In 1997, Ironclad’s founder Ed Jaeger, pioneered this new territory – developing task-specific gloves that helped each worker get the job done more safely, efficiently and effectively. But just developing task-specific work gloves wasn’t enough. Ironclad had a need to bring new technologies, materials, and innovations to these harsh working environments.
As a result, Ironclad has developed and owns 74 Patents and Trademarks worldwide. These exclusive properties are a part of Ironclad's expanding advanced glove technology which can be seen in virtually every glove Ironclad sells.
Ironclad is about constant innovation in order to celebrate the real Everyday Heroes of the world - the unrecognized hard-working men and women.
