HexArmor AP229 Level F Cut Resistant Apron Protection Ratings

EN 388

  • 4X42F

EN 388 is a European regulation governing the sale of garments used for safety and protection. It determines a fabric's performance when used for protection against mechanical machinery by measuring abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.

The EN 388 cut resistance test uses a single sharp implement to repeatedly pressure a garment in order to determine the amount of force required to cause visible and functional damage.

Standard Resistance Rating
Abrasion Resistance Level 4
Cut Resistance N/A
Tear Resistance Level 4
Puncture Resistance Level 2
ISO Cut Resistance Level F

Level F Cut Resistance

Level F is the maximum rating awarded under EN 388. The test involved involves lowering a sharp implement onto a piece of fabric until a certain level of damage is done. Level F dictates that a sharp implement would have to generate an incredible 30 newtons of pressure to cause damage.

So What Does this Really Mean?

In reality, that number means the difference between a blade, machine part, serrated edge or piece of sheet metal slicing straight through your chest, potentially causing serious injury, and it getting lodged between the tightly woven cut-resistant fibres found in the HexArmor AP229 Apron.

SUITABLE APPLICATIONS FOR the HEXARMOR AP229 20 X 30 INCH CUT RESISTANT PROTECTIVE APRON

A Level F Apron is a brilliant addition to any workwear wardrobe. Protect yourself against blades, knives, machine misfire and unforeseen accidents. Please see the list below for a few example professions:

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.
