These Vibration Dampening, Shock Dissipating Work Gloves Will Leave a Big Impact

Finally, new blooms have arrived signaling another growing season. Landscaping and gardening can be very rewarding but they are strenuous activities and filled with hazards such as poison ivy, wasps, bees, snakes and more.

If you are a passionate gardener, you most likely own serious tools that make the job easier and safer. No serious gardener would be complete without a good pair of work gloves, a shovel, a wheel barrel, kneeling pad and perhaps a gas powered cultivator.

Gas powered cultivators feature sharp steel tines designed to chew up and break apart harden soil. Rototillers enable individuals to enlarge or expand beds faster and easier but there’s a minor drawback to using them.

Cultivators are very powerful and require good hand and arm strength to control. Similar to a jack hammer, they bounce up and along the surface and require operators to rock the unit through the soil surfaces to be effective. These repetitive motions and vibrations will stress the muscles and joints leaving the hands numb and tingly, the wrists achy sore. If it’s a large job, you can expect the stress effects to linger on the wrists and hands for some time afterwards!

Specialized Hand Protection

There are two gloves that we recommend when you’re working the soil. From IMPACTO®, these specialized industrial work gloves are constructed with padded palms featuring Visco-Elastic Polymers (VEPs) designed to dissipate shock and vibrations making them perfect for demanding tasks such as digging, shoveling, wheel barreling and especially cultivation!

It’s About the Padded Palms

VEPs are solids that mimic the behavior of liquids, which allows dissipation of shock waves better than any other material. VEP absorbs shock waves in all directions at once, reforming to its original shape at a rate that is slow enough to not exert outward pressure, but fast enough to regain its original shape before the next shock. In laboratory tests, VEP has proven its ability to absorb up to 500% morST8610 Impacto® Half Finger Mesh Anti-Impact Glovese shock than foam of the same thickness.

Protect Against Repetitive Strain

1. The IMPACTO® ST8610 Mesh Anti-Impact Open Finger Glove is referred to as a Carpal Tunnel Glove. It has a unique patented channel over the carpal tunnel designed to keep pressure off the median nerve to alleviate symptoms of repetitive injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome caused by repetitive use and vibrating tools such as rivet guns, impact tools, air actuated tools and wheelchairs.
