Resistance to cut and abrasion is critical when handling metal, glass, masonry, plastic and many other materials with sharp edges and/or rough surfaces. Aura was developed because Tornado recognised that standard coated gloves were often unable to cope with some extreme hazards faced by end-users. We also identified the need for a tougher glove that could still offer excellent dexterity and grip.
Our Aura glove appeals to a multitude of different end-users across many industries including (but not limited to) Glass, Automotive Manufacturing and Aftermarket, Metal Presswork, Waste & Recycling, Construction, Engineering, Aerospace and Oil & Gas. In fact, any high risk industrial environment.
Aura carries the highest score for cut and abrasion resistance even in the new, more rigorous, EN388:2016 test. It has a leather palm for superior wet and dry grip and ballistic reinforcement for the critical wear area between thumb and forefinger; we call this Sharp Shield Technology. In addition, the glove is treated with Clean Polyurethane Technology for hand health, High Density Polyurethane Technology for durability, Anti-Bacterial technology for hygiene and it carries the stamp of approval from the Glass Industry ensuring zero contamination when handling soft-coat glass. Protection is even extended up the wrist with an extra-long elasticated cuff providing a comfortable and snug fit.
As Aura is designed for dexterity, we've left the very tips of the fingers free from leather. This means you can use your fingertips to grip and manipulate small components more easily.
