Touch Screen-Friendly Glove

Tue, 12/03/2013 - 8:57am

Iselin, NJ - Ansell announces the introduction of the new HyFlex 11-101 and 11-105 gloves, the first touch screen-capable HyFlex gloves for industrial work environments. Both gloves are manufactured with a special conductive yarn designed to allow seamless interaction with touch screen equipment without removing gloves. Incorporating new technology into traditional work environments is a rapidly growing trend, and the application of touch screen technology has increased within the industrial sector. Unfortunately, most gloves for industrial applications are not optimized for touch screens. While touch screens allow site managers to expedite data input, maintain schedules and quickly place orders, safety regulations require that all workers move to safety zones before removing their gloves. HyFlex 11-101 and 11-105 gloves are made with a conductive yarn fiber that leverages the electrical signals naturally generated by the human body to activate touch screens. The yarn is woven with a layer of metal that provides conductivity between the fingertip and touch screen so workers do not have to remove gloves while using touch technology, improving productivity and minimizing potential safety hazards.
