What Are Impact Gloves?

Impact gloves are the name given to heavily padded, reinforced safety gloves designed to prevent sudden force from impacts causing serious injury. They're packed full of specially designed padding that distributes shock and force across the hand.

Why Do You Need Special Impact Gloves?

A designated pair of impact gloves are essential if you're concerned about material getting dropped on your hands. If your job means heavyweight handling on a daily basis, impact is a hazard you need to be guarding against.

Incredibly Durable and Protective Design

Combining impact protection with high mechanical resistance to cuts, abrasions, tears and punctures, the Portwest Gloves are seriously robust. They'll keep your hands safe from a wide variety of hazards, so you'll be ready for nearly anything the work day throws at you.

Completely Waterproof With a Nitrile Foam Grip

The Portwest Cut-Resistant Gloves are also completely waterproof to keep your hands dry clean during wet and dirty work. They're also coated in nitrile foam for a safe, secure grip in slippery conditions.

Heat Protection for Added Versatility

On top of all the protection above, the Portwest Work Gloves offer heat resistance as well. They're graded for contact heat protection up to 100°C.

Flexible 18-Gauge Liner for Comfort and Dexterity

Despite their highly protective design, the Portwest Gloves still offer lasting comfort and flexibility. The strategic placement of the TPR padding as well as the thin, and 18-gauge lining help to reduce fatigue and leave your hands dextrous enough for technical jobs.
