St. Paul, Minn. – Ergodyne announced today the expansion of their ProFlex® Dorsal Impact-Reducing (DIR) Glove Series to include the ProFlex® 925CPWP Thermal Waterproof Cut, Puncture and Dorsal Impact-Reducing Glove. Providing maximum defense from multiple, competing hazards, Ergodyne’s new glove delivers on protection without sacrificing an ounce of flexibility or dexterity.
“Our DIR Series continues to expand to address the needs and wants of workers in the field,” said Andy Olson, senior product manager, Ergodyne. “They asked for a combination of cut and puncture protection in a thermal, waterproof glove … and that’s what we’ve delivered.”
Following the spring 2012 launch of the popular all-season 925F(x)CP Cut Puncture Resistant Glove, the patented 925CPWP glove combines an all Armortex® palm for Level 3 cut and Level 2 puncture protection with 40g 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation and a Hipora® waterproof, windproof insert liner for warmth in cold, wet applications. Additionally, the glove features molded TPR armor on the knuckles and fingers of the dorsal side of the hand for rugged protection; a hi-vis color scheme for hand visibility; and a contoured neoprene cuff for a snug, comfortable fit.
