Mechanics are in safe hands with Mac Tools

In addition to its professional-quality tools which are designed to make the mechanic's life easier and safer, Mac Tools introduces a range of gloves, created with the same key functions in mind.

Cold Weather (MACCW5)

Not all workshops have the luxury of being heated during the winter, and for mobile mechanics and those working outside at home it isn't an option. To help keep the cold out, the new cold weather glove features a nylon shell with a C40 Thinsulate™ insulated lining. An accordion stretch panel across the knuckle affords impact protection and wear is kept to a minimum by leather panels on the palm and fingertips. List price is £39.74 plus VAT.

Fast Fit (MACFF52)

The Fast Fit glove is designed for light, regular use and features an elastic cuff for a comfortable fit and easy removal. Synthetic leather runs from the anatomically-patterned palm around to the thumb and index finger to provide increased protection and to reduce wear. Comfort is further improved by using a wicking material in the construction of the glove which draws moisture away from the skin. List price is £22.87 plus VAT.

The Original (MACOG52)

The Original glove offers a combination of flexibility and protection via a stretch panel that covers the entire top of the glove and that is reinforced with panels on the thumb and fingertips. The palm is a seamless synthetic leather design which improves fit and dexterity while a thermoplastic rubber hook and loop closure ensures a snug and secure fastening. List price is £27.97 plus VAT.

4X® Original (MACOG51)

Mac Tools' new 4X® Original glove is similar in design to The Original but utilises 4X® material for the palm and all reinforced areas. 4X® is highly resistant to abrasion, puncture and tearing and is considered superior to leather. As with The Original, a thermoplastic rubber hook and loop closure is fitted. List price is £38.97 plus VAT.

M-Pact (MPT52)

Protection is the top priority of the M-Pact glove. The Impact Guard panel is made from a thermoplastic rubber coated EVA foam material and offers protection to the fingers, knuckles and the back of the hand. Palm protection is provided by a layer of Poron® XRD, which absorbs impact and vibration. The M-Pact glove also features a rubberised, tacky material on the thumb and index finger, providing increased grip. Again, a thermoplastic rubber hook and loop closure design is incorporated. List price is £32.95 plus VAT.

Fabricator (MACFG)

Fabricators need tough, hard-wearing gloves and the Fabricator glove from Mac Tools is designed to excel in the toughest working environments. Manufactured from 100 percent leather throughout, this heavy-duty glove features heat-resistant cowhide panels, a reinforced palm with Kevlar® stitching, reinforced fingertips and a dual-layer leather knuckle-band. List price is £58.97 plus VAT.

A good quality glove is an essential part of the mechanic's inventory and should not be overlooked or viewed as an afterthought. Our new range is manufactured to the highest quality standards and incorporates design features that offer outstanding comfort and protection. With six different models to choose from, our customers can be assured of finding the right glove for the right situation. Mark Hallum, UK marketing manager for Mac Tools
