Cold Weather Work Gloves

What are the best winter work gloves?

Our hands are the most adept work tool out there, so safeguarding these precious implements is of paramount importance in the workplace.

Protecting your hands whilst working outside, especially in cold conditions, can be challenging. Depending what trade you’re in, you could find yourself needing to handle greasy or wet equipment, and the cold weather can make tricky tasks even more of a challenge.

Kind to skin and the environment

All gloves from ATG are dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health Alliance, and go through a washing process after production - this ensures cleanliness and removes any stickiness from the glove.

Every ingredient that goes into producing these innovative work gloves, is REACH (Registration, Evaluation, and Restriction of Chemicals) compliant and do not contain any SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern).

ATG have implemented a HandCare programme, which is integrated into each product they produce. This programme is to ensure that the core value of sustainability and environmental aspects instil confidence in the wearer - caring for your skin and the planet.

 

Certifications
 

ISO 14001: environmental management

All manufacturing processes and facilities are ISO 14001 certified.

REACH compliant

All manufacturing processes are in line with the European REACH regulation. In addition, all garments are Dimethylformamide (DMF) free and are free from SVHC.

Sanitized: added hygiene

Working like a deodorant, Sanitized helps your gloves to stay fresher for longer. The specific grade of Sanitized used is triclosan free.

Oeko-Tex

The post-manufacturing cleaning process uses water that’s rain-harvested, treated and recycled from ATG's own water treatment facilities. This guarantees gloves are ‘Fresh out of the pack’, and is certified by Oeko-Tex - another step further to helping the environment.

Dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health Alliance

The Skin Health Alliance verification reassures professional glove users that ATG's gloves are skin safe.

 

Cost effective

The reason these work gloves are so cost effective, compared to other similar types of PPE, is due the fact that they are washable - giving them a longer life. You should always read the manufacturer’s laundry instructions for correct guidance, as each type will differ.
