Hand protection - Everything under control
Our hands are one of our most important tools; this is why hand protection is of particular importance.

For these many applications, there is a wide selection of gloves in a wide variety of materials and coatings. With us, you will find the right gloves for the right requirements:
- disposable gloves
- chemical protective gloves
- gloves for thermal and electrical protection
- protective gloves for mechanical risks
- cut and stab protection gloves
