Choosing Gloves With Grip

All the grip gloves we stock here at Seton are made from high-quality materials and designed to give your employees a firm grip on whatever they are working with, while protecting their hands. There are, however, important differences between the many types we offer.

Glove Texture

Wanting a firm grip does not always mean wanting to grip objects in the same way. When we are using our hands, we grip objects in all sorts of ways. Some of the grip gloves we stock are textured all over and designed to work in precisely this sort of situation, but in most situations, we find workers want to grip either with their fingers or their whole hand.

Some of our gloves are designed to put the focus on the fingers and are ideal for more delicate tasks, while others are textured across the palm and are well suited to tasks that involve lifting, pulling or pushing with the hands. The latter type includes gloves that are specially designed to resist abrasive damage so you can use them, for instance, when moving bricks or breeze blocks on a construction site.

Anti-Slip Gloves

We stock gloves designed to work in a variety of circumstances that can make a real difference. For instance, our wet grip gloves resist objects sliding even if you are working in the rain. We have others that are specially designed for working with oily objects, so the wearer can avoid dropping them no matter how slippery they are.

Grip Gloves With Extra Protection

Our grip gloves are designed to offer varying levels of hand protection. The most lightweight varieties do not provide complete protection, but they are practical for day-to-day tasks where you want to maximise dexterity. Some of our heavier gloves are padded to protect the wearer from cuts and scratches, and some can also cushion hands, preventing bruising.

Grip Glove Materials

The variety of materials used in these gloves means some are also waterproof, oil-proof or resistant to mildly corrosive chemicals, all of which can be useful in specific types of working environment. If you encounter substances like these, you will need to choose gloves you can clean easily, and we are glad to say that this is a straightforward task with most gloves in our selection. This means your employees can avoid accidentally spreading dirt when they are working.

All the gloves in our selection are designed to be comfortable and pleasant to wear, even over long periods. You will, however, need to talk to your staff about allergies so you can select materials that no individual will have a problem with. With so many to choose from, you should have no difficulty finding something suitable, even if you end up selecting multiple types for different employees and tasks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the law say about grip gloves?

Grip gloves and anti-slip gloves are an integral element of every PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) kit and uniform. They protect one of the most important, sensitive and dexterous parts of the human body – our hands! Potential injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to serious injuries, such as the loss of a finger or hand, many of which can be avoided through the use of safety gloves.

When supplying PPE for your workforce or educating workers about the kinds of PPE that are required for their work, it is important to stay up to date with the latest regulations. Regulations regarding PPE change regularly; in fact, we recently wrote a blog post concerning the EN388 glove standards that are being updated.

When deciding which types of gloves to select, you should also review the HSE’s helpful guidelines on proper skin protection in the workplace. These guidelines helpfully break down the kind of gloves that are needed based on the type of work to be performed, and the kinds of health risks and hazards that are presented in the workplace. If you would like to review the HSE’s advice and guidelines, or provide information for others, they also have a convenient pamphlet for easy reference.

What are the best grip gloves for work?

Seton provides a full range of high-performing safety gloves that are designed to provide maximum protection for workers. You will need to consider the specific needs of both your role and worksite when choosing your gloves.

For roles such as assembly and repair work, waste collection, yard work and farming, the Honeywell Dexgrip Light Work Gloves are ideal. If the worksite hazards include potential exposure to skin tears or abrasions, the Polyco Matrix P Grip Gloves and Uvex Phynomic Cut Protection Gloves are good choices. Seton also has a full range of excellent grip gloves including gloves such as the Supertouch Criss Cross PVC Gloves and Polyco Grip It SL Foam Latex Gloves.

Where should grip gloves be placed?

Grip gloves should ideally be stowed away after being cleaned and checked for any new tears, abrasions or punctures. If the gloves have been torn or punctured, it is important that they are replaced immediately, as they cannot provide the same level of protection after being damaged.

To preserve quality, grip gloves should be stored in clean, dry areas away from direct sunlight and extreme heat and cold. It is important that employees are aware of glove cleaning and storage best practices and that they are informed about the properties of the different types of grip gloves as they may need multiple pairs to suit different kinds of tasks.

It is important to have a good supply of grip gloves on hand at a worksite at all times to ensure that replacements are available in the event that a number of pairs sustain damage.
