Cestuslines new DM Hybrid glove is significant advance in hand protection for

first_imgCestusline says it has “received outstanding feedback on [its] newest mining glove, DM Hybrid®. Originally created specifically for the underground mining industry, DM Hybrid is changing the way miners are looking at hand protection.  For instance, it features flexible TPR impact shields that protect from knuckle to fingertip.  Additional impact shields extend to the metacarpal and carpal regions of the hand for maximum impact protection. It has been nominated for the 2014 International Mining Technology Hall of Fame inductions. “For years, the mining industry has compromised with gloves designed for other industries.  DM Hybrid was born out of conversations with safety engineers and end users.  By assessing their feedback of what was not working, Cestusline was able to create a glove that met their actual needs in the field,” the company says. The first thing to notice about the DM Hybrid is the vivid, high visibility colour scheme with the moulded polycarbonate knuckle.  The DM Hybrid palm features Cestusline’s exclusive Ripple Grip® palm technology that is cut resistant level 2 and houses strategically spaced anti-vibration pods filled with Cestusline’s exclusive, Hexagonal Memory Gel®.“It’s unusual to see a glove that is so obviously armored have such flexibility.  It’s what we have been needing at work,” said a recent Mining Expo Attendee.last_img
