Gloves: Finding the Right Fit
Posted by PK Safety Team on Oct 25th 2010
Our Ansell Hyflex gloves are some our our most popular safety gloves. They are not only tough but flexible, offering more dexterity than your usual safety glove. I recently got a question about the sizing of these gloves:
I am looking at your Ansell Hyflex 11-600 Polyurethane Coated Glove. I see that they come in many sizes, but how do I know which one is right for my hand size?
For industrial gloves, including the Ansell Hyflex gloves, sizing is determined by measuring around your hand at the knuckles. For instance, wrap a piece of string around your hand, then lay it out flat and measure the length. The total in inches is your size. 8 inches equals size 8. It's that simple to find the right fit! If you are between sizes I recommend going up to the next larger size.
Finding the right fit is important in safety gloves, especially gloves that are meant to afford you more dexterity. Getting the wrong size can result in a loss of dexterity. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us and ask!
