Tillman's Next-Level Cut Resistant, TrueFit®, High Visibility Glove: The 1477

Compton, CA /PRNewswire/ - Tillman announced yet another highly critical tool in its arsenal of PPE protection, the 1477 Mechanics-style, TrueFit® glove. "Sometimes, it's about what doesn't happen because you're wearing the right protection," said Robin Whitman, Marketing Manager for Tillman. "Yes, job downtime is important, as well as lost work hours. But keeping people safe, that's the number one goal. The 1477 is the answer," said Whitman.

Tillman's 1477 is a TrueFit® design (a Tillman exclusive), making them the ultimate handling and performance gloves. Tillman TrueFit® gloves are slightly undersized to deliver a "true fit" on your hand. TrueFit® gloves offer the perfect combination of comfort and protection.

The 1477 combines top-grain goatskin on the palm and fingers with a breathable, safety yellow spandex, keeping hands cool and comfortable. On the palm, there's a rough-side out, double goatskin layer, for a great grip, while protecting high-stress areas of the hand. Tillman uses only the finest quality goatskin, known for its exceptional abrasion-resistant properties, with high tensile strength. An elastic cuff with a hook & loop closure ensures a secure fit.

The 1477 offers ANSI A7 (American National Standards Institute) cut resistance on the palm, back of hand, and fingers, with Para-Aramid lining construction. Para-Aramid is a highly regarded synthetic polymer used to create bullet proof body armor fabric, found in high tech and military garments and equipment.

A7 is a highly sought-after cut resistance rating, and Tillman doesn't stop there: the glove has both an ANSI Abrasion and Puncture resistant rating of Level 4, as well. Together, the cut, abrasion and puncture resistance mean the 1477 gives outstanding performance in environments where sharp materials and surfaces are present. The 1477 can help reduce workplace injuries.

This glove joins Tillman's already impressive portfolio of MIG, TIG, STICK, and driver's gloves, as well as high heat, winter, and high visibility gloves. Tillman's also known for their full line of fire-resistant garments in leather and cotton, as well as aluminized protective garments. Both for the welding community and beyond, Tillman also provides protective curtains, both portable and track-mounted systems.
