What is Mechanical Protection?
Mechanical protection includes garments that provide cut, puncture and abrasion protection. A cut protective garment may not include protection from puncture and abrasion. The main safety standard that measures protection for these multiple hazards is ANSI/ISEA 105. Originally developed for gloves only, this standard is commonly used for cut resistant protection. Changing the name of our garments from Cut Protection to Mechanical provides you with the confidence that garments from National Safety Apparel provide protection against cut, puncture and abrasion.
