Each construction trade is different and so are the hand protection needs of professionals in the field. Ansell, the world leader in hand protection, is now introducing a line of gloves designed specifically for the unique needs of construction trades – ActivArmr™ Jobsite Gear.
The glove line provides an optimal balance of protection, dexterity and comfort never before seen in construction gloves. Through extensive research on job sites, users told Ansell what they needed in a glove. Their feedback helped drive the unique feature combinations for each trade-specific glove.
The ActivArmr Jobsite Gear line is currently made up of four products, with gloves for additional trades under development.
The ActivArmr Electrician glove delivers breathable, second-skin dexterity while providing protection against wire punctures, cuts and abrasions.
The ActivArmr Plumber glove gives professionals the ability to slide materials through their hands while providing advanced fingertip grip and the combination of protection, comfort and durability.
The ActivArmr HVAC glove offers superior cut protection, enhanced grip and advanced dexterity for working with snips, screws and sheet metal.
The ActivArmr Carpenter glove offers superior grip, advanced protection, breathable second-skin dexterity and all-day wear comfort for working wood, nails and power tools.
“Construction workers face challenging hand protection risks every day, “ said Sean Sweeney, Senior Director of Global Business Development. “We’re excited to be delivering products that trades people can rely on to do their jobs safely and precisely.”
He continued, “We spent months on job sites learning about what exact features workers needed in their hand protection. These ActivArmr gloves deliver.”
