Ansell gives workers a safe hand

In a move designed to encourage workers to observe hand protection procedures in the workplace, Ansell has developed a technique that creates relief zones in the glove structure.

Called Zonz Knit Technology Ansell says this new liner knitting technology reduces hand fatigue by providing stress release in the knuckle area through a patented knitting process with a varying stitch design that enhances glove stretch for maximum flexibility and dexterity.

Comfort is also enhanced by an additional knitting process that drops down the little finger. With the upper palm portion below the middle-three fingers knitted separately from the rest of the palm, and the little finger joint mounted lower than the rest, independent movements are enhanced resulting in a better-fitted glove.

“Gloves that lack comfort and dexterity are often removed by workers to perform some tasks, leaving them open to risk of injury,” says Ansell’s Asia Pacific Head of Marketing, Greg Plemmons.

“Discussions with many users of gloves for industrial applications have shown a positive response to this advance in glove design,” he says.
