Why Choose Thermal Builders Gloves
5 July 2018
Working through the winter in cold conditions increases the risk of injury and illness, and may lead to a major loss in productivity. This ultimately will cost you money, either through unfinished projects, time spent off work or through the loss of a job. Thankfully we have a wide range of gloves that are used specifically for building in cold, wet conditions.
Thermal Builders Gloves boost performance in wintry conditions
You might be content with your gloves that are built for building, with their high dexterity and mechanical protection. You might not want to sacrifice this high level of safety and grip over a glove that offers warmth. If you are wondering Why Choose Thermal Builders Gloves, we've created this short article to demonstrate the pros and cons of thermal builders gloves, which ones we consider to be the best, and show you why they should be an essential item in any builder's toolkit.
Why Thermal Builders Gloves
The main reason to buy some thermal builders gloves is simply to boost your productivity. Cold conditions can make your hands painful, slow down motor control and make you shiver. This isn't good and can lead to you dropping something heavy, taking you longer to complete tasks and negatively impacting your moral. If your hands are warm and comfortable, then you're likely to be enjoying your job a little bit more, and doing your job quicker.
Having cold hands is a threat to yourself and others and can lead you to drop objects. It isn't true that thermal gloves lack the grip or mechanical protection of non-thermal gloves; after all, they are built for work in tough, wintry conditions. Plenty of our wide range of building thermal gloves have impressive EN 388 scores that can rival any other non-thermal glove. Furthermore, flexibility and dexterity are qualities to which thermal gloves are well accustomed, ensuring that you can carry heavy materials easily and safely.
Comfort is crucial in dark, cold and wet conditions, and our builders thermal gloves offer waterproof designs with fleece interior linings to ensure that your hands are cushioned with warmth. Ideal for wintry work, thermal builders gloves offer exceptional comfort during work, and if you're comfortable you're probably working harder too. Safer, more comfortable and productivity boosting, thermal builders gloves are a must have during winter.
