Laser Safety Apps for Apple Devices by LVR Limited


* iOS 11 - Laser Safety Apps update *

iOS 11 marks a big change in the way that apps run on Apple devices. Any machines running the latest version of iOS will no longer support older 32bit apps. This affects ~180,000 apps in the App Store. We are currently working on major updates to all our laser safety apps, which will add many new features, and make them iOS 11 compatible. These will be released in the coming weeks.

Laser Safety Apps for Apple Devices

LVR are pleased to announce the release of the world’s first Laser Safety App for Apple mobile devices. For the first time ever, anyone using an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, can quickly and conveniently determine the safe exposure distance for visible laser beams. Furthermore, the Laser Hazard Distance App is available free of charge in the App Store for users of iTunes.

These Apps are the first in a series of Safety Apps that are released by LVR designed specifically for Apple devices. The fully featured safety apps provide anyone working with lasers in an entertainment or industrial environment, the ability to perform complex calculations and access critical laser safety information at a touch.

The Apps have been developed in-house as a result of combining LVR’s laser safety and optical expertise with programming capabilities, understanding the needs of users wanting to access these tools in a convenient and easy to use manner.

There are currently 3 Apps to choose from:



Laser Hazard Distance

Laser Hazard Distance is an easy to use laser safety calculator that can be used to help determine the safe viewing distance for direct exposure to visible laser beams (400nm to 700nm). The energy in a laser beam becomes less harmful the further along the beam the light travels, eventually reaching a point where the risk is low. Laser Hazard Distance can be used to help determine this distance which is known as the Nominal Ocular Hazard Distance (NOHD). more....


Laser Show Safety

Laser Show Safety allows the exposure safety of a wide range of laser effects to be checked against safe exposure limits. Specify laser output powers from 100mW through to 50W, over a range of different beam characteristics. Select the distance the laser will be projecting over and exposure duration. The laser hazard checker will then calculate the exposure and any hazard posed at the specified distance. more....


Laser Safety

Laser Safety is a handy reference tool detailing the hazard classifications for laser products and providing important definitions for those working with laser safety. The App also contains visibility tool that can be used to help determine the apparent brightness of laser beams based on their wavelength. more...

Apps are Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad; and Requires iOS3 or later. If you have an ANDROID device, please click here.

Important Safety Note:
Direct exposure to laser light can be harmful to eyesight and normally care should be taken to avoid doing so, especially if the user has little experience in assessing the risk. Laser Show Safety App is provided as tool to aid those competent in assessing laser exposure risk, and should be used alongside other assessment methodologies, not as a substitute.
