Importance Of Cut Proof Gloves And Puncture Proof Gloves

For anyone working with tools, machinery, medical needles and kitchen implements, gloves can go some way to protecting the hands from cuts and abrasions. However, these occupations put gloves through a considerable amount of wear and tear that could damage the gloves, lessening their protection. Provide your workers with cut and puncture resistant gloves that have increased resistance to sharp tools. The chances of injury are reduced, and as the gloves will not need replacing so frequently, they make a cost-effective option.

Cut Proof Gloves And Puncture Proof Gloves Buying Guide

All our gloves are designed to be comfortable to wear and to give complete protection without inhibiting the wearer’s dexterity.

Cut-resistant gloves and puncture-resistant gloves come in three main types:

1) Metal mesh gloves – These are built with stainless steel and are perfect for food-related procedures.

2) Cut and sewn gloves – Full or palm lining are constructed with pieces of cut-resistant materials, which are sewn together.

3) Seamless knitted gloves – Made from durable materials, such as high-performance polyethylene, para-aramid fibres such as Kevlar, steel fibre, and fibreglass yarns, they are knitted in one piece on a 10- or 13-gauge flat knitting machine and coated with solid or foamed polyurethane, latex or nitrile.

Resistance To Puncturing

Our gloves will meet or surpass EN 388 standards, with a number from 1-4 which represents puncture resistance (20, 60, 100 or 150 newtons of force).

Resistance To Blade Cuts

They'll also have a similar EN 388 rating for blade resistance, the 1-5 rating represents the cycles at a constant speed required to cut through (1.2, 2.5, 5, 10 or 20).

Complimentary Properties

Many of the gloves will offer some resistance against heat, and we also have food gloves that will help maintain hygiene in food handling environments, while still protecting the hands from knives and peelers. For mechanical work where the presence of oil and grease is likely to cause a hazard, we have rubber-coated gloves, while metallic mesh cut gloves provide very high resistance to cuts. If you have any queries on which cut and puncture resistant gloves are best for your workplace, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Areas where tools, knives, medical implements and machinery are used need a careful safety strategy to ensure everyone working there understands how to keep themselves safe. You can use our hand protection signs to remind everyone using those tools and machinery that they must wear cut and puncture resistant gloves.

Taking care of your staff by providing cut and puncture resistant gloves and other protective gear is good workplace management. Employees who know they are well protected can focus on their tasks without distraction, thereby increasing their efficiency. With puncture resistant gloves proving to be an effective measure to protect the hands from cuts, abrasions and needle injuries, purchasing them is an important step you can take to increase workplace safety.
