QME 2014 Preview: Heavy duty protective gloves

Performance on Hand will be introducing the new Bollwerk rCat heavy duty hand protection gloves on its stand at the Queensland Mining and Engineering Exhibition. 

According to Performance on Hand it has always been dedicated to researching and creating the best new technology for hands at work.

"Our mission is to push the barriers of what's possible, and create gloves that will protect hands under even the most extreme of circumstances," the company said.

"That's why we partnered with the most complete energy infrastructure focused company in the world to envision a new product that would service their needs; they required gloves that would blow all other gloves out of the water.

They needed them to be waterproof, oil proof, cut, crush, and bruise resistant. They needed them to be resistant to heavy impacts, but yet provide a high level of flexibility in the fingers and palm; a glove that is purportedly 'safe' but that does not provide ample use and dexterity of the hand inside it is just more of a hazard."

The result? The all-new Bollwerk rCat protective glove.

According to Performance on Hand, when it begun the journey to create the new protective gloves it focused on the individuals who needed this product. Its partner is a world-leading procurement, engineering, construction and fabrication company that provides infrastructure and environmental services throughout Australia and the world.

Performance on Hand claims that there has never before been a high protection safety glove that works like the rCat.

We have created a product that independent testing and certification has shown to exceed the highest cut level of 5 by 250%.

The rCat has a fully Hydrophobic SureGrip palm that resists both oil and water, meaning it not only keeps the hand dry but it also promotes the best grip possible in any environment.
