The Best Work Gloves for Dexterity

Two key elements of glove performance involve protection and dexterity. While it is important to find a glove that will provide the proper hand protection, it is equally important to select a glove that allows for dexterity so you won’t be tempted to work without gloves. Dexterity gloves work with your hands, providing flexibility and comfort while you work.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 70% of hand injuries occur when the workers are not wearing gloves. OSHA reports wearing high dexterity gloves reduce the risk of a hand injury by 27%. Additionally, when gloves are too stiff or do not fit properly it increases the chances of hand fatigue, which can lead to greater risk for workplace accidents. At Ringers we are committed to helping our customers achieve their compliance goals and improve their safety records by creating the best work gloves for dexterity – gloves that achieve an equal balance of optimal fit, form, and function.

Our key goal, to create high performing work dexterity gloves to advance hand safety technology, is no easy task and requires dedicated research and development teams as well as product design engineers. In a recent independent study with the University of Wisconsin– Milwaukee, we worked with Dr. Naira Campbell-Kyureghyan Ph.D., a world-recognized expert on hand biomechanics, to assess our dexterity gloves on both their impact protection and flexibility. Ringers gloves outperformed comparable gloves from some of the industry’s leading brands.

This is the result of using innovate fabrics and specially formulated TPR (Thermo Plastic Rubber) that is combined with in house design made to prioritize hand movement.

At Ringers we understand that when you spend all day wearing work gloves you are looking to prioritize glove comfort, flexibility, and dexterity in addition to impact protection. Our dexterity gloves have finger point construction to allow for more tactility in the finger tips. Additionally, the wing-thumb and single full palm construction of our high dexterity gloves create the ultimate flexibility. We always keep your comfort in mind while we work to make the workplace a safer place.
