At Stratex we’ve been producing gloves since we first started in 2009. We’ve continued to leverage advancements in glove technology with our bulk buying power to develop and deliver high quality affordable gloves. And don’t just take our word for it, here’s what a client had to say about the Razorshield GFF777 Cut 5F Safety Gloves:
“As a Concreter, I’ve tried all sorts of gloves and these are the best on the market. I’ve been wearing the same Razorshields for over 6 months, never washed them and they’re only just starting to wear through in a couple of places. The double dip coating keeps the concrete out and the cut 5 protects my hands from the reo – they’re probably the best tool in my toolbox.”

With this kind of longevity, Craig’s latest Razorshield order could last him 24 years!
Like a song from the 90’s that hasn’t aged well, the power of gloves and the power of hindsight are closely intertwined. Often it’s not until we wash our hands or are reaching for a band-aid that we wish we’d worn them. Writing as the author (and backyard mechanic), my first thoughts about gloves usually coincide with greasy palms, or as a spanner flicks me in the knuckles. By then the work has begun and the point of no return. Wearing gloves at this point would mean stopping to wash my hands (rather unlikely). My own personal experience raises a deeper question here…
Unless your workplace mandates it, here are the top reasons why people aren’t wearing gloves (when they probably should be).
Using one of the above reasons as an excuse for a hand injury may seem silly, and there’s an important lesson here. If your PPE doesn’t fit properly, isn’t comfortable or fit for purpose, make sure you do something about it.
