Using gardening gloves: what horticultural retailers should know | JFH Horticultural Supplies
WHY NOT USE GLOVES SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THE TASK?
As a gardening sector retailer, it is responsible practice to advise customers that using gloves should be a priority. Gloves do more than just keeping hands clean – they help retain skin’s moisture, provide protection from insect bites and pesticides, and give a better grip when handling tools. It’s crucial that your customers understand the importance of correctly-fitting gloves, as gardening is heavily reliant on the use of your hands. Gardening gloves that are too small can restrict the hands and circulation, while those that are too big can slip off, making tool usage and general hand co-ordination far more difficult. The sizing of the glove is important, therefore it may be worth keeping a tape measure to hand in the gardening section of your store, so that shoppers can measure their hands to determine size.
WHICH BRAND OF GARDENING GLOVES IS BEST?
JFH Horticultural is a leading retailer of Showa Gloves from the Globus Group – world leaders in many hand protection solutions for a variety of different industries. Before Showa Gloves for gardening were designed and developed, thorough assessment and research was made into hand protection requirements in the gardening sector, and a survey of applications and risks carried out before the gloves were manufactured. This ensures the gloves meet the essential hand protection needs of every gardener.
Showa is a leading gardening glove brand. These gloves give the wearer flexible and robust grip thanks to a special synthetic nitrile rubber palm that protects against abrasion and oils, increasing durability and making them suitable for a range of gardening tasks. Designed for easy movement and continuous wear, the gloves feature a breathable surface on the back of the hand, antibacterial action and an elasticated wrist, with no risk for latax allergy sufferers.
