Ansell Polar Grip 23-700 Insulated Winter Work Gloves

Keeping hands warm while resisting salts and chemicals, the Ansell Polar Grip 23-700 Insulated Winter Work Gloves are ideal for providing enhanced hand protection while working outdoors and in cold environments. The gloves also feature a PVC coating, providing excellent grip even when handling wet or slippery objects, and are fluorescent orange for easy identification and safer working in darker environments.

The product code for the gloves is: 23-700.

Key Features and Benefits of the 23-700 Gloves

  • Rugged inter glove designed to outwear leather counterparts
  • Each glove sheds water and resists salts and chemicals for improved protection
  • Polyurethane foam insulation ensures quality warmth and comfort
  • Rough-finish PVC coating for excellent gripping when working with wet or slippery objects
  • Abrasion resistance improves safety when handling coarse materials
  • Gauntlet-style cuff enables quick and easier donning
  • Fluorescent orange colour provides easy identification and safer working in lower-light environments
  • Available in a range of sizes for a comfortable fit
  • Suitable for a range of applications, from building and construction to chemical refining and cold storage

Resists Salts and Chemicals

Not only can handling objects become difficult if the right gloves aren't worn, but salts and chemicals can also come into contact with the skin and cause irritations. The PVC coating of the 23-700 gloves combats this by combining excellent grip for safer handling with a resistance to salts and a range of chemicals. This helps to keep hands safer while working without compromise to performance.

Keeps Hands Warmer

Working in cold conditions or handling cold objects can cause pain to the hands while also reducing performance ability. The polyurethane foam insulation of the 23-700 gloves keep hands feeling warm and dry, making them ideal for wearing in low-temperature environments.

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

What is EN 511?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 511. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 511. EN 511 stands for all things cold, and means that your gloves have been tested for their convective cold resistance, contact cold resistance and water permeability properties.

How Do I Read the EN 511 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score achieved the better the product will be at resisting the hazard tested. For the first two tests (convective cold resistance and contact cold resistance), the product will achieve between a Level 0 and a Level 4. The higher the score the better the resistance, with a Level 0 score meaning that it failed and an N/A score meaning that the product wasn’t tested for this hazard.

For water permeability the product will achieve either a Level 0 or a Level 1. Level 1 means that the product is waterproof, and Level 0 means that it isn't.
