ANSI Rated Abrasion-Resistant Industrial Work Safety Gloves

The primary danger posed by construction with rebar arises from the associated physical hazards.  The steel bars are heavy, clumsy to maneuver, and have sharp, abrasive edgese that can stick out from construction projects. Rebar surfaces are often patterned or ridged to form a better bond with the concrete and it can be highly abrasive or sharp, especially when it is cut to length.  It is also very common for rebar to rust when subjected to environmental conditions.

Working with rebar requires at a minimum the use of a good pair of protective work gloves but a common complaint among construction crews and foremen is that their work gloves often degrade too quickly. This not only potentially exposes workers to punctures or slash type hand injuries and possible infection, but it also drives glove replacement costs to spiral out of control. Injury recordables and loss time equate to elevated insurance rates and a loss in overall productivity which often turn disastrous, i.e. deadlines. It also drives replacement costs to spiral upward!

For those seeking a durable and economical work glove recommended by Superior Glove® for use with steel concrete reinforcing bars are two TenActiv™ Brand seamless knitted industrial work gloves. These protective gloves are made with a high performance lint free filament yarn composite that's stronger than steel based on an equal-weight basis!
