CHOOSE THE CORRECT GLOVES FOR THE JOB

Pictograms help to quickly identify the work gloves’ suitability for specific purposes. Each symbol represents a different type of hazard and the numbers underneath indicate how well the safety glove performed in tests, the higher the number the better the performance. Each of our gloves displays a symbol to indicate it’s suitability.
