Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, introduces ActivArmr® Multipurpose Gloves, expanding its collection of ActivArmr® trade specific gloves.

The range, which is now extended to cover every aspect of the jobsite, is best in class and promises to get the toughest job done with confidence."
Agnès Berthault continued, "We studied the needs of contractors and built gloves designed to meet all their needs. These 'second skin' feel gloves are made from engineered yarns for durability, breathability and comfort. They each have a foam nitrile outer layer for enhanced wet/dry grip and better-quality finger lengths for improved fit. For over 100 years, Ansell has spearheaded product innovation, and we continually strive to deliver the very best for our customers."
- ActivArmr® Light Duty gloves are ideal for light duty tasks such as light maintenance, laying insulation, and handling sheetrock. Customers who trialled the new range liked the comfort, fit and feel of the gloves, as well as the tactility, dexterity and grip.
