Features of the product
Constructed of 4mm thick latex rubber with a good resistance to tears, punctures and abrasions. Abrasion resistant qualities of the latex ensure the gloves are durable and suitable for longer use.
Keep a high level of touch sensitivity in the palm and fingers through the glove material for better comfort and feel compared to other synthetic polymers.
Material conforms to the shape of your hand for an exceptionally secure fit that minimizes the risk of skin contact while maximizing dexterity. Available in a range of sizes to ensure the best fit for every hand.
Latex is a commonly occurring natural product, made from the sap that rubber trees produce. This sap has been used for many years in the design of products that require both flexibility and strength.
Ideal for items that must be closely fitted to the skin, such as protective gloves, latex is a reliable and useful material. Synthetic versions of the material are widely used in addition to the natural product, and both provide the same great qualities that latex is known for.
Latex gloves are well known for their use in medical facilities, such as hospitals and doctor’s surgeries. They’re also widely used in veterinary medicine, and are a must-have for dentists too. Latex gloves aren’t just for healthcare workers, though. They’re also frequently worn by those working in food production, cleaning services, childcare, manufacturing and the automotive industries.
Latex gloves provide the wearer with a whole host of different benefits, and that’s why the gloves are so commonly used in a wide range of different workplaces.
Given the strength of latex, the gloves can be made using quite thin material. This means that the wearer experiences greater touch sensitivity than they would typically gain from other forms of protective gloves. The tactile nature of the gloves makes them particularly well suited to situations where touch sensitivity is important, such as surgery for example.
Latex is incredibly flexible, and this flexibility makes it very comfortable to wear. The material is thin and stretchy, and does not restrict movement in any way. Wearers can comfortably work in latex gloves for considerable periods of time, and usually only need to remove the gloves for practical reasons such as breaks from work.
Latex gloves are widely available and provide an affordable, cost-effective solution to personal protective equipment. The gloves are disposable, meaning the risk of transmission and cross contamination is kept to a minimum, and wearers can quickly switch their gloves for a new pair as they move between different tasks.
Our range of latex gloves is available in three sizes: medium, large and extra large. The sizes vary considerably so it’s always worth measuring the hands of every wearer to determine which gloves would be the best option.
Remember, the better the fit, the more tactile and touch sensitive the gloves will be. Well fitted gloves will be more comfortable, more flexible and more reliable in terms of the overall protection that they provide.
Latex gloves provide plenty of advantages over other materials, however they are designed specifically for use with biological and water-based materials. If dangerous chemicals and oil-based solutions are being handled then it may be worth opting for blue nitrile gloves or black mamba nitrile gloves instead.
While latex gloves are incredibly flexible and ideal for situations where touch sensitivity is crucial, they are not as resistant to chemicals as some of our thicker, more specialised glove options.
