SuperFabric® Cut - Exceeding Industry Standards for Cut-Resistance
HexArmor® products, made with SuperFabric® brand materials, offer industry leading cut-resistance, exceeding both ISEA/ANSI and CE/EN388 Level 5 cut-resistance. Performance is enhanced through the configuration of tiny guard plates, which provide resistance to lacerations and slashes like no other material on the market.
Exceeds ISEA/ANSI (ASTM F1790-05) and CE (EN388) Level 5
Shielding effect keeps sharp cut hazards (metal, blades, glass) from slipping between fibers and causing cut injuries
Won't snag or abrade like typical fiber-based, cut-resistant gloves
Typical cut-resistant gloves are made with a performance fiber (Kevlar®, Dyneema®, Spectra®) or blend of cut-resistant performance fiber. While these gloves offer some levels of cut-resistance, they lack the ability to prevent hazards from puncturing or penetrating the skin surface. When a jagged piece of metal, wire, glass, or splinter comes up against a cut-resistant glove fiber, it will find a "window" between the fiber rows and cause a laceration.
At HexArmor®, our cut-resistant gloves offer more than just protection from straight edge cut hazards. We realize there are variables (force, angle, application) that come into play and can affect how a cut hazard will contact the user. SuperFabric® brand material is an ideal solution for cut-resistant gloves, as it protects from both straight edged cuts and variable situations.
**NOTE... If you have measured your hand correctly as shown above you should have no issues with sizing.
The gloves however will be quite firm to put on especially when new.
Work your hands into the gloves & fingers fully into the tips remembering they will give a little.
Wearing these gloves offer you a vastly improved chance of minimising or avoiding injury in many situations where otherwise a serious injury/laceration may have have resulted. However the gloves do not make you immune or impervious to sustaining an injury with the unpredictable nature of hazards on a job site.
Personal protective equipment is not a substitute for effective engineering, administrative controls, safe work practices, or other control measures.
Q. Should cut-resistant gloves be used to protect one from cuts from powered/mechanical equipment like powered saws and drills?
A. Most all manufacturers of cut-resistant gloves will not suggest the use of cut-resistant gloves for protection against powered devices. Gloves are typically tested for use with non-powered blades and sharps only.
The use of a glove with powered equipment could potentially harm an individual. If the moving blade catches the glove, it could result in a person getting pulled into moving machinery. Moving machine parts have the potential for causing severe workplace injuries
