Football Visor: The Complete Buying /Importing Guide

I don’t want you to suffer from either eye or face injuries whenever you’re playing football.

It is for this reason that I want to take you through a simple guide on how to buy or import football visor.

A football visor is an important safety accessory that you can fit on your helmet.

It will protect your face from injury and guarantee an optical class 1 surface.

Chaper1: What is Football Visor?

Simply put:

A visor is a small and curved material, mostly made of plastic material which you can fix on football players’ masks, helmets, shields, etc.

Normally, this is a tough plastic material that can withstand impact and guarantee optical class 1 surface.

Also, you can even add more technologies to its surface, thereby, improving vision.

Surprised?

You shouldn’t, I will take you through all that shortly – just stay with me.

Here is what I am talking about:

But first, let me make a few critical points clear:

Depending on the type of surface treatment, this football visor will protect you from glare and fog.

It is for this reason that helmets with football visors are common in the American Football.

As you can see, players use them to prevent possible eye injuries.

Or to avoid suffering from further eye injury as you recover from an existing eye injury.

Still, they look stylish – so you can use them to improve your appearance.

But that’s not all:

Some players use them as an appropriate method for preventing rivals from reading their next possible moves when playing.

Additionally, other NFL players also wear visors as an ideal way of expressing themselves.

You see, some of these visors may have specific colors and patterns, which could be visible on the exterior parts.

So it can work in a way that it distinguishes a player from the rest who are in uniform.

Now, let me take you a step further and explore another important aspect about football helmet visors.

Chapter 2: Football Visor Material

Let’s face it;

Anything that you’re wearing on your head when gaming needs to be as lightweight as possible.

Reason:

It will enhance your flexibility when moving around the field.

Besides, it must not feel like a burden to you.

Basically, what I am saying is that, the football visor for helmets or shields must be lightweight.

In fact, the visor covers the eye area only.

Therefore, it would be weird if a relatively heavy material is attached to that section.

weetect football visor

But still, the light material has to be durable and resistant to various adverse conditions not forgetting providing efficiency during gaming.

So, which material is best for football visor?

· Polycarbonate Sheet for Football Helmet Visors

Ordinarily, polycarbonate material is the best when it comes to helmet, making helmet visors – it’s both light and strong.

With a polycarbonate sheet, you’re assured of all, the protection you need without having to add too much to a helmet.

Solid polycarbonate sheets for football visor

Solid polycarbonate sheets

I know, this may seem confusing and you could be asking yourself:

What is polycarbonate material?

And, why should you choose it?

Don’t worry, I will explain:

A polycarbonate sheet, also abbreviated as PC, is a unique plastic known for it’s excellent mechanical, chemical and optical properties.

It is made up of carbonate groups.

At times, you can also identify this material under the trade names Makrolon®, Makrofol® or Lexan®.

Polycarbonate chemical structures

As you can see from above, polycarbonate sheet comes as a solid sheet.

Therefore, depending on manufacturing needs, you can shape polycarbonate sheet to a suitable shape and design.

In engineering or material processing, we call it thermoforming.

Anyway, that is a subject for another day – let’s get back to the key subject here.

Polycarbonate sheet is a perfect choice for football helmet visors due to the following properties.

· Properties of Polycarbonate Sheet for Helmet Visors

Some of the main properties of polycarbonate sheets include:

  • High impact strength
  • Ease of fabrication, machine and thermoforming
  • Excellent resistance to heat or high temperature
  • Better electrical insulation properties
  • High flexural, tensile and shear strength
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Low deformation under load
  • Superior optical properties
  • Better chemical resistance

By the way, this does not mean that polycarbonate sheet is 100% perfect – No, that’s not the point.

What I want you to see here is the primary reason why it’s a perfect alternative.

Otherwise, it is neither fog nor scratch resistant.

It is for this reason that you need to process it further.

That is, add the coating that will improve its optical properties.

Don’t worry I will take you through that in chapter 4.

What’s the bottom line here?

Football helmet visors are mainly made from thermoformed solid polycarbonate sheet.

Chapter 3: Classification of Football Helmet Visors

During the 98th session of the National Football League (NFL), a friend who was planning to venture into the football helmet visor business raised this question:

Which types of football helmet visors should I import for my business?

Of course, that wasn’t the first time I was coming across a question dealing with the classification of football helmet visors.

So, it is definitely a fundamental aspect I must explore in this football helmet visor buying guide.

