How To Choose Quality Impact Resistant Gloves

Varieties of Protective Gloves

Impact resistant gloves are produced by vulcanizing rubber compounds and fulfill an important function in many types of work activities. So, working in electrical installations under voltage is unthinkable without rubber dielectric gloves. In the chemical industry, acid-alkali-resistant elastic rubber gloves are an important protective agent. Moreover, you cannot do without rubber gloves in medicine, food, and fish processing industries.

Glove selection criteria

For gardening or renovation work in your own home, it is enough to purchase cotton gloves with embossed latex coating on the palm of your hand. They let the air pass well; hands do not sweat in them all day.

You cannot stay in them all day, since they do not allow air to pass through at all. Working with toxic chemicals and petroleum products requires special hand protection - here you will need products with oil and petrol resistant impregnation. Labors wear impact resistant gloves with heat-resistant lining inside.

The second criterion for selection is size compliance. It is necessary to choose gloves with the most comfortable length. In addition, there are Russian and international size marking of products.

When taking measurements, you must clench your hand into a fist. International markings are in letter format (X, L, S, XL, etc.) and the width of the palm is in inches.

There are also such selection criteria as touch and comfort. Moreover, they also need to consider when choosing gloves.

How to use impact resistant gloves?

When performing this or that type of work, you should have a spare pair of gloves with you.

Gloves are personal protective equipment. In order to avoid infectious diseases of the skin of the hands, do not use other people's work gloves.


When the autumn wind blows in the trees, or when the first snow of winter paints the landscape white, you need a good pair of gloves or mittens to keep your hands warm. Similarly, here we guide you to find the right protection for your hands.

When choosing gloves, it is incredibly important that you base your choices. Furthermore, this also applies when you have to choose how your hands and fingers should keep warm. There is a big difference between using a pair of knitted mittens for the autumn walks, a ski glove for the winter snow adventures or maybe a thin glove for the running round or the bike ride.

Heat Resistant Gloves

In our range of gloves you will find heat resistant gloves and impact resistant gloves. The gloves can come with or without waterproof membrane.

A membrane is the same as a filter. The filters are waterproof in one direction, but allow moisture to penetrate in the other direction. In this way, the moisture can get out through the garment without water being able to enter from the outside.

Thumb gloves are also available in several different variants, e.g. made of leather only or combined with synthetic materials. Just like the gloves, there are also the mittens with and without membrane.

Three-finger impact resistant gloves

There are gloves and mittens, but there is actually also a mixture of both - three-finger glove.

In this way, you get a good freedom of movement that you recognize from a finger glove, while you get the glove's ability to keep warm.

The hybrid

In addition to the three-finger glove, there is also another model. Here you get, so to speak, a combined thumb glove and glove.

Inner gloves

An inner glove is used - just as the name suggests - inside your "primary" gloves or mittens, but they can of course also be used independently. The task of the inner glove is to function as an extra insulating layer, and a thin inner glove can actually increase the heat by approx. 20%.

The advantage of having an inner glove inside your regular gloves and mittens is that you can easily adjust to the temperature. If you start sweating on your fingers, you can take off the outer glove and only keep the inner glove on, or you can take off the inner glove again and only keep the regular gloves on.

Should you choose impact resistant gloves?

If you do not have a tendency to freeze a lot on your fingers, impact resistant gloves is often the best option. Thanks to their design, you get good freedom of movement. However, the fingers separate and thus cannot heat each other.

If you easily get frozen fingers, it is therefore better with a pair of mittens, so that the fingers can warm each other. However, this option provides less freedom of movement.

You can possibly choose a three-fingered glove, or a combined glove and mittens, and you will get the best of both worlds. You can also consider lining the gloves / mittens a little extra with a pair of inner gloves.

Whether you choose gloves or mittens, it is important that they are warm enough, but not too warm. If this happens, they become moist and when the moisture eventually cools down, you freeze. Therefore, as I said, it is important that you think about where and what you should use your gloves / mittens for.

You may need pair of heat resistant gloves!

If you easily freeze your fingers, it is always a good idea before putting on your gloves or mittens, so that you get up the blood circulation and the heat.

If your fingers have a tendency to become frozen, you can also put a pair of hand warmers / heating pads in your gloves.

How do you find the right size?

It is of course important that your impact resistant gloves are the right size, partly so that they are not annoying to wear, but the size is also important when it comes to keeping warm.

Unfortunately, there is no exact answer on how to find the right size of gloves and mittens. Usually it is simply a matter of trying. The rule of thumb, however, is that they must not sit too tight, so that there is no air around the fingers, because then you freeze more easily.

Conversely, the gloves / mittens should not be too large, because then there is too much space that cannot be heated. Do not forget to consider whether you should also have room for an inner glove in your gloves / mittens.
