VanStarr Offers Unique Safety Gear for Pallet Workers
New products in the pallet industry.
Date Posted: 8/1/2010
VanStarr Enterprises recently introduced a simple, yet very beneficial safety product to the pallet industry called “Arm Chaps.” This unique product, similar to gloves, is designed to cover a person’s forearms, wrists, and hands, while leaving the fingers totally exposed. Regular gloves are typically worn over the Arm Chaps to continue protecting the fingers. Arm Chaps provides an extra layer of protection that’s commonly needed from the wrists up to about the elbow. The product is made with 1.5 mm to 2.0 mm thick leather (cow hide), with a zipper that runs from the wrist area to the upper forearm area. The leather is not “lined” so that it feels good against the skin and breathes well so that you won’t get too hot.
Arm Chaps provides numerous benefits including: extended protection over normal work gloves, form-fitting leather provides very comfortable wrist support to prevent wrist injuries while handling pallets, and a zipper that can allow you to adjust the fit. In situations where you take off your regular gloves to work on things where you need to use your bare fingers, the Arm Chaps can still remain on your arms because they are out of the way. Whether in the zipped or unzipped position, Arm Chaps will not fall down when properly fitted.
This safety and performance gear comes in seven sizes although hand & arm measurements are recommended. Arm Chaps are also available in numerous colors (Tan, Light Brown, Black, and Safety Orange).
