NEWTON, NC — Industrial glove manufacturer Southern Glove announced that it has introduced a new line of Kevlar® sleeves for protection in manufacturing environments where cuts and abrasions can occur.
“For decades, industrial and manufacturing customers have looked to Southern Glove for top-quality hand-and-arm protection,” said Brent Fidler, President and CEO, Southern Glove. “We’re proud to add Kevlar sleeves to our line of impact gloves that includes our new Arma-Tuff glove and the popular Sarco Impact glove.”
Southern Glove’s sleeves are constructed from 100% single- and double-ply Kevlar and are available in lengths from 10″ to 24” and width options of 3″ and 4”. Since Kevlar fibers are inherently flame-resistant, these sleeves resist burning, combustion, or melting. Southern Glove offers the sleeves in eight standard fitting options and custom-makes sleeves to customer specifications upon request. The sleeves are manufactured from US-made Kevlar yarns at Southern Glove’s American-managed factory in Honduras. Southern Glove also carries a full line of protective sleeves made from cotton as well as Kevlar.
Southern Glove’s products are available exclusively through a national network of authorized glove distributors throughout the United States. The company also carries an extensive inventory of products located at its Newton, NC warehouse.
Headquartered in Newton, NC since 1945, Southern Glove is American-owned by the same family who founded the company and has operated manufacturing continuously in Honduras since 1997.
