Latest Brochure From Mechanix Wear, a Leading Offshore Gloves Company

Oil & gas drilling operations expose workers to numerous on-site hazards. Drilling safety managers demand a product that offers dorsal protection, reflectivity for improved visibility and awareness, extra grip for slip prevention, and critical impact resistance.

When performing drilling operations it’s critical to reduce the impact your hands take when performing certain tasks in order to protect joints from excessive wear, pinch point injuries, blistering, cuts, and heavy impact injuries. Mechanix Wear has worked with safety professionals in the oil and gas industry to bring the essential protective and performance enhancing features of the M-Pact® EXP-1™ & EXP-2™ to life.

M-Pact® EXP-1™ Be seen. Be protected. The EXP-1™ is flexible, form fitting, and equipped with performance enhancing features to handle the rigorous demands of drilling and heavy equipment operations.
