Your hands are your trade and protecting them is a priority. When working in at-height, industry, and construction the ability to use and protect your hands is an important part of your job. After all, it would be hard to do what you do every day if your hands were damaged. The job site is a dangerous place and it is our responsibility as Gear Experts® to do everything we can to help keep you safe. Our selection of hand protection includes coated gloves, cut resistance gloves, disposable gloves, economy gloves, thermal gloves, trade gloves, and glove accessories so that no matter what the job site throws at you, you can be prepared to get the job done.
What is a glove accessory? Well, our three types of glove accessories are glove grabbers, glove bags, and glove protectors. Glove grabbers are revolutionary if you tend to lose gloves, or never have a place to set them when you take them off. Our glove grabbers feature a belt clip that you simply attach to your belt. When you need to take off your gloves, just attach the gloves securely to the grabber, and BAM gloves stored and not lost.
Glove bags serve a similar purpose to glove grabbers in that they help you transport your gloves and help prevent them from getting lost. The big difference between a glove bag and a glove grabber is that the bag offers additional protection for the glove. Some specialty gloves might need to be kept out of the elements or kept dry. Glove bags can help increase the lifespan of your gloves.
Glove protectors, on the other hand, (pun intended) offer mechanical protection for rubber insulated gloves. That means that the protector is worn over the glove to offer cut resistance and protection from other harmful chemicals. The rubber insulated glove is used for electrical protection.
Coated gloves have a wide range of uses and happen to be one of our most versatile categories. Depending on the liner and dip coating, these gloves can be used for jobs ranging from industrial manufacturing to chemical resistance. Most gloves are available in a range of sizes.
Cut Resistant Gloves:
When looking at gloves one of the most important things to look at is how effective those gloves are at protecting your hands from sharp and abrasive material. That’s where cut-resistant gloves come in. The job site is no stranger to sharp edges and jagged metal - that’s why our Gear Experts® put together some of our favorite cut resistant gloves. We feature gloves ranging from ANSI A2 to A4 cut resistance and even have gloves that are compatible with your favorite touchscreen device.
ANSI recently updated their cut resistance standards - we’ve got you covered there too. Be sure to check out this blog post about the ANSI/ISEA 105-16 standard on cut protection for more information.
Disposable gloves offer single-use light hand protection from things like liquids, chemicals, and debris. As mentioned in the name, these gloves should not be used more than once. It should also be noted that while they offer some protection, they should not be used in situations where a higher caliber or specialty glove should be used.
Our selection of disposable gloves come in a range of thicknesses and both latex, latex free, powdered, and powder free versions.
Economy gloves are perfect for when the job doesn’t call for heavier duty gloves, but you still need a protective layer on your hands. These gloves are lighter and thinner, but that doesn’t mean they can’t protect your hands from dirt, dust, grime, and some chemicals.
Mother nature usually has her own plans, which means that we need to be prepared no matter what the weather brings. The last thing you want to deal with while working in cold environments is your hands freezing. Cold hands can make working difficult and waste valuable time on the job site. That’s why our Gear Experts® have put together a range of thermal gloves. Our selection of thermal gloves include a variety of styles and colors and will keep your hands warm and dry while providing optimum grip and dexterity, even on icy surfaces.
Just because the weather is cold doesn’t mean your hands have to be. Need cut resistance or the ability to use a touchscreen device with your thermal gloves on? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered there too. With ANSI cut resistance ranging from A2 to A4 and touchscreen compatible gloves we are here to help you get the job done no matter the situation.
Trade gloves are designed for the people who get the job done. With many specialized options to choose from, you’ll find the exact trade gloves you need for any application. Whether you need anti-vibration gloves, high impact gloves, climbing gloves, or fingerless gloves - we've got them all. Many of our trade gloves also offer additional benefits that not only keep you safe from harsh environments but also help reduce the effects of mother nature on the job.
Our trade gloves offer many features including water resistance, cut resistance, abrasion resistance, and weather resistance. In the cold of winter having a thermal insulated glove that also features the cut resistance you need to get the job done can be the difference between “another day in paradise” and “the worst day on the job yet”.
