Sizing Information Of The BODYGUARDs GL897 Black Nitrile Disposable Gloves
Wearing the correct sized glove is essential to ensure safety and comfort. If gloves are too small they may be stretched, reducing protection and making them more likely to tear. If gloves are too large they can be pulled off by machinery or even pull the hand into moving machinery. Ill-fitting gloves will also greatly reduce dexterity and cause fatigue. European Standard EN420 sets out general requirements for sizing. To determine the size of glove required, measure the circumference of the dominant hand above the thumb and below the fingers, as shown in the diagram. This can then be referenced to the table below.

In order to select the correct size of safety glove, simply measure across your palm at the point indicated in the picture. Then compare your measurement with the chart below to ensure that you select the correct size of glove for your hand.
We would recommend using a tape measure or ruler to get the right measurement. Our measurements are based on centimetres.
Where your measurement falls on the boundary of two sizes, we would recommend selecting the larger of the two sizes for a comfortable fit. However, if you would specifically like your gloves to be a closer fit, perhaps for work that requires fine movements, select the smaller of the two sizes.
