Protective Gloves For The Food IndustryFollow article
MAPA PROFESSIONNEL PROTECTIVE GLOVES PROVIDE SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY APPLICATION IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY
The food and beverage industry is made up of 30 different industries. These industries range from Abattoir’s to Whiskey producers and therefore present a wide range of risks which need to be considered when ensuring the wellbeing of staff.
When specifically looking at hand protection, the risks remain very wide ranging, from high temperatures in industries such as bakeries but with low temperatures in chilled and frozen products. There is then cut risk in meat, poultry and fish industries along with chemical risks from detergents and cleaning products used across many industries.
A solution for every hand that works
Whether it is production, processing, distribution or catering, Mapa Professionnel has developed the Mapa Food Expert range of gloves to guarantee maximum hygiene and in strict compliance with European regulations regarding food contact.In addition to this specific range, Mapa Professionnel has a wide range of safety gloves for other tasks in this sector, as some tasks do not require a specific glove suitable for food contact.
The range includes gloves that cover the aforementioned need for protection against hot and cold temperatures, cut risks and chemicals found in many cleaning products.
Mapa and RS Components have worked together to offer some specific high performance products from this range.
