The Multipurpose Glove range complements the ActivArmr(R) Trade Specific range and firmly establishes Ansell as the market leader in hand protection for the construction industry. The Trade Specific range, launched in January 2012, features tailored gloves unique to the needs of a range of specific trades, all of which protect against the risks in the application of the job.

The range, which is now extended to cover every aspect of the jobsite, is best in class and promises to get the toughest job done with confidence."

Agnes Berthault continued, "We studied the needs of contractors and built gloves designed to meet all their needs. These 'second skin' feel gloves are made from engineered yarns for durability, breathability and comfort. They each have a foam nitrile outer layer for enhanced wet/dry grip and better-quality finger lengths for improved fit. For over 100 years, Ansell has spearheaded product innovation, and we continually strive to deliver the very best for our customers."
