St. Paul, Minn. (Jan. 18, 2017) – Ergodyne announced today that it has added hi-vis color options to best-selling models in its ProFlex® Trades Gloves Series. The 710 Hi-Vis Heavy-Duty Utility Gloves and the 812 Hi-Vis Utility Gloves provide the tried-and-true protection of the Trades Series while also improving a worker’s visibility and conspicuity.

“Like all Trades Gloves, the primary purpose of these is hand protection,” said Andy Olson, product director, Ergodyne. “But incorporating hi-vis lime options for workers who also want their gloves to improve their visibility makes these new gloves a dual-threat.”

Besides boosting worker conspicuity, adding hi-vis to a hand protection program helps hand visibility and promotes a culture of hand safety awareness.

The patent-pending 710 Hi-Vis Heavy-Duty Utility Gloves feature a neoprene knuckle pad, hi-vis hex stretch poly knit body with reflective accents, and hi-vis orange Tena-Grip™ in the palm, fingertips and thumb saddle for better abrasion-resistance and grip.

The patent-pending 812 Hi-Vis Utility Gloves boast a durable synthetic leather palm, breathable hi-vis poly mesh, and a reinforced thumb saddle wear area.

“Led by the new Trades Series Gloves launch in April, the ProFlex® Line took a dramatic step forward in design, function and technology in 2016,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. “Making hi-vis versions of our staple models only adds to this series’ truly bright future.”
