Protecting against both contact cold and contact heat, and safe for use with food, the 78-110 Glove is ideal for a wide range of tasks in the food industry, including cold storage, food service, dry food handling and as an under-glove for applications in cold environments.

Features and Benefits of the ProFood 78-110 Gloves

Thermolite Material for Excellent Insulation

The 78-110 Gloves are manufactured from spandex and Thermolite, a special hollow-core fibre that provides superior thermal insulation. These fibres trap warmth against the skin to keep the hands warm in cold environments. This material also eliminates perspiration to prevent cooling and therefore maintain body heat.

The Thermostat Gloves provide protection against both contact heat and contact cold. They have been certified as providing protection against contact cold under EN 511:2006 (010). They have also been tested to EN 407:2004 for resistance to heat, and were found to provide protection against contact heat up to 100°C.

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.

Where Can I Find Out More?

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.

Freezer gloves
Wednesday, 25 November 2020  | 

We bought these for use in our domestic freezer. We have found that our hands get cold very quickly when getting food out which is not what we expected from their description.
