Our Best Wood Burner Stove Gloves 2020

Friday, 6 December 2019  |  Sam

Wood burners are a fantastic source of warmth in the cold winter months. By sucking huge volumes of air up the flue, wood burners ensure your rooms will be both comfortably warm and well ventilated. Not only are wood burning stoves an infinitely cosier source of warmth, but they use a renewable heat source, and are also much more cost-effective than gas and electricity. 


The Right Gloves For Handling a Wood Burning Stove

Yes, wood burning stoves are excellent, but handling a wood burner requires caution. A live and burning flame in your home needs to be handled in a correct and efficient manner, and the first and primary step to ensuring this is getting yourself a pair of protective gloves.


What Makes A Good Pair Of Wood Burning Gloves?

Here at SafetyGloves.co.uk, we believe we're well suited to the task of finding you the right pair. To get the ball rolling, let's take a look at the criteria that make a decent pair of wood burning stove gloves.

  • Heat Resistance: First and foremost, you need a pair of gloves that will protect your extremities from burns. Not only will a burning log cause burns, but burns can also be acquired from the hot exterior of the wood burner.
  • Flexibility: Quality wood burner gloves need to be dexterous and flexible. Gloves lacking in these qualities can result in serious accidents i.e. dropping a burning piece of wood or a hot piece of iron.
  • Durability: A good pair of wood burning stove gloves should be strong and durable, being able to withstand long and strenuous use. Gloves can be made from supposedly retardant materials, only to fall apart after just a few weeks.
  • Extend Past Your Wrists: Gloves that extend past the wrists prevent burns to your wrists and lower arms.
  • The Grippier the Better: Wood burner gloves should also have a particularly powerful grip. This ties in with our earlier point about flexibility (without grip, you could cause an accident). A flexible and grippy glove can never go wrong.

We know it might be overwhelming trying to find a pair that fits the above criteria, and that's why we've compiled a list of gloves to protect your hands while using a wood burner. Taking into account everything you might need from a pair of wood burning stove gloves, here are Our Best Wood Burner Stove Gloves 2020.
