WORKS OF ART IN KILN-FORMED GLASS
HEALTH & SAFETY - NON-IONIZING RADIATION
For non-ionizing radiation, Infrared (IR) is the frequency of most concern to kiln glass artists.
Wear appropriate protective lenses. ANSI (American National Standards Institute) has standard shades for blocking IR and visible light transmission:
Remember - the goal is to minimize IR transmission, so the LESS the IR transmission, the better. However there is a trade-off. Decreased IR transmission means decreased visible light transmission so the more protection you get, the harder it will be to see through them.
Basic Rules for Infrared Radiation Exposure:
