Turtleskin gloves come in a variety of thicknesses to provide different levels of puncture and cut resistance, offering excellent protection for many work environments. These protective gloves have a range of applications and can be useful in security, waste collection and management workplaces. Asides from avoiding injury, it is vital to protect the hands when there is the danger of coming into contact with sharp objects, needles (these can transmit dangerous diseases) and even plant thorns.

TurtleSkin fabric has the world’s tightest weave, meaning it can be light, breathable and nearly impenetrable all at the same time.
