Safe-Guard Optics Packaging Containers

Safe-Guard designs and manufactures thermoformed PET-G optics packaging containers for the full range of today's optical lenses, filters, and mirrors. Our unique, slip-fit, low outgassing optics containers are the industry standard for value and performance. Designed to contact optics on only the bevels, these versatile containers eliminate the need for lens paper and foam liners, and greatly reduce the opportunity for handling-generated surface degradation.

Research and Development

Teaming with leading optics engineers since 1975, Safe-Guard developed the original PET-G optics packaging container. The key innovations that resulted:

  • Made from low outgassing, NASA-tested, and Eastman Chemical-developed PET-G material.
  • Sensitive optic surfaces never come in contact with packaging - optics are suspended by bevels only, while outer packaging provides superior protection during shipping and handling.
  • Unlike conventional packaging, Safe-Guard Optics Packaging Containers are suitable for use under the most rigorous clean room standards.


  • Stack easily for handling, storage, shipping, and in-plant processes.
  • Superior crush protection because it is made from a flexible material for shock and impact absorption, and protects optics during all phases of manufacturing.
  • Holds optics on the bevels only, while allowing for easy loading and removal.
  • Made from low outgassing, translucent PET-G which allows for quick visual contents checks and is also suitable for use under the most rigorous clean room standards.
  • Used by leading optical manufacturers for over 25 years.
  • Designed in accordance with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories' Small Optics Summit Protocol of 1998
