Can your hands cope in the cold?
04 November 2016
So what’s it like to work in the cold with freezing hands? Well, as you may know, it’s not pleasant.
Everything you do is that bit harder and most of all it can be extremely dangerous. With cold hands and fingers, you are more likely to fumble with numb fingers, which is not only dangerous to yourself but also to others. It is absolutely imperative that you protect yourself against the cold conditions when working outside, which is why at TraffiGlove, we are focused on keeping you prepared and safe during the cold months in the UK, by reducing exposure to the elements.
We understand that no matter what, you have to do your job and that going into a sheltered and warm area on a regular basis for a break is not always an option. So what if you could be outside in the freezing cold and not have that effect your day to day activities, well we may just have the answer for you.
The TraffiGlove range of Thermic gloves are here to prevent you from the harsh winter bite and are also water resistant. Whilst offering excellent dexterity for use in wet and dry conditions, the range protects workers from cold and wet hands, to reduce the risk of being susceptible to HAVS (Hand-arm vibration syndrome), which occurs when circulation is reduced while operating power tools.

TraffiGlove offer a product, which can be worn inside any other of our products, in order to provide that extra warmth required. TG105 TraffiTherm glove liner has 'Thermalite Yarns', which is ideal for working in exceptionally wet and cold conditions. This would be perfect to be combined with the TG180, which is a fully coated water resistant glove.
