Selecting the Right Protective Glove
Each job application and environment requires a different degree of mechanical protection, dexterity and grip. Use this information to help determine which glove provides the right performance for your needs.
Provide a balance of grip, oil resistance and precision handling for varied applications that demand increased versatility.
Consider your need for ‘touch’ and dexterity and whether a lighter, thinner glove can help you work more efficiently without compromising safety.

General warehouse and yard work
Assembly and handling of nuts, bolts and screws
Extended periods of wear, abrasive materials or high levels of dust and dirt may require a more durable glove, while sacrificing some dexterity.

Provide high levels of cut protection for applications where users control, handle or assemble materials with sharp edges
Often, the root cause of a cut injury is not a sharp object, but a lack of grip or purchase. Consider the tasks and environment and consider whether wet, oily, or dry grip needs may be a factor.
Metal fabrication and handling
General plant and site maintenance work
MEDIUM OR HIGH CUT PROTECTION?
For cut protection, more is not always better. Touch, dexterity and comfort are often sacrificed when the highest levels of cut protection are designed in a glove. A thicker glove can help reduce hand fatigue, which can lead to cut injuries.
Handling panels, hoods and other sharp-edged materials
Sheet metal handling and finishing
Handling slitter blades and utility knives
