Top 5 Gloves for Construction Workers
With aspects of the country-wide lockdown being eased, many construction workers within the UK are returning to work; whilst respecting social distancing guidelines.
It is imperative that workers are provided with the correct PPE to enable them to remain both safe and productive on-site. See our top 5 recommended products for construction and site work below:
The Signature Tiger Rigger is a heavy-duty split leather rigger glove with a double-layer leather palm and thumb – the Signature Tiger Rigger is renowned throughout the PPE industry for its superior quality and consistency. Like the other riggers in our portfolio, the Signature Tiger Rigger contains a 100% cotton liner across the palm and fingers for enhanced comfort. The double-layer leather palm and thumb provides cushion and padding – great for when moving large and/or heavy items. In having a hi-vis strip across the knuckles, you also benefit from increased visibility on site. Other features of the Signature Tiger Rigger include a heavy-duty cotton drill backing, leather vein and knuckle patches for additional protection, and a durable rubberised cuff.
The Pred Paws is a 5 strand polycotton work glove with an orange crinkle latex palm coating, and double dipped finger-tips to provide extra wear properties.

The Pred Paws is also cut level 2 under EN388:2016 and cut level B under ISO19337, offering a level of cut resistance for added confidence when working on site.
The Pred Atlantic is the first in our Watersafe Range of gloves. The Atlantic is made up of a 13 gauge polyester liner, which is dual-coated in high-quality latex. The first layer of Smooth Latex waterproofs the glove to the wrist, whilst the Sandy Latex palm finish provides superb wet and dry suction grip.
