Turtleskin® Glove Safety Products

Patented Life Safety Products in Accidential Workplace Needlestick Prevention

For operators who work with hypodermic needles, nails, cables, wires, glass TURTLESKIN PLATINUM WRAP SAFETY GLOVESfragments, metal shards and wood splinters, protection against cuts and punctures is crucial to personal hand safety.

Turtleskin® Safety Gloves  provide the highest level of puncture, stab, and needle protection in a lightweight, ultra flexible fabric less than the thickness of three sheets of paper engineered for personal and occupational safety and performance.


A Warwick Mills creation, TurtleSkin® brand is a family of patented materials woven in the USA with high-strength fibers engineered to be very thin yet very protective.

Using aramid materials, Turtleskin® holds the patent for the tightest weave ever achieved resulting in superior protection without sacrificing dexterity and comfort. TurtleSkin’s patented weave interlocks aramid fibers so tightly they won’t shift or leave gaps for needles and fine penetrators to slide past and has many varied uses, from puncture-resistant SnakeArmor® hunting clothing and DogArmor safety vests to WaterArmor® PPE  for UHP Waterjet Operators.

Turtleskin® Safety Gloves are available in different fabrics, styles and are commonly used in:

  • Police/Law Enforcement/Military/Security
  • Clinical Waste/Hospital Laundry
  • Recycling/Waste Management
  • General Janitorial
  • Animal/Reptile Handling
  • Bottling
  • Property Maintenance
  • Timer/Lumber Industries
  • Utilities
  • Transport Companies

TurtleSkin® Puncture Tests

The extra large puncture probe used for CE certification (European mechanical test EN388) relates to larger threats (nails, barbed wire) but is not effective in determining high-risk threats like glass slivers, metal shards, or needlesticks. Hypodermic needles bend easily and are difficult to test. As a result, no standardized needle puncture tests exist. To demonstrate the needlestick protection of TurtleSkin® Safety Gloves, Warwick Mills modified EN388 by using a 0.05 inch (1.27 mm) hardened steel probe that offers consistent, repeatable results, while also providing a fine tip similar to those found on many sharp objects.

Laboratory Tested and Certified

To ensure high levels of performance and consistency, Warwick MIlls is ISO-9001:2008 certified and performs extensive lab testing on its products on their on-site lab which supports both product development and production certification. They also participate in independent testing, such as Europe's CE Marking and US NIJ specifications for law enforcement and corrections applications.
