Cut Resistant Gloves
Cut resistant gloves are a must have in any work environment where the risk of cuts and abrasions are rife. These gloves are specially designed to protect your hands from potentially harmful cuts when working with sharp tools. Cut resistant gloves are categorised into cut and sewn, seamless knitted gloves and metal mesh gloves. The variations determine the level at which the gloves are sever resistant, from only mild slash resistance to completely puncture proof.
Our selection of cut resistant gloves mainly focuses on cut and sewn gloves that are typically constructed out of abrasion resistant materials or lined with a layer of cut resistant fabric. We also have various types of seamless knitted cut resistant gloves. The seamlessness is created by a flat knitting machine and provides a more uniformed finish.
The level of durability and cut protection is delivered by specialised material used in the construction of these garments such as Para-aramid, high performance Polyethylene and PVA, fibreglass and steelfibre yarns. These cut resistant gloves are then covered by Latex, Nitrile or polyurethane for added protection against possible abrasions.
Thick cut resistant gloves are generally woven with a 10gauge sewing machine and offer much more protection, although the thickness of the fabric greatly decreases the dexterity of the glove. To counter that, the thinner more nimble cut resistant gloves are knitted on 13 gauge machine, thus giving it a thinner weave which retains most of the fabric’s nimbleness. These cut resistant gloves are later coated with a synthetic or natural rubber substance for additional protective qualities.
Our collection of cut resistant gloves is made by reputable safety clothing manufacturers such as North, Hex Armour, Marigold, Skytech and many more. We have everything from polyethylene coated seamless gloves to heavy threaded cut and sewn gloves.
