Skytec Argon Waterproof Thermal Gloves

Designed for use in temperatures as low as -50°C, the Skytec Argon Waterproof Thermal Gloves offer insulating and thermal properties while retaining a high level of flexibility that is ideal for grabbing tools, equipment and materials. Their durable construction can protect the hands against mechanical risks too, making the gloves well suited to a wide range of cold environment tasks that range from freezer and cold store work to outdoor manual applications.

How Waterproof are the Argon Thermal Gloves?

The Skytec Gloves will keep your hands completely dry when handling wet and damp materials. The bottom half of the palm and fingers is completely waterproof, meaning that you can dip your fingers and palm into a bucket of water and your fingers will stay completely dry.

The top half of the gloves including the cuff is water resistant. You shouldn't worry as water-resistance means that your wrist and the top of your hand will still stay dry when it rains and when handling wet and damp materials.

How Warm are the Skytec Thermal Gloves?

The Skytec Argon Gloves are designed for freezing conditions, offering protection even when working in temperatures as low as -50°C. Their nylon layer is supported by a warm and snug fit that prevents cold air from escaping, making them perfect for cold outdoor work and work in simulated cold environments such as a freezer or cold store.

What Tasks are the Thermal Gloves Useful For?

The Skytec Argon Gloves are incredibly versatile, using a flexible and thin lining to ensure that the user can continue to handle tools, materials and items. As a result they are useful for a wide range of medium-risk environments where protection from the cold and wet is necessary. This includes:

  • Cold storage
  • Construction
  • Farming
  • Freezer work
  • Gardening
  • Goods handling
  • Groundworks
  • Labouring
  • Logistics
  • Manufacturing
  • Oil and gas
  • Outdoor maintenance
  • Public works
  • Scaffolding
  • Utilities
  • Warehouse
  • Window Cleaning
  • Yard work

The Skytec Gloves are professional and reliable gloves that are recommended for not just the tasks listed, but most medium-risk tasks that demands protection from the cold. If you face cold conditions at work then these gloves will do the trick, but they are so versatile that they can be used at home around the yard too.

Are They Safe to Use in Extreme Cold Conditions?

If you work in extreme cold conditions such as a freezer or if you live in a place where the temperature can drop into the minuses, then the Argon Gloves will suit you. A double insulated thermal lining will protect your hands from temperatures that reach as low as -50°C, while their impressive grip that means that handling slippery frozen items will be made easy.

This includes suitability for use in a freezer. The gloves happen to be suitable for use with food which means that you can handle frozen foods without risk of product contamination. The grip and sensitivity is ideal for handling small items and tools, helping to improve your productivity and your safety.

What Does the Lining of the Skytec Argon Gloves Feel Like?

The Skytec Argon Gloves are highly comfortable to wear with an inner fleece like lining that cushions the hand, while their flexible design can contour to your specific hand shape. They can be quite tight fitting however this works to only enhance their sensitivity and flexibility, ideal for improving your work performance.

How Much Dexterity Do the Skytec Gloves Provide?

Despite offering resistance to water and cold, the Skytec gloves don't compromise on dexterity. Their flexible HPT foam lining enables the user to have total control of tools, equipment and materials, while a rough palm prevents frozen items from slipping from your hand.

Can I Still Grip Tools and Materials?

The Skytec Argon Gloves are designed for use in freezing conditions and have a special coating across the palm, fingers and knuckles that helps to enhance grip. Their flexibility and sensitivity work well with the high level of grip, helping to produce a pair of gloves that won't let you down even when working in freezers.

Will They Protect my Wrist?

The Skytec Argon Gloves will offer total warmth from your fingertips to your wrist. They stop just after the wrist which helps to prevent a loss in dexterity during use, while their tight fitting design ensures that warm air can't escape and cold air can't enter. Their knit wrist means that they simply slide onto the hand and then hug the wrist, preventing the glove from slipping off your hands during use.

How Durable are the Skytec Thermal Gloves?

The Skytec Gloves are designed for use in harsh working conditions which makes them a highly durable pair of gloves.

What is EN 511?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 511. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 511. EN 511 stands for all things cold, and means that your gloves have been tested for their convective cold resistance, contact cold resistance and water permeability properties.

How Do I Read the EN 511 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score achieved the better the product will be at resisting the hazard tested. For the first two tests (convective cold resistance and contact cold resistance), the product will achieve between a Level 0 and a Level 4. The higher the score the better the resistance, with a Level 0 score meaning that it failed and an N/A score meaning that the product wasn’t tested for this hazard.

For water permeability the product will achieve either a Level 0 or a Level 1. Level 1 means that the product is waterproof, and Level 0 means that it isn't.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 511 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 511 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

Quality Service
Tuesday, 9 July 2019  | 

I have used these gloves before (from another supplier), so knew what I was ordering in that regard. Great gloves.

I ordered 10 pairs from 'Safety Gloves'.

My order arrived very quickly and I was kept informed all the way through the process.

Will definitely use 'Safety Gloves' again, now I've found them. Great service.

5 Stars!

I bought these for my daughter for gardening in the winter months, having experienced the comfort of a pair myself last winter. I know she will be delighted with them as part of her birthday present! Thank you for the prompt and efficient delivery.

Best I have found, I wear them for mucking out and grooming my horse in winter, which involves getting my hands wet and getting mucky. They are really warm and comfortable.

Lovely and warm, and long lasting. Would definitely recommend these gloves.
My only gripe is that the new size 9s are bigger than my first pair of old size 9s. I am now having to re-order more gloves in the next size down and hope they fit.
