Should You be Wearing Cut-Resistant Sleeves?

Comments (0)

You might be wondering why, as a glove manufacturer, this post is dedicated to protective cut-resistant sleeves instead of work gloves. Well, while they’re great on their own, just like peanut butter and jam, spaghetti and meatballs, and Bert and Ernie, work gloves and protective sleeves are a magical pair that, to put it simply, are just better together.

Available in tapered or tubular knit, single or double layer styles, as well as in a variety of different materials, there are several different types of protective sleeves on the market – and all come with their own sets of super powers. While it’s important to note that different types of sleeves are more suitable for certain applications, today we’d like to dive deep into the most popular category: cut-resistant sleeves.

Cut Resistant Sleeves
Wondering if your workers would benefit from wearing cut-resistant sleeves? Here are three of the biggest advantages:

1. They’ll protect you against cuts.

While it might seem obvious, the biggest advantage of wearing cut-resistant sleeves is the assurance that your arms will be protected against even the most threatening of cuts hazards. We often discover that while workers have got their hands – both literally and figuratively – covered, their arms have often been overlooked.

Why expose your arms to dangerous cut threats if you don’t have to?

We’ve got a lot of different styles of cut-resistant sleeves for you to choose from (with a variety of ASTM cut resistance ratings) so that you can make sure that your arms are always shielded from sharp materials – regardless of the industry that you’re in.

Pictured below is one of our most popular styles: the high-visibility Superior® puncture and cut-resistant sleeve with Punkban™.


2. Many cut-resistant sleeves are also heat resistant.

While we’ve already established that cut-resistant sleeves are good for, well, protecting you against cuts, they’re also an effective form of protection against a number of other types of hazards. In most industries, this is a huge advantage; imagine you work in an automotive plant, and you’re wearing sleeves that’ll protect you against sharp materials but not against extremely hot pieces of metal. Ouch!

So here’s what we’d recommend: if you work in an industry where you face multiple different kinds of hazards while you’re on the job, opt for a multi-tasking pair of sleeves like our award-winning Contender™ flame-retardant sleeves with STAYz-UP™ armbands and thumbholes!

3. They’re great for when you’re carrying lots of large, heavy materials.

Does your job involve you having to repeatedly lift and carry materials that are so large and awkward that they often end up brushing against your arms? Wearing sleeves can help minimize or even prevent nasty scratches and bruises from occurring as the objects you’re carrying brush against you.

So, there you have it: three crucial reasons why you need cut-resistant sleeves in your life! So, what are you waiting for? Click the button below to get your free sample of one of our most popular styles: our Contender™ Aramid cut-resistant composite-knit sleeves with wide bicep bands.
