Now available from Safety Mate , ATG MaxiDry LR safety gloves are made from nitrile on a seamless nylon liner with Lycra to ensure a good fit, and feature state-of-the-art non slip grip technology.
MaxiDry LR safety gloves are important, and ideal, for workers in the manufacturing industry for a number of reasons. Firstly, the hands of manufacturing industry workers are regularly exposed to aliphatic hydrocarbons, or oils, which are often recycled and contain carcinogenic ingredients. This exposure to carcinogens may increase the risk of cancer by altering the cellular metabolism, or damaging DNA directly in cells. The nitrile outer on MaxiDry LR safety gloves protect hands from any contact with these poisons.
Secondly, standard safety gloves often lack good grip, requiring workers to exert a disproportionate level of force to grip items they are handling. Over a period of time this increases the risk of carpel tunnel syndrome. The state-of-the-art Griptech "micro-cup" technology on MaxiDry LR safety gloves provides an intense and less fatiguing grip.
Further to this reasong for strong grip on safety gloves is the fact that grip is and should be seen as a fundamental safety feature. By investing in gloves with the appropriate level of grip workers can avoid the need for gloves that contain expensive cut resistance fibers. Good grip on safety gloves ensures less slip, which in turn means fewer accidents.
Finally, workers often struggle to find a lightweight safety glove that is lightweight and able to offer oil grip, chemical protection and comfort all in one. As a result, the majority of workers opt for a chemical resistant safety glove, which provide low comfort and ergonomics, making it difficult and slower to get the job done.
This no longer needs to be the case however, thanks to the introduction of MaxiDry LR safety gloves from ATG. Due to the significant amount of work conducted in the petrochemical, metal fabrication and automotive sectors nowadays, ATG designed a product to provide “controlled performance” in these difficult environments that uses two technology platforms, layered on top of one another.
Via the LiquiTech platform, ATG have ensured increased resistance for the inside of the glove, and on the outside the GripTech “micro-cup” technology platform provides an intense and less fatiguing grip in wet or oily applications.
Key features of ATG MaxiDry LR safety gloves include:
- GripTech “micro-cup” technology providing an intense and less fatiguing grip
- LiquiTech increased resistance to oils and greases
- excellent dexterity and flexibility
- high abrasion level 4
- provides good protection against light chemicals and caustics
- sanisted for antimicrobial protection
- silicone free.
