cut-resistant-gloves

Glove ratings can be a useful piece of information when it comes to selecting the right gloves for you.  However, the key is to pay attention to the right glove rating when choosing a glove that is right for your specific job.  There are several tests for work gloves that determine the ratings, but which rating is the most important for your task, the test for cut, punctures, abrasion or dexterity?  Reviewing the test standards for safety gloves can give you a crash course in selecting the perfect glove for your workplace.

For cut, the test is simple.  ANSI uses a sharp metal blade that moves across the glove material until it cuts through.  The ratings for cut range from 0 to 5, 0 for less than 200 grams and 5 for over 3500 grams.

Thinsulate products, like Thinsulate insulated boots are designed to keep you warm, but not overheat. The technology behind this is as follows: Thinsulate fiber is thinner than polyester and the gaps between the fibers allow moisture to escape, which actually help you to retain the heat produced by your own body. It provides two times the insulation of a “duck down” and is not nearly as heavy.
