QUALITY CONSTRUCTION FOR DURABILITY
Having a pair of gloves with maximum protection ratings means nothing if they last a week. HexArmor are committed to manufacturing gloves that not only provide incredible protection, but that last as long as you need them. No more frayed material and ripping. Trust your gloves to work as hard as you do. Please view the image below for a demonstration of what HexArmor do to protect your hands:
What Is Extrication?
Extrication is the often lengthy process involved in the removal of a vehicle from around a person trapped in place during a car crash. Unfortunately incredibly common, extrication is incredibly dangerous due to the nature of the material involved. Wearing the wrong pair of gloves during this process can result in serious injury.
Incredible Level F Cut Resistance
Extrication is a dangerous profession. Jagged and incredibly sharp sheet metal can slice straight through your hand upon contact. A Level F cut protection rating ensures your hands are protected from in excess of an incredible thirty newtons of downward force.
What Does This Actually Mean?
Plain and simple, if you're working with sharp stuff, a Level F cut resistance rating makes all the difference. Where a blade would effortlessly slash right through a pair of ordinary gloves, a Level F cut resistance ensures most blades and sharp edges get lodged between the tight fibres that make up a proper cut-resistant safety glove.
Impact Dissipation Unit
Though cutting is the threat that most people worry about damaging their hands, it is just as important to consider the effect that impact can have. Impact, both accumulative and single contact, can cause serious, long lasting damage. It is often overlooked, however in professions where dense, heavy and hazardous material is being handled, it shouldn't be.
Patented SuperFabric Protection
Serious about heavy-duty protection, SuperFabric was developed in 1996 as a solution for preventing needle and knife incisions. It is the layer that prevents a serrated edge, needle or blade end from breaking through your glove to cause serious injury to your hand.
High Visibility Design
One of these is the high-visibility elastic cuff that has a Velcro closure — making the glove both more comfortable and more secure. HexArmor EXT 4013 Extrication Gloves also have an all-round high-visibility design that is great for emergency workers who may be working in the dark near dangerous areas (e.g. roads) where visibility is a constant issue.
