Pictured above is a mix-match of our dexterous Impact Vibration Flexi with the more protective, but crude, Impact Vibration Amplitude. Hand-arm vibrations are one of the main causes behind work related injuries involving from power tools. Keep your hands protected during those summer projects!

Disclaimer: Impact Vibration Amplitude provides a higher level of protection compared to Impact Vibration Flexi; mixing and matching should be done with the utmost caution and only when high levels of dexterity are required to operate the tool.

Go Light!

Summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere. During these (hopefully) warm months, its all about lighter garments as well as lighter gloves for those summer activities and projects…

Eureka offers a range of super thin, ultra high dexterity and comfortable gloves. They are divided into 3 families:

 

“Cool”

Highest heat conductivity and a hydrophobic / hydrophilic construction that keeps your hands cool and dry!

*Unsuitable in presence of heat, flame or extreme cold.

18-5 SuperCool Ni

Thinner than a nylon glove, touchscreen and top rated F cut resistance!

18-3 Cool Ni

Super thin, touchscreen

 

“General”

Comfortable all-round gloves. High cut resistance & great sweat absorption

13-4 General Light SC

The Jack of all trades, thin, comfortable and cut E!

 

“Heat”

Fire resistant Para-aramid, anti-static yarns and a selection suitable from fine assembly tasks to racking big switches and breakers in big power installations.

15-4 Heat Ni

The ultimate workshop glove! Fire resistant textile and cut D all in a very fine and dexterous construction!

 

Stay cool and protected in the heat!

Vibration Reducing glove combos!

Hand-arm vibrations are one of the main causes behind work related injuries. At Eureka we have developed a glove solution for almost every type of tool. Each work situation comes with a different injury profile but also with its own requirements to comfort and dexterity. There can be a conflict between having the best protection and choosing a product that is more comfortable and easier to work with!

At Eureka we have now decided to allow the sales of half pairs of the gloves for the vibration reducing gloves named “Flexi” and “Amplitude”! The image above shows a great example of combining the dexterous Impact Vibration Flexi with the more protective, but crude, Impact Vibration Amplitude.

The mix and match of these models enables you to operate power tools that require a higher level of dexterity whilst also protecting your hands against dangerous vibration damage.

 

Disclaimer: Impact Vibration Amplitude provides a higher level of protection compared to Impact Vibration Flexi; mixing and matching should be done with the utmost caution and only when high levels of dexterity are required to operate the tool.

Eureka Arc Flash Protection. We’ve got the solution.

Not a single product, but a range

We have you covered for from low to high, NFPA 70E level 1 to 4.

Superior fit

The fit and finger dexterity is exceptional due our specially developed tooling that gives the gloves a pre-bent ergonomic shape.

High durability

Produced in our fully owned factory with best materials and processes yields an excellent durability in relation to common FR rated gloves.

Eureka Arc Flash gloves

We first introduced a special protective print to the back of our gloves in 2015. The print radically increase protection from the arc hazards of radiation and the hot plasma cloud/explosion.

Complete testing

Our gloves are tested in accordance to the box test that simulates an arc explosion in a confined space as well as the ASTM 2675 open arc for open room explosion. The gloves are tested without print for the certification value; and with print for a more realistic value which in our case protects against significantly higher energies.

Multi norm

The Arc Flash gloves also provide high cut resistance ranging from cut D, for the lightest glove 15-4 Heat AF4, to cut E, for the 13-4 HFR series.

Anti-static content

The textile is made of 2% anti-static fibres to reduce the risk of static electricity induced sparks enabling safe use in refineries and explosion exposed areas.

WE ARE MOVING!

Its an end of an era and the beginning of a new one here at Eureka Safety / Y. Berger & Co. After close to 50 years here in the Högsbo area, we will be moving to a bigger freshly built office building and warehouse.

We are aiming to be back up and running at 100% at the beginning of next week (week 9).

We apologize in advance for any delays in communication.

Our new address will be Gröenvägen 15, SE 438 91, Landvetter, Sweden. 

 

Goodbye Plastic, Hello Paper! Hooks!

Goodbye plastic, hello paper: update

Switching to paper packaging just isn’t enough!
During 2020 we will also be switching out our plastic hooks to a card paper in our effort to reach fully environmentally friendly accessories

Every minute nearly two million single-use plastic bags are distributed worldwide and every year 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our oceans. In 2020 Eureka will continue rolling out paper packaged products in an effort to reduce our impact on ocean pollution.
