Welding Gloves

At 123 Safety Gear, we recognize the extreme conditions under which welders operate. That's why we offer a specialized range of welding gloves crafted to provide superior protection, comfort, and durability. Whether you're an amateur or a professional welder, having the right pair of welding gloves is crucial for safety and efficiency in your work.

What Are Welding Gloves?

Welding gloves are protective gloves specifically designed for the rigors of welding jobs. They are made from durable, heat-resistant materials that protect the hands from the intense heat, sparks, and spatter associated with welding processes. Welding gloves also offer additional protection against ultraviolet and infrared radiation exposure, which is common in welding tasks.

What Do Welding Gloves Protect Against?

Welding gloves are an essential piece of personal protective equipment that provides several key protections:

  • Heat and Fire: The primary function of welding gloves is to protect the hands from burns caused by the extreme heat and flames produced by welding equipment.
  • Sparks and Spatter: During welding, sparks and molten metal spatter can cause severe burns. Welding gloves are designed to resist this kind of exposure and protect the skin.
  • Cuts and Abrasions: The durable materials used in welding gloves also protect against cuts and abrasions from handling metal pieces and other sharp objects in the work area.

Choosing the Right Welding Gloves

Selecting the appropriate welding gloves involves considering several factors:

  • Type of Welding: Different types of welding (MIG, TIG, Stick) require different levels of dexterity and protection. For instance, TIG welding gloves are typically thinner to allow for greater dexterity, whereas MIG and Stick welding gloves are thicker to provide more protection against spatter and heat.
  • Material: Common materials for welding gloves include leather (such as cowhide, goatskin, or deerskin), each offering different levels of heat resistance, durability, and flexibility.
  • Size and Fit: Properly fitting gloves provide the best protection and comfort. Ensure that the gloves are snug but not restrictive, allowing for free movement of the fingers.
