Protective Gloves For Engineering
SHOWA offers consumers a wide variety of engineering gloves to choose from.
Working as an engineer in just about any industry puts individuals at a significantly higher rate of injury because they have to work with a variety of different materials and even have to stick their hands in large pieces of machinery. Having access to the right pair of engineering gloves is an absolute must; however, not all gloves are created the same, and defining the “right pair” will rely heavily on their intended application.
What Should You Be Looking for in a Set of Engineering Gloves?
Engineering gloves aren’t your standard single-use glove. Here’s what you need to know.
Engineering gloves are used to not only prevent workers from potential exposure to various chemicals and lubricants while on the field. They are also used to help protect the wearer’s hands (as well as their wrist and arms in some applications) from cuts, lacerations, and even burns – again, depending on the intended application.
For instance, those working in and/or around metal may require the use of a heavier duty, cut resistant glove, where others may require an engineering glove that is more chemical resistant to prevent their skin from contamination by certain chemicals used within the workplace, which can later lead to burns or other skin irritations.
