Cut Through the Confusion

Recognizing the need for more consistent testing methodology, as well as higher and more accurate ratings, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Safety Equipment Association have issued a new revision to the "American National Standard for Hand Protection" (ANSI/ISEA 105) and the European Union has updated the standard for "Protective Gloves Against Mechanical Risks" (EN 388).

Unsure about the new changes and how they will effect you?

LET US HELP CUT OUT ACCIDENTS

Accidents happen on the job when you least expect it. Statistics provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that 13.6% of all occupational accidents in 2012 involved hand injuries, making them the most common type of injury besides back strains. These injuries are frequently the result of either improper fitting or no hand protection worn at the time of the accident, leaving hands and fingers especially vulnerable to cut hazards.

That's why SHOWA uses ISO 13997 test methods to provide customers a detailed and realistic view of each gloves' cut performance. These methods use sophisticated technology to capture the most accurate measurement of how much force a glove can withstand, helping you protect your hands, time and money with protective gear that resists up to 45 Newtons.
