Window Cleaning Gloves for all weathers
That’s why it’s vital to use the best-quality window cleaning gloves, to keep your hands dry and healthy. All the gloves we stock are both waterproof and windproof, but they have various other advantages, depending on your needs.
The Glacier Perfect Curve is our most popular glove. Part of this is because it’s warm, as well as being waterproof and windproof. Made of 2mm neoprene and lined with fleece, these gloves have a 7.5cm cuff and are fastened with a Velcro wrist-strap to keep all the warmth inside.
One of the most annoying problems with gloves worn for window cleaning is that, even if the waterproofing keeps your hands dry, the outsides of the gloves can retain water. The Glacier Perfect Curve glove is different. Because it has a smooth outer surface, there’s nowhere for water to get trapped, and you can simply shake off most moisture.
The most innovative feature, though, is the perfect curve that gives the glove its name. Wearing gloves while window cleaning for an extended period can put a strain on your hands and leave them aching. Glacier have designed this glove to be naturally halfway to the grip position, allowing you to wear them without your hands aching.
SealSkinz have used a different approach to make their Ultra Grip glove waterproof and windproof. It’s made of a triple layer, with knitted Merino wool on either side of a breathable membrane, that prevents your hand from getting hot and sweaty. This allows any moisture to be soaked away from your hands without making the insides of the gloves wet.
One of the trade-offs with effective window cleaning gloves is often that the more protection they give, the more they limit your dexterity. The Ultra Grip is different, because it has grip dots all over the palms and fingers that allow you complete dexterity.
SealSkinz All Weather Gloves
If you do a lot of water-fed pole work, the All Weather Glove from SealSkinz is the ideal choice. While wool or neoprene can be damaged, this has a leather outer.
It uses the same three-layer design as the Ultra Grip gloves, with the same woollen inner layer and a breathable membrane in the middle. On the outside, however, the palm and fingers are made of anti-slip AX Suede Quattro, while the rear is laminated stretch Lycra, allowing for more dexterity.
One of the biggest benefits of the All Weather glove, other than the protection it provides, is that the roll top finger construction allows considerable dexterity. In fact, you can use it to operate a touchscreen — so you don’t have to tug your gloves off before using your smartphone.

A Tip for Using Your Window Cleaning Gloves
Any of these three types of glove will keep your hands warm and dry, but they won’t work as well if you put them on cold. So warm them up before you wear them, and let them do their job.
