As the market leader for the optical supply industry, F&W began injection-molding crystal-clear silicone nose pads back in 1982. Silicone nose pads offer greater wear comfort due to the softer material which reduces pressure points and compensates for uneven surfaces on the nose.
Over the years, we have constantly expanded our product range of nose pad shapes and sizes - our latest successful development: the Air Pad.
All silicone nose pads from F&W are "Made in Germany" and are of course manufactured with tested materials. F&W is committed to compliance with REACH guidelines. We hereby confirm that our company has taken all necessary organizational measures to meet REACH requirements.
Over the years, F&W has observed many different material trends; one of which has remained, PVC nose pads. This pad has also been offered by F&W for many years in a wide variety of shapes such as teardrop, oval, round, D-shape and many other shapes. Beside our standard program, we also offer production of exclusive custom pads. Of course our nose pads can be provided with an individual logo. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our sales team.
Our company always uses only the best materials, which have passed all tests with regards to skin irritation, transparency and color. The softeners we use do not require labeling and do not contain any phthalates. All pads comply with REACH regulations.
In addition to silicone and PVC pads, F&W offers many other solutions made of titanium, stainless steel and polycarbonate - all of which also comply with REACH regulations. Some of these pads can also be personalized.
With wide ranging products, F&W makes it possible to respond to fashion trends and to cover any need of the customer. If your desired nose pad is not in the standard range, there is the option of an exclusive production according to your requirements.
In order to cover every eyewear feature, F&W also offers temple ends.

Additionally, an exclusive production according to your ideas and designs is possible.