Anyway, let me take you through a quick classification criteria:

3.1 Shapes and Designs of Football Helmet Visors

When it comes to the shapes and designs of football helmet visors, I can tell you for free that they are several.

They come in different shapes, sizes, colors, designs, etc. – the list is just endless. Just take a look at these:

Different types of football helmet visors

Different types of football helmet visors

When it comes to choosing any helmet visor for football, you must pay utmost attention to the following:

  • National Football League Rules (NFL Visor Rules)
  • National Federation of State High School Association Rules (NFHS Football Visor Rules)
  • National College Athletic Association Rules (NCAA Rules on Visor Rules)

I will explore some of these rules later in this guide – keep reading.

The bottom line:

Whichever design you opt for, it must not contravene any of these rules.

3.2 Injection Molding Football Helmet Visors

There is nothing unique here.

Injection molding is the process of shaping solid polycarbonate sheet to form a suitable design and shape of helmet visors.

It is a common manufacturing process in the plastic manufacturing industry.

So, even the above classification criteria will depend on the injection molding process.

Ideally, injection molding football visors gives these accessories the right curvature.

Depending on the design requirements of football helmet visors, the manufacturer will choose an appropriate injection molding machine and technique.

Good examples of injection molding football helmet visors are the WeeTect foot visors.

I will also discuss more this accessory later in chapter 8.

Injection molded football helmet visor

 Injection molded football helmet visor

In short, for OEM partnerships, it is important to adopt a high quality and reliable injection molding machine.

This way, you will have helmet visors that are unique to your market niche.

Besides, you will also remain competitive.

Apart from these two, another important classification criterion is:

3.3. Types of Football Helmet Visors Depending on Surface Treatment

I am not going to explore much here since I will revisit some of these factors shortly.

But, just to have a quick overview:

You may also classify different types of football helmet visors as:

  • Clear football helmet visors; they retain full clarity when preventing eye injury
  • Tinted visors; they protect eyes from direct contact with opponent by reducing the degree of light transmission. Remember, there are rules that prohibit players from using these types of visors – I will discuss that later too.
  • Polarized helmet visors; they reduce glare by filtering UV radiations

Clear vs. tinted helmet visor

In short, the criteria for classifying different types of football helmet visors may vary broadly.

But more importantly, you need to adhere to the set rules and regulations.

Having said that, I know every football player wishes to have a helmet visor with the latest and the best technology.

That is exactly what I am going to discuss in chapter 4.

Let’s go straight to that.

Chapter 4: Football Helmet Technologies – Here is How to Improve Football Helmet Visor Performance

As I mentioned earlier, polycarbonate material is not 100% perfect.

For instance, it neither eliminates glare nor fog.

Besides, it is susceptible to scratches.

Therefore, even though you’ll have an impact resistant football helmet visor, it may not guarantee optical class 1 surface.

Let’s see how to improve polycarbonate football helmet visors:

4.1: Mirror Football Visor or Reflective Football Visor

You know the essence of football visor is generally to protect the eye and reduce glare to the footballers when playing.

To enhance the performance of football visor, it should eliminate glare or reflections.

anti glare football visor

Technically, you’ll find that many manufacturers nowadays incorporate a reflective football visor element.

This component enhances the performance of the visor considerably.

First, it helps in reducing the excessive light from penetrating through the visor by 10% to 60%.

This is precisely in regions with snow, water, sand and high altitude.

If you are a football player obsessed with grey or brown colors, this is the best alternative.

Here’s what most people don’t know:

You see, when you’re playing, be it under floodlights or bright sun; the chances are high that excess light will get into your eyes.

Obviously, this will bar you from having a clear view of both the ball and opponent.

And that’s where the mirror coating on your visor becomes handy.

It reduces the effect of excess light.

Thus, you can see the ball and opponents clearly.

More resources on anti-glare products:

4.2: Anti-fog Football Visor

It’s a hydrophilic anti-fog coating that depends on molecular interaction to eliminate fogging.

At times, you can find yourself playing under the unfavorable humid weather.

When you’re wearing football visor, fog will definitely form on the lens’ surface.

The truth is:

Fogging is not limited to humid weather.

As an NFL player, you’ll obviously sweat and thus, fog will form on the inside surface of the visor.

Definitely, this will obscure your vision when playing and probably reduce your performance in the field.

In this case, an anti-fog football visor becomes essential.

