Friday, 8 December 2017
Shield has been a leading force among PPE suppliers across Europe for many years, known for their affordable, high-quality safety gloves and disposable workwear. If you're unfamiliar with this versatile brand, read on to discover why, no matter the situation, Shield has a suitable hand safety solution.
The History of the Brand
Providing a wide variety of premium infection control products, Shield has become one of HPC Healthline's leading PPE brands. While HPC Healthline has recently merged with Polyco, this new enterprise - called Polyco Healthline - continues to produce the trusty Shield hand protection brand.
Shield Disposable Gloves
The Shield brand boasts a broad range of single-use gloves, including latex, nitrile, vinyl and hybrid gloves. Variants include powdered, lightly-powdered and powder-free gloves, as well as smooth and textured gloves.
These lightly powdered rubber latex examination gloves conform to the natural shape of the user's hand to provide protection and comfort without restricting movement. While approved for use in both the medical and food industries, these gloves can also be used in the home, garden, office, warehouse and, really, any other environment where low-risk, reliable hand protection is required.
The smooth and flexible Shield GD10s are high-quality vinyl gloves that are designed for low-risk tasks, such as home improvement, inspection, recycling, domestic cleaning and crafts. Completely free of latex and nitrile, the GD10 Gloves are a sturdy and affordable alternative for individuals with latex allergy and/or hypersensitive skin.
The GD21s are high-quality nitrile gloves with a textured surface to promote good grip. These blue disposable gloves are ideal for environments where colour-coding is used to reduce potential cross-contamination, and are easily traceable for enhanced safety in the food industry.
Shield Rubber Gloves and Gauntlets
The Shield range includes household rubber gloves, industrial-grade rubber gloves, and heavy-duty rubber gauntlets.
The Shield Rubber Glove and Gauntlet range includes:
These flexible and durable rubber latex gloves offer effective protection against germs, harsh detergents, sticky residues and dirt. A soft lining promotes user comfort so your hands don't get tired, while a textured surface helps you to keep hold of dishes and cleaning equipment in both wet and dry situations.
The Shield GI/108 XX-Long Heavy-Duty Rubber Gauntlets are designed for high-risk and heavy-duty applications. Ergonomically shaped to reduce hand fatigue, and featuring an elbow-length cuff for superior protection, the GI/108 XX-Long Heavy-Duty Rubber Gauntlets shield the hands and forearms against abrasion, scratches and some chemicals.
Shield Industrial Work Gloves
The Shield Industrial range includes hardwearing work gloves for everything from minimal-risk tasks to high-risk applications. These include the highly cut-resistant, polyurethane-coated nylon Shield GI/DC5 Cut-Resistant Polyurethane Nylon Gloves and the Shield GI/KDOT PVC-Dotted Knitted Gloves, which are cotton safety gloves with texturing on the under-side for superior grip.
