Impact

The danger of falling rock and other objects is ever-present throughout the entire mining industry.  Although hand PPE should be the last line of defense against this hazard, HexArmor® still took particular care to equip our gloves with the safest impact resistance systems.  Our proprietary IR-X® Impact Exoskeleton™ covers the entire back of hand, the including the knuckles and fingers, where many competing protective gloves fail to provide coverage.

Super Fabric® Cut/Abrasion

It comes as no surprise that lacerations are the most common hand injury among all mining employees.  Rough or sharp edges at the worksite are prevalent and difficult to avoid.  Additionally, with the consistent use of hand tools comes the danger of abrasion and abrasive injuries as well.  SuperFabric® brand materials provide the highest level of cut-resistance available in the market, and TP-X® technologies, developed by HexArmor®, offer additional grip and abrasion resistance.  These features are what make HexArmor® gloves the safest and most reliable in the industry today.

Dexterity

Far too often safety is traded out for dexterity, and workers frequently remove hand PPE to accomplish a challenging task.  HexArmor® is proud to offer the dexterity needed to complete these jobs without sacrificing our standards of safety.  Our proprietary technologies have been engineered to allow the highest range of motion, so mine workers can tackle any job while keeping their hands safe.

Conveyor Belt Maintenance: Heavy Duty Chaps

Hexarmor® Engineers a World of PPE Solutions for Global Mining and Maintenance Operations

Mining is a global enterprise that supplies the precious and base metals that drive, power, and build the world’s largest industries. These mining operations can be divided into three basic types: underground mining, open pit mining, and surface mining. While the methods of mining and products that are mined in each operation may differ, production operations and the hazards of maintaining production are relatively the same.

Conveyor Belt Splicing: One of Many Hazardous Mining Maintenance Tasks

Engineering the right type of PPE for mine workers and maintenance crews is critical in keeping ores and base metals moving efficiently and productively around the world. In almost all mining operations, high capacity industrial belt conveyors are used to transport ores throughout the mine or production facility. The belts in these conveyors are subjected to tons of rough ores and metals each day, and continually require maintenance to splice frayed belt pieces back together. Splicing is hazardous work for maintenance crews: one inch thick belts (sometimes constructed with fiber and steel) are sliced with two-handed box cutters before being spliced back together with steel staples. Maintenance crews are often positioned on their knees during these dangerous cutting operations and must pull knife blades directly toward them - not the most ideal work environment. Recordable injuries from deep punctures and lacerations are often serious - and in some cases, life-threatening.

HexArmor® Engineered a New Level of Protection Against Punctures and Lacerations with the Development of a Dedicated Conveyor Belt Chap

HexArmor® designers and engineers answered the call of a major mining company that had been experiencing a high level of recordable injuries (punctures and lacerations) in its belt conveyor splicing operations. After conducting an onsite review of the company’s maintenance operations, and working directly with the company’s safety committee, HexArmor® engineered a conveyor belt chap designed to deflect the cutting blades and knives used in belt splicing maintenance. The result: belt conveyor maintenance and installation injuries were completely eliminated after the introduction of the HexArmor® chap.
