Marigold keep working hands warm and safe
Thermal protection range
With winter approaching, Marigold Industrial offer their thermal protection range that keep workers hands dry, safe and warm in cold conditions.
Winter brings extra hazards with low temperatures not only slowing blood circulation and affecting natural levels of grip but with wet and windy conditions also attacking the skin's natural defences.
For those faced with tough winter working conditions or indeed those who find themselves in freezing indoor environments, we offer a range of Hand and Arm Protection solutions depending on the work being undertaken.
With advances in fibre performance and manufacture, thermal protective gloves are not only warmer, but provide greater flexibility, dexterity and comfort, ensuring that hands can keep working even in the harshest conditions.
