Certified glove reduces vibration hazards

Ergodyne introduces ProFlex 9000 certified anti-vibration glove.

St. Paul, Minn., June 9, 2010—Ergodyne announced the addition of the ProFlex 9000 certified lightweight anti-vibration (AV) glove to the ProFlex Vibration Reducing Series.

Many AV gloves use thick padding to dampen and reduce vibration. While this type of construction is very effective and durable, it can also limit dexterity and cause workers’ hands to become quite warm. The ProFlex 9000 features chloroprene rubber palm padding and a breathable cotton/nylon knit body for flexible, lightweight, certified-AV protection. Together, these features provide a value-priced, certified-AV solution that reduces the risk of hand/arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) and other vibration-related hazards, including worker fatigue and discomfort.

“Our ProFlex brand has long been synonymous with certified-AV hand protection,” said Tom Votel, CEO and president of Ergodyne. “The addition of the ProFlex 9000 lightweight AV glove provides workers with yet another option for reducing the risk of HAVS and other vibration-related issues.”

The ProFlex 9000 is cited to be ideal for any applications involving vibrating/impact tools, heavy vibrating equipment or machinery. The ProFlex 9000 is available this summer through authorized Ergodyne distributors.
