Welding demands high quality PPE, and for good reason. A welder’s working conditions are physical, strenuous and tough! They work in one of the roughest industrial environments, around numerous hazards and literally face getting burned everyday. For this reason, ANSI Z49.1 requires all welders to wear protective flame-resistant gloves.
Both welders and cutters require protective flame-resistant gloves that provide excellent heat resistance. Keep in mind though, a welding glove’s material must provide more than just the standard protection from cuts, flames, heat, and sparks. Gloves must also be comfortable and offer excellent dexterity! A common reason welders take their gloves off is due to discomfort. Many of our new welding glove enhancements address this concern.
MCR Safety’s leather welding gloves are designed to protect welders from numerous welding hazards. We highlight below why we’ve been trusted by welders for over 40+ years now!
