No thanks, I don't want to prevent hand injuries.
We spoke with our Territory Managers, and asked which gloves are perfect for the Pulp & Paper industry. Well, they shed some light on what works and what doesn’t. It’s no secret that workers in this sector need strong, dexterous gloves with a high ANSI cut level – to protect their hands from the threat of pinches, cuts, and bruises while opening large boxes brimming with paper products, so here are our top picks for the Pulp and Paper industry.
This award-winning pair of gloves is fantastic for the Pulp & Paper sector for a variety of reasons. In addition to the high level of coverage and protection that these gloves provide, our customers also rave about how comfortable they are to wear; they boast a bare hand feeling, which means that your employees will stay protected without feeling like their PPE is affecting their job performance. And, the nitrile palm coating allows for an exceptional level of grip; even the most slippery of objects and surfaces won’t stand a chance.
For those working in a drier Pulp & Paper facility where chemicals are present, you may also want to check out the sister pair of the above style: our STAFGPU gloves. While these gloves offer many of the same benefits as the ones above, they differ in that they also feature a non-shedding polyurethane coating. Perfect for added protection in facilities in which contamination is regularly a hazard.
You might not have thought about hi-viz in pulp and paper, but here’s why they work. Making sure your employees are wearing their PPE much easier – you can see them from a mile away! The polyurethane palm coating will give you a grip that you can always count on. Since they’re part of our TenActiv™ series, this means that along with providing you with a high level of comfort and flexibility, these gloves are incredibly durable and long-lasting.
If you’re in search of a pair of gloves that are not as bright but still offer many of the same benefits, our: STAGHVPN gloves will do the trick. The difference is that they’re a bit duller in color than the previous pair.
They also feature a different type of foam coating on the palms: high-performing micropore nitrile. Due to this coating, this style is fantastic for people who desire a longer-lasting glove, that will withstand high amounts of abrasion, and won’t break down as quickly when coming in contact with chemicals.
Offering exceptional cut protection while still being dexterous. Made with a stainless steel/composite filament core and coated with foam nitrile, these gloves are unparalleled. With a high level of flexibility, durability, comfort, and cut resistance, these gloves are a fantastic choice for those who work in pulp and paper.
Well, there you have it – our top picks for the Pulp and Paper industry! If there’s one thing we want you to take away from this, it’s that when choosing a pair of gloves for your workplace, remember to take into consideration the three Fs: Fit, Form, and Function!
