The correct glove size is important for wearer comfort and convenience during work. To determine the glove size, the hand is placed on a sheet of paper and the contour drawn around it. The width of the hand should be marked, as shown in the diagram, and then measured with a ruler. The dimensions that can be read off on the diagram (when enlarged) indicate the appropriate glove size.
Too small a glove should never be selected, since this causes the material to be stretched thinner and the barrier effect to be reduced as a result. Conversely, too large a glove size obstructs work. The correct glove size is therefore important.
