Whether in the workshop, on the construction site, in the garden or in the hobby cellar. Work gloves are an important part of any workwear. Depending on the material, they offer protection against chemicals, heat or other sources of danger. In addition, work gloves are extremely abrasion-resistant due to their coating and ensure a high level of grip when working. The protection of the hands is very important, especially in craft activities. But especially in crafts or in the workshop, you do not want to be restricted or minimally restricted in your freedom of movement, because you often have to work very fine motor skills and the fingertip feeling must not be missing. Nothing worse than a clumsy glove with which it is difficult to hold a screw or to set a mark. Nowadays, there are suitable gloves for a wide range of activities that offer you maximum protection and also optimum freedom of movement and feeling.
The right work glove for your work
Special gloves are available for a wide range of applications and designs, such as welding gloves, chemical protection gloves and many other assembly and safety gloves. For gardening, there are special gardening gloves, which are usually made of fabric or leather. These are often relatively inexpensive, but do not necessarily protect against heat, cold or mechanical impact. For logistical activities, simple work gloves are often sufficient, which in the inexpensive version are usually made of sturdy fabric and ensure slip resistance through small rubber studs. The higher quality variants are often made of leather, which offers even better protection against injuries and bruising. If you handle chemicals, you should equip yourself with special chemical protective gloves, which are made of latex, rubber or neoprene and are liquid-repellent. However, pay close attention to the type of chemical you are dealing with! There are also special gloves for the electrical sector, which are also mostly made of latex and protect you from electric shocks. Here, the specification of the maximum voltage values must be observed.
Observe the specifications of the European standard
In some cases, the use of work gloves is also required by law. You should pay attention to the European standards (EN) when choosing. For example, EN 407 specifies the requirements for thermal stress (heat) and EN 1082 - 1 specifies the requirements for cut protection by hand knives. When buying, make sure you choose the appropriate EN for your field of activity.
The high-quality materials such as nitrile, leather, rubber or natural latex ensure a high level of safety from injuries to your hands. Of course, you can also use, for example, welding gloves for other activities where there may be a high heat load. The selection of gloves is wide and you have the opportunity to choose exactly the right glove for your work.

When choosing the right workwear, you should not compromise and pay attention to high quality. Your safety or that of your employees has the highest priority. With so much choice, it is often not easy to find the right work glove for the job. Whether nitrile or latex, rubber or leather, which size or color you should choose can often become a challenge. It depends very much on the field of application in which you use the protective gloves and what requirements are placed on them. Is it important that the protective gloves are particularly tear-resistant or is the focus more on the coating or should they be particularly abrasion-resistant?
