Supplier Overview

Superior Glove believes that workers shouldn’t have to choose between comfort and safety, so they innovate to fit the protection workers’ needs into comfortable PPE they’ll want to wear. They design and test hand safety products in-house to ensure quality and protection and offer free resources and services to help companies develop safety programs that help reduce and eliminate hand injuries.




Our Solutions

Superior Glove offers a comprehensive product line of hand and arm protection and complementary PPE against many hazards.

Superior Glove Solutions Abrasion
Abrasion

Abrasion-resistant gloves offer maximum durability against scrapes and friction, which can degrade the material and present safety issues.


Superior Glove Solutions Cut
Cut

There are four different types of cut protection gloves: Low, Moderate, High, and Extreme. Each type of glove supports specific purposes, ranging from light material handling to heavy metal stamping, and is represented by ANSI levels from A2 up to A9.


Superior Glove Solutions Puncture
Puncture

Puncture-resistant gloves and sleeves prevent injuries caused by pointed objects penetrating the skin. There are two ANSI standards for puncture protection:

  • Hypodermic: protects against injuries from objects that can easily penetrate the skin, such as syringes, small fragments of glass, and other hypodermic (add to paragraph) hazards. Protection applies to ANSI levels 4 and 5.
  • Probe: a probe puncture injury is more blunt and can be as thick as a ballpoint pen. This includes injuries from objects such as nails, thick cables, wood splinters, and other hazards. Protection applies to ANSI level 5.
Superior Glove Solutions Impact
Impact

Impact-resistant gloves protect hands against knocks, bumps, and pinches while preventing injuries ranging from bruises to broken bones. The levels of ANSI standards for impact protection range from low impact (level 1) to maximum (level 3).


Superior Glove - Solutions Crush
Crush

Crush-resistant gloves contain caps to protect fingertips from pinch and crush hazards.


Superior Glove - Solutions Vibration
Vibration

Vibration protection gloves have specially designed padding to help dampen vibration from tools and equipment. There is no ANSI standard testing, but these gloves use materials known to suppress vibration.

Superior Glove Solutions Arc Flash
Arc Flash

Arc flash-rated PPE protects against heat and burns caused by incidental exposure to arc flash and high voltage flashover.


Superior Glove - Solutions Electrical
High Voltage

Rubber-insulating gloves and leather protectors are designed to protect workers from energized equipment and other electrical hazards. All of Superior Glove’s rubber gloves are tested and certified at the time of order to extend their shelf life.

There are two ratings for high voltage: Class and Type.

Class indicates the maximum use of voltage. Rubber-insulating gloves are classified by the voltage and insulate hands to protect them from shocks. Superior Glove offers a range of products from Class 00 to Class 2. We also offer leather cover gloves to protect the rubber-insulating gloves.

The type indicates whether the glove is ozone-resistant or not. Ozone can compromise rubber, causing cracks and compromising the integrity of the glove. Currently, all of our gloves are Type 1 and are not ozone-resistant.

Superior Glove - Solutions Chemical
Chemical Safety

Chemical gloves are made with materials that resist liquids, fluids, and chemical degradation. It is important to identify the chemical being handled and match it to the glove material that resists the chemical.

Superior Glove - Solutions Cold
Cold

Superior Glove’s cold protection products are extensively tested in-house to maximize warmth and range of motion in winter conditions. Their line also incorporates protection against other hazards, such as cuts, impacts, punctures, abrasions, arc flash, and heat.


Superior Glove - Solutions Fire
Fire Resistance

Fire-resistant (FR) material is designed to resist flame exposure. FR items are either treated to resist flames or made from inherently fire-resistant materials.


Superior Glove - Solutions Heat
Heat

Heat-resistant gloves and sleeves protect against burn injuries when working with hot objects or surfaces. These are generally rated by the highest contact temperature at which the time to second-degree burn is over in 15 seconds, and time heat is noticeably painful to the average person is over in four seconds.


Superior Glove - Solutions Water
Water

Water-resistant materials create a barrier to keep liquids out and prevent penetration. This allows workers to stay comfortable and dry in wet working conditions.