It helps in making sure that it absorbs all the watery elements on a visor and keeps it clear and dry.

visor with and without anti fog coating

One side with fog and the other without

The anti-fog football visor technology is environmentally friendly and costs competitive. Moreover, it is also reliable and a permanent anti-fog solution to apply on your football visor for better performance.

Again, in case you want to learn more about anti-fog solutions, here are useful resources for you:

4.3: Anti-scratch Football Visor

It is an ideal technology that helps in preventing the football visor from scratches. Scratches on a visor lens may make it look unattractive.

Again, it can also prevent you from having a clear vision, especially when playing. At times, scratches on a football visor are inevitable.

For example, when you’ll be playing, the surface of the helmet visor gets in contact with various elements. They may cause scratches on the surface.

By applying anti-scratch coating, the surface will remain free of any abrasion even after several washings.

Clear Football visor

Clear Football visor

But, what defines a good anti-scratch solution for football helmet visors?

It should be one that can withstand rough handling and several items of washing. This is the only sure way to guarantee an optical class 1 surface.

To learn more about anti-scratch coating for football helmet visors, here is a resourceful link:

4.4: Photochromic Football Visor

This particular technology is essential in enhancing your visibility while playing wearing a football visor.

Photochromic football visors automatically transit from clear to tint on exposure to ultraviolet radiation threshold, this is a reversible process.

This what at times we call the self-tinting helmet visor.

And by the way, this is how a self-tinting helmet visor works:

So this makes it relatively easy for you to adapt to the particular prevailing condition because of this transition ability.

There’s no need to carry an extra football helmet visor.

With the photochromic coating, it will automatically tint, protecting players from the sun’s harmful radiation.

Photochromic football helmet visors are quite fascinating.

You can learn more about this technology here:

4.5: Polarized Football Visor

Light from the sun can cause glare, temporary blindness or reduced depth of perception.

The action of polarized technology in eliminating this menace is compared to none.

Polarized football visor features a special co-mold technology that filters all vertical light.

It only allows only horizontal light to pass through.

This element, particularly blocks any harmful UV rays and provides a brilliant high contrast view.

Polarized football visor

Moreover, blocks debris as well as wind.

So when playing football, you’re sure of better airflow, it is lightweight and fits your football helmet quite better.

You are therefore guaranteed a crystal clear football visor.

For more information on polarized technology, please follow the link below:

4.6: Iridium Football Visor

Iridium football visor comes in different light transmission that varies from 9% to 60%; you can choose from different tints, light transmission.

Besides, you can also choose from the different protection index to suit the desired football playing environment.

Iridium Football Visor

Iridium provides better efficiency than just mere good looks.

It reduces glare and also works pretty well in daylight or when there is excess light.

The good news:

Even when you’re playing under bright sun or floodlights, you’ll still be able to have better vision.

Also, you can consolidate it with other technologies such as:

  • Anti-fog
  • Anti-scratch
  • Hydrophobic, etc.

Basically, iridium coating of helmet football visors regulates light absorption, reflection, glare and light transmission.

They come in different shades including blue and gold.

Therefore, you can choose that you’re comfortable with.

It will all depend on your preferences or what you believe works better for you.

4.7:  Chrome Football Visor

Chrome football visor is popular for increased contrast.

Moreover, the chrome coating technology offers beautiful vivid colors.

All these ensure that the football visor maintains an optical class 1 property.

Smoke chrome visor

Besides, this guarantees 100% safety.

Depending on your needs, you can choose from many options in the market from locust chrome to fire chrome.

Incorporating this technology into the football visor lens helps in providing ideal UV protection from various components.

With the chrome coating, alongside anti-fog, UV resistant and anti-scratch coating, your football helmet visor will remain clear at all times.

As a result, you will focus on the game at hand.

Also, it is 100% distortion free, which is essential because it makes it possible for you to have a perfect vision of the action.

4.8: Tinted football Visor

Tinted football visor is not only fashionable, but available for a wide range of weather conditions depending on the desired VLT.

You can choose from grey, dark brown or green tinted football visors.

It doesn’t matter whether you want to increase contrast, perception, protect eyes from strong sunlight etc.

There’s a suitable visor tinting technology for you.

Clear vs. tinted helmet visor

Clear vs. tinted football helmet visor

Nonetheless, it is worth noting that various tinted visors have a different percentage of tint.

