These gloves are available in sizes ranging from extra-small (6) to double extra-large (11). The manufacturer recommends you order a smaller size than your normal glove size since these were designed on a bigger template. Please select the size needed in the field located above.
This impact protection glove is made of a sponge-like material on the back of the hand and the thumb, a black cowhide leather palm and a spandex with terry cloth back. The Spandex and terry cloth blend offers maximum comfort and dexterity. Gel paddings are lodged in the palm and index finger to protect from shock and impact. This glove is provided with an adjustable Velcro® closure at the wrist to keep in place. The manufacturer also claims that the open back ensures cool comfort. At last, the half finger style comes in quite handy whenever one needs the tactile feedback and mobility that only free fingers provide. However, these gloves are not certified anti-vibration according to the ISO 10819 standard as they do not cover the entire hand.
The grain, in this case, cowgrain, comes from the slitting of thicker hides in two sheets: the surface of the skin, the finest part known as ‘full grain’ is the real leather as opposed to the subsurface, known as split-leather. Cowgrain is mainly the most popular leather on the market since cowhide strikes a good balance of durability, dexterity, abrasion resistance, and comfort besides being quite cost-efficient.
Spandex also known as elastane is a synthetic fiber containing at least 85% of polyurethane is also known for its exceptional elasticity. Indeed, Spandex can extend to 600% its original length before beginning to show signs of tearing. It also exhibits the ability to recover its original form after being stretched and dries at a blistering speed which is quite convenient while working.
This type of glove is recommended to workers dealing with tools such as hammers, hammer drills and other impact inducing machines. This glove protects from abrasion and impacts which make it an excellent candidate to protect workers from hand-held or hand guided power tools.
Of course, this glove offers no sure protection against frostbites, cuts, wear, tear and puncture so mechanical risks should not be overlooked. This glove moreover helps absorb and dampen impacts, but can’t possibly prevent all hazards nor avoid the development of occupational diseases due to repetitive work.
Maintenance and service life:
It is not recommended to wash this glove since water and soap tend to rob leather of its natural oils which makes it stiffen and become brittle. If the nature of your work requires that you wash them, we recommend that you dry clean them.
