5 Ways Your Hand Protection is NFL-Worthy

by Frank MacDonald on September 14, 2016

Comments (0)

Have you ever considered that the flashy, sometimes even silly looking pro football hand protection is really the NFL’s version of a work glove? It’s true, and there are a lot of similarities between the gloves they wear and the ones that keep you safe at work.

While you probably aren’t a pro athlete, the goal is the same: come home in the evening with your most important tool — your hands — injury free for another day in the game.

#1: Stay Warm Through Cold Weather

Football season isn’t exactly the most forgiving when it comes to weather conditions. Players brave frigid temperatures, rain, sleet, and snow, and it’s all in a day’s work. Moisture-wicking materials keep hands dry and insulation keeps them warm. Sound familiar?

Workers who clock in and spend the day battling the elements need extreme protection against the worst that the coming cold season can dish out. That’s why our best cold weather gloves are so dependable and popular.

#2: Keep Free Movement and Dexterity

How effective would your favorite quarterback be on the field if his hands were protected but stiff as a board? There’s a compromise involved with balancing protection and dexterity, and gloves that the NFL chooses helps their players get it right.

The same can apply to your work gloves. In fact, one of our most popular styles carries this feature by name. The Dexterity® Kevlar® Gloves with Micropore Nitrile Grip is a well-rounded glove that offers excellent grip that helps you retain a good range of motion.

#3: Resist Work-Related Abrasions

Scratches, turf burns and other related hazards are part of the game, which is why pro football players require a high level of abrasion protection. Necessary and unnecessary roughness not only ruins a perfectly good pair of gloves, it can ruin hands long before halftime.

If you need abrasion resistance for your line of work, you can’t get much better than our Endura® Cowgrain Driver Gloves. These soft, warm and comfortable gloves offer lightweight hand protection and the best that you can get in abrasion protection. Because they’re all-purpose gloves, they’re ideal for a wide range of industries.

#4: Protect Against Unexpected Impacts

Football is practically synonymous with powerful impacts. And with so much padding to protect vital organs as well as a player’s noggin, it only makes sense to protect hands against crushing blows and crushing in general.

Superior Glove also has PPE that protects that hand from injury due to impact. Whether you work in oil and gas, metal stamping, industrial pipe fitting or any other job where your hands need serious impact protection, our Dexterity® Anti-Impact Cut-Resistant Glove made with Micropore Nitrile Grip has a thermoplastic rubber backing that protects the back of hands and it stays flexible, too.

Maybe the closest that you’ll ever get to the NFL is a seat on the 50 yard line. But your work gloves can offer as much protection as your favorite player’s, and probably even more. No matter what the coming cold and messy season has to dish out, you’ll be ready for it with work gloves from Superior.

#5: Minimize Fumbles with Excellent Grip

A player might disagree but as far as fans and coaches are concerned, there’s no excuse for fumbling the ball or losing grip on an opponent. Some of the best hand protection for football tout “stickiness” as a major selling point, and it has to work in all types of weather.

Grip means everything to a lot of other industries, as well. Assembly, construction, utility, masonry and many other workers rely on an enhanced grip to keep work flowing. Check out our TenActiv™ Composite Filament Fiber Cut-Resistant Knit with Black PU Palms features a black polyurethane palm that enhances grip without sacrificing dexterity.
