    Looking at their models.. Try searching for: Uvex S8500
    That claims to be the + model. I believe that then non + model is the S8510.

    And I see I bought the S8510.. Hrmmm...

    http://www.amazon.com/S8500-Uvex-Spe.../dp/B0040C10KI
    From the description:
    "Passes ANSI Z87+ and CSA Z94.3 standards"
    Of course the exact same part # from other sellers doesn't include that description

    However, I'm now thinking that all the bionics face shields meet the ansi spec.. Apparently Sperian is now Honeywell safety so...

    Shows the difference as:
    S8500 - plain
    S8510 - Anti-fog/Hardcoat
    And under the Overview section shows the type as generically "Meets ANSI Z87+ (High Impact) and certified to the requirements of CSA Z94.3 standards".

    So.. presumably the 5810 is a slightly nicer shield and it looks like both models are supposed to be Z78.1+

    Ryan,

    The paperwork with the one I bought a month or two ago didn't claim the plus certification. As I read it they no longer claim any impact rating according to the later z87.1-2010 rating. You may want to go straight to the source for your information. I just checked all over my visor and frame and neither has the marking indicating it is impact rated. Here is where I got what info I have from:
