As our customers have come to expect from Unigloves, we continue to develop and expand our categories to bring you the latest in hand protection. We understand that the threat does not stop at the hands when it comes to protecting your workforce against risks. That's why we have developed our highly protective, Nitrex arm sleeves. Like our Nitrex Cut Resistant Glove range, our Nitrex 247S features Unigloves NitreGuard Technology. Achieving a cut level E rating (EN388: 2016, equivalent to cut level 5), these sleeves ensure that not only are the hands and wrists protected against cuts but so too the lower and upper arms. The 18-inch / 45cm sleeves ensure full lower-arm protection that extends onto the upper arm, whilst the thumb slot allows for seamless integration with your favourite cut resistant safety glove.

The seamless 13 gauge knitted sleeve with HPPE and encapsulated glass fibre offers unrivalled comfort whilst providing high levels of cut protection and tear resistance. So, no matter the sharp or abrasive objects your workers encounter throughout their workday; their safety is never compromised. In addition, the Velcro fastener allows for full adjustability and means that the sleeve can be worn over clothing and extra layers in cold conditions. The soft, stretchy thumb slot ensures a comfortable fit under gloves so that even after long hours of use, hands are free from irritation and are less fatigued.

Safety sleeves used in food processing, preparation, and contact must be manufactured in such a way as to ensure that the materials present in the sleeves 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.
