Resistance Ratings and Protection Standards for 9032 Gloves
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 4 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 3 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level F |
Aside from their impressive mechanical resistance ratings under EN 388, HexArmor 9032 PointGuard Ultra Gloves have been independently tested for contact protection against needles. Please view the ratings below to see which ratings they conform to:
- ANSI/ISEA Cut: Level A9
- Needlestick: Level 5

Why Choose HexArmor Ultra 9032 Gloves For Working with Violent Individuals?
Working with members of the public or prisoners can be difficult, but in some scenarios it can be highly dangerous, especially if their inventory has not been accounted for. By wearing the HexArmor Ultra 9032 Gloves, users can fortify their hands against needlestick and laceration injuries, eliminating a potential hazard from their roster.
Level F Cut Resistance
Level F cut resistance is the highest available on the market. You cannot find better. Level F is the difference between a blade slicing straight through your glove, causing serious damage to your hand, and the tip becoming lodged and jammed between the highly resistance, tightly woven fibres that make up a cut-resistant glove.
SuperFabric Protection System
Serious about heavy-duty protection, SuperFabric was developed in 1996 as a solution for preventing needle and knife incisions. It is the layer that prevents a serrated edge, needle or blade end from breaking through your glove and causing serious injury to your hand.
Sandy Nitrile Coating Benefits
Sandy nitrile refers to a nitrile coating that has been treated with a tiny amount of sand to improve and enhance grip strength and stability. The sandy coating allows the hand to better grip material, reducing the chance for slips and drops.
