How to choose the right protective gloves and shoes for winter
Little is worse than freezing your hands and feet when working outdoors. Fortunately, there are solutions that keep you dry and warm.
There is a shoe and a glove for almost everything. Also slushy, cold winter days and icy stilt slabs. Here's the guide to finding them.
Your whole body gets cold if your your hands get cold. Then it is difficult to get the job done properly. And the shoes are just as important, says Tommy Østvang. As a fitter in Utleiekompaniet, UCO, he has worked outside during many winter days and knows what he is talking about.
- I have had safety shoes that are very slippery. And gloves that didn't have the grip I needed. Not a good situation, when you have to climb 40-50 meters into the air on wet, cold steel, and you have to hold heavy impact tools at the top, he describes and adds:
- In addition, your hands quickly get wet when you climb a rhyming ladder. Unless the gloves are water resistant.
Now he has finally got protective equipment that keeps both the moisture and the cold out. It makes his working days far better.
- Now it's not the equipment that stops us. The first snowfall always feels bad. But after that it's fine. And then it feels extra nice when summer comes, he says.
