Globus launch the 'glove for all seasons'

Globus, a leader in the protective glove market, has launched the innovative 306 glove (from the Showa brand) which provides the perfect balance between comfort, dexterity, performance and value.  The launch follows over a decade of research and development which focused on achieving the Utopian vision of a ‘glove for all seasons’.

Steve Shale (pictured), marketing manager of Globus said; “The unpredictable nature of the British weather means that gardeners face a multitude of conditions and ensuring hands remain comfortable when going from dry to wet conditions and vice versa is a considerable challenge whilst wearing the same glove. Unique to Globus in the UK and Ireland, the Showa 306 is a revolutionary glove which overcomes this.”

The Showa 306 is a unique combination of high grade foam latex coupled with a flat latex coating on the palm which enables exceptional grip, dexterity as well as breathability. This exceptional breathability means reduced perspiration in warm conditions and improved dryness in wet conditions. As a result, gardeners that wear the Showa 306 will ensure their hands remain dry, clean and protected whatever the weather decides to do and regardless of whether wet or dry growing media is being handled.

Together, Globus and Showa Best have shown decades of continuous innovation and are dedicated to researching new fibres and fabrics, designing new compounds and coating science to make their gloves even more safe, helpful to the environment and comfortable for the wearer.

The new 306 mimics the natural contours and curvature of the hand and thus reduces muscular stress and hand fatigue. The seamless knit of the first grade materials used also provides optimum comfort and eliminates skin irritation. The spongy foam latex offers protection to the back of the hands whilst still affording excellent flexibility and fit – something not usually seen in other fully coated gloves.

Globus provides other uniquely engineered products that also promote breathability. The 281 TEMRES glove has been designed with specific characteristics to match wet work requirements around the home and garden. 
Gardeners and landscapers can now benefit from the advantages that these high tech gloves provide; enabling them to enjoy their gardening and complete jobs with complete comfort and safety.

 Showa 306; the glove for all seasons and a welcome addition to the Globus range! See it on stand 19G51 at Glee 2014.
