St. Paul, Minn. (Feb. 18, 2019) – With their black-on-black color scheme, the two newcomers to Ergodyne’s line of ProFlex® Work Gloves look every bit as ready to tangle with Gotham City’s criminal underworld as they do the hazards of your average everyday jobsite.
Featuring exceptional levels of comfort, precision and protection, the stealthy new ProFlex® 710BLK and 812BLK Black Tactical Gloves bring a stylistic edge to the workday or weekend for mechanics, construction workers, military/law enforcement officers, shooting sports enthusiasts, motorcyclists and more.
Additionally, the gloves’ touchscreen friendly thumbs and index fingers let wearers tap, type and text without removing their gloves.
“Obviously, anytime a worker has to remove their gloves, that increases the chance for injury,” said Chris Cota, senior product manager, Ergodyne. “And more and more, mobile devices are becoming an important tool on the job… so it only makes sense to create gloves that play nice with touchscreen technology”.
In addition to touchscreen compatibility, both new gloves feature materials and other considerations to improve comfort, fit and performance.
Constructed to meet EN 388: 3132 X standards, the 710BLK features reinforced neoprene knuckle pads, Tena-Grip™ padded palms to grip dry and oily surfaces and resilient, easy-breathing hex-stretch knit construction.
The 812BLK meets EN 388: 2121 X standards and makes use of a stretchy, breathable polymesh construction for all-day comfort and high levels of dexterity.
According the Center for Disease Control (CDC), work-related hand injuries account for over a million emergency room visits every year. In 70% of those cases, workers were not wearing gloves for reasons ranging from hand protection being too hot, bulky or it lessened their grip on the task at hand.
