Every day, we are exposed to germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, solvents, chemicals or cancer-causing agents that can enter the body through our hands and skin. These hazards live on the surface of hands and can be transmitted through touch. Disposable gloves are effective in minimizing transfer risks and protecting public health.
Not all gloves are equal! For over 40 years, The Safety Zone has built an industry-leading reputation for consistent quality and fair price. The gloves you buy today will perform equal or better than the gloves you bought previously. Our gloves are less likely to rip or tear. We avoid cost-cutting and material reformulations that often result in inferior products or health risks.
Choose the right glove for the right application. Glove variables include material, price, comfort, fit, durability and personal preference. All Safety Zone glove components comply with the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act which allow repeated use in direct contact with food and are DEHP free.
Latex gloves have been the industry standard in disposable gloves for many years. Latex offers the best fit, sensitivity and dexterity of all disposable gloves. Medical offices, precision manufacturing and computer clean rooms most-often use latex gloves. Latex is ideal for delicate work such as cake decorating, rolling succi, small component manufacturing and computer assembly. Latex is the second most popular glove in the food service industry. Around the home, latex gloves are used in the kitchen for meal prep, cleaning, personal care, painting, arts and crafts. The down side of latex is that if worn for a while, they become uncomfortable and hot because the perfect fit does not allow your hand to breathe. Some people are allergic to latex proteins. In this case, a popular alternative to latex is nitrile.
