The hand protection range specifically designed for the food industry
In 2011 Ansell set out to better serve the food industry and offer protection from the unique hazards that food processing and food preparation employees encounter. The VersaTouch® range of food industry gloves were released in 2012 with specific features for managing cut and heat related risks, a common cause of injury in the food processing workplace. VersaTouch® gloves feature specialised grip zones, thermal insulation, added cut resistance on the fingertip areas prone to cuts and meet EU standards regarding direct contact with food.
VersaTouch® gloves utilise a number of innovations to improve wearer comfort, increase protection levels and improve the overall functionality of the glove.
Ansell’s Polar Bear® Cut-Resistance Technology uses advanced material technology in conjunction with advanced spinning and knitting processes to deliver cut protection in the areas you need them most; the fingers and hands. Not only does Polar Bear® provide protection but it is also meets EU standards for safe food handling.
Dyneema® is a revolutionary, long molecular chained fibre that provides excellent cut and abrasion resistant properties. Dyneema® fibres are 15 times stronger than steel on a weight vs weight basis and is so light it can float on water. Ansell gloves incorporate both Dyneema® and Dyneema® Diamond technologies which enable gloves to be considerably lighter and thinner than other gloves with the same cut protection rating. Dyneema® ccan be found in gloves from the HyFlex®, ActivArmr® and VersaTouch® brands.
