HexArmor AP361 Level F Cut Resistant Apron Protection Ratings
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 AP361 Apron.

Innovative SuperFabric Cut Resistant Material
SuperFabric is an innovative fabric blend developed in 1996 to provide a lightweight, revolutionary solution to work and trade problems. SuperFabric is incredibly slight, allowing the user to move, flex and bend as much as required without obstruction.
Double Down on Safety
Thought one layer of ultra cut-resistant material was enough? Think again. In an unprecedented design move, HexArmor have doubled down on their understanding of protection. The AP361 Apron comes complete with two layers of SuperFabric at the stomach and chest area, maximising protection and blowing the competition out the water.
Maximum Coverage, Maximum Protection
The HexArmor AP361 does what other aprons don't by extending below the waist to the thighs.

HexArmor use a split leg design to maximise movement and make it feel like you're wearing nothing at all.
