HexArmor SharpsMaster HV 7082 Needle Stick Resistant Gloves

The HexArmor SharpsMaster HV 7082 Needle Stick Resistant Gloves feature the highest needle stick resistance available due to their design and layering of SuperFabric materials and nitrile coating. As well as being extremely needle resistant, the  SharpsMaster gloves are also cut resistant to the highest level according to CE standards.

Main Features of the HexArmor SharpsMaster HV 7082 Needle Stick Resistant Gloves

The  Sharpsmaster gloves are made from three layers of 'SuperFabric' branded material -, a breathable, durable and lightweight fabric reinforced with an overlay of tiny armour plates. 

This fabric is then dipped 3/4 of the way in a nitrile coating for extra protection against needles. By design, the Sharpsmaster HV 7082 is comfortable and provides good dexterity but minimal grip. 

The gloves also have an added anti-microbial treatment which helps them stay fresh. The elasticated wrist helps to ensure and maintain a good fit and protects from dirt travelling into the glove. The nitrile coating can be seen in the image below.

EN Rating

These gloves are EN388 Certified Safety Gloves, scoring a 4533 in testing. See below for a breakdown of this testing. 

Please note that while there is no EN388 specific needle stick resistance test, the Sharpsmaster HV 7082 has been tested using a modified ASTM 1342 standard of puncture resistance using 25 gauge hypodermic needles.

Hazard Resistance Rating
Abrasion Resistant 4
Cut Resistant 5
Tear Resistant 3
Puncture Resistant 3

Sizing Information

  Safety Gloves Sizing Information Guide

In order to select the correct size of safety glove, simply measure across your palm at the point indicated in the picture. Then compare your measurement with the chart below to ensure that you select the correct size of glove for your hand.

We would recommend using a tape measure or ruler to get the right measurement. Our measurements are based on centimetres.

Where your measurement falls on the boundary of two sizes, we would recommend selecting the larger of the two sizes for a comfortable fit. However, if you would specifically like your gloves to be a closer fit, perhaps for work that requires fine movements, select the smaller of the two sizes.

Glove Size 7/S 8/M 9/L 10/XL
Measurement across palm 7cm 8cm 9cm 10cm
Product Code HEX7082/S HEX7082/M HEX7082/L HEX7082/XL

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.
