For The Oil And Gas Trade

The U.S. made range of Kong safety gloves have been specifically designed by the Ironclad team visiting oil platforms to consult closely with workers as to their daily challenges. Among the factors that drove the research into this was that fact that 70% of injuries were to the hands.

Now available in more than six different job-specific models like cold weather, cut-resistant, super dexterity and impact-protected; these are among the very best safety gloves Aberdeen that any worker can have with terrific value for money.

Impact And Cut Resistant

Impacts to the metacarpal area of the back of the hands are reduced by 80% when using the classic Kong original hand protection gloves and abrasion resistance on the palms area is greatly enhanced when compared to normal synthetic leather.

We have included interesting videos on these impact gloves showing the impressive cut-resistant qualities and the impact testing processes that they have been submitted to.
