Safety Today Introduces a Cross-Functional Protective Glove With the Highest
Wearability Rating in Its Class
glove — ANSI cut level 4 protection
November 11, 2015—In many
industries, impact protection, cut protection, and worker comfort must all be
considered when choosing protective gloves, since some applications or job
sites present multiple hazards. Comfort — too often the last consideration — could
make the difference between compliance and disaster. Safety Today’s new Brass
Knuckle® SmartShell™ BKCR4499 gloves are a best-in-class solution,
providing high levels of cross-functional protection and a glove construction
that utilizes the company’s Fit, Form, and Function™ standard.
The BKCR4499 begins with a machine-knit,
ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene shell that offers ANSI cut level 4
protection, which has a strength-to-weight ratio that’s 8 to 15 times higher
than steel. The glove’s layered construction is designed to conform to the
natural contours of the hand and includes flex points in the fingers, wrist and
palm, helping to ensure maximum comfort and increase compliance. Thermoplastic rubber
padding is sonically welded to the back of the glove
and offers protection from contusions, smash injuries, punctures, and object
strikes, with pinch protection extending to each fingertip. The sandy finish of
the black nitrile palm coating offers excellent wet grip and slip resistance along
with abrasion resistance.
For long-lasting durability, the BKCR4499 is
double-stitched in high wear areas such as the fingertips, index finger, and
palm. Its excellent flexibility and top-rated ergonomic design make this glove
one of the most wearable in its class. The bright lime green shell color meets the
requirements of American National Standard (ANSI/ISEA 107-2010) for
High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear Devices.
Said Tony Spearing, vice president of Safety
Today, “We worked hard to engineer a glove that could combine impact
protection, cut protection, and a perfect fit for use in a variety of
industries. It really is a next-generation type of glove. There’s not a wearer
who doesn’t become immediately impressed.”
The BKCR4499 is recommended for assembly, agriculture,
construction, forestry and logging, heavy equipment, machine operation,
manufacturing, oil and gas and other petro-based refining, mining, rigging, and
other heavy-duty work environments.
