Where Can I Use the HexArmor ThornArmor 3092 Landscaping Gloves?
HexArmor ThornArmor 3092 Landscaping Gloves offer superb protection to the hands during gardening, handling plants and during industrial gardening tasks like landscaping, cultivation and arboriculture. Suitable environments and applications include:
How Cut and Puncture Resistant Are the HexArmor Gardening 3092 Gloves?
HexArmor ThornArmor 3092 Gloves provide the highest cut resistance possible (Level F), meaning that you can use them with jagged thorns, sharp cacti and prickly roses. Reinforced stitching and three layers of SuperFabric mean that you can have faith that the HexArmor Gloves will completely protect your hands. For reference, SuperFabric is the same material used in law enforcement gloves to protect the wearers hands from needles.
What Is SuperFabric?
SuperFabric is multiple layers of fabric separated by a guard, that prevents needles and other sharp items from reaching the skin. SuperFabric allows the gloves to act as a barrier between your skin, and needles, thorns and more. HexArmor boast that it was SuperFabric which allowed a major company to reduce their hand injury rate to zero.
Please note that SuperFabric is lined on the palm. The rest of the gloves does not protect against thorns.
Protection Ratings and Standard Specification
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 3 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 3 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level F |
Incredible Level F Cut Resistance Rating
Level F cut resistance is the highest rating awarded under EN 388. It is only awarded to incredibly resistant safety gloves. It indicates that a garment, glove or fabric can withstand an incredible 30 newtons of downward force applied by a sharp implement.
So, What Does This Mean?
In terms we can understand, a Level F glove makes the difference between your hand being slashed, cut or punctured and the tip of the implement or piece of equipment becoming lodged in the highly cut-resistant fibres that make up your glove. Level F gloves offer serious protection that can prevent life changing injuries.
Can I Use The HexArmor Gloves to Handle Tools and Machinery?
Despite their resistance to cuts, thorns and shrubbery, the HexArmor Landscaping Gloves retain dexterity and offer an impressive level of grip.
