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. Learn more about AQL measurements >

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.

AQL 2.5Minimum standard for medical applications
AQL 0.65Better AQL than standard exam-grade gloves
AQL 0.4Highest known standard for barrier quality and consistency

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.

Glove Material Comparisons

Glove MaterialComfortPerformanceProtectionComment
Natural Rubber Latex• Highest comfort with elasticity & dexterity
• Great wet and dry grip
• Allergenic: Type I and Type IV
Nitrile• Strong and durable material
• Excellent puncture and abrasion resistance
• Good chemical splash resistance
Neoprene• Broad chemical splash resistance
• Maintain flexibility across wide range of temperatures
• Consistent performance even in wet environments
Polyisoprene• As comfortable as natural rubber latex
• Second skin fit and feel
• Reduces the risk of Type I and Type IV allergies
Vinyl• Most economical
• Provides lowest level of protection and performance
Low Moderate High Very High
  • 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.
