Cut Protection

Metal mesh and/or leather gloves offer cut resistance, helping to deflect sharp objects and resist punctures to the wearer’s skin.

With hands facing so many potential hazards (from being caught between pinch points, repetitive ergonomic stress, and exposure to sharp objects), cut protection is a must.


Heat Protection

Burns are a common injury in industrial manufacturing and chemical environments, and even if sparks and flames are not present, running machinery is often hot enough to the touch to burn hands.

DCC offers a wide range of heat resistant gloves and gauntlets to keep your workers’ hands safe in any environment.
