ATG: Intelligent Glove Solutions
Thursday, 20 June 2019
In 2019, technology is at the heart of everything we do. Whether you work in assembly and construction, or food retail and packing, chances are that your profession has been transformed by technology in the last few years. If technology is changing the way we do work, why shouldn't it change the way that we protect our hands too?
ATG Gloves and their range of Maxi Gloves focus on four key areas; flexibility, cut resistance, dry handling and chemical resistance. By focusing on these four areas and developing technology that increases safety and productivity in these four areas only, ATG have developed a range of gloves that offer reliability, quality, affordability, productivity and best of all, protection. This article looks into ATG Gloves, explaining how they've used technology to take over the glove industry.
ATG: Technology First
ATG use the tagline "Intelligent Glove Solutions" because they value the importance of not focusing solely on the glove, but on the technology behind it too. Ever since ATG were formed, ATG have developed technology that has a focus on three things:
By focusing on technology first, ATG could create the technology that would put their future gloves ahead of the rest of the market. From here came a focus on gloves, with ATG developing their 'proRange' that each used new technology to offer unparalleled qualities. The four different ranges of gloves include:
Why Trust ATG Technology?
We do a lot of talking up ATG and their technology. So why should you trust us? Well, below we've listed the different technology used in ATG Gloves, what they are and why they are so successful.
As said previously, ATG focus their technology around the three areas of comfort, performance and hand care. Within comfort, their technology includes AIRtech and ERGOtech, that offer breathability and reduced hand fatigue respectively. Any ATG Gloves that boast either of these technologies will have a focus on comfort and usability, making them ideal for handling based tasks.
Second up is performance, and most gloves produced by ATG will include either CUTtech, GRIPtech, LIQUItech, DURAtech or THERMtech technology. What these different technologies offer is fairly explanatory, and because of this ATG's range of cut resistant, grip, thermal, waterproof and durable gloves are some of the best around.
The last focus was on Hand Care, with all of ATG's safety gloves being dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health alliance. Certified by Oeko-Tex, their skin-friendly gloves are generally REACH Compliant, making these gloves the must have for anyone concerned with the health of their skin. This is particularly ideal for people who work in chemicals or in the cold, as those elements can cause hands plenty of damage.
