Ansell gloves selected by ADF

19th April 2012 - 10:03 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ansell has announced that its ActivArmr Mission Critical Gear has been selected by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for its tactical, peace-keeping or relief operations. The company will supply combat gloves to the force for mounted and dismounted combatants.

The selection of Ansell followed a competitive tendering process which included user field trials. The award will see the company supply its ActivArmr Combat and ActivArmr Combat Extended Cuff gloves for the next three years, enabling the ADF to protect personnel at home and abroad.

Ansell already provides equipment to the US Navy and Air Force, as well as the US Army and Marine Corps.

ActivArmr Combat and Combat Extended Cuff gloves are comfortable and dextrous, designed and engineered for use in all types of environments and across a wide range of general and soldier-specific tasks. These fully flame-resistant gloves offer superior grip and protection with excellent tactility. Their rugged construction ensures durability in the toughest conditions. The ActivArmr Combat Extended Cuff, specified by the ADF, is Ansell's proprietary design.
