Hard work demands hard-working gear
MCR Safety’s combined standard-setting products and industry-defining levels of service are backed by an unwavering commitment to excellence.
Three product brands — Memphis Glove, Crews Glasses, River City Garment — make up the heart of MCR Safety. MCR Safety was born out of the union of Memphis Glove, Crews Incorporated, and River City Protective Wear. These three industrial safety companies bonded with the goal of providing the best equipment at the most competitive prices, and with service that is second-to-none.

Hand protection test methods
In effort for our hand protection industry to have a standard performance level analysis, the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) in conjunction with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) created test protocol known as ASTM F1790-97. Many of our cut resistant products reflect scores based on the portion of this standard for cut resistance which was developed in 1997. This cut protection performance test is often referred to as CPPT. Changes to the cut resistant protocol are pending at this time and may be adopted. The pending test protocol may require revisions to our advertised scores.
Recognize performance levels for CE and ANSI/ISEA 105 are different test methods and are calculated differently. Grams are used for the ANSI/ISEA 105 and the EN388 uses an “index” with a different scale for scoring. Test methods cannot be directly related. Different standards mean different performance at the same “lever”.
