High Performance Needle Resistant Gloves
TurtleSkin is a leading manufacturer of needle resistant gloves. Our gloves provide workers in high risk environments protection against a life altering needlestick injury. Our line of safety gloves include options for healthcare, waste/recycling services, custodial work, construction, and many more applications. TurtleSkin has been solving customers PPE and needle resistant glove needs for many years.
TurtleSkin gloves specialize in hypodermic needle protection, but also are reliable against nails, jagged glass, splinters, sharp tools, and other threats. TurtleSkin’s patented needle resistant glove material is a step above the competition. Read below the case study on how TurtleSkin solved and eliminated a customer’s needlestick injuries.
TurtleSkin fabric is made from high performance yarns that are tightly woven and the fabric features high density yarn end counts. This construction makes it very difficult for needles (or other fine penetrators) to find gaps in the fabric and penetrate through. We’ve found that for the best flexibility choosing one of our single ply options is the way to go. When broken in thoroughly our single ply gloves offer great dexterity while still offering reliable cut and puncture performance.
For applications with higher risks, have large exposure to sharps, and where dexterity is less of a priority TurtleSkin has solutions. By using multiple layers of our fabric we find we can achieve some great puncture performance. Our CP 500 Series Gloves can withstand over 700 grams of force from a 28 gauge needle! This broad range of needle resistant glove options work great for medical waste applications, custodial work, and waste management jobs
