Handling protection

The Mapa Professionnel Handling Protection range provides the comfort and protection hands require to carry out awide variety of work. This range is divided into two distinct classes, helping you to choose the most appropriate type of protection for your specific application:

  • Gloves for precision work:
    are recommended for applications that require protectionfrom mechanical hazards, without compromising dexterity.
  • Gloves for heavy-duty work:
    meet the need for long-term protection associated with ahigh degree of mechanical resistance.

Performance levels

The level of performance of a precision work glove corresponds to its durability, which is directly linked to the thickness of the polymer layer covering the fabric, and the nature of this polymer. The thicker the coating, the longer the glove lasts.

In addition, the nature of the polymer coating in the fabric will affect how long a glove will last in a given environment. A polyurethane coating is recommended in dry and reasonably clean environments, whereas a thicker nitrile coating is more appropriate for handling in oily and dirty environments.

To help you select the most appropriate gloves, we have categorised the precision work range into 3 levels of performance:

  • Light protection

    Light protection

    Gloves providing light protection for applications in dry and reasonably clean environments.

  • Standard protection

    Standard protection

    Gloves providing standard protection for applications in dry and dirty environments

  • Long-lasting protection

    Long-lasting protection

    Gloves providing long-lasting protection for applications in oily and very dirty environments.

Comfort criteria

For precision work, glove comfort depends on the ability to let the hand breathe, and hence limit the effects of perspiration.

A gloves capacity to breathe is defined by the thickness of the polymer layer covering the fabric, and by the coating technology used; depending on the technology, the coating is either more or less liquid-proof, and therefore increases or reduces the gloves ability to let out perspiration.

The level of comfort of the glove should be chosen based on the length of time it will be worn. For example, for long-term wear (8hrs), a glove with better breathing capacity is preferable.

  • Standard
  • Very high dexterity

The environment

Select the right glove for your working environment. On the left are the best gloves for dry and reasonably clean environments; on the right, the gloves are increasingly effective against contact with oils and greases.

  • Dry / Reasonably clean
  • Oily / Very dirty
