New HyFlex™ 11-200 HI-VIZ™ Sleeve From Ansell Combines Unusual Comfort With High Level Of Protection

Safety sleeve offers cut protection and abrasion resistance with longer wear

 

July 16, 2013, Iselin, NJ, - Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, announces the introduction of the HyFlex 11-200 HI-VIZ sleeve, combining exceptional comfort with ANSI level 3 cut performance and ANSI level 2 abrasion resistance for greater safety. The product’s highly visible fluorescent yellow color also helps keep workers safe in environments with poor light or in applications where individuals work at a distance.

 

Featuring an anatomical and ergonomic design, the one-size HyFlex 11-200 sleeve provides an adjustable system in the forearm area and generous space in the upper arm area to ensure proper fit for all workers, regardless of size. Enhanced freedom of movement promotes product acceptance and allows workers to do their job without constraint, helping to boost productivity. An easy-to-use fixing system prevents roll down by attaching the safety sleeve to the worker’s shirt.

 

“Though most applications that require level 3 cut protection or higher for the hand also require arm or forearm protection, a number of arm and forearm products are available in the marketplace offer little comfort, being too tight and hinder movement or roll down and expose the arm to injury.” said Bob Gaither, Ansell senior vice president and regional director, North America. “Our new HyFlex 11-200 HI-VIZ sleeve not only addresses these comfort issues, but provides the proper best-in-class protection expected by Ansell.”

 

The new HyFlex 11-200 HI-VIZ sleeve has a glass fiber core densely wrapped by polyester, with a tight outer wrap of clear nylon. The woven material reduces snags and the combination of higher level of abrasion protection and launder-ability extends product wear to lower the cost of ownership.

 

Recommended applications include body shops, glass and metal sheet handling and stamping in a variety of industries: aerospace, automotive and OEM, electrical machinery (white goods), metal fabrication, the glass industry, machinery and transportation equipment.
