Banom bags 'Product Leadership' Frost & Sullivan award

Based on its recent analysis of the cut-resistant gloves market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Banom with the 2013 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. Unarguably superior to any competing products in the market, Banom's cut-resistant gloves go well beyond US and EU norm requirements to offer specialized protection to workers.

"Banom stands apart by producing cut-resistant gloves that pass through an application test rather than a standard cut test," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Anita Pamu. "Its patented yarns are developed to protect workers from the hazards associated with a particular application or end use. In fact, Frost & Sullivan's 2012 research found that Banom's products for the glass and sheet metal industries have a proven track record with Fortune 500 companies, helping reduce injury rates and total spending on employees. Industry participants strongly associated the brand with quality and performance."

Banom uses only high tenacity filament (HTF) yarns for its cut-resistant products. In contrast with spun yarns, which comprise individual fibers that are twisted into yarns, HTF yarns utilize a bundle of continuous fibers that together have higher tensile strength and can therefore resist breaking when exposed to sheet metal edges. The company has created several yarns to target different end applications. For the sheet metal industry, Banom uses Abratex (Duratex) and MaxPly  Dyneema . ArmorPlate is used for protection against knife blades, while TriMax Dyneema is used for razor blades. The company also uses Kevlar or glass composites for cut-resistant gloves for the sheet glass industry.

Banom also ensures that other product aspects such as grip, comfort and dexterity are not compromised. Its cut-resistant gloves offer additional protection such as chemical resistance, liquid protection and thermal resistance, and come with a variety of coatings that are suitable for different working environments. Available in a wider range of sizes than competing products, Banom cut-resistant gloves allow workers to achieve a custom fit and perform tasks that require a high level of dexterity.

Other unique customer value enhancements Banom provides include treating gloves with Sanifresh to increase resistance to bacteria growth. The company also offers its customers a cleaning program to suit their budget and inspection criteria. The Bantex reconditioning system maintains a product's safety and integrity and returns a bacteria-free product for reuse. This process extends the lifetime of cut-resistant gloves, which reduces cost in the long run.

Further, Banom offers a dispensing and collection system to facilitate the process of reuse. The Trackpro system is a vending or dispensing system that can maintain and control inventory movement. Custom-configured for a company's individual product and usage needs, these dispensing systems allow companies to record usage, limit the amount dispensed per person, and restrict available products based on the application in which they are to be used. A Bantex reclamation center can be connected to the Trackpro for the collection of dirty gloves and sleeves.
