Innovative technology combined with unmatched dexterity is next step in law enforcement protection and tactility.

Denver, CO – HWI Gear, Inc., industry leader in glove manufacturing and chief supplier of innovative law enforcement and military protective apparel, announced in early 2020 that it has released the most innovative hypodermic needle puncture and cut resistant glove, the Puncture Pro (HPG100).

The HPG100 was designed for the growing threat of needle sticks for law enforcement and corrections officers and offers the highest rating for both hypodermic needle sticks (28 gauge ASTM F 278) and cut resistance (ASTM F 2992-15) from the ASTM E3109-18: Standard Specification for protective gloves worn by law enforcement and corrections officers results. The HPG100 also scored the highest level of protection for dexterity (level 5) from EN 420 tests.

According to Isaac Hatch, Vice President of HWI Gear, Inc., “The Puncture Pro is a very exciting new design in the industry of PPE for law enforcement and corrections. We already had a puncture glove that performed to the highest standards of puncture protection, but now with the Puncture Pro we offer a glove that offers critical tactility not offered anywhere else in the market. Offering great levels of hypodermic needle puncture protection and cut-resistance, the Puncture Pro also gives you peace of mind knowing that with these gloves you do not have to worry about hinderance to any critical operation. They feel like a lightly lined glove and protect like a heavily lined PPE item.”

The Puncture Pro, made from durable synthetic leather palm and touchscreen technology in the index finger and thumb is the next step in high-level protection and tactility.  With two layers of special cut-resistant and puncture-resistant flexible mesh in the palm and flexible spandex knit material and neoprene back HWI maintains superior proficiency, flexibility and comfort.
