What Are the MaxiFlex Level 3 Cut Resistant Gloves For?
The MaxiFlex Gloves have outstanding resistance to abrasions and tears and a good level of cut resistance, making them well suited to a number of different working conditions. They are highly dexterous and offer a superb level of grip for maximum control during handling applications. Industries and uses we recommend these gloves for include:
- Car mechanics
- Component handling
- Local authorities
- Metal handling
- Public transport
- Railway maintenance
Please note that this is just a list of recommendations, and that these gloves would prove suitable in a far wider selection of tasks than those mentioned. They are suitable for most manual handling environments involving rough materials, or where there is a risk of lesser cut injuries.
How Cut Resistant Are the MaxiFlex 34-8743 Gloves?
The MaxiFlex Gloves harness CUTtech technology to provide improved cut resistance without reducing comfort or dexterity. This technology combines and blends high performance yarns and fibres to create a cut resistant material that does not depend on excessive bulk or density. The gloves are also reinforced between the thumb and forefinger for improved cut resistance in these areas and extra-protection in an inherently weak section of the glove.
Due to these attributes, the gloves achieve a medium level of cut and blade cut resistance according to EN 388 standards, and can therefore protect against minor lacerations. They should NOT be used for handling very sharp materials, but can offer protection from lesser cut damage in rough work environments.
Why Should I Trust the MaxiFlex Level 3 Grip Gloves?
For proof of the resistance against physical risks that these gloves offer, they have been tested to the EN 388 standard. This standard demonstrates their resistance to abrasions, cuts, tears and punctures. Their results when tested to EN 388 (mechanical protection), are listed below.
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 3 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 3 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Blade Cut ||Level B |
What Do These Scores Mean?
These scores are rated out of 4, except cut resistance which is rated out of 5, and blade cut resistance which is rated from A - F. According to this standard, the MaxiFlex Gloves achieve the highest possible level of abrasion resistance and a very high level of tear resistance. The gloves are therefore suitable for working with rough or coarse objects and are less likely to be damaged by such risks. In terms of cut resistance, the gloves offer a medium level of protection and are able to resist minor cuts.
How Much Grip Do the MaxiFlex Gloves Provide?
A strong, secure grip is vital during manual handling applications, especially when dealing with materials or those that could cause physical injury. Designed for use in such circumstances, the MaxiFlex Gloves have a nitrile micro-cup coating that offers an outstanding level of grip. The cups have a rough texture which creates traction between objects and the gloves so they don't slip out of a user's grasp.
How Dexterous Are the MaxiFlex Gloves?
For a high level of dexterity, the MaxiFlex Gloves are made with a stretchy nylon and Spandex liner which fits snugly against the hand. Its flexible composition bends to the movement of the hands and fingers while its ultra-thin construction allows users to feel the components they work with. This construction enables better hand control for safer and more productive manual handling.
How Durable Are the MaxiFlex Gloves?
While the MaxiFlex Gloves may be lightweight and thin, they are also incredibly durable. Their flexible nylon liner is reinforced with glass and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene for a higher level of mechanical resistance. Additionally a nitrile rubber coating adds to their physical resistance, helping them to achieve fantastic levels of abrasion and tear resistance and a decent level of cut resistance. Due to their resistance to such damage, they have great longevitiy compared to many other lightweight handling gloves.
How Do the MaxiFlex Gloves Protect My Skin?
The MaxiFlex Gloves have been certified by the OEKO-TEX Association as skin safe from the second they comes into contact with the skin. This rating proves that the gloves can keep skin cool, dry and safe even in warm or uncomfortable working environments. The Skin Health Alliance have also rated the full ATG range 'dermatologically safe'.
