APPLICATIONS FOR THE HEXARMOR CHROME SERIES 4026 Hi Vis Level F CUT RESISTANT GLOVES
Protectionn Ratings and Standard Regulations
EN 388 is a European regulation governing the sale of gloves used for safety and protection. It determines the gloves' performance when used for protection against mechanical machinery by measuring the fabric's abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.
The EN 388 cut resistance test uses a single sharp implement to repeatedly pressure a glove 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 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level F |
|Impact Protection || |
SuperFabric Foundation Fabric System
SuperFabric is a protective system developed in 1996 to increase the cut, needle and incision capabilities of fabric. Since it's inception it's become an industry staple, being used in everything from safety gloves to stab proof vests. Please view the image below for a better understanding of what SuperFabric does to protect your hands:
What Is the Importance of Impact Protection?
Impact protection is an often overlooked form of protection. Working in heavy-duty handling (bricklayers, construction, sheet metal handling) means lifting, carrying and holding heavy, dense material for long periods.
Incredible Level F Cut Resistance Rating
Level F cut resistance is the highest rating available under EN 388. It is only awarded to the most durable, heavy-duty safety gloves. It indicates a piece of fabric is able to withstand in excess of an incredible 30 newtons of downward pressure applied by a sharp implement.
So What Does This Actually Mean?
In simple terms, a Level F rating indicates a glove is incredible safe. It will protect you from slashing, blade cuts, incisions and serrated edges. It is literally the difference between a sharp blade or edge slicing straight through your hand and the blade becoming lodged between the tightly woven cut-resistant fibres that make up your glove.
PVC Print Palm
PVC is an incredibly thin coating. It sits over the foundation material at the palm to bolster grip strength and prevent cuts, abrasions and scratches ruin your day. The raised print on the palm further improves grip stability by giving the material something textured to latch on to when lifting, carrying and handling.
Synthetic Leather Fabric
The foundation fabric at the base of HexArmor 4026 Gloves is made of a robust and reliable synthetic leather that reinforces grip strength and allows your hand to naturally flex around whatever material you're carrying or lifting.
Isn't Synthetic Leather a Cheap Alternative?
Synthetic leather gets a bad rep. It has a number of practical benefits over its natural counterparts. It's actually incredibly durable, crack and stain resistant and on top of that, it will not fade due to sun bleaching.
