There are knitted kevlar thread options of gloves out there, we have some that come past the wrist and some that stop at the wrist. Ours come from a manufacture called Superior Glove in Canada, but I'm sure there are lots of others. All of ours are approved for direct food contact. They come in different weights so make sure you get the one best suited for the task

 

I assume not recommended due to getting caught in the machine?


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

Hi scampi,

 

In cutting fish blocks, the worst case scenario is that chain mail gloves can be dragged into the machine as well. Kevlar option is new to me so I don't know if it solves this problem.

Due known incidents I believe it is not unusual to see a user preference for no gloves. Nonetheless the result is a fearsome operation to observe.


Kind Regards,

The new Kevlar knitted gloves look just like a cotton mitt that you would see freezer employees using to handle cases of frozen product, but they come up to 3000 lbs /sq inch of pressure before the glove will be cut.

We use scalpels in our operations so gloves are worn by those employees.

 

Best thing anyone can do, is have a sales rep come to the establishment so that you are certain you've got the right glove for the job....plus you may get a freebie in the process
