Although food preparation and handling applications may pose different threats to those in many other sectors, safety is still a fundamental priority for the industry. Protecting workers’ hands is equally as important in the processing and handling of food as ensuring against contamination of food for the safety of the consumer. This means the need for a safety glove that not only protects the wearer but is certified as safe for use with all types of food.

Safety gloves used in food processing, preparation, and handling must be manufactured in such a way as to ensure that the materials present in the gloves pose no risk to human health or the integrity of the product. Food producers, processors, and handlers must meet strict safety standards and ensure all measures are taken to prevent the risk of contamination.

Unigloves Nitrex 244 HPPE cut resistant glove has been developed specifically with food safety in mind, ensuring against contamination and protecting workers’ hands against the ever-present risk of cuts from stainless steel, knives, utensils, and other food preparation equipment. Featuring Unigloves NitreGuard Technology for full 360° cut protection, Nitrex 244 has been awarded a cut resistance rating of level D (equivalent to level 5) and is designed to protect hands against high-level cut hazards.

The seamless liner with HPPE and encapsulated glass fibre makes for a light weight, breathable, and flexible glove, further assisting in cut and abrasion resistance. Unaffected by moisture, this lining construction makes Nitrex 244 ideally suited to food preparation, processing, and handling applications.

A truly versatile safety glove, Nitrex 244 is also ambidextrous, meaning it can be worn on either hand and prevents the need to split a pack should one glove require replacing. Featuring a low-lint composition, the construction of Nitrex 244 helps to further prevent food contamination.
