NEWS JUST IN - Aura has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2019 Tomorrow's Health & Safety Awards!
Wow – there are so many reasons to choose Aura as Glove of the Month!
Aura has been part of our range for around two years and many end users can’t remember how they ever managed without it!
End user safety is paramount at Tornado; a great deal of time, resource and expertise has been invested in developing a glove to overcome the complex and challenging hazards faced by industry.
Resistance to cut and abrasion is critical when handling materials such as metal, glass, masonry, plastic, and all sorts of other components with sharp edges and/or rough surfaces.
We developed the Aura Glove after recognising that a standard coated work glove was often not sufficient to cope with these types of hazard. We also identified the need for a tougher glove that could still offer excellent dexterity and grip.
Aura is an industry first - combining many dipped glove technologies from the Tornado Technical Range with a split leather palm and forefinger reinforcement. The glove has endless safe handling properties where the capability of a standard coated glove is hugely exceeded.
Aura is ideal for any industry where individuals are handling sharp or abrasive materials or objects, especially where there is a need for accuracy, dexterity and precision.
The glove is suitable for (but not limited to) use in the following industry sec
* Oil & Gas
* Metal Presswork
* Waste & Recycling
* Carpentry / Joinery
EN388:2016 higest score...
Industrial Safety Gloves are ranked using the European Standard EN388:2016, which grades a glove for abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.
Aura has the highest level of cut and abrasion resistance available in the market place; it will exceed the performance of any other coated glove. It scores EN388:2016 4X44F which means it achieves the top score in each category.
In addition to its coating, Aura is also reinforced with leather on the palm and the span between thumb and finger.
Leather is an extremely tough material, not only super-resistant to cut and abrasion, but also offering excellent flexibility, grip and dexterity when performing precision tasks.
The leather used by Tornado is a selected grade split, scientifically treated to enhance its natural strength. The end result is a material that provides highly reliable grip in wet, dry and oily conditions.
Sharp Shield Ballistic Reinforcement
Aura has ‘Sharp Shield’, a ballistic reinforcement system unique to Tornado. Positioned in the critical wear area between thumb and forefinger, it improves safety and increases the life of the glove by up to 18%, resulting in major PPE cost savings. The reinforcement is an integral part of glove’s construction and cannot become detached. The ballistic fibres used are the same as those used in bullet proof clothing so its protective properties speak for themselves!
Why choose Aura?
This glove is an essential item of PPE for areas where risk assessments indicate a ‘high risk’ of injury by cut or abrasion.
Any business interested in increasing the productivity of their workforce should use Aura as it allows the end user to work more quickly, accurately and with increased confidence; for smoother and faster production, along with a happier team.
