St. Paul, Minn. (June 26, 2013) – Ergodyne has announced today the expansion of their ProFlex® Glove Line to include the ProFlex® 920 Nitrile-Dipped Dorsal Impact-Reducing (DIR) Glove, available July 22, 2013. The new 920 DIR Glove offers patent-pending dorsal impact protection with the exceptional grip, flexibility, and dexterity of a foam nitrile-dipped seamless knit glove.

“Workers across the globe, especially those in oil and gas and other heavy industries, have come to rely on our patented DIR gloves to protect their hands from impact injuries,” said Andy Olson, senior product manager, Ergodyne. “To round out our offering, we’ve combined the high level of protection found in our ProFlex® DIR Series with the many inherent benefits of a foam nitrile-dipped palm to create a game-changing glove.”

One of the many features of a foam nitrile-dipped palm is the ability to displace fluids such as grease and oil. Not only does the 920 DIR Glove provide grip in the slipperiest conditions, the glove also delivers superior impact protection with molded rubber armor sewn (not sonic welded) from the base of the hand to the fingertip for extended wear and durability. Additionally, the seamlessly knit, cotton construction provides breathable comfort and the hi-vis color scheme promotes hand awareness/allows for hand signaling.

“We’ve made major strides in reducing hand impact injuries since the launch of our first DIR series glove in 2009,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. “Combining this protection with the gripping power of foam nitrile reflects our commitment to continual innovation and improvement in this category.”

Ideal for industries where back of the hand injuries and grip are a concern, the new ProFlex® 920 Nitrile-Dipped Dorsal Impact-Reducing Gloves are available July 22, 2013 at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.
