Stop Spooling Your Fingertips!

Innovative Industrial Leather Driver Gloves Prevent Pinch Point Injuries During Spool Change-Outs

The manufacturing processes of tires are highly automated and are more complex to design and build than one might think. There are many different parts that go into the making of a tire and they all play an important role in making sure our vehicles perform at its best and keeps us safe. Many tires are custom-designed to meet the stresses and performance needs specified by the maker of a particular model vehicle. To keep tires in shape and to enhance durability, steel tire cords are used as reinforcing materials. Steel cord is made of high-grade steel and it is a popular core among passenger cars featuring radial tires, but if you’re an operator in charge of changing spools of steel cord, you most likely have a different opinion of it! 

Reloading new spools of steel cord can cause crushing and impact related hand injuries, particularly to the fingertips. Recognizing this, the engineers at the Superior Glove® company have created an innovative hand protection solution to offset the severity of these injuries. Wearing (the right) work gloves can significantly reduce your chance of injury and new impact safety standards such as ANSI/ISEA 138 are ensuring more and better protection for sensitive areas like fingers.

What about the fingertips? Without a doubt, the most sensitive area of your hands, yet there exists very little in the way of protection specifically for fingertips…Endura® Leather Driver Gloves with Finger Caps from Superior Glove®that is, until now!


Years of research plus many more years of field trials have cumulated into PinchGuard technology, the first work gloves in North America designed specifically with fingertip protection built right into your work safety gloves.
