Stay in touch while wearing gloves

SENSE of touch and manual dexterity are factors not normally associated with wearing protective gloves.

Sentinel Laboratories reckons to have overcome this problem with its N-Dex Plus gloves, developed for general industrial and engineering use.

Made of synthetic rubber, the gloves measure 0.2mm thick and are said to offer a degree of resistance to solvents and chemicals. A pack of 100 pairs costs £15 (01444-484044).
