Black cotton gloves sales surge with food servers



https://www.gloves-online.com/catalog/food-service-gloves

For years we have served the food service and hospitality industry with our popular white cotton gloves which are widely used by waiters and waitresses. 

This past year, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in sales to the same customers for black gloves. I’m told that this is due to cost savings since the black gloves generally hide any staining from the food and still look elegant. 

Our black cotton models come in standard versions and dotted versions for gripping and are available in wrist length and 12” length. All are unisex sized.

Animal & Raptor Handling Gloves

Animal & Raptor Handling Gloves

I’m proud to introduce new gloves specifically designed for animal handling. They were made by popular demand by Caiman Gloves, one the leading welding glove manufacturers in the USA. 

What they did was modify their popular 21” welding glove and added extra protection that a welder wouldn’t require. The main additions are a Triple-Layered Cuff and added reinforcements in the fingers and palm. 

The popularity of the Caiman gloves are their patented designs specifically involving mimicking the natural curvature of the hands for added comfort.
Besides being a high-quality, long-life, durable glove, they offer a price that is half the price of other animal handling gloves available. 

See our listing for more features and benefits on these gloves.

Updated EN 388 Standard for Protective Gloves



https://www.gloves-online.com/catalog/cut-resistant-gloves

The European Standard for Protective Gloves, EN 388, was updated on November 2, 2016 and is now in the process of being ratified by each member country. Glove manufacturers selling in Europe, have two years to comply with the new EN 388 2016 standard. Regardless of this allotted adjustment period, many leading manufacturers will immediately start using revised markings on gloves. Therefore, we thought it would be wise to provide this information now to help avoid any confusion. 

The good thing is that the new markings will include the old markings with the added two new testing results added at the end for the new TDM-100 Cut test and the new Impact Protection test. 

Unless someone can convince me otherwise, I have found that the old EN 388 standard and markings provided an excellent guide for our customers in the USA.  However, for the sake of proper technical information I have provided both markings as a guide. 

As far as impact protection (the last letter), it is a simple P for Passed; F for Failed; or X for Not Tested. 



 

GO Gloves purchases totally secure



https://www.gloves-online.com/

Effective this week, all pages and links on GO Gloveshave been completely encrypted with the new HTTPS protocol. This also includes our Industrial Glove web site. 

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.

Although our web site has been encrypted for years, we have now converted to the new (HTTPS) standard which is becoming the new safe benchmark for the increase in mobile transactions. With this implementation you will now see a lock box on your browser link and this is something you want to look for on all web sites where you shop. 

We thank you for your support and your business and we look forward to a successful 2017.

 

FDA bans powdered medical gloves



http://www.gloves-online.com/catalog/disposable-gloves

The FDA has determined that powdered surgeon’s gloves, powdered patient examination gloves, and absorbable powder for lubricating a surgeon’s glove present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury and that the risk cannot be corrected or eliminated by labeling or a change in labeling. 

Consequently, the FDA is banning these devices. 

I noticed that the rule was proposed back in March but it was officially ruled on today and becomes effective on January 18, 2017.
