How Do Chainsaw Gloves Work?
Chainsaw gloves pack the non-dominant hand with cut-resistant fabric which is capable of "jamming" the belt if contact with the hand is made. These ultra-durable fibres fly out of the glove, clogging the individual mechanisms in the belt, causing the chainsaw to come to an almost instant standstill before serious damage is done to your hand.
Dominant Left Hand Protection
Cutter CW500 Gloves feature 14 layers of state-of-the-art chainsaw specific fabric in the back of the left hand where it's needed most. This allows you to leverage the weight of the chainsaw without having to worry about causing serious, serious injury to yourself or others around you in the event of a drop or accident.
The Perfect Chainsaw Gloves for Winter
Operating a chainsaw is difficult at the best of times. This difficulty is compounded when the threat of sensitivity loss, numbness and freezing cold hands are added to the equation.
Cutter CW500 Winter Chainsaw Gloves feature a thermal lining that prevents all the heat your hands work hard to generate from exiting the glove. This helps you maintain accuracy and dexterity in your fingers for maximum safety whilst you work.
Soft and Comfortable Thermal Lining
The most important aspect of any winter garment is layering. Cutter have developed their winter chainsaw gloves to incorporate an internal fleece lining that works tirelessly in the background to trap and prevent heat exiting through the fabric.
This ensures your hands stay toasty and warm no matter what you're up to or how low the temperature drops!
Reinforced PVC Patches Enhance Protection
Cutter CW500 Chainsaw Gloves further bolster the palm, thumb and fingers with ultra-durable PVC patches to prevent scuffs, scrapes and scratches ruining your hands. This also helps extend the shelf life of your gloves if picking up debris, garden waste, timber and offcuts is all part of your work.
Breathable fabric is super important if odour, perspiration and foul smells are an issue for you. Amara leather is highly breathable, allowing cool air to pass through the fabric and onto the hand, relieving the fabric of nasty odours, smells and sweat.
Elasticated Velcro Wrist Closure
An elasticated wrist refers to the flexible and stretchy material used to bolster comfort in the wrist area of the glove. This not only helps the glove feel more comfortable during application and removal; it also prevents microscopic particles of dirt and dust entering the glove so your hands stay clean, fresh and irritation-free for longer.
What's So Special About Amara Synthetic Leather?
Amara is a synthetic leather compound frequently used in the design and manufacturing of safety gloves because of its durability and scuff-resistance. Much like other synthetic leathers, Amara has the benefit of being cruelty-free, making it an excellent option for vegans and environmentally conscious professionals.
