KONG Impact gloves were introduced in 2007 after extensive research with the Oil & Gas Safety Committee in collaboration with major Oil & Gas companies, to address the issue of hand safety.
The KONG impact protection design was based on measuring impact forces at multiple hand zones to determine the level of TPR protection required to minimise impact force for the wearer, ultimately to avoid hand injury. KONG’s patented impact protection reduces impacts by up to 95%*, turning breaks into bruises.
KONG take into consideration comfort, daily use and flexibility with our Flawless Fit System – a 16 point measurement system that is unique for all of our glove styles – providing the best fitting gloves in the market.
The first KONG Impact glove was the KONG Original (SDX2) which is still the most popular glove in the range today and undoubtedly the most recognisable around the globe.
The KONG range consists of many styles suited to all task types and industries, from the Insulated Waterproof (SDXW2), Rigger Cut 5 (KRC5), to the Knit Cut 5 (KKC5B) or the Super Dexterity (SDXG2); with more new styles in development and some recently launched including the 360 Cut A6 Chemical Impact (KCHA5) and the Deck Crew Cut 5 Waterproof (KDC5W) both of which are Cut Level F.
To date KONG have helped protect over 6 million hands from impact injuries, with 27 patents and 95 trademarks.
