St. Paul, Minn. (September 11, 2014) – Ergodyne announced today the launch of their third knit dipped Dorsal Impact-Reducing (DIR) Glove: the ProFlex® 922CR Cut Resistant Nitrile-Dipped DIR Gloves. The new 922CR offers the same patent-pending dorsal protection, grip, flexibility, and dexterity as the popular 920 and 921 DIR gloves while also delivering EN Level 5 cut protection and Level 3 puncture protection from rugged HPPE seamless knit construction.

“Different applications and tasks have varying and often competing hazards,” said Andy Olson, senior product manager, Ergodyne. “Our new 922CR combines Level 5 cut protection with patent-pending DIR protection and tenacious gripping ability… This glove will stand up in the toughest workzones, no question.”

The 922CR features an HPPE seamless knit shell for high cut and slash protection and superior durability. Sewn-on (not glued) TPR armor ensures lasting protection in the harshest applications. The sandy foam nitrile-dipped palm not only provides exceptional grip in water, grease, and oil, it also absorbs and displaces fluids for great gripping power. This kind of durability and protection, however, doesn’t equate to wearing an oven mitt – the 922CR is thin and flexible for maximum dexterity and comfort while working.

“Workers love the flexibility and touch control provided by a knit dipped glove design which is why we’ve launched three in just under a year,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. “Building on the success of our all-season 920 and thermal 921, the 922CR is great for workers who need extra cut protection when impact hazards are part and parcel to the job.”

Ideal for industries where back of the hand injuries and grip are a concern, the new ProFlex® 922CR Cut Resistant Nitrile-Dipped DIR Gloves are available now at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
