Milwaukee Cut resistant sleeves lineup
Milwaukee says that arm injuries from lacerations are becoming more common on the jobsite, especially in demo work, overhead work in unfinished spaces, service work in metal buildings, and sheet metal handling. So to combat these injuries they’ve developed new arm sleeves with cut protection. They offer cut level 3 and cut level 5 options and have several features in mind to help users in the jobsite. On top of the cut protection they offer, they are moisture wicking to help keep users cool and they have 4 way stretch material to make them comfortable when wearing. They also feature silicone bands at the top of the sleeves near the biceps to help hold the sleeves from sliding and the hand end has a thumb loop to keep them from sliding back when putting gloves on. Cut level 5 sleeves are constructed of 13-gauge knit while the cut level 3 are 15-gauge knit that’s both lightweight and breathable. They also have color coded wrist bands to easily identify the cut protection with red bands for cut level protection 5 and black for the cut level protection 3 sleeves. They will be available in two sizes of 16″ and 18″ sleeves.
