Engineered to Endure
Impact-resistant gloves have revolutionised hand protection in the oil and gas and heavy engineering industries where injuries from impacts, crushes and pinches are common-place.
Directly-injected Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR) impact shields on the back of these gloves add continuous protection from fingertip to wrist and can flex with hand movement to aid dexterity. The TPR shields absorb the blunt force of impacts and can give the wearer the crucial seconds to remove their hand from the glove when a heavy impact occurs.
Single-piece palms, hidden seams, smooth internal stitching and expert seam finishing are just some of the details that feature within the Skytec range to make a real difference.
Importance of Grip
Workers that require impact protection often require powerful grip performance too. Globus impact gloves feature highly-durable palms that resist oil, water and petrochemicals and are stitched with Kevlar® to deliver heightened gripping power in extreme handling environments.
Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR) shields help protect against impact injuries and provide the wearer additional time to pull their hand out of their glove should it be caught in machinery.VIEW GLOVES
Skid-X Grip® is a material used in the construction of several ‘Cestus by Skytec’ impact gloves. It maximises grip control on slick and dry surfaces while remaining supple and oil-resistant. Skid-X’s flexibility allows for more surface-to-material contact which increases friction and results in stronger grip control.
