HeatArmor® 5050 prevents recordable cut injury at aviation plant

Some applications require more protection than what meets the eye, demanding the strongest, toughest, and most resilient safety gloves to handle unpredictable occupational hazards. This was exactly the case for a welder in a large aviation plant. Read how HexArmor’s HeatArmor® 5050 glove prevented a major recordable injury.

The issue

A welder at an aviation plant was working with a piece of steel when the material slipped. As the welder reflexively grabbed hold to prevent the steel from falling onto another employee, the steel dug into the gloves’ palm, cutting the outer shell.

The solution and result

Luckily, the worker was wearing our HeatArmor® 5050, and the glove did its job. Though the glove received a nice cut to the palm, the steel did not penetrate through the cut liner. This caused a minor injury instead of a major recordable.

The HeatArmor® 5050 was purpose-built to handle not only extreme occupational heat hazards but also accidental cuts and punctures on the job.

The 5050 features HeatHide® technology, goatskin leather reinforcements, and an interior Aramid liner to deliver exceptional 360° A6 cut, level 4 puncture, and level 6 abrasion resistance, as well as incredible durability.

Plus, the welder had been wearing this pair of gloves for four months, and not only are they holding up well, but they’ve outlasted the previous competitive glove five times over.
