings are the latest additions to the Smith and Wesson protective eyewear line, which also includes the Caliber, Elite, Equalizer and other popular styles.

“The Smith & Wesson 44 Magnum and the Aviator protective eyewear are both contemporary and comfortable,” said Christine Hand, category manager for Kimberly-Clark Professional. “Safety directors are continually looking for eye protection with both of these features, because style and comfort drive compliance, which helps keep workers safe.”

The 44 Magnum safety glasses are “not just another pair of eyewear,” according to Hand. “It was created after extensive end-user research and was specially designed for the Smith & Wesson line.”

The 44 Magnum protective eyewear includes a number of new and innovative ergonomic features designed for long-term performance and all-day comfort:

· A cut-to-shape, distortion-free, one-piece lens.

· A flexible nose piece that easily conforms to different nose shapes, provides comfort for all-day use and includes a patent-pending design.

· Vents on the temples to help increase air flow.
