Across many industrial sectors there are jobs that involve cut and puncture hazards, sharps and needles. Through working with end users and learning about these hazards, we can design optimised solutions for protection, value and user acceptance.
At Tilsatec we understand that each industrial sector will have a wide variety of performance attributes required from their hand and arm protection.
Manufacturing and assembly in the automotive and transportation industries present a wide range of cut and puncture hazards. Be it body weld, metal stamping or general handling, Tilsatec have developed products designed specifically for each of these areas.
Construction encompasses many areas including masonry, dry walling, timber work, cementing and general handling of materials amongst others.
Tilsatec offer a selection of gloves to suit a number of these tasks from general purpose lightweight gloves to highly cut resistant leather and coated gloves, impact and hi-viz.
The Tilsatec range of cut resistant food gloves has been developed specifically for the food industry. Fully launderable without diminishing the antimicrobial properties, the range is available in a choice of weights and styles suitable for use with beef, pork, poultry and vegetable processing applications.
Workers in the glass industry need hand and arm protection that provides a high level of cut resistance but which also provides good grip and safe handling to prevent product damage. We understand these requirements and have solutions for many areas of manufacture.
Safety is key in the metal manufacturing and fabrication industry. Worker’s hands are exposed to a number of hazards requiring cut resistance, puncture resistance, liquid protection and heat protection. Comfort and grip are also paramount for maintaining productivity and reducing costs from injuries.
Oil & Gas is a huge industry with many varied sectors, each with their own specific hand and arm protection needs. We have developed a small, specially designed range of gloves to provide high cut resistance, heat and FR protection, impact and liquid protection for workers in the upstream processing and refineries.
With similar hand protection requirements to the oil & gas industry, workers involved in the production of petrochemicals particularly down stream require category III hand protection for high hazard environments. We have designed a number of PPE solutions that deliver a combination of high cut and chemical protection, liquid protection and flame retardancy.
The Utilities Sector can provide unique environments where high levels of protection are required, but with the greatest amount of dexterity and sensitivity to carry out sometimes delicate handling operations, be it handling blades, cable or pulling lines.
Waste management and waste disposal is one of the fastest growing industrial sectors. It presents many cut and puncture hazards as well as from fine grade needles. Typical operations include waste collection and removal, recycling, sorting and landfill management. We have product solutions to suit many of these applications.
It is crucial for workers in the aerospace industry using cut resistant hand protection to have close fitting, dexterous gloves with high levels of tactility to be able to carry out fine, precision work. Any coatings applied to the gloves need to provide secure grip without loss of dexterity or risk of the coating de-laminating and breaking off when working with moving parts and components.
