One company is so concerned about their sunglass frames coming apart that they do a sunglasses frame twist test on every 50th pair of sunglasses they manufacture! That company is Randolph Engineering, Inc. of Randolph, MA, and they are known for manufacturing high quality sunglasses, prescription frames and shooting glasses, all of which have acquired a loyal following of customers and collectors. Since I have represented Randolph Engineering I have had a lot of interesting conversations with customers who are very pleased with the quality, performance and durability of Randolph Engineering sunglasses and shooting glasses, each of whom have provided excellent testimonials about their experiences with the product. Over the years I have had very few sunglasses returned to me, and usually only because they did not like the look on their face, not because of the quality of the product itself! I Twist A Sunglasses Frame I purchased a matte black Randolph Engineering Aviator sunglasses frame and subjected it to a sunglasses frame twist test just to see if their claim of sunglasses frame integrity and their lifetime guarantee would hold up to an actual test by me. I wasn't disappointed! I twisted the frame as hard as I could and the solder joints didn't separate and the frame, albeit twisted, remained intact despite my best efforts. Sunglasses Frame Twist Test Video Here is a video of me twisting the sunglasses frame and you can see the results for yourself: [fvplayer src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/Aviator-Sunglasses/Sunglasses_Frame_Twist_Test.mp4" width="640" height="360" splash="https://aviator-sunglasses.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Aviator_Sunglasses_Frame_Twist_Test.jpg"] Â My Son Gave Me The Idea One summer while on vacation in Cape Cod one of my sons and I visited the Randolph Engineering factory, and while I talked business with the owner and marketing manager my son took a tour of the plant. During that tour the employee conducting his tour took a frame and twisted in front of him much to his surprise! My son assured me the frame didn't separate, but being a father and somewhat skeptical to boot, I just had to try it for myself. I wasn't disappointed! The frame remained intact despite my best efforts and convinced me that Randolph Engineering will rarely have to worry about fulfilling their lifetime frame solder joint warranty at all. Randolph Engineering Sunglasses There is no doubt in my mind but that any sunglasses or shooting glasses you purchase from Randolph Engineering will stay intact no matter what you do to them; the Randolph Engineering sunglasses frame twist test guarantees that! Now what you do with a twisted pair of sunglasses frames I have no idea, but at least if they are Randolph Engineering sunglasses frames you can send them in and have them repaired under their lifetime warranty. I invite you to navigate to this page: Randolph Engineering Sunglasses and check out the many different styles of sunglasses offered by Randolph Engineering where I am sure you will find a pair that will not only please you, but pass the sunglasses frame twist test!
