The Anatomy of Great Safety Gloves

Safety gloves are vital for hands-on work, from carpentry and metalwork to DIY. But a hobby builder won’t understand their importance like a professional builder will. PIP is a great place to look for great safety glove; that also qualifies us to tell you what a good one is made of.

 

  • Flexible

Your safety gloves will move with your hands, not stifle them. It should be easy to pick up materials and use equipment.

 

  • Breathable

Most of us know and despise the how sweaty our hands can get in gloves. A microporous coating is the answer to this problem. It allows humidity to pass through the glove instead of trapping it.

 

  • Durable

You work hard most of the day and your gloves put up with just as much daily punishment. Your gloves are the first line of defense from thorny bushes, chemicals, fertilizer, and dust. But they show no signs of wearing down after 6 months to a year of hands-on labour.

 

  • Resistant

Oil, water, and dust are contaminants that can make work difficult, especially if they get on your hands. Good safety gloves will have a coating that’s water and oil resistant.

It’s not only liquids that you need protection from though; vibrating machines can do harm to your nerve endings. While plenty of trades operate the machinery without gloves, long-term exposure will cause irreversible damage. Impact gloves are your best bet for protection; they’ll reduce vibrations from machines that operate above 50 – 100 Hertz.

 

  • It fits

Safety gloves should fit your hand to the point where it feels like it was molded on. Gloves are not meant to slip or feel loose. Your hands are comfortable and they aren’t slipping in the gloves.
