Duluth Trading Co., Belleville, Wis., is the exclusive dealer for Ironclad GripTec™ gloves, a new product that will provide tradesmen with additional safety and confidence and reduced fatigue when handling tools. The palm of the glove is equipped with 3M™ Greptile™ gripping material, and each pair comes with an adhesive-backed strip that adheres to the grip of any tool, such as a hammer or power tool. When the glove and tool are used together, it can create up to 300 percent more gripping strength, resulting in decreased muscle fatigue and vibration. It also reduces the chances for carpal tunnel syndrome.
