We at eSafetyStore have always been big fans of Ergodyne. Those folks know how to make safety products that are effective and even cool. (They also write really funny catalog copy, which we like too.)
Apparently we’re not the only ones impressed. Three new Ergodyne products are up for New Equipment Digest’s “King Awards” this year. The annual awards recognize standout products each year and give props to those behind creating them. Products are chosen in several categories and had to have been introduced in 2012.
The three Ergodyne products vying for hardware are good ones.
The Ergodyne MOLLE Industrial Utility Vest combines both great design and a high level of functionality.
The durable military-inspired vest utilizes four tough horizontal web straps on the lower torso that allow for the convenient attachment of storage pouches, carabiners, lanyards and other tools. And the MOLLE Vest features 3M Scotchlite reflective striping on the chest for additional visibility. The MOLLE vest is a great safety vest for utility workers and even for first responders.
ProFlex 925CPWP Dorsal Impact Gloves are an amazing source of hand protection.
They protect the wearer against cold, water, cut and puncture. And they have molded thermoplastic rubber guards on the back of the hand to provide a high level of dorsal protection. And, oh yeah, the work gloves feature 40g Thinsulate insulation to keep hands warm without adding uncomfortable bulk. The winter work gloves offer Level 3 cut and Level 2 puncture resistance. The ProFlex 925CPWP Gloves are pretty much good for everythign.
The N-Ferno Extreme Fleece Balaclava with Hot Rox is perfect for the outdoor winter worker.
The face mask features a Hot Rox Heat Exchanger, which is a foam insert that traps the heat and water vapor from exhaled breath. The user inhales warm, humidified air, which helps keep the core body temperature up. The winter balaclava is made from warm 320g fleece.
It’s hard not to agree, that as far as safety gear goes, this stuff is pretty cool. And Ergodyne does a great job with a variety of other safety apparel too. They make excellent hi vis jackets, reflective t-shirts, hi vis safety vests and more.
