Cut through the confusion with Showa protective gear

Showa has recognised and responded to updates in international standards for protective gear, backed by 70 years of unrivalled protection and innovation.

The equipment manufacturer has cut through the confusion as outdated standards ask the industry to step up its game as soon as possible.

Showa’s gloves are resistant to nicks, cuts, burns, and liquids, allowing users to get the job done with the protection they need.

The gloves are available worldwide in a range of resistance levels, all in line with the refreshed industry standards.
