Ansell PPE for Indoor Growing & Agriculture


Over 125 Years of Experience

Ansell's dedication to safety and personal protection solutions has cultivated a comprehensive selection of PPE for the indoor agriculture industry and in industrial vertical farming.

Protection from Hazardous Agricultural Chemicals During Indoor Cultivation

Pesticide safety for agricultural workers must be seriously considered because chemicals from indoor farming can pose health and safety risks. Taking appropriate precautions and using proper personal protective equipment for indoor growing can reduce the risk of dangerous exposure.

A detailed understanding of the substances being used and their level of risk is crucial in determining the appropriate personal protective equipment for cannabis farming, commercial hydroponics, and other large-scale indoor agriculture setups.

Cultivation & extraction applications

Confirm which disposable glove is safe for your application by using the Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) measurement system. Exam grade gloves with an AQL of 2.5 or less are recommended for use in the cultivation process to reduce the risk of tears.

What is an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL)?

A standard testing process to evaluate the integrity of a disposable glove. The AQL measurement determines the highest number of defects (holes) accepted in a randomly selected batch of gloves. The lower the AQL, the better the quality of the glove and the less likely there will be defects.

Cut-Resistant Gloves

Ansell gloves are assigned an ANSI cut resistance level (A1 to A9) using the ASTM F2992-15 testing method. Gloves are rated by the weight (in grams) needed to cut through the material—the higher the weight, the higher the cut level and the better protection for high-risk applications.

Applications with a low cut risk:

A1 through A3


Applications with a high risk of cuts & lacerations:

A4 through A9

Cut-resistant levels:

A1≥200gGeneral purpose, warehousing, small parts assembly
A2≥500gGeneral purpose, plastics injection and moulding, pulp and paper
A3≥1,000gRaw material handling, general manufacturing, construction

  • Color-coded gloves for different applications can help prevent cross-contamination and allow for easy identification.
  • A thicker mil glove does not equate to chemical protection—the composition material does.
  • Using ergonomically designed gloves can help support musculoskeletal health and reduce hand fatigue.
