Choosing Heat Proof Gloves

We have put together a selection of welding and heat-resistant gloves suitable for a range of different jobs involving heat that are compliant with the EN 407 glove standard. However, you will need to make sure you find the appropriate ones for the specific jobs your employees are doing. These gloves provide varying levels of protection and are designed with different secondary priorities such as flexibility, grip and resistance to other types of hazard.

All the gloves you find here are designed to be comfortable, because your workers should not have to put up with chafing and cannot afford to be distracted when doing potentially dangerous work. Individual needs vary, however, and it is a good idea to discuss any allergy issues with employees before making your choices.

Protection/Flexibility Trade-off

As with many types of protective workwear, there is inevitably some compromise between protection and flexibility. The toughest of our heat-resistant gloves can provide short-term protection even in direct contact with molten metal, but they are quite stiff. For tasks where employees are in close contact with heat, but not at risk of being splashed or otherwise exposed to hot materials, more lightweight options such as Honeywell Jersey Gloves are available which make it easier to perform complex tasks.

As a rule, our toughest heat-resistant gloves also provide the best padding, but we stock gloves that are padded in various ways, so you will need to think about where your employees are likely to need padding most, if they need it at all. It can protect hands from bruising during the repeated performance of heavy manual tasks and reduce the risk of punctures.

All the gloves in our selection are made from high-quality materials and should enjoy a long life, but like all safety gear they should be checked regularly to make sure their integrity has not been compromised.

As they are made from a variety of different materials, these gloves offer differing levels of protection from water, oil and mildly-corrosive substances. You should consider the probability of exposure to substances like this and how you will clean and look after the gloves when making your choices.

The gloves we stock also vary in the grip they provide and in where that grip is located. Some, like the Ansell Activarmr® are textured all over and allow a lot of flexibility, making it possible to grip things at odd angles. Others are only really designed to grip with the fingers, while some allow for a whole-hand grip, such as on a shovel. You will need to work out what is most practical for your purposes.

Some employers decide to buy multiple types of gloves for different purposes, but if this is your approach, make sure employees only change gloves at a safe distance from heat sources.
