Chemical Protection

 

Delta Health and Safety provide a far-reaching range of chemical hand protection by stocking Showa hand protection. We ensure that end-users have protective options against most oils, hydrocarbons, acids and corrosive substances.

 

The Showa chemical protection range consists of nitrile, biodegradable nitrile, neoprene, PVC, butyl and Viton gloves. In chemical environments, it is essential that you choose the proper protection as 30% of injuries are caused by wearing the wrong glove.

 

This choice can be complex as the list of chemicals the end-user is exposed to can seem endless. This is why Showa has created ChemRest.com , the world’s first free and comprehensive guide for chemical hand protection.

 

Contact our Delta Health and Safety Team to advise you on the correct glove for your environment.

Construction and Hand Protection

 

Injuries on duty can cause a multitude of expenses for both employer and end-user. For example, there are medical costs, time off losses, or potential legal payments.

 

More importantly, injuries on duty can have severe emotional and social effects on the victims and those around them. The construction industry is one where the risk of injury on duty is high. Showa has found that 25% of all lost-time accidents involve hands, and 7% of accidents involving hands lead to permanent disability.

 

Delta Health and Safety wants to play a part in mitigating this risk by supplying Showa’s trade-specific gloves.

 

Showa’s gloves are split into five main categories to help clients decide how to protect the end-user best.

Cut Protection

 

Cuts or lacerations cause more than 80% of all hand and arm injuries. Delta Health and Safety brings you Showa’s DURACoil and S-TEX series of materials specifically designed for cut protection.

 

DURACoil is created by wrapping multifilament polyester around a cut-resistant fibre, then reinforcing it with high-performance polyethylene. The result is a comfortable multi-purpose cut protective glove enhanced by different coatings fit-for-purpose.

 

Showa uses the unique Hagane Coil technology in their S-TEX range. A stainless steel core is bound with yarn to create fibre that provides high protection and flexibility.

 

According to international EN 388: 2016 (ISO 13997) standards, two tests are performed to rate cut protection. First, a Coup Test measures the number of cycles required to cut through a glove.

 

The second test is a TDM-100 test which measures NEWTONS of force up to 30+N. These tests produce a rating reported as A – F. A being the least cut-resistant and F being the most. Use the table below to determine the level of cut protection you require.

Insulated Hand Protection

 

Insulated gloves protect against extreme temperatures, both hot and cold.

 

Cold Protection

 

Protection from the cold is vital to keep your blood temperature and heart rate within normal range. Insulated gloves in extreme cold also protect the end-user from blisters, slipping and provide optimum comfort.
