What sets Waldner apart?

Close up of glovebox

Our gloveboxes are one-offs, as they are manually produced to meet your exact requirements. We produce all sizes of single-sided and also double-sided gloveboxes, and can also incorporate additional filters or special cleaning systems, depending on the area of use.

Waldner gloveboxes are exclusively manufactured in high-grade stainless steel, guaranteeing safety and a long service life. All gloveboxes undergo safety and material tests to offer you the very best possible quality. Our optional glove test equipment also enables you to regularly monitor the leak-tightness of the gloves.

Isolator vs. glovebox:
what's the difference?

Gloveboxes are sealed boxes with inspection windows in which operators can work with sensitive and hazardous substances. Isolators are also equipped with special air filtration and pressure regulation systems, which enable them to be used to process toxic or sterile materials.

Glovebox: from sketch to finished product

All Waldner gloveboxes are non-standard products – we do not supply off-the-shelf gloveboxes. We will develop a customised glovebox that precisely meets your ideas and requirements.

You tell us what you want your glovebox to look like, how much space you need, and the equipment you need to have fitted. Based on this specification, we will then produce a sketch that will act as a basis for a mock-up, an original-size model in wood. You can then test this and incorporate any changes you may wish. Only when the glovebox fully meets your requirements we will manufacture your glovebox based on this.

Mock-up of the glovebox

Dimensions and weights cannot be experienced on paper. That's why we produce a wooden model of your future glovebox right at the start of the design phase. This gives you the opportunity to get involved in the design of the system and its ergonomic configuration right at the start of the project. You can then use the true-to-scale wooden model to simulate all your process stages and also have the opportunity to incorporate any changes you may require before your glovebox is actually produced.

Equipment and features of the glovebox

Its equipment is decisive for the functionality of gloveboxes, as this is the only way to use the box properly and effectively. We therefore offer a range of different equipment options. Below are just a few of our key modular options. We would be happy to discuss other options with you in a consultation in person.

Different glovebox material locks are required to enable risk-free working, depending on the intended purpose. Waldner supplies a range of options to guarantee maximum safety.

The lasting leak-tightness of the gloves is crucial for the safety of the box. But many work processes exert wear and tear on the glove material. We therefore produce glovebox gloves in different materials to meet your precise needs.

Constant conditions in gloveboxes are a basic prerequisite for many workflows. Keep an eye on the conditions in your glovebox at all times with H2O­­2, O2, temperature and pressure sensors.

For maximum safety: glove test equipment for your gloveboxes

You nonetheless have an Achilles' heel even if your high-quality gloveboxes are really secure: the gloves. They are naturally the weakest link in the chain and therefore most likely to leak. Waldner uses special glove test equipment to monitor the leak-tightness of the gloves.

This safety equipment is available for all our gloveboxes and can be used with all models. It allows you to check the leak-tightness of your gloves, and thus the safety of the entire glovebox, at all times. Choose from different kinds of glove test equipment: from manual test discs to Wi-Fi-supported test systems.
