New impact- and slip-resistant glove offers HPPE CR level 4 shell.

Brass Knuckle® safety products has introduced the SmartShell™ BKCR4599, a heavy-duty protective glove offering wide-ranging protection for extreme jobs. The BKCR4599 is a category jumper providing heavy-duty cut resistance, light oil and moisture resistance, non-tacky slip resistance, and shock-absorbing impact protection—all in an easy-wearing glove that defies comfort expectations. Providing a broad spectrum of protection, the BKCR4599 is a high-end mechanic’s glove that delivers ANSI level 4 cut resistance in a very breathable, durable, and flexible glove.

On the palm and fingers, the BKCR4599 offers three layers of protection. The liner is an ultra-high-performance polyethylene (HPPE) and spandex composite that delivers heavy-duty cut resistance without bulk. Bonded to that first layer is a gray polyurethane (PU) fabric topped with a grippy nitrile surface; a barrier to light-oil or other light-liquid penetration. In critical areas of the palm, padding provides impact resistance. Finally, the back of the hand is loaded with sonically welded thermoplastic rubber (TPR) padding that easily counters workplace pounding and abrasion.

This is mega-mighty construction—combining fit, form, and function. All this without sacrificing long-wearing comfort and excellent dexterity.

“This is a heavy hitter,” said Tony Spearing, vice president of Brass Knuckle. “But like every Brass Knuckle® product in our line, this glove starts with fit. With such an amazing lineup of protective features, this glove separates itself with its wearability—and we exhaustively designed it to impress on this front.”

The BKCR4599 glove is well suited to work in a wide variety of industries including assembly, agricultural, construction, aerospace, electric energy, engineering, forestry and logging, heavy equipment, machine operation, manufacturing, material handling, mining, metal handling, oil and gas drilling, packaging, refining, rigging, and transportation.
