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.


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.
