Q-Safe, a comprehensive range of personal protective equipment (PPE), which is exclusively available from Buck & Hickman in the UK, has launched a new innovative range of gloves ideal for those working within the aerospace manufacturing industry, not only offering manufacturers superior hand protection, but benefiting from a variety of enhanced functionality and user benefits.
The new range, developed using Dyneema® technology, a high modulus polyethylene (HMPE) fibre which is cut resistant, includes gloves with a level 3, and level 5 cut protection - the highest level of protection according to EN 388.
In addition to their protective qualities, Q-Safe Dyneema® hand protection also has multiple functional benefits aimed at making aerospace engineers’ roles easier - including an ultra-lightweight design and enhanced dexterity, and the ability to radiate heat away from users’ hands, ensuring all-day comfort. What’s more, the gloves have been certified ‘vend-ready’ and are available through Buck & Hickman’s industrial vending service, InvendTM.
Nadine Sherwood, PPE Product Manager of Buck & Hickman, explained: “We’re really excited about the launch of the Q-Safe Dyneema® hand protection and pleased to be making the gloves available to our customers in the aerospace market. With changes to EN388 coming into force this year, our customers can rest assured the gloves have undergone the most rigorous testing and retain either a level 3 or level 5 cut rating. As well as being extremely cut resistant, the gloves have been designed with the user in mind, providing optimum comfort and movability.
“Accounting for a third of workplace accidents, hand injuries can be life changing which is why it’s so important organisations make the necessary provisions to appropriately protect their workers, by offering access to the correct PPE. Aerospace manufacturers can ensure their employees are accessing the correct level of protection for their particular role through InvendTM,the industrial vending service available from Buck & Hickman, which offers a controlled access function and a complete audit trail for health & safety managers.”
