The 2021 Glass Build America Show in Atlanta, Georgia (Booth #3215) will see the unveiling of Magid’s new line of Personal Protective Equipment specially engineered to serve the unique needs of the Glass Industry and available soon to glass companies across the United States.
These game-changing and innovative products protect glass workers from head to toe while keeping them cooler and more comfortable including:
- ANSI Cut A9 garments that are up to 30% lighter than comparable products for the highest levels of cut protection with unmatched comfort and breathability
- PPG® and Neat™ certified gloves that dramatically outperform the competition and last up to 6 times longer, some with HB Fuller® approval for butyl adhesion resistance.
- Unmatched service and savings with unbeatable pricing!
“Magid has been providing solutions for glass manufacturing customers for decades. So when our glass industry customers told us that the PPE they were getting from other sources was bulky, cumbersome, and hot, we assembled a team to travel the country talking to customers in glass facilities from float glass plants to window and door assembly facilities. They told us, not only that their PPE wasn’t working for them, but that they were having trouble with supply lines and high prices. We got to work using some of our latest innovations in cooler, lighter, cut-resistant materials to create exactly what glass workers need to stay safe and comfortable in the hot environment of glass manufacturing,” said Jennifer Walrich, Product Manager at Magid. “Top glass manufacturers have already been testing and evaluating these items with us. They love the products and the incredible value!”
Magid’s M-GARD® garments with AeroDex® Technology integrate new fibers and yarn wrapping techniques to give you lighter weight PPE that won’t trap heat. These cool, comfortable tops, chaps, aprons, and neck guards are designed to protect especially vulnerable areas like neck, underarm, upper inside leg, and wrist with industry-leading ANSI A9 cut protection and ANSI A7 protection at the chest, upper arm, torso, and back.
Hand and Arm Protection
Magid’s gloves for glass handling are designed for the needs of different levels of glass manufacturing, some with PPG, Neat, and/or H.B. Fuller certification. Whether it’s gloves for handling Coated Glass, Raw Glass, or Window Manufacturing, every design includes innovative coatings and maximum cut protection. Protective sleeves are available in materials that are significantly lighter than comparable cut protection.
Head to Toe PPE
As a distributor as well as a manufacturer, Magid is equipped with all the essentials from hard hats to earplugs, masks, fall protection, eyewear, and more to protect workers throughout busy glass plants.
