Safe s.r.l. produces and certifies directly with its own brands a wide range of work gloves, aimed at eliminating – or at least considerably reducing – the risk of possible injuries.
The range proposed includes, among others:
- Cut resistant gloves
- Gloves for food use
- Gardening gloves
- Heat resistant gloves
All work gloves produced by Safe s.r.l. – not only do they safeguard that very precious work tool that is the hands – but at the same time, allow the user to be able to carry out his task without limitations, allowing him to perform every movement, from the most dangerous to the most precise and technical.
Work gloves produced by Safe s.r.l. they are also compliant with the current European regulations on the subject, including UNI EN 420: 2010, relating to general requirements and test methods, UNI EN 388: 2017, relating to protective gloves against mechanical risks, the UNI EN 407: 2004, relating to protective gloves against thermal risks (heat and / or fire), UNI EN 511: 2006, relating to protective gloves against cold and UNI EN 16523-1: 2015, relating to determination of the resistance of materials to the permeation of chemical products.
As regards the materials, Safe s.r.l offers work gloves made of materials of natural or synthetic origin, therefore leather gloves, rubber gloves, cotton gloves, among others.
Leather is the material most used in the production of work gloves against mechanical risks. Resistant, flexible, natural and breathable, it has the additional advantage of lasting over time, guaranteeing excellent dexterity and high protection. It is divided into two types: grain and split leather. Grain leather gloves combine softness and waterproofing with the highest level of resistance to tearing; Split leather gloves are a guarantee of perspiration, combined with natural fire retardant properties and mechanical resistance.
Rubber gloves can be made with materials of natural origin such as latex – whose antibacterial and antifungal properties make it perfect for use in the sanitary, chemical and cleaning sectors – or of synthetic origin, such as nitrile, which is a fiber generally used as an alternative to latex, since its properties are increasingly similar to the latter; compared to latex, however, it has the additional advantage of not causing allergic reactions. Nitrile is very resistant to chemicals and, to a certain extent – to cuts – and is mainly used in laboratories and other areas exposed to chemical and biological risks.
Finally, cotton gloves are used in works where special and mandatory safety measures must not be respected.
