     When it comes to us providing adequate protection for our hands when we handle various different materials or chemicals we will wear certain gloves. Often the ones most frequently used are made from latex, but the problem is this material causes an allergic reaction in some. Should you be someone that discovers you are allergic to latex then it is worth considering wearing Nitrile Gloves in place of them.

     However before you buy your nitrile gloves you need to make sure that you get the right size. It is therefore vital that you measure your hands in order to determine what size you need and may be try out several pairs before you buy. Below we offer a few tips to help you when purchasing such gloves.

     As mentioned above you need to purchase the right size gloves for your hands and these one that should fit close to your fingers but still feel comfortable when worn. Also make sure that they aren't too tight because they are more likely to tear and could cause a skin rash to develop. Another thing is to ensure that they aren't too lose when worn because holding things when wearing them could also prove a problem. If when you are trying to pull the nitrile gloves on you find that your fingers need to be held out straight then these gloves are too small and so may be a size larger should be considered.

     When you are trying to find out what size gloves you need then it is important that you measure your hand first. Below we show you what needs to be done to ensure that you measure your hand correctly and this will then ensure that you get nitrile gloves that fit you correctly. A pair of gloves which fit correctly not only will provide ample protection but will ensure that your hands are still able to move freely within them.

     It is important that when measuring your hands to determine what size gloves you need you have a good tape measure, preferably the kind that dressmakers use. Also you should make sure that measure the more dominant hand. So if you are right handed and this is the one you use the most then this is the hand that you should be measuring to determine what size gloves you need.

So that you can find out what size gloves are needed for you then you need to do the following:

  1. First you need to measure around your dominant hands knuckles. If you are doing this on your own then lay your hand flat , palm down on an even surface. Then wrap the measuring tape around the hand, remembering to put it between the thumb and your hand.
  2. After writing down the width measurement you now need to determine the length of your hand. To do this take the tape measure and place one end against the tip of your middle finger (again on the dominant hand) and then lay it across the hand until it reaches the end (where the hand joins to your wrist).
  3. After you have got these two measurements it is the larger of the two which should be used to purchase Nitrile Disposable Gloves that fit correctly. Remember the better the gloves fit then they will provide you with more protection.
