HexArmor 9016 SMALL Flexible Work Gloves
HexArmor 9016 Flexible Industrial Gloves Foam Nitrile LVL5 Cut Resist Palm - Washable
Size 7: SMALL 19-20cm
Family: 9000 Series™
The versatile 9000 Series™ offers a line of palm-coated knit gloves, supplemented with SuperFabric® brand materials, and purpose-built for a variety of industrial applications. An ANSI Level 5 cut-resistant interior palm protects users from lacerations and industrial punctures, while a fiber-blend shell offers differing levels of cut protection, flexibility, and dexterity. Each product in the 9000 Series™ features a unique palm dip, maintaining the highest grip in varying conditions, while increasing abrasion resistance and extending product life.
- SuperFabric® brand material palm provides ISEA Level 5 cut resistance and maintains the highest level of protection available in the industry (interior layer)
- Shell is comprised of a high-performance polyethylene and glass fiber blend, offering top-level flexibility and comfort with Level 4 cut protection on the back of hand
- Foam nitrile palm dip increases snag and abrasion resistance, and provides exceptional grip for heavy oil and wet situations
- Machine washable
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
