HexArmor Gloves: Safety Redefined
Thursday, 9 May 2019
Some tasks demand hand protection that goes that one step further; offering not just resistance against needles, thorns, cuts, oil, grease and mud, but technology that improves your performance, productivity and output. In every industry there is a brand that leads the way, a torchbearer that takes risks and leads by example. In the PPE industry, that brand is HexArmor.
Who Are HexArmor?
HexArmor were founded just over a decade ago by a small group of hardworking people. What they wanted to create was unheard of. Within a few years of researching, testing, experimenting and trialling, they had created a glove that used brand new technology that reduced the number of hand injuries in a large waste and recycling company to zero.
Using that first glove as a starting point, that small group of hardworking people quickly expanded, keeping their ethos of working with glove users at the heart of their mission. By working side-by-side with glove users and health and safety managers, the gloves that they produced started to change the outlook of the industry, and they quickly came to dominate large sectors within the PPE market. Every single one of the gloves in HexArmor's armoury today features technology that has been manufactured in cohesion with their harshest critic; the person who actually has to wear the gloves.
Why HexArmor Use Technology Better Than Anyone
If you want to be the best, it means that you have to adapt to changing threats within the industrial workplace. This can include the threats posed by new technology and new jobs, and it means that the technology that you use within your gloves has to represent this change. HexArmor have developed different technology for different threats, ensuring that they can dominate all of the high-risk areas where PPE is required.
SuperFabric is designed to protect against the most hazardous hazards on the market; blades, wires, metal, glass, needles and more. SuperFabric consists of special guard-plates that deflect needle and puncture hazards, which is why HexArmor's needle resistant gloves are among our best selling needle resistant gloves. For our range of HexArmor SuperFabric Gloves, see HexArmor Chrome Series and HexArmor Needle stick.
IR-X Impact Resistance
Among the most advanced impact resistance available, the IR-X Impact Resistant liner from HexArmor features a full impact Exoskeleton that protects every joint and knuckle from blows. It is thick, tall, and can force away sudden impact in order to protect your hands. For excellent impact protection, see HexArmor Rig Lizard.
H2X Waterproof Liner
H2X is technology that can keep your hands warm, keep them safe, and keep them dry when immersed in a bucket of water. Featuring Thinsulate , this two-layer barrier protects your hands from not just water, but chill and wind too. For HexArmor waterproof gloves, see the HexArmor Arctic range.
All of the HexArmor Gloves use different types of grip, with TP-X, TP-X+, Mud Grip and more all offering different levels of grip for different working conditions. Whether it's grip for extreme dirt, extreme oil, extreme rain or just cold and dry, HexArmor ensure that the gloves you are buying will keep your hands grippy.
