Sperian unveils new range of protective glovesPosted on 14/08/2009
A new range of protective gloves has been unveiled by one of the world's leading safety equipment manufacturers.
Sperian is behind the new Electrosoft Latex Insulating products, which are created specifically for workers who have a high amount of contact with electrical equipment.
Creating using a natural latex base, the safety gloves can protect wearers from working voltages between 500V and 36,000V, reports Australian Mining.
The handwear is designed to offer workers a comfortable ease of movement alongside their high protective qualities.
Rival manufacturer of personal protective equipment, Ronco, recently claimed that latext gloves are the 'best performing' type of hand protection available to workers for a range of reasons.
Discussing the products while launching new and improved versions of its own gloves, the company said that the items perform well in terms of 'barrier protection, flexibility, strength and touch sensitivity', while newer versions also cut allergy risks linked to them.
