Klein Tools Journeyman Gloves

Klein Tools Expands Its Personal Protective Equipment Line with Journeyman Gloves

New glove technology and fabrics provide better safety, functionality and comfort
 
June 9, 2014 (Lincolnshire, IL) – Klein Tools, for professionals since 1857, expands its Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) product line with the new Journeyman™ Gloves.  The new Journeyman Series of gloves is made specifically for trade professionals who may encounter cuts, scrapes, impact injuries and vibration injuries on a regular basis.  
 
The daily impact that hands take when performing certain tasks can take a toll on health and performance. By wearing gloves, tradespeople can protect hands and joints from excessive abuse, reduce chemical exposure, and prevent blisters, cuts, and impact and vibration injuries.  With advanced technology, tougher materials and enhanced features, Klein Tools’ premium-quality Journeyman™ Gloves will provide professionals better hand-protection on the job in addition to more comfort and durability.
 
“Although hand protection is sometimes considered hindering, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states ‘25.3 percent of all work-related lost-day injuries are hand-related’,” states Greg Palese, vice-president of marketing at Klein Tools. “By wearing premium-quality gloves, professionals can reduce the daily impact that hands take on the job and increase work productivity.” 
 
The new Journeyman™ Gloves consist of six machine-washable models.
