Sometimes, Fingerless Work Gloves are Just Right

If you’ve never worn them, putting fingerless or three-digit gloves through their paces may seem odd at first. Once you wear them though, it is easy to see the benefits. After all, it’s not as if half of your hand is exposed, just the fingertips.

Why would you need fingers free? I’m sure you can think of a few answers already. How many times have you taken your gloves off to tie a shoelace? To button your coat? To use your mobile phone? Many workers perform similar fine motor skill tasks frequently throughout the day.

Fingerless gloves were specifically designed to address the industrial safety needs of people engaging in tasks requiring full dexterity, where warmth or hand protection is also needed. The applications are nearly endless:

  • Automotive and machine repair
  • Carpentry
  • Computer Repair and assembly
  • Glass and cut metal handling
  • Detailed assembly work
  • Construction; mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP)

These are just a few of the more common activities where users benefit from the warmth and hand protection of fingerless gloves, while enjoying increased agility. In fact, more uses are coming to light every day.

We recently took a call from a business that teaches people how to fly big kites. The friction from the rope can damage the palms of the hand, yet participants need their fingers free to tie knots and operate the equipment. Fingerless gloves were the perfect solution, and it made us think about how perfect they would be for fishers. For handling firearms while hunting. Or for carpenters and builders handling outdoor property maintenance and management. The applications are only limited to what you can think of.

At MDS, we are proud to offer a full assortment of three-digit gloves from the leading companies in the glove industry.

We recently introduced TraffiGlove® to the United States. This U.K. based company offers some of the most cost-effective gloves on the market, and their color-coded cut and abrasion visual awareness rating system makes them easy to use. Traffi® pu coated open finger gloves come in color red (cut level A1), color amber (cut level A2) and color green (cut level A3), just like a traffic light signal, and each color represents a different cut, abrasion or puncture level. If you are going through a lot of gloves or giving them to visitors, the pricing on TraffiGlove® products will bring you in; the quality will keep you coming back.
