Hand hygiene is paramount in the health industry and high standards of hygiene are maintained through specific washing procedures as well as use of the right gloves.
Gloves especially, are a crucial requirement when ensuring adequate hygiene and safety levels are upheld for both the patient and practitioner.
Signet offers a selection of examination gloves to meet the needs of different procedures.
One brand that is widely used in the health industry and known for its quality is the Supermax gloves. Widely used in the healthcare environment, the Supermax range of examination gloves includes nitrile powder-free gloves, latex powder-free gloves and latex low powder gloves. These quality examination gloves also provide a cost-effective option for surgeries and practices.
Supermax gloves come in two options to suit the individual practitioner: powdered gloves, which offer greater ease when donning and non-powdered gloves, which remove any risk the powder might present for wound healing or patient wellbeing.
Powder-free gloves may also be required for use in medical cleanroom environments where powdered varieties are unacceptable.
Additionally, Signet stocks Supermax nitrile gloves to address the need for latex-free gloves. With increasing concerns of latex allergies among health professionals and patients, latex-free nitrile gloves are being used more today even though they do not offer the control and sensitivity of latex gloves.
Signet is an Australian-owned company that supplies a comprehensive range of packaging, health, safety and cleaning supplies along with a large selection of warehouse and office consumables.
