What Are the MaxiCut Ultra Gloves For?
These gloves have been specially designed to provide top levels of mechanical resistance while remaining flexible and thin for optimal dexterity. Some industries and environments they are recommended for include:
- Airport Security
- Car mechanics
- Component handling
- Glass handling
- Materials handling
- Chemical processing
Please note that this is not a definitive list. The MaxiCut Ultra Gloves are suitable for most dry condition handling applications, regardless of whether high levels of mechanical protection are required (not including puncture resistance).
How Cut Resistant Are These Gloves?
Featuring a liner made with a combination of glass, nylon and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, the MaxiCut gloves are light and thin yet offer outstanding levels of cut resistance. They achieve the top level of cut resistance according to old EN 388 standards and a mid level of cut resistance according to new standards.
The test for the old rating involved applying a circular blade to the gloves, and measuring how many cycles it would take for the blade to cut through the material. In the new standard, increasing levels of force are applied to the material to see how long it takes for a sharp-edged blade to cut it.
What Applications Are the MaxiFlex Gloves Suitable For?
The MaxiCut Gloves perform well in a wide range of handling tasks, whether or not they involve high level mechanical risks. Tasks they are well suited to include:
- Light handling
- Heavy-duty handling
- Precision handling
- Tactile handling
- Dry handling
- Outdoor handling
- Handling rough and coarse materials
- Handling sharp materials
- Handling smooth materials
- Handling small materials
How Do the MaxiFlex Ultimate Gloves Protect Your Hands?
These gloves offer outstanding protection against mechanical risks. Their resilience can be proven by their EN 388 score, which demonstrates cut, abrasion, tear and puncture resistance. Their broken down EN 388 ratings are listed below:
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 5 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Blade Cut Resistance ||Level C |
What Does This Mean?
If you aren't familiar with EN 388 ratings, these numbers may not mean much. The gloves achieve Level 4 which is the highest possible level for both standards. They therefore offer resilient protection against scratches and scrapes and have impressive longevity due to their resistance to such damage.
They also achieve the highest possible level of cut resistance, as well as a reasonably high level of blade cut resistance. This means they can protect users from lacerations during applications involving sharp materials such as glass or sheet metal. Many gloves that are this lightweight do not offer such impressive levels of protection.
How Much Grip Do These Gloves Provide?
The GRIPtech technology of the Ultra gloves utilises a micro-cup finish for a more secure grip. This grooved surface catches against that of lifted object, preventing them from slipping out of the wearer's grasp.
How Much Dexterity Will the MaxiCut Ultra Gloves Provide?
With an ultra-thin design, a close fit and a thickness of only one millimetre, the Ultra Gloves enable great all round hand dexterity. This makes them suitable for the secure handling of both large and small objects.
How Comfortable Are the MaxiCut Ultra Gloves?
Due to the innovative technology used to create these gloves, they are as comfortable as they are protective. They fit snugly around the hand and mimic its natural resting state. Fitted with a flexible partially made from nylon, they don't restrict the hand as it moves, helping to prevent fatigue during strenuous work.
How Much Tactile Sensitivity Do the MaxiCut Gloves Offer?
Using the latest in knitting technology, the fingertips of these gloves have been formed with a smooth texture and a rounded shape. They fit closely over the fingers for a high level of tactility, so users are really able to feel the items they hold. As a result, they have maximum control during handling applications.
How Breathable Are the MaxiCut Ultra Gloves?
To stop hands from becoming uncomfortably warm and sweaty, the gloves feature a 360° breathable design. This helps to promotes air flow so hands don't overheat even during extended periods of wear.
How Should I Store These Gloves?
Exposing the MaxiCut Gloves to excessive heat or direct sunlight can reduce their shelf life and affect their overall performance. They are best stored in a cool, dry place to stop them from becoming discoloured, cracked or faded. If cared for as recommended, they have an anticipated shelf life of 5 years.
