The formula for SmartShell BKCR4499 gloves starts with a machine knit, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene with ANSI cut level A5 protection on the palms. The strength-to-weight ratio is eight to 15 times higher than steel.
Next, thermoplastic rubber padding is sonically welded to the back of the glove for protection from contusions, smash injuries, object strikes, pinch-point injuries to the tips of each finger and other impact hazards.
The gritty black nitrile palm coating offers wet grip and the bright lime green shell color meets the requirements of American National Standard for high-visibility safety apparel.
SmartShell naturally shapes to the contours of the hand and flex points. For extra durability, SmartShell is double-stitched in high-wear areas including fingertips, index finger and palm.
Jeff Cullman, vice president of sales for Brass Knuckle Protection, said, "When designing SmartShell, our goal was to create the ultimate combination of safety and comfort in a protective glove. We partnered with our valued distributors to collect a list of ‘must haves’ and set out to engineer a glove that brings together the right measures of impact protection, cut protection and ergonomics. It really is a next-generation type of glove. Once people try it, they’re immediately impressed by how well all of its features perform in real world environments.”