It is critical to know the precise tint percentage content that the football visor you’re buying contains.

Please note the following when it comes to tinted football helmet visors:

Even thou some players may use this as a way to hide their eyes from opponents, in some instances, they are prohibited.

For example, in country level games the use of tinted football visors is illegal.

Reason:

Your opponent must see your eyes.

Therefore, you can opt for either mirror clear or clear football visor.

Now, this is what the NFL, NFHS and NCCA rules say about tinted football helmet visors:

  • NFL rules state that a player can only use tinted visors after obtaining a doctor’s note. Thus, he/she must have a league approval to use tinted football helmet visors.
  • NFHS rules prohibit any player from using tinted football visors. It goes ahead to reiterate that the visor must be molded from rigid material.
  • NCAA rules state that all football visors must be free from any tint. Besides, being molded from rigid material.

4.9: Hydrophobic Football Visor

Hydrophobic football visors feature unmatched performance, convenience, and reliability. This coating is always on the outer surface of football visor.

Hydrophobic coatings eliminate moisture, water droplets, glare due to water droplets and contaminated on surfaces.

Water on hydrophobic polycarbonate sheet

The truth is:

This element contains a technology that repels water.

Ideally, hydrophobic football visors are easy to clean and maintain.

This is advantageous because it increases its efficiency even in adverse climatic conditions.

4.10: Optical Injection Molded Football Visor

Optical injection football visors are durable with outstanding impact resistance and very low distortion rate.

They are molded from high-quality polycarbonate that withstands reinforcement without cracking.

The technology helps in making sure that these football visors are fog-resistant, anti-scratch, and are designed into the right VLT.

With an optical injection molding, you can manufacture football visor of any designs both standard and custom-made designs.

The bottom line:

By the end of the day you’ll have superior quality football visors that are durable, sleek and also allows for the best gaming experience.

4.11: UV Resistant Football Visor

UV resistant football visors eliminate the possibility of ultraviolet radiations reaching the eye surface.

At every stage, any adoption of a new technology aims to guarantee safety.

The optical injected or co-molded football visors with UV resistance feature alongside other technologies such as iridium, polarized, photochromic, etc.

UV Resistant

All these ensure that the football visors are 100% protected from UV radiation.

It is significant because it helps in enhancing your skin condition and at the same time protecting your eyes from harmful radiations when playing football.

4.12: Football Helmet Visor Inserts

This is visor insert, not an actual visor or eye shield.

Football visor inserts fit behind clear visor or eye shield.

Insert colors range from iridium, chrome, gold, smoke, and red.

Mostly, you need to find the correct insert for your particular visor brand so it can efficiently and appropriately fit.

shoc football visor insert

The good thing about the inserts is that you can comfortably attach and detach them from your football helmet as long as it is the right size.

Chapter 5: Factors to Consider in Helmet Football Visor

I know you need a football helmet visor with superior features.

That is, one that guarantees safety and maintains optical class 1 features.

It is for that reason that I want to take you through various critical factors you must consider when shopping for this accessory.

Let’s start with:

5.1: Optical Clarity

It is true that when you’re selecting an ideal helmet football visor, you have to ensure that it meets the recommended safety standards.

Optical clarity is one important feature that will ensure safety of every football player.

But also, it is essential to understand that it should consider your visibility.

Anyway, let’s get to the bottom line of this issue:

The first thing that you need to check in your visor is the visibility.

After wearing it, check if you can look your peripherals without having to rotate your head.

Clear football helmet visors

This makes you be sure that this tool will serve its purpose correctly without hindering.

You will not strain – all you have is to focus on the game at hand.

When you wear the right helmet football visor that allows for better optical clarity, you protect your face but also enhance your overall productivity.

The bottom line:

Ensure you choose from the different types of visors and choose one with superior optical clarity.

5.2: Impact Resistance

A good football helmet visor must be impact resistant. .

The thing is, when playing football; different forms of impact often arise.

For instance, head-on collision with the rival team members or even falling hard on the ground is common.

impact resistant football visor

In such cases, the helmet football visor can break easily.

In other instances, the effects from UV can also affect the quality of this equipment as well as degrade its structural integrity.

This is the reason why all football helmet visors are treated with anti-resistant substrates.

As I had indicated earlier, it is only polycarbonate material that can withstand high-intensity impact.

It will neither break nor crack; besides, it will maintain its shape.

5.3: Coating Technologies

Do you remember my discussions in chapter 4?

