Where To Buy Quality Nitrile Gloves in South Africa

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, demand for gloves has increased sharply around the world, as more industries take additional precautions to ensure the health and wellbeing of their employees, as well as for consumers engaging with their products and services. Nitrile gloves are high on the list as an alternative to latex, and as you’ll come to note, there is a good reason why this is the case. So where can you look to find high quality nitrile gloves in South Africa? We’ve done the digging for you, and are happy to share a few resources for the best suppliers on the market today. 

The Benefits of Choosing Nitrile over Latex Gloves

Nitrile gloves are effectively made from a synthetic rubber compound which is commonly found in disposable gloves across the board. In comparison to its latex counterpart, nitrile offers a couple of added benefits that may be of use to your business depending on the goods or services you offer. Nitrile gloves are highly durable and puncture resistant, and can also withstand exposure to solvents, chemicals and oils that typically destroy natural latex gloves. While not as soft or comfortable as its latex counterpart, from a practical standpoint, nitrile edges out its competition. 

Supra Healthcare

Now that you know about the value of nitrile gloves, you can start your search for the best quality options out there. Supra Healthcare’s nitrile gloves are powder free, ambidextrous and contain a beaded cuff. Available in various shapes and sizes, the glove has over 650 customer reviews on their website, showcasing that it is a bestseller in their range. Supra has offices all over the country, but their roots are in Johannesburg, where they first opened their doors in 1985. If your business operates in this area, they are a good supplier to have on speed dial. 


We can’t talk about high quality personal protective equipment and not bring G.Fox into the conversation. With years of history and a reputation for providing affordable, high quality products, G.Fox stocks rubber and nitrile gloves in a range of different sizes, colours and textures. The company boasts being a one-stop shop for good reason, as their “essential products” department will have you covered for both personal and commercial products related to assisting in the fight against the pandemic. Ask about their blue lined nitrile gloves or the green alternative, both of which are top sellers in the range. 

AMT Composites

AMT Composites services companies in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, and will be celebrating their 30th birthday in the industry this year. While the company doesn’t specifically focus on creating gloves, their Neogloves range is a prominent feature of their catalogue and is known for being competitively priced relative to other options on the market. If you’re thinking about going this route, enquire with them about stock levels, especially in times of heightened demand. If all else fails, one of the other suppliers on the list will have you covered.
