Endowed with exceptional mobility and agility, the hand is a highly developed tool comprising 27 bones, several metres of blood vessels and thousands of nerve endings. Our skin is the first layer of protection and, efficient though it may be, it offers limited resistance to the cold or other dangers such as cuts and blows.
Always Innovating. Never Imitating.
Beginning with the world s first
PVC and Disposable Nitrile
gloves, we ve always led the
pack with better, safer ways for
you to work with your hands.
We combine our technological expertise
and mastery of design with an intimate
understanding of our customers, their
work and the protection they need to
go above and beyond. This approach
enables us to take protection to the next
level with advancements like our cut-
resistant Hagane Coil® and S-TEX range, which can withstand up to 40N force
unlike any other glove on the market.
Our standard is the highest standard of
performance and safety, providing you
the ultimate defense, no matter what
task awaits you.
PROTECT WHAT MATTERS Hands provide 70% of man s total motor abilities.
Quality is woven into every fibre of our organization. We have full control of our industrial
ecosystem, enabling us to maintain
consistent quality and achieve
perfection at every level. We perform
every possible resistance test in our labs
to ensure that each glove is fit for work
before packaging and delivery. All of
our production sites around the world
are ISO 9001 certified and embrace our
relentless pursuit of excellence.
Integrated Manufacturer Since 1951
By owning all of our manufacturing, design and inspection
processes, we create our own machinery, yarns, coatings,
polymers and hand formers. This unchallenged level of
control fuels our innovation process, resulting in unreplicable
products and technology that give us a significant advantage
over our competition.
It is a mistake to believe that for a glove to be good, it just
needs to meet current standards and prevent whatever risk
the user is facing. The reality is much more complicated
than it appears.
Whatever the industry, working conditions or application,
the glove needs to be as comfortable as possible. Comfort
is paramount as, without this essential quality, the worker s
safety would be considerably reduced.
Historically, a lot of construction workers would not wear
gloves because it limited their dexterity and prevented them
from doing their jobs correctly. Despite the risks, they found
it more practical to work without protective gloves. Faced
with this situation, manufacturers of personal protective
equipment, especially SHOWA, have developed solutions
that enable everyone to benefit from increased comfort
and exemplary protection.
By developing ergonomic glove ranges that perfectly follow
the shape of the hand and as the first company to develop
seamless, coated gloves and certain high-performance
fibres, SHOWA is a forerunner in numerous technological
advancements. Providing a high level of protection against
mechanical and chemical risks, SHOWA gloves always offer
more comfort, flexibility and accuracy than any other brand.
