There’s a high spec, affordable hand protection brand looking to make a big impact in the competitive PPE sector. Torque provides the details…
Distributors are being sought for high specification hand protection brand KARBONHEX.
Industrial Glove manufacturer Shanghai Select Safety (Safety INXS) has been signing exclusive territory agreements with PPE distributors in
key countries and territories for its KARBONHEX range and is currently in advanced negotiations with others while actively seeking further representation for the innovative brand.
“KARBONHEX raises the bar both for working professional hand protection, grip and comfort,” explains Jason Sparrow, INXS Commercial Director. “Via our ever-expanding distribution network, working professionals now have an affordable option for the highest specification, high performance hand protection that combines award winning design with striking good looks and multi-functionality. Everybody wins.”
The evolving brand was conceptualised, designed and styled specifically for professionals working in the most challenging situations, conditions and hazardous environments. KARBONHEX’s advanced, compact range of ergonomic multi-functional hand protection ranges from super lightweight high dexterity pinpoint precision handling to rugged all-round anti-impact, extreme abrasion and cut resistance options.
Sparrow added: “KARBONHEX is and always will be a work in progress – it’s a living breathing entity. The range is constantly expanding and evolving to meet the constant new risks and challenges that confront the hands of working professionals every day.”
KARBONHEX’s award winning KX-05
Let’s take a closer look at the design of the KX-05 Karbon glove. Firstly, the glove features impact-absorbing ‘INPAX XERO’ palm padding which reduces shock and vibration incurred from using hand tools. The KX-05 features a rough grip distal palmar composite patch, plus a reinforced forefinger and thumbgrip zone, giving users greater control and helping them keep hold of tools, for example. Gruelling environments put hand protection through its paces and the KX-05 boasts ultra high abrasion synthetic suede palms that offers durability and long lasting comfort for the user. Another key feature is the low profile, dorsal TPR full finger and knuckle guards that help prevent injuries from impacts and knocks.
The high specification hand protectors have been constructed using what is described by Safety INXS as the most innovative engineered materials and technologies available, combined with creative unique custom styling.
A tight grip on production
Safety INXS has brought the KARBONHEX range from drawing board all the way through to production, explains Sparrow: “With us being the actual factory, designer and developer we are in the unique position to adapt or develop gloves rapidly in partnership with our distributors and their clients’ needs, nobody else can compete with us in this respect!”
The company says that it has carefully pitched pricing at a level that will provide distributors with extremely high profit margins for both retail and B2B sectors while maintaining a competitive edge. According to Safety INXS, KARBONHEX is circa 20% cheaper than comparable products. Marketing support is in place to push the brand, including in industry magazines and exhibitions to ensure high profile exposure, brand recognition and lead generation to support the distribution network. And there are exclusive territories available to potential distributors – ideal for those suppliers who are “tired of competing for the same low margin, oversubscribed glove business”.
