Industrial Protective Safety Glove
The KARBONHEX name itself by the way is derived from the combination of Carbon Fibre and Hexagon, - being a high strength to weight ratio material based around a hexagonal structure, natures perfect shape.
KARBONHEX is and always will be a work in progress, it’s a living
breathing entity. Constantly expanding and evolving to meet the
constant new risks and challenges that confront thehands of working professionals on a daily basis.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
By using the lastest materials the glove affords more protection in all areas whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The initial concept was discussed in a bar over a few fews beers in Shanghai early in 2015 - it evolved over a period of time and initial concept samples were displayed at A+A safety exhibition in Dusseldorf Germany in October 2015. Feedback was extremely positive with clients wiching to take on the product immediately. However, we deceided to improve the performance and range further and will now be launched at the Cologne Hardware and Tooling exhibition in March 2016
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The palm area is manufatured from a ultra high abrasion synthetic that is a leading material in this area offering increased durability and protection.
TPR (Thermal Plastic Rubber) Impact Energy Dispersion System is applied to the back of the gloves/hands.These provide low profile flexible impact guards against impact injuries.
XRD specially formulated padding in the palm significantly reduces shock and vibration from power hand tools.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

As a company we have been manufcaturing industrial work gloves for more than a decade and are leaders in TPR dorsal protection. Normally we manufacture for OEM customers but decided there was a need in the market for a range of high specification hand protection that not only permormed well but also looked Kool.
