Thursday, 13 August 2015 | Admin
Level 1, Level 3, Level 5 – all you want is a Safety Glove to help keep your hard working hands intact but our range of EN 388 cut resistant gloves can be confusing as to which level you require. If you want a helping hand in understanding EN388 a little better, head over to our dedicated blog post, or get up to speed with our EN Standards Infographic. Measuring your glove safety may revel in codes galore, but the logic behind them is fairly standard: Level 1 gloves are better for minor risks and increase in protection performance as the number rises, with the top level being 5.
As we’re here at Level 1, you can rightly assume that these gloves aren’t the most serious Cut Resistant gloves we offer, but as they a) are still EN 388 accredited and b) still come from us, you can be sure that they offer premium performance.
On the Level
A Level 1 glove will have endured the following when put through their paces with EN 388 Tests:
• 100 abrasion cycles
Which makes them perfect for general handling, construction, automotive or janitorial work where hazards are low but your hands need to be safe from abrasion and cuts. Due to their specific level of design, Level 1 gloves are often thinner and more dexterous than their higher-level counterparts, which makes them a great all-round PPE solution for a range of tasks.
Alright, now we’ve clarified the ‘what’ let’s move onto the ‘how’ and how exactly do you pick the best Level 1 Cut Resistant gloves? Why, you read our Top 5 list, of course!
