In the wind industry, protection against cuts, accidental impacts, and weather must all be considered when choosing protective gloves, since some manufacturing or construction sites present multiple hazards. Comfort is also a concern that is all too often the last consideration, but a comfortable glove could make the difference between compliance and disaster.
Safety Today’s new Brass Knuckle SmartShell BKCR4499 gloves are a best-in-class solution, providing high levels of cross-functional protection and a glove construction that uses the company’s “Fit, Form, and Function” standard.
The BKCR4499 begins with a machine-knit, ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene shell that offers ANSI cut-level 4 protection, which has a strength-to-weight ratio that’s eight to 15 times higher than steel. The glove’s layered construction is designed to conform to the natural contours of the hand and includes flex points in the fingers, wrist, and palm. This helps to ensure maximum comfort and increase the likelihood workers will comply and wear the gloves.
Thermoplastic rubber padding is sonically welded to the back of the glove and offers protection from contusions, smash injuries, punctures, and object strikes, with pinch protection extending to each fingertip. The sandy finish of the black nitrile-palm coating offers excellent wet-grip and slip resistance, as well as abrasion resistance.
For long-lasting durability, the BKCR4499 is double-stitched in high-wear areas including along the fingertips, index finger, and palm. Its flexibility and top-rated ergonomic design make this glove one of the most wearable in its class. The bright lime green shell color meets the requirements of American National Standard (ANSI/ISEA 107-2010) for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear Devices.
“We worked hard to engineer a glove that could combine impact protection, cut protection, and a perfect fit for use in a variety of industries,” said Tony Spearing, VP of Safety Today. “It really is a next-generation type of glove. There’s not a wearer who doesn’t become immediately impressed.”
