Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Workwear specialist, Supertouch, has expanded its product range with the introduction of new line of electrical insulation gloves.
The low voltage Class 00 and Class 0 gloves, manufactured by Safeline®, use cement-dipped natural rubber to facilitate dextrous, ergonomic and resilient hand protection. Complementing Supertouch’s extensive range of safety gloves, the new additions are available in sizes M-2XL.
The cement dipping manufacturing technique enables the gloves to be produced as thin as possible, improving both dexterity and feel for the wearer, especially when undertaking intricate tasks.
Serving to protect against a variety of hazards, the gloves have attained an RC rating – meaning they resist contaminants such as acids, o-zone, low temperatures and crucially, oils. This sets them apart from their AZC-rated counterparts which are less effective at resisting oils and may require disposal if this occurs.
Matt Rushton, Head of Commercial at Supertouch, told us: “In line with growing demand for electrical vehicles and the evolving needs of the battery manufacturing industry, we’ve expanded our range of third-party gloves to offer our customers the best choice when it comes to sourcing hand protection against electrical hazards. Safeline® insulated electricial gloves are suitable for use across a range of industries working with low voltages including, automotive, utilities, construction, communications, and machinery.”
Designed with ergonomics in mind, the unique ‘hand at rest’ shape minimises hand fatigue, helping workers maintain productivity in labour-intensive industries. The flared cuff design also allows room for user clothing to offer full hand and arm protection.
Mr Rushton concludes: “In potentially hazardous operating environments, effective hand protection is crucial to mitigating risks and safeguarding employees. By providing a durable, cost-effective and ergonomic range of insulated gloves, we’re committed to making our customers’ working lives safer and easier.”
