Title
(EN) DISPOSABLE GLOVE AND GLOVE DISPENSING APPARATUS
(FR) GANT JETABLE ET APPAREIL DE DISTRIBUTION DE GANTS
Abstract
(EN)
There is provided a package of disposable gloves (10) and a glove dispensing apparatus (60). The package of disposable gloves comprises a plurality of gloves (25) joined to one another in a line wherein adjacent ones of the gloves are connected together by a respective first frangible connection (26) which is breakable to separate the gloves from one another. Each of the gloves has a glove edge (29) lying transversely to the first frangible connection to form an open cuff (30) of each glove (25), and at least one finger (11b) of each glove is connected to an adjacent finger (1b) or thumb (11c) of the glove by a corresponding further frangible connection (52) which is breakable to separate the connected fingers or finger and thumb of the glove. The glove dispensing apparatus (60) can be used for enabling hygienic location of a glove of the glove package (10) on a user's hand. The dispensing apparatus comprises a storage (64, 65) for storing the package of gloves, a glove line feed arrangement (72a, 72b) for advancing the line of gloves to locate an end glove of the line in a hand insertion zone (68) of the apparatus, and a glove opening system including adherent surfaces (83), the glove opening system (70) being operable for contact of the adherent surfaces with opposed first and second layers (18, 20) of the end glove of the line to adhere to the layers and subsequently to draw the adhered layers of the glove apart for allowing a user to insert their hand into the open cuff (30) of the glove in the hand insertion zone (68). There are also provided methods for use of the glove dispensing apparatus.

L'invention concerne un emballage de gants jetables (10) et un appareil de distribution de gants (60). L'emballage de gants jetables comprend une pluralité de gants (25) réunis les uns aux autres en une ligne, dans laquelle des gants adjacents parmi les gants sont reliés entre eux par une première liaison pouvant être rompue respective (26), qui peut être rompue pour séparer les gants les uns des autres. Chacun des gants a un bord de gant (29) s'étendant transversalement à la première liaison pouvant être rompue pour former une manchette ouverte (30) de chaque gant (25), et au moins un doigt (11b) de chaque gant étant reliée à un doigt (1b) ou à un pouce (11c) adjacent du gant par une autre liaison pouvant être rompue correspondante (52) qui peut être rompue pour séparer les doigts ou le doigt et le pouce reliés du gant. L'appareil de distribution de gants (60) peut être utilisé pour permettre une disposition hygiénique d'un gant de l'emballage de gants (10) sur la main d'un utilisateur. L'appareil de distribution comprend un stockage (64, 65) pour stocker l'emballage de gants, un agencement de délivrance en ligne de gants (72a, 72b) pour faire avancer la ligne de gants afin de disposer un gant d'extrémité de la ligne dans une zone d'insertion de main (68) de l'appareil, et un système d'ouverture de gant comprenant des surfaces adhérentes (83), le système d'ouverture de gant (70) pouvant être actionné pour un contact des surfaces adhérentes avec des première et seconde couches opposées (18, 20) du gant d'extrémité de la ligne de façon à adhérer aux couches, puis pour séparer les unes des autres les couches qui ont adhéré du gant, de manière à permettre à un utilisateur d'insérer sa main dans la manchette ouverte (30) du gant dans la zone d'insertion de main (68). L'invention concerne également des procédés pour l'utilisation de l'appareil de distribution de gants.
