Finger Styles

  • Full fingers offer best hand protection.  
  • Open finger gloves ensure full dexterity and tactile feedback.
  • Full finger gloves provide maximum protection.

VEP Padding

VEPs are solids that mimic the behavior of liquids, which allows dissipation of shock waves better than any other material. The "solid-liquid" nature of VEP absorbs shock waves in all directions at once, reforming to its original shape at a rate that is slow enough so as not to exert outward pressure that could cause reverberations, but fast enough to regain its original shape before the next shock.

  • In laboratory tests, VEP has proven its ability to absorb up to 500% more shock than foam of the same thickness
  • The unique manner in which VEP dissipates impact energy, makes it an ideal material for the improvement of health and safety in industry and commerce
  • VEP padding is positioned in or in combinations of multiple places on the hand: palm, back of hand, fingers, thumb web area
  • VEP is also used for body protectors and cushions to dampen impact and vibration
  • Typical thickness of gloves are 1/8” (3 mm) to provide excellent shock absorption and impact dissipation while allowing tactile feedback
  • Also available in 3/16” (4.5 mm) and 1/4" (6 mm) thickness for specialty applications
