Working with water and other liquids in cold temperatures is a recipe for your hands to quickly become numb, clammy, and even frozen. The feeling in your fingers might begin to disappear. This is especially true for those cleaning windows with telescopic poles, window squeegees and washers: Danger of slipping! (Neoprene) gloves not only provide pleasant warmth, but also a better grip.

If you work with telescopic poles and also clean at great heights, a good grip on the pole is extremely important. In wintry weather, however, your hands can quickly become icy and immobile. If the pole slips out of your hand, this can do more harm than ruin your cleaning job. You could damage the pole or, much worse, the building.

Robust gloves perfect for the cold season, have been specifically developed for professional glass cleaning with telescopic poles.
They help you to keep your rods firmly under control.

Warm fingers and a firm grip

When it comes to glass cleaning with bucket, squeegee and washer, this is the perfect recipe for cold, wet, and numb fingers come winter. Neoprene gloves are the ideal helpers. UNGER has two different models: the Premium ErgoTec neoprene gloves made of textile neoprene have knuckle inserts to make them more pleasant to wear. They offer a firm grip through a non-slip palm with a special silicone surface. The second model is made of rubberized neoprene. Here too, the non-slip material ensures a firm hold. Practical: The adjustable velcro lets the gloves be individually adjusted. The gloves are also pleasantly soft from the inside.

Neoprene gloves: the secret to keeping your hands warm for longer

Good to know: Neoprene gloves run small. You should choose a size bigger than you would normally choose or, better, try them on before buying. A practical tip on the side: Put the neoprene gloves on with your hands wet. Your body heat will warms the water and keep your hands warm longer.
