Aerospace and Aviation Hand Protection
The British aerospace sector employs around 230,000 people. The range of professions is vast and hand protection requirements vary. At manufacturing level, we understand precisely just how valuable the materials and components being handled are. Cut resistance, confident handling and touch sensitivity can be essential.
Carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRPs) have been widely adopted in the air transport industry for airframe structures, casings and interior parts. Globus has several solutions to help prevent the carbon fibre from irritating the skin, whilst allowing efficient and safe handling.
Minimising lint can also be a key requirement. One glove style that has been successful for many aerospace manufacturing companies is the SHOWA B0500 palm fit. The glove was developed in 1988 to provide outstanding operability for delicate work in clean environments. It has a thin polyurethane formed palm coating to provide grip and help prevent lint.
Within the SRO (Service, Repair and Overhaul) sector, companies rely on Globus to provide expert advice and gloves to protect from chemicals and grease. From hydraulics testing to refuelling, Globus can recommend the right hand protection product to protect against specific Boeing lubricants, Skydrol or even jet fuel.
Globus also has glove styles that can contribute to your FOD (Foreign Object Damage) programme.
