Impact Resistant Gloves
Hand and finger injuries often lead to the industry’s recordable incidence rates every year. Instances of crushes, fractures, dislocations and amputations represent a significant number of serious hand finger injuries. These typically are the result of impact and pinch points hazards such as from handling/positioning heavy equipment, slipped tools like hammers and ill-fitting wrenches, closing of hatches, missing finger guards etc.

These resulted in impact resistant gloves with significantly improved back of hand impact protection, better dexterity, enhanced comfort, more abrasion resistance, longer glove lifespan and higher cut level protection.
