MaxiCut Ultra Level 5 Palm Coated Grip Gloves 44-3745

The Maxicut Level 5 Palm Coated Grip Gloves 44-3745 have been designed and developed as a 360 degree breathable cut-resistant glove. The Level 5 Palm Coated Grip Gloves combine high levels of cut protection with comfort, flexibility and dexterity for use in dry environments.

Which Size Do I Need?

The MaxiCut Gloves are available in four sizes, so most users should be able to find a good fit. To determine which size will fit your best, measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles (excluding the thumb) with your hand open and your fingers together as shown in the image below.

Please measure hand as indicated

Glove size Palm Circumference Palm Length
8 (Medium) 203mm 182mm
9 (Large) 229mm  192mm
10 (Extra Large) 254mm 204mm

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
  • Assembly
  • Automotive
  • Bricklaying
  • Building
  • Car mechanics
  • Construction
  • Component handling
  • DIY
  • Furniture
  • Gardening
  • Glass handling
  • Industrial
  • Inspection
  • Machinist
  • Masonry
  • Materials handling
  • Mechanics
  • Packaging
  • Packing
  • Plastering
  • Chemical processing
  • Utilities
  • Warehousing

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.

Performing very well in both the old and new tests, these gloves are capable of preventing injuries caused by sharp, hard edges. For example, they can be used when dealing with glass or sharp pieces of sheet metal.

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:

EN 388

  • 4542C
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.

Can I Wash the MaxiCut Gloves?

These gloves can be washed according to the instructions listed below, or in the PDF document provided:

  • Use commercial laundry soap (do NOT use dry cleaning solutions)
  • Wash in warm to medium hot water (in temperatures up to 40°C or 104°F)
  • Wash for 10 minutes
  • Rinse in cold water
  • Repeat wash and rinse if gloves are especially dirty
  • Rinse in cold water
  • Tumble dry (at a maximum temperature 60°C or 140°F)

Add several pieces of canvas to the second wash if dirt is deeply ingrained in the gloves. The friction the canvas creates will help dislodge the dirt particles for a more thorough clean.

Please note that the mechanical resistance of these gloves can be affected by washing. It is not recommended that you wash these gloves more than 3 times.

Gloves from ATG can be washed safely in the following way:

1. Use commercial laundry soap or detergent (do NOT use dry cleaning solutions!)
2. Wash in warm to medium hot water, do not exceed 104°F (40°C)
3. Wash for 10 minutes
4. Rinse in cold water.
5. Repeat wash and rinse if soiling is especially heavy
6. Rinse in cold water
7. Tumble dry - maximum temperature 140°F (60°C)

When laundering gloves that have especially heavy dirt or grease, include several pieces of heavy canvas in the second wash cycle - friction from the canvas against the gloves helps loosen and remove deep dirt.

IMPORTANT NOTE

During the use of gloves and the laundering process glove performance can and will deteriorate. For critical areas requiring cut and heat resistance tests need to be conducted after use and laundering to ensure that the performance criteria still meet the needs of those using the glove. Safety Gloves can accept no liability once gloves have been washed.

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.

Tough, comfortable gloves
Friday, 8 May 2020  | 

Not sure these were designed for gardening but I find them ideal for the tougher jobs - but they still allow good dexterity and are very comfortable. Haven't tested them out on Pyracantha though - fellow gardeners will know what a challenge that will be.

Hi Nichola,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your thoughts. As far as I can tell, these gloves are still available in sizes 7, 8, 9, and 10. We are reducing our stock of the size 11, however.

I hope that this helps.

Best wishes,

Hank at SafetyGloves.co.uk
