Linemen Safety and The Power Gripz
Get a grip on safety
Ultimately, linemen know keeping the power on is all in their hands. But ordinary gloves weren’t designed for the real-world, in-the-air work they do every day. Ordinary leather protector gloves get slick from wear and the oily residues on line apparatus; maddeningly slippery in foul weather. Linemen need and deserve a better grip on the tools, small parts and apparatus they use, to work more efficiently, keep drop zones safer and get the job done, no matter what conditions the linemen face.
That’s why the same team of professional linemen who identified the inadequacies of old fashioned leather protector gloves helped design, test and perfect The Power Gripz.
The only gloves designed by linemen, for linemen – tested and proven by science to be superior for grip, arc protection, heat penetration, and all-weather dexterity. The Power Gripz have been endorsed by Hugh Hoagland, founder and senior consultant to ArcWear.
