The Crantock model is made from 100% recycled polypropylene trawl nets, and paired with polarised mineral-glass lenses, offering complete sustainability, optical performance and ultimate UVA/UVB 400 protection. The mid-sized frame suits a broad range of faces, both male and female.

Recycled frames

The Italian-made Crantock frames contain 0% virgin plastics, 100% recycled fishing nets that were collected from European waters through end-of-life amnesty schemes and beach and dive-based ghost net recoveries. The Crantock frame is made from green polypropylene trawl nets – the most abundant form of net found on UK beaches. The frames feature five barrel hinges for maximum durability. Frames come in a dark grey matte, are 100% recycled and each pair has unique, subtle flecked patterns which allude to their origin. The laser logos reveal the green pigment from the original fishing nets.

Polarised Mineral Glass

The Crantock frames have been paired with extremely high quality, polarised, grey-green tint glass lenses. Whilst most of Waterhaul’s customers adopt recycled frames, the glass lenses are what sets the experience of wearing Waterhaul sunglasses truly apart and maintains customer advocacy. They stand by glass for three key reasons;

Optical glass is the clearest lens-medium through which we can observe the world – no other lens material matches its optical clarity. The optical performance of a lens can be measured by its ‘Abbe Value’ – the degree to which light is dispersed when entering a lens. Mineral glass has an Abbe Value of 59, the highest of any optical lens material. Standard plastic lenses, like polycarbonate, have a value of 32. This clarity ensures the clearest possible perception of details, colours and contrasts.

Exceptional scratch-resistance. The ‘Mohs hardness scale’ is a measure of the resistance of a material to scratching, expressed on a 1 – 10 scale (10 being diamond). Scratches can only occur from contact with materials with a higher Mohs value. Mineral glass has a Mohs value of 6.0. In comparison, conventional plastic lens materials such as CR39 and polycarbonate have Mohs values ranging from 3.0 – 3.2.

Sustainability. Glass is a natural material that can be infinitely recycled in any glass-recycling collection.

Waterhaul’s Italian-made glass lenses offer full spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The lenses are fully polarised, eliminating glare from reflective surfaces of water, snow and wet roads.
