AmSafe achieves CE certification for new Grip Glove

By Maryann Simson


AmSafe Interior Products has recently launched the Grip Glove, a CE certified tool offering flight attendants greater protection when operating steam ovens onboard.

The five fingered glove is constructed from quilted cotton and a knitted polyester inner which is then dipped into a natural latex. The latex provides safer handling and control while allowing for mobility of containers in confined spaces. Right and left hand identification bindings are also incorporated.

“Serving meals from a steam oven during flight requires care and a certain level of caution. There should be no compromise when it comes to the safety of your flight attendants,” said Bernard Emmett of AmSafe Interior Products. “We regularly talk to the airlines about how we can improve our products and services. It became very clear there was a need for a gauntlet that they could trust and would give them piece of mind. With its CE Approval, we believe our Grip Glove answers this call and raises the standards of safety and protection of anyone working with steam ovens.”

Emmett continued to say that the product had generated a good initial response from AmSafe customers. He added that he is willing to send a free sample to any interested parties and that AmSafe will also display the new product at its stand during Aircraft Interiors Expo Hamburg 2013.

AmSafe Interior Products, which also manufactures in-flight cabin interior items such as sleep suits, papers cups and flight bags, is part of the AmSafe group of companies, which are leaders in the provision of safety restraint products.