The coating technology plays a significant role in determining the efficiency and durability of a football visor.

Polycarbonate material does not guarantee an optical class 1 surface.

You need to add other coatings such as anti-fog, anti-UV, anti-scratch or hydrophobic coating.

It is these coating technologies that offer a combination performance, thereby improving safety.

But again, remember not all of these technologies may be necessary for your football helmet visor.

So, you need to consult an expert, who will recommend the best technology.

More importantly, the technology must not contravene the set rules of football helmet visor specification.

Also, when integrated appropriately, it should be able to enhance the lifespan of the visor to a considerable extent.

Just in case you want a quick overview of these technologies, I have an infographic here: 11 Great Technologies that can Skyrocket Your Football Visor Business.

5.4: Football Helmet Visor Brands on the Market

There are numerous brands of football helmet visors on the market.

And at times, it can be quite overwhelming to choose an appropriate accessory.

Even if the manufacturing process and technologies are the same, you’ll still find variations in the quality standards.

This can be an overwhelming process for newbies – you may end up not choosing an appropriate football helmet visor.

In this section, I am going to discuss some of the most popular helmet visor brands on the market.

Now, let’s go straight to the main subject of this section:

1. SHOC Football Visors

Even as you focus on choosing a specific brand of football helmet visor, you must pay attention to quality tests and specifications.

With that in mind, let me take you to yet another critical factor to consider when buying a football helmet visor.

Chapter 6: Benefits of Football Helmet Visors

From chapter 1 of this helmet football visor buying guide, I have highlighted quite a number of benefits of this accessory.

Therefore, in this section, I will have only a quick summary of those benefits.

So, let’s go straight to the main subject of this section.

6.1 Football Visor Protects the Eye from Injuries

Generally, the aim of football visors is preventing eye injury when playing.

Football is a type of game that involves push and shoves.

In most cases, you’ll find that players tend to grab each other roughly.

At times they even put their fingers through the face of another place.

The intention at times is to try and harm the opponent’s eyes.

Of course, the aims is to prevent them from seeing properly as the game proceeds or even in the next game.

Football Visor Protects the Eye from Injuries

American football players refer to this act as eye-gouging.

When you wear a helmet football visor, all these will be a thing of the past.

No matter how hard the opponent would try to eye-gouge you, it becomes difficult for them to penetrate if you wear a football visor.

The bottom line:

Polycarbonate football visor will protect your eyes and face from injury during matches.

Thus, it is a-must-have accessory.

6.2 Filters Harmful Light

At times, you can play football in bright sunlight or at night when the stadium floodlights are switched on.

It thus implies that as a player you’ll have no choice but to endure the bright light getting straight into your eyes.

As a result, the player will not focus on the game at hand, but strain a lot.

Definitely, you’ll have to strain because it is not easy playing this kind of high-intensity game in such conditions.

Besides, it is hard to maintain good performance throughout.

And so you’ll find many football players wearing eye black underneath their eyes.

The idea here is to reduce glare from the sun or even floodlights.

Here is where the use of football helmet visors becomes handy.

They are made of several coating technologies that help in filtering and regulating the amount of light that passes through.

In short, the light will no longer be a problem.

6.3: Corrects Vision

Football visors tend to improve player’s vision significantly.

This is always apparent when the ball gets lost in the overhead lights or even the sun.

Prescription football visors are available for athletes with perfect vision.

This allows a player to see properly without the need for glasses, contact lenses or the other corrective lenses.

Unlike glasses, a prescription visor is comparatively difficult to fall off during the cause of rough play.

Also, you can find some visors that improve the color contrast.

Therefore, this will make images become sharper and more accurate on the ground.

Of course, other coating technologies such as anti-fog, anti-UV or anti-scratch also help to maintain optical class 1 surface.

As a result, you can see clearly.

6.4: Tinted Football Visor Hides Players Eyes from the Opponents

You see, in this game, it becomes easy for the opponent to read your moves just by looking at your eyes.

So he/she can determine where you want to pass the ball to and also whether you intend to sprint with the ball.

Wearing football visors thus prevents the opponent from having direct eye contact.

Therefore, it becomes difficult for the opponent to predict your moves.

However, as I had mentioned earlier, there are restrictions when it comes to the use of tinted football visors.

For instance, in country level games, the use of tinted football visor is prohibited.

The opponent must see your eye.

Now, what can you learn here?
