Among the personal protective equipment of welders, gloves are one of the major elements. The welder’s hand is the part of the body that is most exposed to the mechanical and thermal risks of the job. A long glove protects the wrist and forearm. One of the first characteristics of the welder’s glove is its comfort; the flexibility of the glove must allow the hands a good dexterity in the handling of products and objects. Under its robust appearance, the welding glove must act as a second skin, from the palm to the fingertips. The resistance of the glove is another essential feature. If the welder is exposed to extreme heat generated by the tools, other risks must be taken into account for maximum welding protection :
It is therefore important to choose the right welding glove, with good thermal insulation and resistant materials for optimal safety.
The welding glove must above all meet the safety requirements established by strict European standards: EN ISO 21420, EN 407, EN 388, EN 12477 are references that inform about the level of reliability of the glove against the risks of accidents. These standards are clearly indicated by pictograms on the gloves. These gloves are adapted to the type of welding (TIG or MIG) by a dedicated insulation and a resistance to molten metal projections.
The right choice of size and fit of a pair of welding gloves ensures sufficient tactile sensitivity for great dexterity. A 5-finger model is preferred for a good grip.
Quality materials enhance the welder’s safety and protect against wear and tear; different leather ranges exist with different levels of heat resistance. A fireproof fleece lining may be necessary for MIG/MAG and arc welding.
The welding glove must be resistant to last a long time.
The Lebon range of welding gloves has many features however each model has a common objective: to ensure the highest level of protection for the welder’s hands, with perfect conditions of comfort and hygiene, limiting perspiration.
Lebon professional welding gloves are made exclusively with quality materials, selected for their high resistance to heat and flames: lambskin grain leather, natural cow grain leather or even natural goat grain leather. These protective gloves are heat resistant and are completed by a reinforcement between the thumb and the index finger.
The seams are made of 100% para-aramid thread. These work gloves offer different linings for optimal protection.
Lebon welding gloves are all equipped with a protective cuff in the continuity of the hand. It is very easy to identify the standards to which they correspond thanks to the clear and visible marking on each one of them.
Wearing a Lebon welding glove means ensuring professional reliability and expertise to protect your hands and guarantee safety at work.
