Monday, 22 July 2019

A long day of bricklaying can be tough on your hands, especially if you don't have the right gloves for the job. The best bricklaying gloves will prevent the frequent scrapes and scratches that handling bricks can cause, keeping you comfortable, safe and productive. To take the guesswork out of your choice, we've had our glove experts put together a list of the Best Bricklaying Gloves of 2019, providing your hands with a boost to make even the toughest bricklaying tasks a breeze.

What Should I Look for in Bricklaying Gloves?

The best gloves for bricklayers will be designed to stand up to all the hazards you'll face on the job, without hurting your performance. Here are the main things to look for:

  1. Abrasion Resistance: Bricks and building materials are highly abrasive, so your gloves must protect your hands without falling apart.
  2. Dexterity and Grip: Handling tools and bricks requires a sure grip and nimble fingers, so your gloves can't be restrictive or slippery.
  3. Cut Resistance: Protrusions are common in bricks and walls, so your gloves have to provide you with some level of protection from cuts.
  4. Comfort: Planning for your environment is key to productivity, so choose breathable gloves for the heat and warm gloves for the winter.
