LumberWorks, Chainsaw Gloves with 8 Layers of Kevlar on the Back of the Left Hand
At first glance, one would never guess that Superior’s new LumberWorks chainsaw gloves were just that: chainsaw gloves. Even after putting them on, you’d be no closer. But knowing what’s been engineered into them will make you a believer. They’re as comfortable, dextrous and good looking as a pair of our mechanics gloves, but with an eight-layer lining of Kevlar® on the back of the Left hand, a specific chain-arrest woven Kevlar® they provide a level of cut resistance designed to withstand a chainsaw running at 3140 feet per minute. This meets the EN 381:1999 Class 0 for chainsaw cuts.
We’ve designed other great features to compliment their exceptional cut resistance, like water-repellant, smooth, grain goatskin leather palms, that have built in anti-vibration reinforcement. Not only does this improve wear; vibration transfer to the hand is substantially reduced. Elasticized velcro wrists improve comfort, while preventing wood chips from falling into the back of the hand. The fabric on the back of the hand is a stretchy nylon/lycra fabric, laminated with a water-repellant breathable membrane, to keep hands dry.
