SuperFabric® Protection from cut, puncture, and needle hazards

Needlestick Resistance

HexArmor® needlestick-resistant products work by layering flexible SuperFabric® brand material over each other; providing superior performance without sacrificing dexterity. SuperFabric® guard plates either block and deflect or trap and arrest needle hazards in the small gaps found between guard plates, keeping workers safe from needlestick injuries.

The prevalence of needlestick punctures in the recycling and waste industries, as well as the emergency services is steadily increasing. Without proper protection, workers are susceptible to life-changing needlestick injuries that can lead to bloodborne pathogens, including hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.

SuperFabric® offers industry-defining needlestick protection. And, unlike most other needle-resistant technology, you don't see a dip in other protective properties when you choose HexArmor®  PointGuard® products. HexArmor® needlestick-resistant products also boast some of the highest cut resistance in the industry.
