Flame-resistant gloves aid oil/gas workers
Nov 1, 2012 12:00 PM
Global upstream oil and gas capital and operating spending is expected to reach unprecedented heights from 2012-2016, due in large part to a burgeoning North American industry.
To help protect upstream oil and gas workers from catastrophic events such as flash fires, as well as daily concerns of impact and abrasion, Ansel introduces ActivArmr flame-resistant 97-200 gloves.
Designed for use from the rig floor to production services, ActivArmr 97-200 gloves maximize impact protection and flame resistance (NFPA 2112) without compromising comfort and dexterity.
These gloves are designed with an exclusive flame-resistant fabric and meet the NFPA 2112 Flame Resistant Work Wear Standard. To protect workers against injuries and impact, the gloves feature a proprietary bumper formulation that covers the knuckles and an easy don/doff safety cuff for quick release in case of an accident.
ActivArmr 97-200 is more than three times more durable than other gloves, as tested during in-house durability trials. The gloves are constructed with palm padding, Hi Viz fabric with a contrasting palm, Kevlar stitching, and a digital goatskin leather palm providing resistance from cuts (ANSI 2), abrasions (ANSI 4), punctures (ANSI 2), and tears.
