What are mechanic gloves?

Mechanic gloves offer protection from a multitude of hazards and tasks. Because there are so many different tasks in such a large variety of industries, consolidating your needs into a couple of gloves can be a good idea. 

However, it would be best to stay within some parameters when using a mechanic glove for general use. Versatile protection that doesn’t compromise comfort and performance is critical in diverse environments. The risks range from low to high hazards.

Providing a glove that allows workers to transition between tasks during their workday without hassle encourages safety compliance.

Finding the right mechanic gloves for your work

Quality-made from soft and supple synthetic or grain leathers, these gloves offer comfort, durability, and safety that can be used in various multipurpose tasks. It’s essential to consider what is necessary for the job before choosing the right one for you. 

Whether your workers encounter nuisance/low cut hazards, moderate, high, or extreme risks will determine the ideal choice for your work environment and everyday hazards.

At Liberty Safety, we look at grip, abrasion, and durability when evaluating the performance of our mechanic gloves. We then assess the glove’s comfort based on materials and any other required protections. 

The two-piece palm construction eliminates material bunching and provides a snug anatomically correct fit. Mechanic gloves come in a variety of quality materials, including:

You’ll get an enhanced grip and abrasion but can still count on having the hand agility required by selecting a standard padded palm. With silicone honeycomb dots on the palm and fingers, you’ll have more coverage while still getting a superior grip without sacrificing the dexterity you need. 

Durability is addressed in each glove with a combination of design and materials depending on preference and need. With the addition of the appropriately thick, rugged materials used across fingertips, thumb, palm, and thumb crotch, you’re ensured they won’t tear easily and can stand up to most jobs.

Can mechanic gloves be used for everything?

When tasks are too different, it is best to choose other gloves for each job to ensure the protection you need.

However, if you have a group of tasks with relatively similar levels of protection (cuts, light impact, abrasion) needs, you can undoubtedly pick one glove that will serve well for all of those tasks.
