Whether you're looking for gloves for use in health and social care settings, for food manufacturing, handling or service, or just for general use in the home, you're likely to find the glove that you need in the Hand Safe range. Here's all you need to know about Hand Safe examination gloves.
COMPLIANCE WITH SAFETY REGULATIONS
All examination gloves in the Hand Safe line comply with Medical Devices Directives 93/42/EEC Class 1 (2007/47/EC) and EN455 parts 1, 2, 3 and 4, and are manufactured in accordance with European Personal Protective Equipment Directive 89/686/EEC and CE Category: Cat III (0086). This means that they are approved for (single use) medical application. Some gloves in the Hand Safe range have also received approval for contact with food (Food approval EC1935/2004), so they are safe to use in food manufacturing, preparation, distribution, handling and service.
Durability You Can Trust
All Hand Safe gloves have received Force at Break testing and are rated accordingly. Measured in Newtons, Force at Break refers to the amount of force that it takes to tear the product. Most Hand Safe latex, nitrile and vinyl gloves have a Force at Break rating of 6 Newtons, which means that they are durable and fairly tear resistant.
All sterile Hand Safe gloves are treated with gamma irradiation. This is a safe and reliable method of sterilisation, which has been used to sterilise disposable medical equipment for over 50 years.
Hand Safe Vinyl Examination Gloves
Manufactured from a high-quality PVC polymer resin, Hand Safe vinyl examination gloves have a greater degree of stretch than other vinyl examination gloves. At the same time, they are extremely durable and highly dependable. Completely latex free, Hand Safe vinyl gloves are a safe alternative for individuals with latex allergy and those with sensitive skin.
If you're looking for soft and flexible latex-free examination gloves, the Hand Safe GN66 Powder-Free Stretch Vinyl Examination Gloves are a good choice. The GN66 Gloves include a beaded cuff for greater durability and easy donning, have a smooth finish for improved comfort, are resistant to Sodium hydroxide (40%), and are approved for use with (non-fatty) food.
Hand Safe Latex Examination Gloves
Hand Safe's latex gloves are manufactured from natural rubber latex, which gives them both incredible durability and impressive flexibility. They are low in latex protein, as well as low in residual chemicals to reduce the risk of allergic reaction and contact dermatitis associated with these chemicals. Some Hand Safe latex gloves are sterilised, making them appropriate for surgical procedures.
One such product is the Hand Safe GSFP Sterile Surgical Latex Gloves, which feature an ergonomic design to maximise user comfort. With enhanced tactility, the GSFP Gloves provide a secure grip for procedures where precision is of the utmost importance.
Hand Safe Nitrile Examination Gloves
Hand Safe nitrile gloves are manufactured from a nitrile butadiene polymer that gives them impressive tear resistance and enhanced durability. At the same time, they are soft and comfortable, and as a result do not inhibit movement or reduce tactile sensitivity. Latex free and low in residual chemicals, Hand Safe nitrile gloves are safe for users with latex allergy and those with sensitive skin.
One of the toughest products in the Hand Safe line of nitrile examination gloves, the Hand Safe GN99 Nine Newton Nitrile Examination Gloves, have a Force at Break rating of 9 Newtons, meaning that they're tough and dependable. At the same time, these particular gloves provide exceptional flexibility and comfort, reducing hand fatigue during extended wear.
Hand Safe Hybrid Gloves
The Hand Safe range of examination gloves also includes some hybrid gloves, such as the Hand Safe GN70 Powder-Free Hybrid Examination Gloves. Manufactured from a combination of Polyvinyl chloride and Acrylonitrile butadiene for superior flexibility and comfort, the GN70 Gloves are a great alternative to latex examination gloves.
