From the Manufacturer
Glove meets ANSI S3.40: 2002 / ISO 10819: 1996 anti-vibration glove standard, also marked CE DK-0200-C.686. 100% leather glove features our exclusive Gfom vibration-reducing pad covering palm, fingers and thumb. Safety cuff allows fast and easy glove removal in an emergency situation. Keystone thumb and Gunn-cut fingers for a fit that minimizes hand fatigue. Padded knuckle strap for extra protection in confined spaces. Kevlar stitching for seam strength. Power tools, whether electric, gas, or pneumatic, generate vibration energy which is transmitted through the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders and sometimes even amplified by the body structures it passes through. Generally, the vibration does not seem like a problem just a part of the job. But problems arise with long-term exposure to vibration. HAVS (Hand/Arm Vibration Syndrome) is the general classification for several vibration-related disorders and now affects millions of people worldwide. The development of HAVS may be gradual, or sensations of tingling or numbness in the fingers may show up within a few weeks. Most HAVS disorders have no medical cure. This makes it critical to protect against vibration exposure whenever possible. This glove offers tested and proven protection from various vibration frequencies encountered when using power hand tools. Please note: These gloves are sold for Right or Left Hand, not as a pair. Please make certain you are choosing the correct glove. Vibration reducing Decade brand gloves with Gfom have been tested and certified in Europe to meet strict standards set there for worker protection. Testing was conducted at Delta Acoustics & Vibration in Denmark.
