Ronco Introduces Defensor™, Thumb-Crotch Reinforced Cut Level 5 Gloves Unique Reinforcement for Extra Protection and Durability

Concord, Canada, May 16, 2014 --( Ronco, one of the leading PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) manufacturers of Canada has expanded the Defensor™ line of Cut Resistant Gloves by introducing 2 new styles in Cut Level 5 category. These new gloves feature a new innovative element that makes them extra resilient and resistant to wear and tear.

Traditionally, one of the areas that experiences the most wear and tear in gloves is the thumb-crotch section. This abrasion is especially noticed in industrial applications like glass handling, metal fabrication, handling of scrap metals and construction work. Offering a solution to this problem, Ronco has introduced a unique Thumb-Crotch Reinforcement for extra protection and durability. Extra HPPE fibres are sewn into the thumb-crotch area creating an additional layer making it more resistant to wear and tear, thereby increasing the longevity of the glove and reducing overall costs. The extra reinforcement makes these gloves perfect for jobs entailing high cut and scrape hazards.

Mr. Ron Pecchioli, President at Ronco said; “As Hand Protection Specialists, we understand the application and then create solutions for them. Our new thumb-crotch reinforced gloves offer better protection for users; while providing cost savings as well. Introducing these new products demonstrates our commitment to innovation in safety.”

These unique Defensor™ Cut Level 5 gloves with the Thumb-Crotch Reinforcement are made of HPPE (High Performance Polyethylene) fibres and are available in 2 styles; Nitrile coated and PU (Polyurethane) coated. The Nitrile coating provides tough abrasion resistance with a firm dry grip and a liquid barrier for the palm. The PU coated gloves are ideal for applications that require precision maneuvering as its grip is comparable to that of the natural hand. These gloves are also abrasion resistant and breathable.

Both these Defensor™ gloves are CE rated (European standard) to Cut Level 5.
