Safety sleeve offers cut protection, abrasion resistance
Ansell has introduced the HyFlex 11-200 HI-VIZ sleeve, combining comfort with ANSI level three cut performance and ANSI level two abrasion resistance. The product's highly visible fluorescent yellow colour also helps keep workers safe in environments with poor light or in applications where individuals work at a distance.

Featuring an anatomical and ergonomic design, the one-size HyFlex 11-200 sleeve provides an adjustable system in the forearm area and generous space in the upper arm area to ensure proper fit for all workers, regardless of size. Enhanced freedom of movement promotes product acceptance and allows workers to do their job without constraint, helping to boost productivity. An easy-to-use fixing system prevents roll down by attaching the safety sleeve to the worker's shirt.

The new HyFlex 11-200 HI-VIZ sleeve has a glass fiber core densely wrapped by polyester, with a tight outer wrap of clear nylon. The woven material reduces snags and the combination of higher level of abrasion protection and launder-ability extends product wear to lower the cost of ownership.

Recommended applications include body shops, glass and metal sheet handling and stamping in a variety of industries: aerospace, automotive and OEM, electrical machinery (white goods), metal fabrication, the glass industry, machinery and transportation equipment.
