Different types of gloves

Gloves should be chosen based on what is suitable to meet the needs and the working environment that you are in.

Protective gloves for mechanical risks

It is important to choose work gloves that are carefully selected to fit the current work environment or task being performed. Work gloves have a variety of properties, and below we describe two needs.

Thin work gloves, flexible and supple

With thin work gloves, you maintain your fingertip sensitivity while still getting adequate protection for your hands. With these gloves, you get both good grip, feel, and a tight fit. These are better suited for finesse work than heavy-duty work.

Heavy-duty work gloves, durable models that withstand tough use

Heavy-duty gloves can withstand tougher use. The priority and emphasis are on protection and durability. Heavy-duty work gloves are made of materials selected with these properties in mind. Wear them out and keep your hands healthy.

Cut-resistant gloves

Choose a glove with cut resistance when working with sharp objects. Steel edges, knives, glass, and other items are unpleasant to work with if you don't have the right gloves.

Welding and heat protection gloves

There is no shortcut to protecting your hand from a 1200°C welding flame. The outer and inner materials and lining in the gloves must be of the highest quality. Flexibility, feel, and good mobility should not be forgotten as it is important to still maintain fingertip sensitivity and productivity.

Waterproof gloves

We cannot control the weather - but we can control our clothing. Warm and dry hands are always preferred, whether you work outside in the rain or perform work in wet environments. There are both water-resistant and waterproof models.

Insulated gloves

Insulated gloves are designed to keep your hands warm on all cold days of the year. Despite the lining and tough materials, the gloves should be as flexible as possible. The material should be pliable and the lining as thin as possible, without losing focus on heat retention.

Chemical protection and disposable gloves

Sometimes it is something as trivial as soap that your hands need protection from, and sometimes much worse things that can both corrode and cause serious harm. A chemical protection or disposable glove provides you with adequate protection at the level you need. Choosing the right chemical protection is one of the most important and perhaps difficult aspects when it comes to gloves.

In our chemical protection tables, we provide a recommendation for which material and which glove provides the best protection against different types of chemicals. Every year there are numerous new chemicals. If there is any doubt about the choice of chemical protection gloves, it is always better to contact us.

All companies that use and handle chemicals must, according to European law, have safety data sheets for the chemicals they handle in their business. These safety data sheets contain information about CAS numbers and concentrations. With access to this information, we can then provide a more precise recommendation and also talk about how long the glove protects against certain chemicals.

Leisure gloves

These gloves are tailored for leisure activities. The need can be insulated, airy, or waterproof.
