ASSE attendees and ISHN readers award products in three separate PPE categories

ROMEOVILLE, IL, – Magid, a leading manufacturer and supplier of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), was recognized for new product innovation for the 3rd time in the ASSE Safety Attendee Choice and ISHN Reader’s Choice Awards. The products won in the Hi-Viz Hand Protection, Eye/Face Protection and FR Clothing categories.

Magid’s D-ROC® High Visibility Palm Coated Work Gloves (Item #GPD545HV) deliver dependable ANSI level 4 cut protection while the form-fitting, hi-viz shell provides breathability, comfort and dependable protection. The polyurethane palm coating also ensures excellent grip and dexterity.

“We developed this glove to address the growing need for advanced hi-viz solutions with a high level of cut protection,” said Sarah Anderson, Sr. Product Manager, Magid. “It’s an excellent choice for ensuring worker compliance in jobs like metal fabrication, metal handling, appliance and automotive manufacturing, construction and metal stamping.”

Magid Gemstone® Myst® Featherweight Safety Glasses (Item # Y16CFC) are one of the lightest safety glasses on the market, providing high impact ANSI Z87.1-2010 protection. The glasses also include flexible temples and a 9.5 base curve wraparound lens which allows for exceptional comfort and all day wear.

“Magid is always working to create innovative PPE,” said Product Manager Jennifer Walrich. “The Gemstone Myst featherweight safety glasses were designed for superior comfort and solid impact protection. These glasses are so light and comfortable; workers will barely notice they are wearing them.”

Magid AR Defense™ Base Layer Shirts (Item #ARS650) are the newest addition to Magid’s FR protective clothing line. The AR Defense long sleeve shirts comply with recent NFPA 70E standards and provide a higher total system arc rating with fewer layers and less weight. Using a unique blend of fibers, this shirt offers inherent flame resistance along with moisture-wicking properties to keep workers dry even on the most active days.

“Customers looking for comfortable and lightweight, ATPV CAT 2 protection have been thrilled with our AR Defense base layer shirts in the 6.5 oz. weight,” said Product Manager Jennifer Walrich. “This new addition to the Magid FR clothing line helps our customers stay compliant at a great value.”
