HexArmor Needle Stick Gloves' Protection Ratings

  • 4X12F

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.

Resistance Standard Resistance Rating
Abrasion Resistance Level 4
Cut Resistance N/A
Tear Resistance Level 1
Puncture Resistance Level 2
ISO Cut Resistance Level F

Suitable Professions and Applications

HexArmor Needle Safety Gloves are essential wear for a range of critical waste management roles. Please see below for a wider demonstration of their professional application:

Accreditation and Recognition

As well as providing incredible resistance to needles, HexArmor Hercules Needle Safety Gloves are also globally renowned as the industry standard for animal handling. They are recognised by the BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) and are accredited as being 'best practice' for animal handling in a variety of different zoological and agricultural settings.

Highly Durable Raised Silicone Palm Grip

Handling critical waste like needles and sharps is no joke. Dexterity, accuracy and precision are vital for your own safety. HexArmor Needle Protection Gloves come complete with a raised silicone palm coating that enhances grip stability, granting you greater, softer and more accurate hold and purchase.

SuperFabric Protection Against Needles

Serious about heavy-duty protection, SuperFabric was developed in 1996 as a solution for preventing needle and knife incisions. As a system, it is the collection of layers that prevent a serrated edge, needle or blade end from breaking through your glove and causing serious injury to your hand.

Incredible Level F Cut Resistance

This rating is the highest awarded under European Regulation EN 388. It means an animal or object would have to generate in excess of a huge 30 newtons of downward force to cause damage to the glove fabric. This protection ensures that needles and sharp tips don't penetrate the intricately woven, triple layered material surrounding your hands.

Care Instructions

Before first use, HexArmor Hercules 3180 Sharp Protection Gloves may feel a little stiff when you first wear them. This is because they are designed to become more flexible over time. To speed up this softening process, please follow these instructions:

  • Wash the gloves in a washing machine cycle at 30°C and add a little fabric softener
  • Repeat this process Leave the gloves to dry at room temperature over the course of a day

It is a good idea to wash your gloves periodically to prevent odour build-up. It is imperative you wash your gloves if they become coated in a substance or fluid that may be considered dangerous to you or others.

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.
