Since there is an overwhelming number of welding gloves to choose from, it is critical to have a good strategy for selecting the right pair for the job.
To guide your decision making we recommend using the 3 Ps protection, performance, and price - to evaluate your selection.
This might seem obvious, but the most important part to choosing the best welding gloves is to make sure it provides the correct level of protection against heat.
This means that the higher level of heat from your process, the more insulating your gloves need to be.
However, if the lining is too thick you will lose dexterity and it may become very difficult to hold a small-diameter rod with a thick glove.
If extra heat protection is required try a â€œglove saverâ€ which goes over the top of your welding glove.
Also make sure that your welding gloves are certified to AS/NZS 2161.4 Occupational Protective Gloves Protection Against Thermal Risks (heat and fire).
Not only does this ensure you are getting the very best and safest protection but it will make the choice of which brand of welding gloves to choose very simple.
Performance relates to the features that will benefit you the most. This will include things like comfort, dexterity, durability and protection level.
When it comes to performance we highly recommend Elliotts Big RedÂ® Welding Gloves which has been designed for extra durability
and comfort as well providing additional protection against heat.
If you require even more protection we recommend the Elliotts KevlarÂ® Blue which has addition leather reinforcing
covering the palm and thumb area and an extra reinforcing knuckle bar strip across the back of the hand
Although it might seem like a great idea at the time to purchase the cheapest glove on display, do not fall for this trap.
More often than not, the gloves are cheap because they are made from low-grade thin material and as a result, will burn and dry up faster than a well-made quality glove.
Remember Price is what you pay. Value is what you get While price is an important factor to consider, it should not be the drive your decision.
Find a pair of quality welding gloves that are comfortable and will
perform and show you value your welders, this will save you money in the long term.
We highly recommend using the 3 Pâ€™s when shopping for the best welding gloves as it will save you time and money,
as well as possibly preventing a trip to the emergency room.
