Longer gloves for grower protection
MANUFACTURERS of new Pro X-Tended Latex gloves, which are 400mm (almost 16 inches) long to protect wearers further up the arm, say they are well suited to some of the challenging situations faced by those in the potato growth and supply industries.
All gloves in the Pro X-Tended range are powder – free and designed for optimum comfort and durability. The gloves meet the EN455 standard for single use, which includes tests for penetration resistance.
They are manufactured by ASAP UK, which was founded in 2019 and is part of ASAP International.
General Manager at ASAP UK, Madan Natarajan, said: “Our extended length gloves are very popular in many environments, but especially where there is a danger of harmful chemical splashing as they protect much further up the arm. We believe those working in the agriculture sector in particular will find them ideally suited to the challenging environments in which they operate.”
