Well we did the test ourselves below!
VIDEO What Else Will the MaxiDry Zero Gloves Protect Me Against?
The MaxiDry Zero Gloves don't just protect you against cold and wet conditions. They are completely resistant to abrasion, and promise a high level of tear resistance that will ensure a high level of longevity too. While these properties protect your hands against mechanical risks, their coating can protect against oil and heat too, meaning that you can handle items that reach temperatures as high as 100°C.
Why Should I Trust These Gloves?
We've claimed that these gloves can protect your hands against water, cold, heat, oil and abrasion, however why should you trust what we say? Well, these gloves adhere to a number of different EN standards, which help to ensure the high quality protection of the gloves. The three standards that are relevant are demonstrated and explained underneath.
Hazard Level of Resistance Abrasion Resistance Level 4 Cut Resistance Level 2 Tear Resistance Level 3 Puncture Resistance Level 2 ISO Cut Resistance N/A EN 407
Hazard Level of Resistance Burning Behaviour N/A Contact Heat Level 1 Convective Heat N/A Radiant Heat N/A Small Splashes of Molten Metal N/A Large Splashes of Molten Metal N/A EN 511
Hazard Level of Resistance Convective Cold Resistance Level 1 Contact Cold Resistance Level 1 Water Permeability Level 1 What Does This Mean?
If you aren't familiar with EN standards, you could always check out our
Glove Safety Regulations blog category, where you'll find each relevant standard listed with a simple explanation of what you are looking at. Keeping it short, the EN 388 score means that the gloves can withstand the maximum abrasion possible, while good cut, tear and puncture resistance enables you to partake in medium risk activities with your hands protected. The EN 407 score means that you should be able to handle items that have a temperature of 100°C for roughly 30 seconds without your hands feeling the heat.
EN 511 score is all things call and wet, with the level 1 for water permeability meaning that you can submerge your hands in water for up to 30 minutes without your hands becoming wet. The convective and contact cold resistance means that these gloves are tested in cold conditions and show that you should be able to work in freezing environments without your hands starting to feel the bite. Can I Use the MaxiDry Zero Gloves with Food?
The MaxiDry Zero Gloves are suitable for use with food and meet standards EN 1866. This makes them well suited to work in a freezer or a cold store, where you may be expected to come into contact with frozen foods. See their food contact conformity statement by clicking on the link below:
How Flexible are the MaxiDry Gloves?
The nylon and acrylic lining mean that the MaxiDry Gloves are highly flexible, and should be well suited to handling tasks that require a little more tactility. This includes using equipment and handling tools, where the flexibility shouldn't pose a problem. Should you require an extremely high level of flexibility, then we would recommend you try the
Ejendals Tegera 295 Waterproof Thermal Work Gloves as they provide the same level of cold resistance with outstanding dexterity and sensitivity. How Much Grip do the Zero Thermal Gloves Provide?
They are designed with a nitrile coating that is textured with micro-foam and a non-slip grip, something that extends to the knitwrist and provides grip even in the oily, wet and icy conditions. This textured coating enables items to stick to your palms, helping to reduce the chances of dropping items when conditions are hazardous.
How Comfortable are the Zero Thermal Gloves to Wear?
Featuring a comfortable inner nylon and acrylic blend liner, these gloves are extremely comfortable to wear. They are quite snug, but an artificial lining remains soft around your hand which is ideal for extended use when the conditions are less comfortable. This soft inner liner keeps you warm too, perfect for use at work.
Will the Knitwrist Completely Protect My Wrist?
The MaxiDry Zero Gloves feature a knitwrist which is designed to offer a little warmth and protection. However the knitwrist is highly flexible for easy donning, and does not feature the same cold and water resistance as the rest of the gloves. If you'd like resistance that stretches up your wrists, take a look at our
Thermal Waterproof Work Gloves category, where you will find some gloves better suited to you. Are the MaxiDry Zero Gloves dermatologically Friendly?
The MaxiDry Zero Gloves are designed to be friendly to the skin, using something called HandCare to ensure that the chances of skin irritation are reduced. They are dermatologically tested to ensure skin health, while their sanitised design passed the Oeko-Tex gold standard meaning that it is industry recognised as been good for the skin.
