Wells Lamont Industry Group is introducing a new glove for the poultry industry. The DB Series features gloves in sizes from extra-small to extra-large and a 10-inch sleeve, and both are constructed from high-performance fibers and wire. It is suitable for the deboning process because of its added puncture-resistant material located on the thumb, index finger and forearm, creating an additional barrier against sharp objects without sacrificing comfort and dexterity.
