Ergodyne Announces New Fire & Rescue Glove With Bloodborne Pathogen Protection
St. Paul, Minn. (April 3, 2014) – Ergodyne has announced today the expansion of their ProFlex® Glove Line to include the ProFlex® 730OD Performance Fire & Rescue Gloves with OutDry® Bloodborne Pathogen Protection. This revolutionary glove utilizes an OutDry® bonded membrane – eliminating the need for an insert and providing protection from water and disease carrying bloodborne pathogens.
“For the past two years, Ergodyne has been the go-to for OutDry® waterproof winter gloves in the safety industry,” said Andy Olson, senior product manager. “After extensive research and testing, we’re excited to expand the use of the OutDry® bonded membrane technology to benefit and protect fire & rescue workers.”
The 730OD with OutDry® is 3rd party tested to ASTM 1670, the standard for synthetic blood penetration, and the membrane passes the ASTM 1671 test for surrogate microbe penetration from harmful disease-causing pathogens. OutDry® technology not only protects workers from harmful fluids, it also provides better dexterity and flexibility while working. And because it’s bonded – not an insert – it will never pull out of the glove. The Armortex® reinforcement zones on the fingers and palm as well as Kevlar® stitching and EVA foam padding on the knuckles work together to provide first-level protection in any situation.
“We are extremely excited to be a partner of such innovation,” said Luca Morlacchi, CEO of OutDry® Technologies srl. “Industrial workers and consumers respect Ergodyne for their commitment to highly technical products that perform in all conditions. With the utilization of OutDry® , wearers gain even more protection and performance.”
Ideal for extrication applications and those who need protection from bloodborne pathogens, the new ProFlex® 730OD Performance Fire & Rescue Gloves with OutDry® are available now at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
