What is EN 374?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 374. 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 374. EN 374 stands for Protective Gloves Against Chemicals, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to chemicals and micro-organisms.

How Do I Read the EN 374 Score?

Understanding EN 374 takes a little but more effort than with other standards as it comes with different letters, numbers and symbols that represent different levels of protection against different types of chemicals. Some of the different things you may see include:

  • Symbol: Corresponds to the test that the products were subjected to
  • Type: Corresponds to how many chemicals the product was tested against
  • Letter: Corresponds to which chemicals the product was tested against
  • Number: Corresponds to how long the product can withstand the chemical

Where Can I Find Out More?

We try our best to make it clear in the copy which chemicals the product can withstand. However, if it isn't clear or if you'd like to know a bit more, you can see the Introductory EN 374 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.
