Product Code: FELCO701L
Lightweight and comfortable, these gloves are made of knitted HPPE fibre to guarantee high resistance to cutting. The fingers and palm are coated with nitrile rubber to provide excellent grip and greater strength. These are ideal for precise pruning work by winegrowers, landscape gardeners, fruit growers or nurserymen as well as the hobbyist gardener.
Highly resistant to abrasion and tearing, FELCO 701 gloves are made from 13-gauge HPPE (high performance polyethylene) fibre. The “gauge” refers to the thickness of the weave, its value expressed as number of stitches per 2.5 cm of glove. Thus, 13-gauge gloves like FELCO 701 are finely woven, which increases the density and thus the tightness of the knitted fabric.
The palm is coated with nitrile rubber for better grip and greater strength. Elastic sewn into the base of the wrist ensures a perfect fit.
Protection from mechanical hazards is shown by a pictogram followed by four digits (performance levels), each representing performance in a test relating to a specific hazard (best scores 4 & 5).
