Pictogram help to quickly identify the work gloves’ suitability for specific purposes. Each symbol represents a different type of hazard and the numbers underneath indicate how well the work glove performed in tests, the higher the number the better the performance. Each of our gloves displays a symbol to indicate it’s suitability. To find your approximate work gloves size. Remember, no two hands are alike. Finger length relative to palm size is not constant from person to person. Additionally, what constitutes a comfortable fit can vary considerably between individuals. Using one of the methods below will help you to find an approximate Work gloves size, but no method of measurement can substitute for actually trying them on.
