Heat Protection GlovesPROTECT YOUR HANDS FROM BURNS
Heat-related injuries are among the most dangerous and severe.
Heat Related Risks In The Workplace
One of the most dangerous industrial hazards is fire and heat related injuries. Without proper glove protection, one can be exposed to possibilities of burn while working around extremely hot machinery and materials. As we see with metallurgy environments, workers are constantly around high temperatures accompanied with sparks and flames. When heating metal for welding or shaping, it requires heating the material to degrees as high as 2500 degrees Fahrenheit / 1300°C. During these processes, you, of course, utilize a variety of tools to handle the heated metal. However, that doesn’t mean you are at zero risk of coming into direct contact with the metal should it slip or move out of place.
But also, heat hazards can be found in industrial manufacturing, chemical environments and in automotive. Regarding industrial manufacturing, even if sparks and flames are not present, running machinery can carry high temperatures as well and can burn to the touch. Showa’s heat resistant glove family provides amazing protection for intermittent heat up to 500°F /260°C. SHOWA’s heat resistant gloves are designed to withstand heat exposure while maintaining superior tactile dexterity. Heat resistant gloves can be seen in multiple environments. Gloves within this family also carry other protective features such as abrasion, cut and chemical resistance.
No single heat resistant glove can protect you from all types of hot hazards. Choosing the right gloves depends on your work’s nature and your hands’ exposure to heat.
Don’t expose your hands to extreme heat. Get superior protection by choosing from our line of heat resistant gloves and ensure your safety from burns, abrasions, cuts, and other chemical hazards.
