[Begin “Disposable Gloves and Latex Gloves”]
Here’s a short video describing our range of disposable gloves. Now, all our disposable gloves come in four sizes. There’s small, medium, large, and extra large. Now, how to measure these is to measure around your hand, so take a piece of string—like so, and get your hand and measure around this part of your hand here, so if you just hold it there, go around there, and mark the length of string like so. And then measure it in inches—is the size, so you can see mine, I’m 9 in. around there so for me, that’s a large.
The size goes like this. The small is 7 to 7.5 in. The medium is 8 to 8.5 in. The large is 9 to 9.5 in. And the extra large is 10 to 10.5 in. If you are in between those, you can go either way depending if you want a small or large. There’s a half inch leeway in between those sizes.
Now the four types—we’ve got the blue vinyl. These are ideal for food processing. These have got a lot powder in them, which means that they are nice and easy to put on. For food processing, if a piece of the glove comes off, the blue’s easily found in the food mix. That’s why they are used and they are preferred for hazard [1:25] and other reasons. They’re also good for public perception. If your cleaners have to be seen to have gloves, people can see that these guys have gloves or if you want to know that your staff’s wearing them. They’re the way to go.
Now, we’ve got the vinyl in a low powder. This is the most popular glove. These are nice and easy to put on—clear glove so you can’t really see them and they’re just good all around general cleaning gloves.
Now these are the vinyl with powder free or no powder in them at all, or very little anyway; it’s been mostly washed out. These are for people who have allergies or if you’re doing some fine work where you don’t want any sort of contamination from the powder—say computer work or something like that.
And then there is the stretchy, latex gloves, like this. These have got a load of powder so they’re easy to put on. Powder free latex is extremely hard to put on and I’m going to show you how these fit. These are a form fitting glove for if you need your fingertips for fine work or that sort of thing or if you like a tighter glove to wear. So you can see how they are. They’re nice and stretchy, like that. They can stretch so far and then they break—as you can see, and that’s what they’re like, the latex. So we’ll take those off.
And we’ll just show you how the vinyl gloves fit, so we put those on and these aren’t very stretchy at all; they feel quite thick, a bit thicker. They don’t have much stretch but then a bit easier and quicker to put on. You got them on nice and quickly. They’re good food processing, general cleaning where you’ve got to put gloves on and off a lot. See how they fit.
And this is how the gloves come. They come in a box like so. Now this, little box, it has 100 gloves in it and you can see here that you can tear out this piece and then they’re just easily dispensed—there, so as you tear that whole piece out and then that’s how they’re dispensed. The boxes then come inside a larger box with ten smaller boxes in it. So they got 1,000 except for the extra large in the latex. They’ve only got 90 per box like this and then there’s ten in a whole box but you can see how they’re stacked, and there’s the extra one there, which I’ve taken out.
