Saf-T-Gard expands its Versa-Gard® Flex line of gloves today with the addition of the Saf-T-Gard® Versa-Gard® Flex G2 (VGF-5512) and G4 (VGF-5524) Cut Resistant Gloves Made with GorillaYarn™. These gentle giants of cut-resistant hand protection mark the debut of Saf-T-Gard GorillaYarn, a proprietary new yarn blend designed to supply continuous comfort without sacrificing cut resistance. Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. was established in 1936 as Latex Glove Manufacturing Company producing rubber coated industrial gloves. Today, Saf-T-Gard is pleased to introduce the next generation in our heritage by combining cut‑resistant GorillaYarn with a modern, high-performance polymer coating to produce gloves that yield the most popular ANSI cut levels on the market and are tested to the latest standards.
As the largest living primate on earth, gorillas possess herculean strength with a generally soft and gentle nature. Similarly, the new Saf-T-Gard Versa-Gard Flex G2 and G4 Cut-Resistant Gloves Made with GorillaYarn exhibit an inherent strength and softness. The gloves’ polyurethane coated palms are highly resistant to abrasions, punctures, snags and tears, grip well on wet or oily surfaces, and when combined with GorillaYarn shells, provide an ideal balance of comfort and ANSI Cut Level A2 (VGF-5512) and A4 (VGF-5524) protection. Moreover, the ergonomically-designed hand shape is form-fitting, flexible and offers increased dexterity and tactile sensitivity for small parts handling making these gloves the perfect choice for assembly, metal/glass handling, maintenance, construction, food processing and general-duty applications.
“Given these gloves’ ability to deliver ANSI Cut Level A2 and ANSI Cut Level A4 protection and superior comfort and gripping power, the Saf-T-Gard Versa-Gard Flex G2 and G4 Cut-Resistant Gloves Made with GorillaYarn create tremendous value for our customers,” said Richard Rivkin, President and CEO, Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. “Not only will our customers benefit from these gloves’ enhanced performance, but they will also benefit from increased bottom line results through reduction in overall hand injuries as well.”
Available in sizes 7-11, the Saf-T-Gard Versa-Gard Flex G2 and G4 Cut-Resistant Gloves Made with GorillaYarn feature a continuous knit wrist color-coded elasticized finish to reduce fraying and provide a visual aid in sizing for easy sorting and dispensing. Both styles are sold by the dozen, packaged 12 pairs per master polybag, 6 dozen pairs (72 pairs) per case and are available for immediate shipment.
