Brass Knuckle has released the SmartShell safety glove, which the company says is engineered to provide protection on multiple fronts while providing flexibility and an ergonomic design. The company says SmartShell naturally shapes to the contours of the hand and flex points, and for extra durability, SmartShell is double-stitched in high-wear areas including fingertips, index finger and palm.

SmartShell BKCR4499 gloves are made from a machine knit, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) with an ANSI cut level A5 protection on the palms. Its strength-to-weight ratio is 8 to 15 times higher than steel, the company says. Next, thermoplastic rubber (TPR) padding is sonically welded to the back of the glove for protection from contusions, smash injuries, object strikes, pinch-point injuries to the tips of each finger, and other impact hazards. The company says the gritty black nitrile palm coating offers excellent wet grip and the bright lime green shell color meets the requirements of American National Standard (ANSI/ISEA 107-2010) for high-visibility safety apparel.
