Gloves to Protect Yourself From Electrical Sparks

Different types of work safety gloves provide different types of hand protection.

Rather than use a one-size-fits-all approach, there are many gloves you will want to use for specific works.

How can you tell if you are using the best glove for your work?

This guide covers different types of work safety gloves and when they should be used.

Coated Fabric Gloves

Non-coated fabric gloves these gloves offer a little more protection against cuts, punctures, and chemicals.

PVC, Nitrile, and polyurethane are general coatings, but the real coating you need depends on the work itself.

Cotton/fabric Gloves

This is the most general type of gloves for general projects or work where a high level of protection is not required.

These gloves provide a lightweight, think fabric covering that offers little safety to the user.

They are mostly used to stop little splinters or scrapes, though they do nothing to stop burns, punctures, or cuts.

Leather Gloves

Leather gloves are best for several reasons. They offer the best insulation, grip, and durability.

They are thicker than regular fabric, which provides a top-level of protection.

Anyway, leather gloves tend to crack, dry, or shrivel when excessively exposed to high temperatures.

They are not perfect at working with heat because they provide sufficient burn protection when in the best situation.
