In agriculture and viticulture, the various pesticides and other plant-care products that are used constitute a hazard to the workers’ hands. These have to be protected against chemical risks. In addition, the pruning of the vines, harvesting techniques, horticulture and other kinds of agricultural work pose different risks, such as abrasion, cuts, stings or cold conditions.
Ansell: protection against all hazards
Ansell is a dominant player in the agriculture/viticulture market. Our large range of gloves covers all the different needs you may have: whether it be protection from mechanical, chemical or thermal hazards. Each and every glove affords maximum safety, without compromising user comfort or dexterity.
Peace of mind … plus that extra something …
For optimal safety, we test our chemical-resistant gloves against the most widely used plant-care products and have the test procedure and results validated by an independent EU notified body.
In addition, Ansell attaches great importance to the environment. We are more and more involved in the disposal of our gloves after usage so as to protect the environment from the toxic chemicals that came into contact with our gloves and which may be released after disposal.
World-class global distribution
Also, when it comes to distribution, we make doubly sure you get the service you deserve. Ansell operates through a dedicated distribution network. We work in close cooperation with the European leader Union InVivo and with specialist providers of agricultural materials and tools in the major world markets, so as to deliver world-class services.
