Boost Your Protection with XT Gloves and Glove Savers

Do you require additional protection for your next welding job? At Elliotts, we know that sometimes you need just a little bit more, so in response to this need, we have devised two different ways, to further protect yourself and/or your workers: XT gloves, and Glove Savers.

 

When dealing with hot welding substances, defence from the spatter and dross is required. In this case, the industry standards 406mm glove leaves your upper aum unprotected, which can lead to ruining your shirts or worse, personal injury. With our XT range of welding gloves, you can experience full arm protection, all the way up to the shoulder (680mm).

 

A Glove Saver is designed to do just what its name says: save your gloves. They slip over existing gloves to provide additional heat protection when required. By wearing a Glove Saver, you provide additional radiant heat protection to the back of the hand, as well as additional abrasion and wear protection to the palm area

In some industries, such as the Oil, Gas, and Mining industries, impact injuries to the top of the hand are particularly prevalent, however, the risk is still existent in many general manual handling situations as well. When working with hazardous tools such as tongs, wrenches, winches, and wire ropes, as well as building materials such as bricks, timber, machinery and specific equipment, the risk of injury is always present.
