NYPD Calls for Slash Proof Gloves for Officers

The brave folks in blue deserve the best hand protection available.

The New York City Police Department is on the lookout for slash-proof gloves to protect the city’s officers. Since the beginning of 2016, NYC has experienced 916 reported stabbings. That’s a steep increase of 22 percent over 2015, according to Vice News. The randomness of these crimes combined with the hazards that officers already face on a daily basis means that protection has to be comfortable enough to wear consistently, and protective enough to guard against slashes, punctures, and abrasion hazards.

Although knife crimes are making headlines in the city and around the country, city officials such as Bill Bratton, NYPD Commissioner, say there’s no cause for alarm. Officers need protection at all times, and they’ve always been outfitted with cut-resistant protective gloves.

At Superior Glove, we have numerous cut-resistant styles that also protect against abrasion, punctures, and other, similar hazards. Whether you’re an officer or a worker who needs the finest hand protection available, here are two of our top picks:

Endura® Goat-Grain Driver Gloves with Full Kevlar®/Composite Filament Fiber Liner

NYPD glove requirements are pretty specific: they need PPE that guards against tears, needle punctures, abrasion hazards, and of course, cuts. Gloves must have a protective liner with a shell of genuine goat skin. That’s according to the New York Post. Our Endura® Goat-Grain Driver Gloves have a full Full Kevlar®/composite liner, and offer superior hand protection.

With 1800 grams of cut protection and ANSI level 3 puncture resistance, these gloves are comfortable, durable, and offer great dexterity without being bulky. The protective Kevlar® lining is tailored to prevent bunching as well.

Endura® Goatskin Leather Driver Glove with Cut-Resistant Kevlar®/Composite Filament Fiber Lining

Genuine goatskin gloves are made from “nature’s strongest leather.” Our Endura® Goatskin Leather Driver Gloves have a Kevlar®/composite filament fiber lining that provides excellent protection against cuts, abrasions and punctures. With an extra layer of leather on the palm, these gloves provide even more protection while reducing the likelihood of damage due to wear. Without an elastic band at the wrist, these gloves are also easy to pull on and off.

These slash-proof gloves come with a high degree of cut protection: ANSI level A4 cut resistance protects your hands against slashes and other hazards. For excellent protection against puncture hazards, these gloves also provide ANSI level 3 puncture resistance. The lining is also made from a composite filament fiber that’s wrapped in Kevlar®, which ensures that hands stay safe all the way around.

No leather is truly cut-proof: it’s the combination of materials that keep hands safe, whether the wearer is walking a beat or working in a metal fabrication facility. Advanced composite filament fibers are engineered in layers to stop hazards before they reach the skin. Combine all of these elements, and you get a safer glove for cops and everyday folks alike.
