    Work gloves

    ProFlex 750 At-Heights Construction Gloves have double-layered palms and fingertips. EVA foam padding on the upper palm, base and middle-digit sections provides comfort for climbing and rope work while maintaining dexterity. Double-needle Kevlar stitching on the palm and fingers offer extended wear and durability, while the reflective binding allows gloves to be easily located at night.

    Glove clips

    Glove Guard and Utility Guard clips are the only ones with a patented safety breakaway design. Made of engineered-grade material that holds its memory, the clips resist flex fatigue and are non-conductive and non-corrosive. Their sleek designs lie close to the body and do not interfere with job activities.

    Cut-resistant gloves

    The Jackson Safety G60 Purple Nitrile Level 3 Cut-Resistant Gloves with Dyneema fiber provide a high level of cut resistance while enhancing dexterity and comfort. A tapered coating on the fingertips increases durability without sacrificing flexibility. The gloves are ideal for use in metal fabrication, glass handling, automotive assembly and other applications that require protection against hand lacerations.

    ForceFlex HV100 gloves are designed with Kevlar-reinforced palm pads with rough texture to improve abrasion and grip in wet or oily conditions.

    The Aegis HP54 is a 10-gauge seamless knit glove composed of high-performance polyethylene nylon and Lycra with Zorb-IT palm coating for a strong grip in all conditions. The fit and feel of this glove rivals thinner, lighter-weight products, but the 10-gauge construction adds more cut protection and durability to the wearer.
