Ansell Cut-Resistant Solutions

Ansell cut-resistant gloves and cut-resistant sleeves provide outstanding comfort, protection and performance, improving the overall worker experience. Explore our latest innovations and wide variety of best-in-class cut protection solutions, and learn how INTERCEPT™ Cut Resistance Technology can help keep your workers safe.

Exposure to sharp materials and subsequent cut risk is a common threat in most working environments. Even performing seemingly safe tasks, like general warehouse duties, can leave workers vulnerable to cut injuries. By equipping your workers with a moderate cut-resistant glove, you can help reduce the risk of injury. Explore our moderate cut-resistant glove solutions here.

Many applications, across different industries, require a higher level of cut protection to ensure workers are kept safe from cuts and scrapes. From ANSI cut level A3 to ANSI cut level A5, these gloves deliver truly superior protection and comfort. Take a look at some of the solutions we offer in the high cut-resistant range.

In hazardous conditions, where there is a higher risk of serious cut injuries, workers may need to look at extreme cut protection to minimize laceration risks. These gloves offer a minimum of 3000 grams of cut protection, or ANSI cut resistance levels of A6 or higher. From handling sheet metal to glass parts, these gloves offer truly reliable protection.

Explore our best-in-class arm protection range. Soft to the touch, while offering wearers a cool feel, our seamless protective arm sleeve designs deliver superior comfort. These comfortable cut-resistant sleeves are available in a range of ANSI cut levels, as well as varying lengths and widths.

The increased need for touchscreen devices in industrial settings has created a new safety challenge. It is not practical – or advisable – to continually remove and re-don PPE in order to utilize touchscreens. Ansell is proud to offer touchscreen glove choices that guard against multiple workplace hazards, including laceration risks, while delivering flexibility, dexterity and comfort to encourage all-day wear. Explore our portfolio of cut-resistant gloves with touchscreen compatibility.

Daily tasks that require varying levels of cut performance and dexterity usually mean thicker gloves are worn to minimize the risk of injury. Consequently, workers often replace or remove their gloves to complete the task at hand, which leads to inefficiencies and decreased productivity. Unfortunately, this also heightens the risk of cut injury. Forego the trade-off between functionality and protection by using Ansell's lightweight and ultra-lightweight cut-resistant gloves.
