Our disposable gloves are regulated under two categories within the ‘AQL’ International Quality Standard; Medical or Non-Medical. ‘AQL’ is an abbreviation for Acceptable Quality Level and denotes a statistical measure of the consistency or quality predictor of manufactured goods. Within the context of disposable gloves this specifically refers to the prevalence of pinholes and the barrier protection confidence level. The lower the AQL number, the higher the quality of the glove:
An AQL of 1.5 or lower refers to a glove that is fit for medical purposes
An AQL of 4.0 refers to a glove that is fit for non-medical or industrial purposes
Medical grade gloves provide a more effective barrier and are therefore better suited for higher risk or more demanding applications. We also supply high quality Sterile Vinyl Gloves and Sterile Latex Gloves which should always be used for invasive procedures. Our Standard non-sterile Latex, Vinyl and Nitrile Gloves all provide AQL 1.5 medical grade quality at prices that reflect fantastic value for money.

vinyl gloves and nitrile gloves are suitable for home or the workplace with specialist gloves including
