Our goal– to put Canada at the top
of the list of countries producing the best frames
We see a “Made in Canada” label as a badge of honour one we’re proud to contribute to and want others to know about. If you support the Made-in-Canada movement, we invite you to look into our brand N49° Eyewear.
The name N49° Eyewear comes from the 49th parallel
Not only is N49° Eyewear Canadian brand and produced in Canada, it also has each model named after Canadian towns, places or cities, reflecting the diversity of the inhabitants and range from sophisticated urban locales to more laid-back municipalities. As each city has its own unique personality, N49° Eyewear offers something for every type of wear to explore. We've carefully selected the names for our models of towns, places or cities because each one features something spectacular that you can't find anywhere else in the country — or possibly even the world.
Our peculiarities in manufacturing
Using the latest CAD-CAM software
and technology allows us to optimize
and ensure the highest accuracy and symmetry
Our new feature allows you to choose ChangeFit metal nose pads instead of the classic acetate ones. Each frame comes with two different sizes of nose pads
Productionof the frames
on 5-axis milling equipment
Unique CNC technology to make complete temples on one machine. Milling and core shooting are done at the same time, whic makes the temples very accurate
True Canadian history
For many years, we are have wanted to bring to market something new and different and solve an industry dilemma:
A designer's creation is not always what an engineer can produce.
What an engineer produces will not necessarily look good to the designer.
What the designer and the engineer produce, may not be what an optician actually needs!
Years of research and development have been invested into a cutting-edge production line running on an amazing level of 5-axis technology. Producing a level of quality not previously seen in the market.
All of this would not be possible without our team
The company’s founders are professionals who are experts in their industries. Our engineer has multiple degrees and in-depth knowledge of many types of production, engineering and CNC machining. His professional biography includes work on nuclear and hydropower plants, and in Aerospace Engineering.
