Industrial Puncture Protection from a Variety of Hazards

HexArmor® gloves, arm, and body protection, made with SuperFabric® brand materials, are engineered to deflect and block industrial puncture hazards by limiting the space between the guard plates. Our puncture-resistance is unique because it stops a variety of industrial puncture hazards, while other technologies only perform well in test environments.

  • Guard plate configurations allow industry leading puncture protection from nails, slivers, and wires
  • Spacing between guard plates provides needed flexibility without sacrificing performance
  • Punctures are deflected, blocked by SuperFabric® brand material guard plates

Due to inherent construction, conventional materials such as cotton, leather, aramids, and nylon are unable to stop sharp objects from penetrating through the material. You may see products with a high CE puncture rating, which tests with a blunt force probe. We do not recommend using this method for industrial puncture-resistance, as industrial punctures usually have cutting edges and tips, not blunt tips.

HexArmor® puncture-resistant gloves, arm, and body protection were engineered to deflect and block sharp industrial punctures. We have solutions for puncture hazards as thick as a wood splinter, and as fine as a single wire strand from a steel braided cable. HexArmor® offers real industrial puncture protection – we know because our end users tell us that we have saved them from thousands of puncture injuries.
